    It will be interesting to see how this plays out as far as BC & CC are concerned. If she dumps his trashy old a$$ then maybe I'll throw her a bone.....she has to have heard/read the womanizing rumors and just dealt with them through the years, figuring that was part of the deal being married to Bill.

    I really think that she knew all about his disgusting ways but wanted her cozy, cushy life to stay as it was. I keep going back to that interview they did together and her pasted on, frozen smile and odd demeanor. I think she's known "what time it is" for a very long while and closed her eyes to his behavior. what a life.

    Oh to be a fly on the wall in their home right now. Or maybe they live separately.....I have no idea. But the constant scrutiny, rumors and whispers of the past few months, along with the media onslaught, certainly cannot be comfortable, that's for sure. JMO.

    When I read that Whoopi made the comparison between the BC victims & the Duke debacle I was furious! I guess she just enjoys the controversy.....not sure what her deal is. She is so far off course and disrespectful about this whole issue. I can't bring myself to watch the video as I know my blood will boil!

    I happened to watch Sister Act last evening....loved her in that movie - but otherwise I'm so done with her and wish she would just go away! The nerve!

    EXCLUSIVE: Bill Cosby may have to write model Janice Dickinson a personal check for $35 MILLION in damages - insurance company says it won't pay out for sexual misconduct if she wins civil suit

    Janice Dickinson sued Bill Cosby in May for defamation after he called her rape claims 'fabricated lies'

    Now insurance company AIG has slapped him with another suit claiming it is not liable for any money awarded to the former supermodel

    Cosby has a $35 million personal liability policy

    Years after the statute of limitations has run the ex-supermodel's only chance to hold Cosby accountable is the civil suit

    This week a 2005 deposition became public in which Cosby admitted to giving a woman Quaaludes before having sex

    'I was drugged and raped by Bill Cosby,' Dickinson said

    Dickinson has revealed photos of Cosby wearing a robe that she says were taken in the Lake Tahoe hotel where he raped her in 1982

    I feel so sticky everytime I see Bill Cosby on the news. Camille Cosby knew he was messing around. Whether she stayed for the kids (grown now) or for the money (She should have divorced his booty while he still had money).

    My SIL mother stayed around waiting on her husband to die for years. (He had a mistress around the block. He bought her a house around the corner from his wife's house. He left the real estate business to the mistress.) She knew. She won. (He wasn't a creeper rapist like Cosby.) She got millions in the estate.

    Yes Shep was ON IT!
    I felt the only reason JW voiced his opinion was because he was jealous of BC back n the day & IMO was enjoying giving the dirt...but Shep was relentless calling JW out for knowing BC was married & giving it a pass.Even after all the women coming forward?It appeared JW was more concerned with old Bill's legacy....Shep just kept firing!

    Bill Cosby Accuser Fires Back at Whoopi Goldberg: ‘He Raped Me’

    The Wrap Jordan Chariton July 9, 2015

    Lili Bernard fired back at Whoopi Goldberg on Thursday over “The View” co-host’s defense of Bill Cosby on the grounds that he’s innocent until proven guilty.

    Bernard said she has the utmost respect for Goldberg, but her claims are no “bull,” a word Whoopi used regarding the treatment she’s received for her support of Cosby.

    I have to back up and catch up...what was Goldberg's excuse for defending this pervert?

    He definitely is a pervert. I watched him on the tonight show and other shows where he acted inappropriate.

    There is enough footage on national tv to show that he's not right.

    He brags like a narcissist about his accomplishments. Unfortunately, he no longer has any accomplishments. He is no role model..by any means. He has set a horrible example for any man, woman or child. What a fake and how many years did this go on?

    I watched the video and what I could not get over is how at the end of WG's ignorant rant the audience - which is about 95% female gave what appeared to be a unanimous and loud round of applause. Had I been in the audience I would have been booing loudly at that point - if not before.

    There is no comparison between Duke Lacrosse - which involved just one accuser and the BC case which has up to 48 accusers by now and which has BC admitting in a deposition that he gave a date-rape drug to one of his accusers. WG says that "the law agrees with me" because BC hasn't been charged. Hasn't she heard of statute of limitations? WG is as stupid as she is unfunny. Hard to believe that millions tune in each day to hear her take on the world.

    Innocent until proven guilty. The American courts agree with her. He hasn't been arrested. He's not in jail. Mothers of sons have to agree with her because the Duke University lacrosse team never raped anybody.

    I know, right? During one pause when I think the audience would usually clap they didn't do anything and at the end they didn't appear to be clapping enthusiastically. I wondered what the producers had to do. I would have gotten up and walked out.

    Nope, it was the benefit of thirty something doubts- not "a doubt".
    And you still are expressing the idea that some women are lying about Cosby.

    Totally dismissing their worth- yes! Because someone is more famous? Ask if that EVER made them a better human being, LOL. If I had such poor judgment, I'd keep my opinions to myself.

    So the "best" is that forty random women were cruel enough to lie? Or is the "best" reserved for the rich and famous because you had a notion you "knew" them?
    I cannot for the life of me see how that is looking for the best in people- but I am counting the victims as people too.

    With all due respect, you've spent months dismissing, minimizing, and justifying. I have neither the time nor inclination to post links to your statements but off the top of my memory, I've seen posts made by you that claim vengeance, altered memories, personal responsibility, waiting too long and all sorts of other reasons these women weren't believable. It's all examples of victim blaming.

    I get waiting for the truth to come out - but that's not what you did. I get wanting to presume innocence - though I'd argue the court of public opinion hardly hinges on a legal presumption. It IS possible to support people who are claiming they are victims without demonizing the alleged suspect. You wait for the facts if you must but in that waiting, you also don't incur further harm by continuously questioning the 'motives', lifestyles, memories, choices, histories, etc. of those claiming to have been victimized. Because let me tell ya, from personal experience - it is the very reason people don't speak up.

    Please imagine - your trust in someone else has been broken; your body has been violated; you feel ashamed, dirty, and stupid for not knowing better - while in reality, you were probably manipulated by a sexual predator. You keep all that yuck inside until you feel it's going to crush you so you finally confide in someone...only to be told maybe you shouldn't have worn your blouse with a button open, or perhaps you don't remember what happened clearly; or maybe if you'd made better choices it may not have happened. Most people who are sexually assaulted are victims of someone they know - someone they trust - even sometimes, someone they love.

    In so much as we have to remember innocent until proven guilty, we too have to accept that regardless of either conviction or acquittal, it does NOT mean a crime didn't occur. It doesn't mean victims don't deserve to be supported and validated until and unless there is a reason not to. As has been pointed out numerous times, false allegations of sexual assault are very, very rare - why make all victims pay such a heavy price for the sins of a few liars? (2% according to the FBI, well in line with false allegations of most major crimes) Why, how, does anyone expect a victim to prove they've been a victim in order just to be believed that they've been victimized?
