Julie Chen pregnant but won’t leave Big Brother

Big Brother host and increasingly self-aware and human-like robot Julie Chen is pregnant with her first child, and she’ll pull a Heidi Klum and host Big Brother 11 this summer.

On the Early Show this morning, Julie announced, “I am expecting my first child. So it wasn’t a big Sunday at the buffet table. I’m starting to show now! And my due date is Oct. 4.” She’s married to CBS CEO and president Les Moonves.

Julie also said, “I’m not taking maternity leave from (the CBS show) ‘Big Brother.’ I e-mailed my boss over there this weekend and I said, ‘Don’t worry. I can still do the show!”

Well, in fairness, you could never really do the show, but that’s why we love you, Julie.
