As the Bill Cosby scandal continues to make national headlines, more celebrities who know the comedian personally are being asked to take a stance.
During a recent appearance on “Meredith,” actress Vivica A. Fox offered her take on the controversy. She started by praising her “Celebrity Apprentice” co-star Keshia Knight Pulliam for the way that she handled being questioned about the controversy.
“[She handled it] like a class act,” said the 50-year-old reality star. “It’s part of it that they would attach her name to Mr. Cosby because they have history together.”
She went on to say that during her time spent with Cosby, he never behaved inappropriately.
“I’ve worked on ‘The Cosby Show’and was honored to do the show,” she added. “I have to agree with Keisha: The man I met was nothing like the man they are describing. He was nice, kind. There were no sexual overtones.”
Lastly, Vivica expressed her support Cosby.
“I defend him, and I stand by him as well, too.”
It’ll be interesting to see how the public and Cosby’s accusers respond to her comments.
