There was a big question mark hanging over Julie's future with CBS following the firing of her husband Leslie Moonves from the network earlier this year. 

When she stepped aside from her post on daytime talker, The Talk, it seemed like she was gearing up for an exit from Big Brother. 

Thankfully, that's not the case, and the celebrity edition will debut Monday, January 21 before concluding with a two-hour finale on Wednesday, February 13. 

The concentrated edition of the series pits celebrities against each other in the battle for the cash prize, resulting in less time to make deals with more than one eviction per week.
