Phylicia Rashad Says She Was Misquoted on Bill Cosby Defense

Phylicia Rashad is speaking out in a television interview after she was quoted as saying comments like “forget these women” to defend her former TV husband Bill Cosby, which she says were misquoted.

“That is not what I said. What I said is, ‘this is not about the women. This is about something else. This is about the obliteration of legacy,’” the 66-year-old actress said in her World News Tonight interview.

“I am a woman,” Phylicia continued. “I would never say such a thing.”

When asked to comment on the accusations that Bill is facing, she said “I can’t speak to those things and wouldn’t want to.” She did say that “what has happened is declaration in the media of guilt without proof.”
