One of the most successful women in the history of television is detailing the years of harassment she suffered while working for Les Moonves.
Linda Bloodworth was coming off the massive success of her Emmy Designing Women award-winning show when she met Moonves, who she says halted her deadly career in her tracks.
It would be seven years before she went back to work. He writes in The Hollywood Reporter, as Moonves relayed all the pilots he wrote while marking the programs focused on women who had become a staple of the network.
"Thanks to Les Moonves, I can only guess that they became vaginal smears in CSI Amarillo's crime labs," writes Bloodowrth.
Bloodworth also claims that one of the biggest stars on television told her that Moonves forced herself to do it a day after making her cry.
Those tears were the result of Moonves telling her that she was too old for her own show, says Bloodworth, who described the philosophy of the new CEO expelled by saying: "Why would I want to kick them out if I do not want to f *** & # 39; em? & # 39;
Moonves has denied having sex with women against her will, as well as sexually harassing any employee.

Speakig out: Linda Bloodworth (up in 2014) said that Les Moonves looked at her like Charles Manson when he met him, and stopped his career in its tracks
Fall from grace: Moonves was a misogynist, says Bloodworth, who after telling an actress that she was too old for television, forced her tongue to stick in her throat while crying (Moonves and his wife Julie Chen up in July)
Bloodworth, who started as a writer on the iconic M * A * S * H * series, had a $ 50 million contract with CBS when Moonves took over as chairman of the network.
Moonves was temperamental, says Bloodworth, and he enjoyed screaming: "I will tear off the top of your head and piss your brain!"
He also heard that he was a "fan of topless bars" when he met the new president at a table read for his new driver.
Bloodworth sat in front of Moonves at the table she writes, with the star of the show at her side: future accuser Illeana Douglas.
"I had not experienced such a menacing look since Charles Manson tried to look at me daily when I was a young journalist covering that essay," Bloodworth writes.
"As soon as the pilot was completed, Moonves informed me that I would not be picked up, I was at the pinnacle of my career, I would not work again for seven years.
However, he was in good company, as he writes that Bette Midler was rejected by Moonves once when he approached her to do a show for the network.
Bloodworth eventually left, he was not willing to write the kind of show that Moonves wanted her to explain, with characters saying, "Is that a missing breast implant, Lieutenant?" and "Yes, sir, we also found cards in your uterus."
His agent told Moonves the news, and after being told that the network would receive a large penalty payment, he asked the president if he had any message to convey to Bloodworth.
"Tell him to go fuck himself," Moonves said.
"The truth is that Les Moonves will never be punished in the way he deserves." He almost certainly will never go to jail, "writes Bloodworth.
"And he has already won hundreds of millions of dollars during his very successful and truly immoral, intimidating and misogynist reign."
Later he added: "We do not care anymore if you go to jail or you go to hell. I only know at some point that you're leaving.
Bloodowrth also thought of the deceased executive who made his life a hell: "[I]despite the fact that I was raised to be a true southern female, and with your recognition that I have never, in my life, told you a single word, despite the way you treated me, I can just say, channel my best delivery of Julia Sugarbaker: "Go fuck yourself!"
Like the night the lights went out in Georgia.

Moonves may have been forced to resign as CEO of CBS Corporation, but he will not leave the company despite accusations of sexual assault committed by 13 women.
A presentation presented by CBS to the US Securities and Exchange Committee obtained by DailyMail.com on Monday revealed that Moonves would stay for up to two years to help advise the company in order to ensure a smooth transition.
That presentation also revealed that in his position Moonves would receive his own office and a security detail, paid for by CBS.
CBS will also place $ 120 million in a trust that will be awarded to Moonves pending the outcome of two investigations into these allegations.
And the $ 20 million that Moonves allegedly donated to several #MeToo charities is actually coming out of the pocket of CBS Corporation.
– Sir. Moonves agreed to perform transitional advisory services for the Company for one year after his resignation (or, if prior, until the date on which the Board determines that the Company has the right to terminate his employment for cause) in order to provide smooth transition of your duties, & # 39; reads the presentation.
"In order to facilitate such transition services, the Company will provide Mr. Moonves with office services and security services for up to two years after his resignation."
The presentation also reviews Moonves' compensation package, though it does not go into detail about how it might be affected by the investigations, other than whether it is authorized to receive the full amount owed to it under its contract.
"Within thirty (30) days after the Completion Date, the Company will also contribute $ 120,000,000 to a granting trust," he says.
"In the event that the Board determines that the Company has the right to terminate Mr. Moonves's employment for just cause under his contract of employment and Mr. Moonves does not require arbitration with respect to such determination, the assets of the trust of grantor will be distributed to the Company and the Company will have no further obligations to Mr. Moonves & # 39;
Just before that, the company reveals that they will cover the charitable donation.
Within thirty (30) days after the Completion Date, the Company will make contributions for a total amount of $ 20,000,000 to one or more charitable organizations that support the #MeToo movement and equality for women in the workplace, organizations that have been designated by Mr. Moonves in consultation with the Company ", declares the presentation.
That line seems to contradict the statement made a day earlier by the company in a press release.
"Moonves and CBS will donate $ 20 million to one or more organizations that support the #MeToo movement and equality for women in the workplace," the statement said.
"The donation, which will be made immediately, has been deducted from the severance benefits that may be due to Moonves after the ongoing independent investigation conducted by Covington & Burling and Debevoise & Plimpton."
