Bill Cosby, Monster

Interesting article on Ken Levine's blog about what an asshole Cosby was to work for, but the really interesting tidbits are in the comments section. It's worth a read.

One of the comments:

i worked for The Tonight Show during Johnny Carson's reign and when Bill Cosby was a regular Monday Guest host filling in for Johnny. One particular Monday when Cosby was guest hosting and I wasn't more than 19 years old, I had the ONLY bad experience in my 9 years working on the show.

Cosby, Mr. Playboy Jazz Festival showed up early to listen to the Tonight Show Orchestra rehearse in the late afternoon. As Im standing by Doc Severinsen's podium, I kiddingly said to Mr Cosby: Good luck to your Sixers, but i think the Lakers are going to take this one. HE WENT APESHIT ON ME. Here I am a little girl in essence (only girl crew person in my career infancy) and he got right in my face screaming profanities at me pushing his chest out assaulting me while yelling at me! (over a basketball game? Come on!) It got so bad, violent, perverted, mean and frightening my guys from the crew and band members jumped to my defense saying to him is your career worth this, for gods sake she's a little girl! He was so in my face I truly feared he was going to hit me. Eventually the security took him from the studio until time for his monologue. Ive known for 30 years that Bill Cosby is a bully, crazy, untalented, pushy, racist, mean and and egocentric asshole! Ill spit on his grave when he dies and that couldn't happen soon enough!

I saw him once on a plane. The plane was held up for him and he came on last wearing tennis gear and holding a tennis racket. He sat in the first row. He ignored everyone when they spoke to him, including the flight attendants. He then said something like "can't you people leave me the 'f-k' alone" or something like that. He was very, very rude. Everyone on the plane was shocked and Cosby didn't care that everyone saw and heard him.

He had pretty significant insight and keen observation about relationships between kids and their parents and turned that into entertaining comedic stand-up routines and later in his sit com. He was also arrogant, pompous, and proved to be a major hypocrite.

I read somewhere that he tended to avoid speaking to white people when possible. The example given was in a parking garage somewhere, there was some sort of issue that needed to be addressed, but Cosby would only speak to the black attendant there in order to try to straighten the situation out, even though there was a white manager present who was obviously the boss of the black attendant.

But what was up with casting those high yellow actresses as his daughters? The older daughter (can't remember her name) who appeared in Season 2 was extraordinarily fair, she could pass for Southern European.

Another profoundly conflicted asswipe who is and always has been just plain nasty (the sex shit, the hypocrisy, the "Call me DR. Cosby" crap) because he confuses respect with genuflection, and NOTHING is going to be enough for him, ever.

But, beyond that, I smell twat in the rendering of the anecdote. She probably was uncivil and too familiar to this self-important asshole, and he called her on it. And the description of Armageddon she provides sounds like a typical girly embellishment of the big bad man treating her like a guy, after she provoked him. Plus these twats never let go, ever. She WILL go spit on his grave, and have it filmed as she's doing it. And of course the posts about Phil. fans are right. Crazy v. Crazy here.

But screw Mr. Cosby anyway. His smugness has ruined every performance he's ever given, except the ones where it has just been him with kids and he's dropped the act.

I saw that Emmy broadcast with Sykes and Cosby was just plain rude to her. It was a moment when she came out into the audience to just make jokes and stick the microphone in front of some people. At some point, Cosby DID say something along the lines of "We spoke English." Now, I DO love Wanda Sykes and SINCE that time I have learned that her humor, although she uses that "sassy black woman" accent thing, is smart and clever and that she is bright, not some dumb pop-eyed throwback to Amos and Andy. But she wasn't QUITE as well known at that time. And I could SEE how someone could mistake what her "schtick" is for an Uncle Tom thing. Until you give her a few minutes.

But, good holy christ, Cosby could have been polite and nice and SHOWN BY EXAMPLE, even if he did not like her act. And she is MILES funnier that Cosby and could have handed him his ass on a platter in his BEST days, in my opinion.

