The Bill Cosby train wreck interview series just made another stop – err crash.
The mounting sexual assault and other allegations against Cosby were not discussed – an article on the website says it was “not long after Martin’s interview with Cosby that a number of women came out and accused Cosby of drugging them and raping them.”
The interview did occur weeks after Hannibal Buress called Cosby a “rapist” on stage so it’s not exactly clear why that wasn’t brought up at all.
Martin and Cosby did discuss Cosby’s famed TV role as Dr. Cliff Huxtable on The Cosby Show. Martin tells Cosby it was “always great to watch the interplay between [Cliff] and [Claire Huxtable.]” Thats’ when it gets weird.
Cosby leans in and proceeds to tell Martin that Ahmad Rashad, Phylicia’s ex-husband, “messed that thing up.” Cosby, referring to Cliff and Claire’s on-screen chemistry, continued:
When he married her I didn’t mind, but then she got pregnant and I didn’t want Cliff and Clair to have another kid. So we had to hide her body, which took me away from — took Cliff away from touching her and playing with her because I didn’t want the audience to see that.
It’s probably not a good idea for Cosby to give interviews where he laments not being able to touch a woman on-camera. But that’s none of theGrio.com’s business.
