Cosby’s TV wife Phylicia Rashad finally speaks out about rape allegations


Bill Cosby’s wife Camille has already spoken out in support of her husband despite mounting allegations from over 30 women, and now the comedian’s TV wife from The Cosby Show, Phylicia Rashad is giving her opinion about the shocking situation.

When speaking to Showbiz 411 at Selma event, the 66-year-old actress who portrayed Clair Huxtable from 1984-1992 said she “didn’t want to become part of the public debate,” but said she had never seen Bill Cosby exhibit any behavior in their 8 season run as a TV couple that suggested he’s capable of what he’s been accused of. She thinks it’s all a big conspiracy.

“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.”

Phylicia also defended Bill’s wife Camille. “This is a tough woman, a smart woman,” she said. “She’s no pushover. Someone is determined to keep Bill Cosby off TV. And it’s worked. All his contracts have been canceled.”
