Julie Chen Reveals Having Surgery On her ‘Asian Eyes’

CBS news anchor Julie Chen admitted Wednesday that she had plastic surgery in her twenties to make her eyes look “less Asian.” Chen recalls an experience as a reporter in Ohio when the news director at her station told her he would not put her in the anchors' chair because her Asian features made her look  less relatable and engaging to the show’s audience in Dayton, Ohio. With dreams of being a news anchor, Chen underwent plastic surgery to widen her eyes when she was 25-years-old. At 43, she is now revealing her secret.

Time Inc.'s Executive Suite Was Where 'Ideas Go To Die,' Says CEO

Time Inc. CEO Joe Ripp just took the helm this month, but is already proving to be an approachable leader.  He told employees in a town-hall style meeting that he plans to spend more time around the building and less time in the executive suite where he believes, “ideas go to die.” Ripp added that if he had his way with the suite, he’d “close that damn thing down.”

And rumors are circulating that “America Live” host Megyn Kelly could assume Sean Hannity’s role in the 9pm hour. Fox has yet to officially release the new primetime lineup.
