Bill Cosby’s TV wife, Phylicia Rashad, has kept mum on the whole allegations of years of sexual assault thing plaguing the comedian, but at the prodding of Showbiz 411’s Roger Friedman, she’s reconsidering her previous position not wanting “to become part of the public debate.” So where does she stand? Firmly in Camp Cosby. Of course, it’s not enough for Rashad to just dismiss the accusations from the numerous women claiming Cosby abused them over the last few decades, she also has to suggest some sort of greater conspiracy going on. “Forget these women. What you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it’s orchestrated,” Rashad says. “Someone is determined to keep Bill Cosby off TV. And it’s worked. All his contracts have been canceled.”
As for her old gig, “The Cosby Show,” Rashad says, “This show represented America to the outside world. This was the American family. And now you’re seeing it being destroyed. Why?” Maybe it’s the Illuminati?