Re: Ebonics. The distinction needs to be made between what is a language and what is appropriate language to use in any given situation. Linguists still disagree as to whether "Ebonics" (most linguistics refer to it as Black Vernacular English or BVE) is a language or dialect--no need to get into the technical stuff of linguistics, here. What is true is that what is called "Ebonics" has grammatical rules, marks tense in ways that are understandable to its speakers and listeners, and has a lexicon (vocabulary) that carries meaning for its users. Its rules are not the rules of what we call Standard American Language. But it is NOT ungrammatical--any more that the fact that English doesn't mark for singular or plural second person (you) in the way that most other Western languages (all the Romance languages, German sometimes yes sometimes no) do. Interestingly, we see an attempt to mark number this way in such slang terms as "youse" or "you-all."

Whether it's smart for speakers of Ebonics to use it when speaking to non-users (particularly in work situations or other situations where SAE is the language used by most speakers) is another issue for debate. And before we get too worked up, it's useful to remember that most Americans go to other countries and are angry when people there don't speak OUR language. Yes, we tend to have economic power that makes it incumbent on others to know English, but that doesn't make it somehow "right" in a purely linguistic sense.

And, yes, Cosby strikes me as a dick of the highest order. Could never listen to his monologues as a kid for very long, thought the Fat Albert stuff got old fast, and couldn't sit through any of his sit-comes.

I thought the Ebonics business was designed to get grant money to schools which had a significant portion of the student body speaking non-standard English. The state had grant or program money available to schools with significant student populations whose primary language wasn't English. Some school or schools was/were trying to get some of that money to fund their own language programs. If I understood this properly, they weren't justifying they use of non-standard English, they actually wanted to remedy the language skills of their students.

I always heard that Cosby had some "help" with the writing of his dissertation/thesis (rumor was that his wife did much of it)--have no idea if that is true or not, though I worked with people who graduated from UMass who swore it was.

Incidentally, I have two Ph.D.s (different disciplines, obviously--and still not sure it was worth doing both). Where I teach, most students either address their teachers as "Professor X" (since not all college professors have doctorates--there are fields where a professional masters is the terminal degree) or by our first names. Fine with me either way--I always say they are welcome to call me by my first name as long as they understand they there is still a power differential at the end of the day (i.e. I still give the grade). The older I get, the more likely they are to address me as "Professor X" or "Dr. X" (no, my last name is not X)--sigh. What we non-MDs usually don't care for is when people (usually our students' parents) simply call us "Doctor" (no last name)--it feels like I am expected to treat their illnesses.

Why am I here? The gay gossip and pointless bitchery, like everyone else. What, you don't college teachers enjoy those things, too? We learned from masters, Aunt Penniman.

I have no doubt that he can be a douche. All celebrities are. I've worked with a few. They live in a complete bubble where they expect to be coddled and praised and treated with kid gloves.

You're right, R74. It's devastating no matter what the cause. Yet, I think there is a difference, but not in the way R65 thinks. I think it is actually more difficult for parents to accept that their child was the cause of his or her own death.

Remember the people who believed there was such a thing as the Smiley Face Killer(s)? That there was a killer or killers roaming the country killing college age young men by pushing them into bodies of water and then tagging the area with smiley faces. There were parents who insisted that's how their sons died. Yet, there was no credible evidence to support it. What the evidence pointed to was their sons drinking too much and doing something careless (going for a swim in deep rivers, climbing up on the railings of bridges, etc). It seemed easier for them to believe that someone murdered their children than to believe that their children were engaged in reckless behavior.

Did he think he was helping me? That putting me on the spot like this and making me struggle was somehow good for me? If Bill really knew me, he'd know how much I'd overcome just to be there.

