Too Late? Phylicia Rashad Defends Bill Cosby

After what some might have called a deafening silence from his “Cosby Show” co-stars, Bill Cosby has gotten not one, but two staunch defenses of his character this week.

Keshia Knight Pulliam, freshly fired from Celebrity Apprentice, spoke up for him during a Today Show appearance.  And while she didn’t discount the accusations of the women, she shared that the man being described in the press is not the one she knew on set.

And now, Phylicia Rashad (aka “Clair”) from one of the most famous sitcoms in history has told Showbiz 411 the following about her one-time TV hubby:

“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.”
