Camille Cosby has finally broken her silence and released a statement regarding the alleged sexual allegations against her husband of 50 years, Bill Cosby. Camille has remained silent throughout this controversy and her stance on the entire situation could easily be summed up with her demeanor during Cosby’s last interview with AP–she was poised, but stoic and clearly there to support her man no matter what.
In her statement, Camille let it be known, “The man I met, and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love, is the man you all knew through his work. He is a kind man, a generous man, a funny man and a wonderful husband, father and friend.” She continues, “A different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months. It is the portrait of a man I do not know.”
Camille’s statement compares the “Rolling Stone” article about the rape at the University of Virginia that turned out to be untrue to Cosby’s alleged accusations being reported by the media as truth. Maybe this is why Cosby opened up and chastised the Black media and demanded that we be “neutral” in our coverage of Cosby’s alleged assaults. While this would a undesirable position for any wife to be in, Camille understands the platform that she’s stood on with Cosby for 50 years and after those 50 years, it’s hard to believe that Camille would have any other reaction other than support for her husband.
There’s dynamics in this marriage that we will never understand. Cosby’s infidelities may have just started making headlines, but if these accusations are true, he’s been taking advantage of his power on young hopeful women throughout his marriage with Camille. A cheating husband is difficult to ignore (especially if he was drugging and assaulting women over the years), especially if Cosby was bringing them to the home he shared with Camille, as supermodel Beverly Johnson alleged.
CBS is reporting that Camille released the following statement:
Who is the victim? Aren’t there at least 20 women who have come out against Cosby?
