This 'Celebrity Apprentice' Contestant Got Fired In Part for Not Reaching Out to Bill Cosby
SPOILER ALERT! Do not continue if you haven’t watched tonight’s episode of Celebrity Apprentice.
Keshia Knight Pulliam, best known for playing Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show, was fired from Celebrity Apprentice this evening after being admonished for not requesting Bill Cosby‘s help in donating money for the episode’s challenge.
The challenge required that the celeb contestants contact their rich friends to raise money for a bake sale. Keshia was her team’s project manager, and despite her team asking her to contact Bill, she refused. Bill wasn’t mentioned much after that.
“I have not talked to Bill Cosby on the phone in I don’t know how long. So for me to pick up the phone, having not talked to you for five years, except for when we run into each other for a Cosby event– I feel that’s not my place to do,” she said.
“I really believe, if you’d called that gentleman, he would’ve helped you, even if you hadn’t spoken to him in years because you were an amazing team with one of the most successful shows ever. So I think it would’ve been a very good call to make for charity. But you have to take responsibility. I think you agree with that,” Donald responded.
It’s important to note that this was filmed before many of the Cosby rape allegations became very public.
This show was taped just before the terrible Bill Cosby revelations came to light.She still should have asked him for money-goes to charity.
