Camille Cosby speaks out in major interview for the first time in six years!
Producer and wife of Bill Cosby recently sat down with ABC News after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled to reevaluate the case that led to Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction.
In a telephone interview on Tuesday (June 23), Camille spoke with anchor Linsey Davis over the phone saying:
“My first reaction is hopefulness.”
“Possibilities now. Finally there is a court that has said, ‘Wait a minute there are some problems here, they can be considered for an appeal.’ I’m very, very pleased. It’s not 100% but now I’m looking at something that is possible. Possible for vindication.”
Mrs. Cosby adds that although her husband is holding up “very well” in prison she still has concerns that he could come into contact with COVID-19. She also says she talks to Bill on the everyday but decided it was best that she didn’t visit him in prison.
“I do not want to see my husband in that kind of environment, and he does not want me to see him in that kind of environment.”
According to reports, the court will take a second look into whether or not his past sexual misconduct allegations against him were admissible at trial because he wasn’t charged nor convicted over the allegations. The bad side of it is that this also includes the review of evidence of a 2005 deposition where Cosby admitted to drugging women with the intention of having sex with them, but later argued that he would’ve used his Fifth Amendment rights if he knew that it would be used against him years later by prosecutors.
Mr. Cosby is currently serving a three-to-10-year sentence and has denied all allegations of sexual assault and sexual misconduct. Cosby claims in his appeal that he was stripped of the right for a fair trial because of the “hysteria of the Me Too movement,” and wife Camille also agrees stating:
“The Me Too movement and movements like them have intentional ignorance pertaining to the history of particular white women — not all white women — but particular white women who have from the very beginning, pertaining to the slavery of African people, accused Black males of sexual assault without any proof.”
“By ignoring that history they have put out a lie in itself and that [lie] is ‘Because I’m female, I’m telling the truth. Well history disproves that as well. And gender has never equated with truth so they need to clean up their acts.”
Mrs. Cosby also talks activism, police brutality, and much, much more.
