Phylicia Rashad has commented for the first time about recent allegations of sexual assault made against her former TV husband, Bill Cosby. In an interview with Showbiz 411, the actress -- who played Clair Huxtable on "The Cosby Show" -- said she felt the allegations were part of a larger plot to destroy Cosby's career.[/ltr]




[ltr]"Forget these women," she said. "What you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it's orchestrated. I don't know why or who's doing it, but it's the legacy. And it's a legacy that is so important to the culture." Rashad later added that she thinks someone is trying to "keep Bill Cosby off TV."[/ltr]




[ltr]"And it’s worked," she said. "All his contracts have been cancelled." A sitcom that Cosby was developing with NBC was halted in the wake of renewed sexual assault accusations against the 77-year-old in November.[/ltr]




[ltr]Rashad also defended Cosby's wife, Camille. “This is a tough woman, a smart woman," she said. "She's no pushover."[/ltr]




[ltr]In a statement released in December, Camille Cosby compared the allegations made against her husband to the botched Rolling Stone article investigating campus rape at the University of Virginia.[/ltr]




[ltr]"The story was heart-breaking, but ultimately appears to be proved untrue," she wrote. "Many in the media were quick to link that story to stories about my husband -- until that story unwound. None of us will ever want to be in the position of attacking a victim. But the question should be asked -- who is the victim?"[/ltr]




[ltr]The couple's daughter, Evin Cosby, also defended her father to the press.[/ltr]


Quote :


[ltr]He is the FATHER you thought you knew. 'The Cosby Show' was my today's tv reality show. Thank you. That's all I would like to say :).[/ltr]



[ltr]Rashad's comments come on the heels of those made by another one of Cosby's former's co-stars, Keshia Knight Pulliam, who played Rudy Huxtable on the show. During an interview with "Today" on Monday, Pulliam said she ultimately could not speak to what has happened.[/ltr]


Quote :


[ltr]What I can say is this: I wasn't there. No one was there except for the two people who know exactly what happened. All I can speak to is the man that I know and I love. The fact that he's been such an example, you can't take away from the great that he has done. You know, the amount, the millions and millions of dollars that he has given back to colleges and education, and just what he did with 'The Cosby Show' and how groundbreaking that was...Ultimately, they're just that, allegations. You know, it's very much been played out in the court of public opinion. But we're still in America, where ultimately you're innocent until proven guilty. I wasn't there. That's just not the man I know. So I can't spea[/ltr]

Good for her backing him up.
I don't know if it's true that he did these things. But I'm not saying they aren't either. There are always 2 sides of the story. So I dunno.

Im glad she is backing him up.
After all of these stories and searching more and reading more, I am starting to step to one side of the fence and its definitely on his side.
The sheer fact that most of these women are recovering drug addicts and money hungry (famedly so) and seeking limelight makes it that much more unbelievable.

Even if all of these allegations turned out to be true, there isn't much they can do. Too much time has passed. I am a proof person and they have no proof at this point. It seems to me like they are trying to ruin his career and that's not right. He's a 77 year old man and time is not on his side anymore. Shame on them if this is all a lie!

Gimme proof. I mean it may or may not have happened. But show me proof. I was initially against him, but now, I think half of them are money hungry twits.
