When asked why anyone would want to destroy Bill Cosby, she responded, “That’s my question, too.”Rashad’s words have reverberated far and wide, and while there has been the aforementioned criticism, she’s also being lauded by others who feel she’s dead-on in her “assessment” regarding the assassination of Dr. In the middle of all of that past suffering and present-day conflict, this Cosby bomb was dropped. No one seems to know who that is—or why they would want to do such a thing.Aside from general “They wanna bring a black man down” sentiments, there has yet to be any substantive argument for why this would be happening right now.They could be made public if either Rashad and Johnson fails to abide with the terms.— Former model Johnson, who reportedly made 0 million in her divorce from New York Jets’ owner Woody Johnson, filed for an expedited procedure last month after she and Rashad, who once was married to ‘s Phylicia Rashad, signed off on a settlement.Two of the star’s Cosby Show castmates offered very telling—but very different—responses to the allegations that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted numerous women over the course of almost 40 years, dating as far back as 1965 up through 2004.Actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who famously played Rudy, the youngest daughter of the Huxtable family, offered muted support to her former TV dad.
This was the American family."She later walked back the “forget these women” quote during an appearance on ABC’s World News Tonight following widespread criticism ("What I said is, ' This is not about the women.'”), but she held firm to her belief that her former TV husband is the victim of a conspiracy. Her statements have been shared throughout social media, oftentimes with hashtags like #TRUTH and #Thank You, from those who somehow find solace in her saying what virtually every Cosby Truther has been saying for weeks: “It’s a conspiracy,” but also “I don’t know who would want to do this or why.”The Cosby scandal bears so many earmarks that are all-too-familiar to the black psyche: contempt for black success, the taboo of black men sleeping with white women, mixed with more contemporaneous issues such as the overzealous contempt for President Barack Obama in Red State America, and the last six months of civil unrest regarding the killing of unarmed black men at the hands of police. But at the heart of this “Truther” conspiracy theory is the idea that “someone” wants to destroy Bill Cosby.They know they will face either a swift backlash or deafening silence.Because Bill Cosby is a “great man.”Following Pulliam’s statements, a much more disconcerting statement came from Rashad, who shared the most screen time with Cosby on that show and its successor, the moderate CBS hit Cosby, and who’s still viewed as half of one of television’s most beloved partnerships.“Forget these women," Rashad told Roger Friedman of Showbiz411 during a luncheon at the Metropolitan Club in Manhattan.In January, reported that Rashad suddenly found that his fob and access codes into the Bears Club and marital mansion no longer worked and he was escorted out by security.He is, however, expected back at the club for the April 27 wedding of his pal Michael Jordan.They were married in a lavish ceremony in 2007 in New York City. As far as high-profile divorces are concerned, this one was a breeze.A source familiar with the case tells me Johnson gets to keep her million-home at The Bears Club, Jack Nicklaus‘ fancy community in Jupiter, and Rashad keeps his 0,000-home in Frenchman’s Creek in Palm Beach Gardens.“They haven’t gone out in public,” one source told me.“They are sneaking around.” (Rashad’s manager did not respond to questions about the relationship, and the White House declined to comment on Jarrett’s personal life.)…Could romance for President Obama’s most trusted adviser be one reason Health is so sick?Not sure where White House aide Valerie Jarrett may have met football star-turned-broadcaster Ahmad Rashad (fka Bobby Moore before he converted to Islam), but we do recall her boss describing the Islamic call to prayer as “one of the most prettiest sounds on earth at sunset”.