I had a personal experience with Dr. Cosby quite a few years before the tragic murder of his son Ennis. I was a very tall, blond, fit F/A working in First Class from DFW-LAS. After the bulk of the service was completed, he felt perfectly comfortable and welcome(no) to join me on my jumpseat as I hurriedly woofed down my crew meal. GREAT. Being mashed and propositioned was nothing new for me, and I am not a prude. But I was literally freight trained by the man. He wanted me to join him at the hotel at which he was performing for the duration of the gig. I politely attempted to demur, stating that I was involved and I would not engage in any sort of pairing with a married man. I am telling you that man worked me with the subtlety of a jackhammer for the rest of the flight. So, he definitely has no bias against white women if they appeal to him. I just found him gross, but not arrogant or mean spirited.

On one other point, I love the history and usage of Ebonics. I see it very much as I do Cajun, pidgin Hawaiian, Geechie and other regional dialects. I agree, one would be well advised to utilize the King's English while in a business or educational environment, but why not have the option to communicate with ones family and peers in a common language?

No one would criticize a Hawaiian for the accepted use of their native pidgin with their fellow islanders. Why does the speaking of Ebonics bother Caucasians so? Yep.

Saw him on the Tonight Show some years ago with Leno. He came on and was upset that he had just come off a flight and found out that during the flight when he asked for wine it was from a small poptop can and not a mini bottle. It was like, "How dare they." The audience seemed a little stunned that he would be upset over that.

My friend, who's white FWIW, has a local radio show about jazz and blues and somehow got introduced to Bill Cosby. My friend invited him on the show thinking it would probably never happen, but Cosby came on the show and actually sat and talked with my friend for over two hours about music. My friend's daughter, who's 7, was in the office and Cosby asked if he could talk to her and she had a wonderful time talking to him. Apparently he was really sweet with her.

That's my Cosby story.

My Cosby experience was through some elderly relatives.

They had written to NBC to request tickets to his TV show, they received four tickets, they gave two to their neighbors.

At the time, the show was being filmed at the Kaufmann Astoria Studios in Astoria Queens, Kaufmann was located near my relatives home.

It was a very bad rainy day, the people with the advance tickets, which my relatives and their neighbors had, were required to stand in the rain almost for an hour. Everyone on that line assumed they were going inside, these were not stand-by tickets.

A security guard was about to check the tickets, but just as this long line of people were about to be let into the studio, two private buses from some black organization pulled up.

The tired people who had waited on that long line in the rain, were shocked to see the people from the buses were being immediately escorted into the studio. The people on the line were furious, all of them, mostly white and Hispanic people, were turned away.

My aunt wrote to NBC with photocopies of the tickets added to her letter, she received no response, let alone an explanation as to why guaranteed seating meant nothing as soon as those buses pulled up. NBC/Cosby's production company wasn't even courteous enough to send them replacement tickets for another filming.

This incident spoke volumes to me about Cosby's hatred of the 'little people' especially white people.

I'm sure my aunt was not the only one to complain about this incident, she heard others say they were going to write or call NBC to complain. Unfortunately, this happened pre-cell phone cameras and pre-digital cameras, so one one was there to record what was going on, then immediately email the photos to NBC.

Really? If it's YOUR TV show, you had better damn well know what the fuck is going on re how your FANS are being treated by the people you have approved to work for YOU! I can't believe anyone can be so clueless.

You mean to tell me, the people in charge, who Cosby most likely hired and approved/knew of their actions, had nothing to do with two full buses of black people being let inside the studio before the ticket holders were? My aunt told me, "Even the security guys were stunned when the people from the bus were quickly being let in as ticket holders waited in the rain for so long."

I refuse to believe that the legit ticket holders would have been bumped had those buses been filled with white people. I always thought Bill Cosby was a racist, though it appears he became more upfront about it as he aged.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with my reading comprehension, I also have an incredible memory for details. I do remember exactly what my aunt told me about this incident. I remember how upset she was, especially, having waited for the tickets, then waiting forever on a line.

