When dozens of allegations against Bill Cosby came back up in 2015, everyone had an opinion on America’s Dad, including America’s Dad’s children. For example, Rudy Huxtable made it real clear that she loves Bill Cosby, and will most likely be tearfully tossing a Jell-O jiggler onto his coffin when he dies.
Around that time, Zoe Kravitz gave an impromptu statement on behalf of Denise Huxtable (her mom Lisa Bonet), saying that it was news to Lisa and that she was “disgusted and concerned.” Lisa is finally talking for herself, and says she isn’t surprised.
Bill Cosby is on the loose in the streets of Philadelphia, presumably bumping into shit. He’s been parading around town sporting his Eagles regalia for sports ball reasons. According to Deadline, he also had a gig at a local jazz club where he held court to an audience of tens, told stories and jokes and even sat in on the drums. It was his first official public appearance since his trail for the alleged rape of Andrea Constand ended in a mistrial. A retrial is scheduled for April 2.
“Bill Cosby Schools You On Rape Allegations” is something you’d expect to see on a Learning Annex sign outside of a Holiday Inn conference room in the Ninth Circle of HELL. But apparently, that’s something you may see on a sign outside of a theater near you. This is like Ole’ Sleazy Puddin’ Pop’s rendition of O.J. Simpson’s If I Did It. The devil is real.
Last Saturday, a jury in Norristown, PA told the judge in the Bill Cosby trial that they couldn’t reach a decision regarding the three charges against him. The judge declared a mistrial. Bill isn’t out of the woods yet; the Montgomery County district attorney says they will retry him.
Bill Cosby, aka “a major sign that your childhood is not only dead but also a lie,” won’t be self-righteously scolding the younger cons in gen pop for their pants sagging too low in the back just yet. Five days of deliberation by the jury in his case for sexual assault has resulted in a mistrial. Hang on to your Jello Pudding Pops, this horror’s never going to be over. Continue reading
We haven’t really covered the Bill Cosby rape trial, because only so many palate-cleansing puppy videos exist on YouTube. But on June 5, a jury in Norristown, PA began hearing the criminal case against Bill Cosby. Like a thousand other women (I’m obviously underestimating that number), Andrea Constand, the former director of operations for Temple University’s women’s basketball team, accused Ole’ Sleazy Puddin’ Pop of drugging and sexually assaulting her at his mansion near Philadelphia in January 2004. Cosby was hit with three charges of aggravated indecent assault. The trial lasted six days and most of that was spent on the prosecution presenting their case. Cosby’s defense team only took six minutes to present their case and called one witness. I’m surprised they took six minutes. That seems like a long time. I would think they’d just tell the jury, “Now, do you really think that the beloved TV dad you grew up with would ever be guilty of something other than wearing wacky sweaters?!” Cosby didn’t testify.
CNN says that the jury started deliberating on Monday night and after spending a total of 31 hours trying to decide if he’s guilty or innocent, they shuffled into court today to shrug at the judge and let him know they are deadlocked.
