Published: Wednesday 7th Jan 2015 by David


‘The Cosby Show‘ star Phylicia Rashad has spoken out in defence of onscreen husband Bill Cosby this week, blasting those who claim to have been sexually assaulted by the star.

Her words below…

Speaking to ‘Showbiz 411’, she revealed:

Forget these women. 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.

What do you make of Rashad’s comments?

      Claps hands******** ! This is a legacy and like every black / African legacy it always seems to be fought against or slandered with some sort of wicked ness and lies! MrCosby Continue being a great black man that the culture can continue to live up to

        Rashad brought ZERO to the interview. Just flirtatous glarry eyes, and deep rooted voice with a sense of enttilement and arrogance.Her demeanor is authority and intimidation . She snubs the women who have come forward , rather talks about the cosby legacy. And that it will be tarnished. Rashad loves the R word. RESIDUALS. At the peoples award, cosby was booed and he booed them back and smiled like he just swallowed the canary. Rashad keeps saducing cosby with her glarry eyes. IMO.

    Yes it’s very important to black culture to be as disgusting and sexist as white privilege and power. Sit down trick! Zero respect for women who defame r*** victims and defend abusers. Can you say that to Beverly Johnson’s face?

    • madbrax January 7, 2015

      please provide actual proof he’s an abuser. until then, sit down trick!

      • Paulo January 7, 2015

        shut up, ho. I’m not Justice I ain’t got s*** to prove. but if you’re too stupid to google and actually read and cross-analyze various piece of news and testimonies from different women, then shade’s on you. the news portrayal of black people is abusive and downright cruel but to stand up for a black r***** is stupid when black women are statistically more vulnerable to s** offenses than white women and are more likely to not report the crimes. so yeah that’s the message Phylicia Rashad, Keshia Knight-Pulliam and others are sending to black women… sit down and stand by the men even as they slap you in the face and f*** you without consent. just sad. have several seats and a book, stupid trick.

      • SMH January 7, 2015

        Only a stupid trick would automatically believe allegations that have yet to be proven. I don’t care how many times you google.

      • Paulo January 7, 2015

        … just like I don’t care about your font yet here you are, replying to me again. do you actually know how hard it is for victims of sexual abuse and r*** to come forward and be brave enough to press charges? of course you don’t, you’re too busy being a stan on the internet. f*** off.

    • SMH January 7, 2015

      Um, she already did, hence her statement. Now trick, you can sit down.

      • Paulo January 7, 2015

        ooh was that an attempt at reading? lmao pathetic

    • truth (icki is on the radio cryn cause THEPINKSHIT Flippidy flipidy FLOP!!! January 7, 2015

      Eat her AND my pusssy

    She better be careful telling the truth. However anyone with eyes can see how history is repeating with Bill Cosby and Michael Jackson, just like the media is controlling and reflecting Whitney Houston before she died with Mariah Carey. Sad days. 🙁

    • NENE January 7, 2015

      Preach girl

  5. QUEENB January 7, 2015

    I strongly belive this the industry and the media doing what the do best destroying and innocent black successful man.

  6. Sean January 7, 2015

    Yes the racist media r**** dozens of women. You people can’t possibly be serious and think this has anything to do with race. It don’t matterr if Bill was white, black or purple what he did was wrong and too many accusations against him to not be true.

    • SMH January 7, 2015

      Bullshiit. And you’re in denial if you think this has nothing to do with race. Stephen Collins from Seventh Heaven ADMITTED that he was a child m*******, yet the media hasn’t said one thing bad about him and they have yet to drag his name through the mud like they did to Mr. Cosby over UNPROVEN ALLEGATIONS. It amazes me how white people think that racism is imaginary when they’re always the ones being racist.

      • Paulo January 7, 2015

        Media portrayal =/= actual crimes. the fact stupid media is trying to cover up for a white r***** should be called out over and over again… but why is that used as motiff to stand up for a black r***** instead? throw both their asses in jail. period.

      • Sean January 7, 2015

        Maybe cause Bill Cosby is like the Beyoncé of tv and nobody knows who the f*** Stephen Collins is? That’s like comparing a celeb of Bey’s caliber to Eve

    • truth (icki is on the radio cryn cause THEPINKSHIT Flippidy flipidy FLOP!!! January 7, 2015

      I hope yo mammy was one

  7. SMH January 7, 2015

    If anyone would know what’s going on behind the scenes in this situation, it would be Miss Rashad. She has no reason to lie whatsoever and nothing to gain from lying. All these women accusers, and yet not one of them has proven their story to be true. That speaks volumes.

    • teri January 12, 2015

      Rashad is protecting her assets. RESIDUALS. She brought ZERO to the interview. Only hot air.

  8. truth (icki is on the radio cryn cause THEPINKSHIT Flippidy flipidy FLOP!!! January 7, 2015

    Yes hunty..those THOTS r lying

  9. RAn January 7, 2015

    Ms Rashad is right. We are having the biggest race relations issues sinces the 1990’s and the media was able to silence the biggest voice.

    What Bill Cosby has been preaching is that white america is targeting the Martin’s, Browns, and all those that fit the black thug culture.

    I not saying Bill wasn’t a ho, or gigolo nor did he not partied them women but all these allegations are orchestrated by some WHITE MAN trying to destroy his legacy.

    I’m with Phylicia; people will do, or say anything for money……FORGET THESE WOMEN! They all lying, broke and need to pay them coke bills they racked up…..

    • teri January 12, 2015

      If you have been thrown away like yesterdays garbage and never to be seen again how would you feel.Also a few of these women are BLACK. These women came to testify against Mr. pudding pops .
      Cosby show cancelled. What …NO LIABLE LAWSUIT AGAINST THESE WOMEN WHO ACCUSED HIM OF R***? REALLY. IMO , he feels hes untouchable. Just listen to how he talks even at his latest peformance.With such command and authority. Nope , Rashad I aint buying it dude ranch, you love the R word.. REISDUALS.

    The Cosby Show is a TV masterpiece, point blank period…I could cry thinking about what it has done for my life…people don’t even realize how psychological and nuanced it was…it was so on point that it’s just crazy…how did they manage to get EVERYTHING right? The Cosbys were family to EVERYONE, no matter your color or background…over 30 million people watched the show at its peak…Mrs. Huxtable was beautiful (FLAWLESS), poised, confident, career driven and family oriented….Cliff was handsome, career driven, hilarious (CHILE), and a TRUE father…80’s babies and 90’s babies were so lucky 😉 I’m an 80’s baby, so I’ll speak for us…people talk about the effects of TV all the time…but if you were a parent and you sat your child in front of The Cosby Show, you couldn’t have done any better…it connected in a way for me that I can’t even put into words…everyone involved with the show were so talented…I remember the episode that a little Alicia Keys was on (youtube it), not even thinking she would be giving me life and I would be buying her albums one day lol…little Olivia was obviously plotting world domination and to be a multi-millionaire one day 😉 It’s not even fair to say ‘they don’t make em like they used to’ because The Cosby Show is just on a whole nother level entirely…Bill and Camille Cosby put so much talent, positiveness, love, african-american perspective, culture and excellence into every frame of that show…and I thank them for it…