The fact that her letter re-counting the incident wasn't even acknowledged by anyone within the Cosby organization, or at least by someone at NBC who was handling audience relations, was the ultimate in rudeness.

Celebrities seem to forget without fans they are nothing, it's true, but it's never discussed. No one gets famous and rich because a handful of people enjoy their work.

Each time I answered the phone after our initial conversation, we asked to speak to Yolanda, my coworker, who is black. She was on the phone yapping and laughing with him.

I waited for him to offer a suggestion on how things could be improved or talk about the importance of education or discuss the importance of having a plan. He didn't do any of that, he just ranted as though all these poor black people stuck in a cycle of poverty and crime needed to just stop being poor. He behaved as though they were an embarrassment to him personally. It was odd.

People still try to pull this stunt, even with the internet. I just got into an argument on HTF with a guy who insisted there was some "PC thought police editing" of a show to remove a homophobic slur. No matter how many YT videos we show him that prove the original episode already had the edit (because even in the 1970s, the slur was unacceptable) he insists he saw it back in 1973 and KNOWS it was there.

I've seen that on a few Cosby show thread comments, too, people who saw some 1960s Tonight Show where X happened but there's no evidence the episode even existed.

Lisa Bonet seems to obviously dislike Cosby and stays away from him. Maybe he made some sort of pass towards her? And surely if Cosby was attacking or molesting women around the set, she had the opportunity to hear one of them talk about it. Maybe someone warned her to stay out of his way, and she realized what was happening and was very offended. Or maybe she threatened to go to the police and was bought off.

Maybe she came in contact with one of his victims and heard the story then. She's always been silent about why she dislikes him, but it's very obvious.

Not to mention the hordes of tarry little black warts all over his face. All that money and no aesthetic sense of himself whatsoever. Gross x 1000.

Whenever I saw Cosby in later years, I couldn't help but think of Dorian Gray. Still can't. Ugly on so many levels. As far as comedy, I'd take a Barry Humphries over a Bill Cosby any day.

I still say though, don't be surprised if what this is all really about is to discredit the women and their rape claims which will reinforce/invent new laws against women's rights. And the whole UVA thing is the manna his attorneys could only have dreamt of. A lot of people grossly underestimate how serious the social fundamentalists, religous and not, are in the world. They've turned back on civil voting rights and on women's access to safe, legal abortions. They've repealed gay marriage laws that had popular Yes votes. What better way than to say,"See what these feminazi's will stoop to in order to desroy a GOOD MAN?!"

Don't fans ever take a read on their favorite celebrity? I would absolutely never ask for an autograph but seems like you could get a feeling who is a bitch. From the OP's link...

You could kind of tell that Steve Allen would be a bitch and I would never even have considered approaching Cosby.

Bill Cosby should have faded into obscurity a long time ago. He is now just a boring old man. He bores the whole public. Next?

R219, Pill Cosby is anything but boring right now. He's fascinating.

[quote] Funny for a black person who clearly doesn't like white people, he targeted white women to drug and rape. He should be thrown in jail. He is a disgusting racist rapist.

Why is that strange? Rape is about power not "ooh, she's pretty".

R209 - watching Bill Cosby in some of those old episodes of "I Spy" - my heart fluttered and loins tingled. It may be somewhat hard to believe seeing him now or watching The Cosby Show reruns - but he was pretty hot when he was in his twenties. Maybe not drop-dead gorgeous....but the body was pretty beautiful and his face was a lot more handsome than it would be later on. He is just one of those guys who steadily lost their sexy with each passing that by the time The Cosby Show rolled around - there was practically nothing left.

What the fuck is wrong with Cosby's milky blue eye?

Is he a booze hound? He was never particularly attractive, but he's aged pretty badly in a way that I associate with big time drinkers.

by Anonymousreply 22602/28/2015

He could be one of those "functional alcoholics" - I wouldn't be surprised at this point.

And whatever he's doing may have intensified after Ennis' murder.

