Bill Cosby has surprisingly come out in the media yesterday to speak on behalf of his lifelong friend Bill O’Reilly who is facing a number of sexual harassment allegations.
Bill Cosby’s public outcry came as surprise to most as he had been media shy since he became embroiled in a criminal sex assault case this year, after more than 50 women came forward in 2015 claiming the comic drugged, raped or acted inappropriately against them.
“ I’ve known the guy for 40 years. He’s a decent, polite guy with the right kind of attitude towards everybody. I’ve always thought of him as a true gentleman, especially around women ”

“We used to party a lot in the 90s. I know people think he is a frigid conservative kind of guy, but at the time he was a wild party animal. The girls were all over him” he added.
“We even used to date the same women, on the same night,” he joked around during the 7-minute phone interview with the Hollywood Enquirer.
Experts believe that Bill Cosby coming out in defense of his old friend won’t help the former Fox conservative TV host.
