Bill Cosby’s wife, Camille Cosby, is standing behind her husband despite the allegations being claimed about rape by multiple alleged victims.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, the number of stories coming out about Bill Cosby’s alleged sexual activities are varied. For example, Joyce Emmons claims to have been drugged only to wake up naked next to Cosby. Michelle Hurd of Law qnd Order fame claims Cosby inappropriately touched her, and says that gossip circles have known about these types of allegations for years.
According to Glenn Beck, Cosby was “raped by the AP” when their reporters recorded a video discussing the rape allegations. As Bill Cosby’s wife Camille sat next to him, AP brought up allegations that the comedian had drugged and raped multiple women over the course of his career, when the original subject had been about the family’s art collection.
“I think you were told — I don’t want to compromise your integrity, but we don’t — I don’t talk about it,” Cosby said, essentially refusing to comment.
But when the interview had concluded Cosby, brought up the subject of integrity and asked the reporter to “scuttle” the questions about the rape allegations.
“Can I get something from you? That none of that will be shown?” Cosby asked.
During this exchange, Bill Cosby’s wife sat awkwardly while smiling. She nodded and grinned when her husband began lecturing the AP reporter about the integrity of media representation of events. Otherwise, Camille removed her microphone after the interview had ended and remained silent.
According to People, Bill Cosby’s lawyer, Marty Singer, has characterized the allegations as “coming out of the woodwork,” with many of the stories apparently being decades old.
“This continued pattern of attacks on Mr. Cosby has entered the realm of the ridiculous, with a purported ‘forceful kiss’ at a party in 1967, nearly 50 years ago, being treated as a current ‘news story’ and grossly mischaracterized as ‘sexual assault,'” Singer said. “This is utter nonsense. People coming out of nowhere with this sort of inane yarn is what happens in a media-driven feeding frenzy.”
The reaction to the AP video on social media has been varied, with some either supporting or criticizing Bill Cosby’s wife for standing behind her husband during this time.
Can’t even imagine what Camille Cosby is going through. God bless.

Watching that AP video w/ Bill & Camille Cosby, was less struck by his smugness & manipulation than by her apparently enabling support. — Only4RM (@Only4RM) November 21, 2014
Camille Cosby has yet to release a public statement regarding the rape allegations, although in the past she told Oprah Winfrey that she could not stand a lack of integrity.
“I just don’t like dishonesty,” Bill Cosby’s wife said. “I don’t like a lack of integrity. I think integrity should permeate every aspect of your life. And if you don’t have it, I’m going to feel it, and that’s the end of it.”
