We would've never guessed it, but Julie Chen has revealed that her granddaddy was a polygamist with NINE wives.
Julie unveiled the major secret as part of The Talk's Secret Week.
"[He] had nine wives, six of who bore him children. He had 11 children that we know of, countless mistresses. The reason we all have family secrets - and the reason we try to keep it a secret - is because it's often something that brings shame to the family. And my situation is no different. My mom tried to keep this secret from me and my two sisters for a long time, for as long as she could."
As we could all imagine, it was hard on Julie's grandma, who was the first of the wives and the fact that she couldn't leave didn't help either.
It was also hard on the host's mama because she was worried it would destroy Julie's career, but ultimately the polygamist apologized on his deathbed at 62.
Well, we might not all be from a line of polygamists, but we all have our secrets.