Bill Cosby sounds like a man who fully realized that the world is full of assholes.

[quote]And I don't think Lisa Bonet has had anything to do with him since she left A Different World

After she left A DIFFERENT WORLD (after just one season, 1987-1988) she returned to THE COSBY SHOW, believe it or not. Her storyline was that college wasn't for her. Then she left in the middle of the 5th season (1988-1989) to go to Africa. In actuality, she had to take maternity leave to have Zoe, her daughter with Lenny Kravitz. Denise returned from Africa in the first episode of the 6th season (1989-1990) with a new naval officer, Martin, husband and his daughter, Olivia. Bonet stayed on through to the end of the 7th seasons (1990-1991). Apparently, she had another falling out with Cosby, because though she's never seen again, she's often referenced throughout the rest of the show. It was especially weird when Martin & Olivia would appear without her, even more so in the very last episode when Theo graduated from NYU and everyone in the family was there, except for her.

I watched Cosby do a monologue on TV twenty years ago and he said "They say alcohol accentuates your personality. But what if you're an asshole."

Hard to find a bigger asshole than a rapist, who preys only on white women. He's saying, "Eff you whitey."

The NSA/DEA likes to use the following network adapters to hack into your computer to watch and listen to you in real-time: Microsoft Hosted Network Virtual Adapter, Microsoft ISATAP Adapter, and Microsoft Wi-Fi Direct Virtual Adapter. Go to Device Manager->View->Show Hidden Devices, then go down to Network Adapters. You can right-click and either disable or uninstall these adapters. I choose to uninstall them. You can always get them back by rebooting. In addition, make sure your microphone is disabled if you're not actively using it. Always disable your microphone through Control Panel -> Sound -> Recording. Right-click the microphone to disable it. Don't rely on microphone switches or quick buttons to disable your microphone because often times they don't work. You can check by speaking and watching the green bar indicator move. Also get a MAC address spoofer, like TMAC.

by Anonymousreply 24205/09/2016

Here is more proof that he is an asshole. As if you needed it. From his 1980s' show

- There is no way that Cliff could have gotten a wife as pretty as Clare. - He picked relatively untalented actors to play his kids. Why? So he could always be the clown, and they were basically "straight man" to him. - The actor/actress who played his dad and mom looked they were 5 years older than him. What an ego. - What kind of OB/GYN stays at home all day wearing ugly sweaters and taking naps?

I could go on, but I will stop there.

He was mean to Cockroach.

by Anonymousreply 24405/19/2017

Cousin Pam here again:

Also, if you pay attention to the show, there was always a lot of subtext where Cliff seemed jealous of his son Theo. He loved him, but didn't want him to be smarter than him, or more successful than him, or a better athlete than him.

Just sayin', this show made me aware that the man had deep issues...from way back...

Lisa Bonet could not act to save her life! She might be okay now, but on Cosby, she sucked.

Others who could not act : the model who played the mom on Silver Spoons, the model who played Rebecca/Becky on Full House, the girl who played the wife on Welcome Back Kotter. Their acting is so bad that I refuse to look up their names on Google. Okay Lori Loughlin played Becky.

by Anonymousreply 25305/19/2017

On The Cosby Show, I was aware that Lisa Bonet could not act to save her life.

Other horrible 70's /80's actresses: "Julie" on Welcome Back Kotter, Erin Gray or Gary on Silver Spoons, and Lori Loughlin on Full House. All painful to watch.

She was the worst of them. She made Alex Karras look like Sir John Gielgud, yet they probably wouldn't have made it to 1990 without her. And she was on [italic]Edge of Night[/italic] too as a teenager.

He's a piece of shit, true. But honestly, have you seen his wife? He cheated on her their whole marriage because she's a LESBIAN. She was probably more than happy for him to screw any other broad he could get his hands on. And yes, I believe she knew all along what he was up with with the drugging and raping, but as long as it kept him off her she was fine with it.
