Phylicia Rashad Speaks Out For the First Time About the Sexual Assault Allegations Against Bill Cosby. Report Says She Thinks It’s a Conspiracy…Against Cosby

Jan 7, 2015  •  Post A Comment

Phylicia Rashad, who played Bill Cosby’s wife in two sitcoms over 12 years, has told Roger Friedman at Showbiz 411 that she thinks the sexual assault accusations against Bill Cosby have been “orchestrated” to destroy Cosby’s legacy, and to keep him from being on TV again.

Friedman says Rashad told him “that in the years she’s known [Cosby], she has never seen the behavior alleged by the women who say they were drugged and raped, or sexually harassed. ‘Forget these women,’ Rashad 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.’”

According to Friedman, Rashad also said, “ ‘Someone is determined to keep Bill Cosby off TV,’ alluding to people other than the women. ‘And it’s worked. All his contracts have been cancelled.’”

Friedman adds, “We talked more about the legacy of ‘The Cosby Show.’ [Rashad said] ‘This show represented America to the outside world. This was the American family. And now you’re seeing it being destroyed. Why?’”

  1. All of the cast from the Cosby Show receive residuals when the show reruns, don’t they? That may be one reason why they are all coming out trying to protect “his legacy”.

  2. Hey Rashad not all those women are wrong and I just wonder how you would feel if it were you or your daughter that this happened to or are you jealous he didn’t hit on you? Oh but there is the residuals from the reruns you would not get if this blows up enough for them to be cancelled.

  3. Really??? I mean REALLY!!!!!!!

  4. I think Cosby was one of of the most successful business men in the field of entertainment in the world and i especially loved the Cosby show . I miss the man myself. I think it was a smear campaign myself and i find it funny how no-one said anything for years and then just like that they came to the light. Its just all lies.
