So I guess “Bye Phylicia” is the new “Bye Felicia.”
And now we’re once again being reminded that actors are not the characters they play on TV. Bill Cosby is definitely not Cliff Huxtable and Phylicia Rashad is not Clair Huxtable. Because Clair Huxtable would never, but Phylicia Rashad would.
Most of the cast of The Cosby Show have kept their lips glued shut when it comes to the allegations from the 20 plus woman who claim that Bill Cosby drugged and raped them. Keshia Knight Pulliam recently opened up her mouth about it and only said that she wasn’t there and she can only speak of the man she loves who created a legacy. Even Rudy Huxtable knew that it’s probably not a good idea to stamp the “LIE-TELLER” label on Bill Cosby’s alleged victims. But Phylicia Rashad doesn’t care and she went all out while speaking with Showbiz 411’s Roger Friedman.
During a luncheon for Selma in NYC, Phylicia threw all the side-eyes at Bill Cosby’s accusers and let it be known that she thinks he’s innocent and that he’s the victim of a plot to destroy everything he’s built.
“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.”
Phylicia didn’t stop there. She thinks that not only is this an assault against the innocent, angelic and beloved Bill Cosby, but it’s an assault against the American family.
“Someone is determined to keep Bill Cosby off TV. And it’s worked. All his contracts have been cancelled. This show represented America to the outside world. This was the American family. And now you’re seeing it being destroyed. Why?”
When Roger Friedman brought up the claims made by Janice Dickinson and Beverly Johnson, Phylicia let out an, “Oh, please.” Phylicia went on to suggest that Camille Cosby would never stand by a monster who raped women, because she’s a “tough and smart woman.”
Phylicia Rashad really got down to the bottom of EVERYTHING. Yes, a group of evil schemers have been hiding in the shadows and after they released the first accusations decades ago, they patiently waited to let it all out and completely destroy the memory of the TV show that went off the air over 20 years ago. That evil, shifty mastermind the Clabber Girl , who makes Royal Gelatin, was obviously behind it. She’d do anything to ruin the Godfather of Jell-O. Detective La Toya just handed her golden magnifying glass over to Phylicia Rashad, because Phylicia Rashad is a true master sleuth. You must call her Detective Clair from now on.
And Phylicia used a lot of words to say: “This is destroying my residuals. Let’s make it go away. The mortgage on my vacation house is due.“
