Cybill Shepherd says she rebuffed Les Moonves advances

- Legendary actress Cybill Shepherd says that disgraced TV executive Les Moonves, who resigned from CBS following accusations by at least a dozen female employees of sexual harassment, made sexual advances at her when she starred in the 1990s hit show, 'Cybill.'

"I’ll tell you something," said Shepherd on Wednesday during the FOX 5 NY morning program, 'Good Day New York.'

"I have a few stories to tell about Mr. Moonves. He didn’t get to me. My dad taught me how to play football in the front yard when I was six or seven."

While she acknowledges that she was not sexually assaulted, Shepherd did not go into detail about what did transpire with Moonves.

When asked if rebuffing his alleged transgressions hurt her career, Shepherd said emphatically, yes.

"I think my show ‘Cybill’ would have run another five years. He started cracking down. We did one menopause episode next one they said you cannot use menses, menstruation or even period. I fought for period so we could do it. Then it ended up in Newsweek in a little moment.”

Shepherd won her third Golden Globe award in 1995 for the show about a single actress in her 40s trying to get a big break.
