Another woman has come forward to reveal that comedian Bill Cosby drugged and raped her while on the set of The Cosby Show. This time it is Lili Bernard, an actress and writer who played Mrs. Minnifield during the last season of the show. Bernard joins the by now countless women who have come forward… More »
Everyday Feminism dug into the “Cosby Show” vault to present us with this spot-on Clair Huxtable speech about what really makes for an equal marriage. Gender stereotypes do not a happy marriage make! I could go on, but she’ll sum it all up for you much better than I could. [Everyday Feminism] … More »
Clair Huxtable. The name brings a smile to your lips by the time you even make it to the “X.” Phylicia Rashad played the TV mom that ruled most of our lives for close to a decade in “The Cosby Show.”
Even though her angelic looks made her endearing, Clair Huxtable’s no-nonsense attitude was enough… More »
Late-night reruns of “The Cosby Show” were my jam circa 2007, so naturally I am well-aware that Naomi Campbell appeared on the beloved sitcom… but were you?
