The following is from our good friends at “Access Hollywood.” Here’s part of an interview they did with Roseanne Barr about Bill Cosby that aired yesterday, Jan. 29, 2015. To read more of the interview at the Access Hollywood website, please click here.
Roseanne was asked if the allegations surprised her.
Roseanne: “No, because like everybody else — now I’m really [going to get] in trouble – but, you know, like every woman in Hollywood — there’s hardly any hairdressers or waitresses or working women who don’t know somebody. We’ve all heard it for a long time, and it surprises nobody.”
Asked why the allegations against Cosby are finally gaining traction now, Roseanne said it was because a man—comic Hannibal Buress—finally called out Cosby on them.
Saying that Cosby has “a billion bucks” she said, “I have hopes that he would just make it clean, and make it, you know, make it right, and I do think he could do that.”
Asked if Cosby’s legacy has been damaged by the allegations, Roseanne said, “”I think it’s damaged, but, I mean, there’s none of us alive who can’t go, ‘I made a mistake. I had a really bad problem and I’m fessing up to it. And here’s a scholarship.’ … You know, there’s a million ways around it to go. But there’s nothing more powerful than, ‘I am sorry.'”
