Keshia Knight Pulliam Defends Supporting Estrange TV Dad Bill Cosby On First Trial Day
Remember when our POTUS was a reality TV boss? There was an episode of The Apprentice when he fired Keshia Knight Pulliam because she couldn’t bring herself to dial her former television dad’s phone number to ask about a charitable donation. Keshia herself said that she hadn’t spoken to Cosby in years. In fact, she said it wouldn’t make sense to her, since she only interacted with him as a small child and only “saw him at Cosby events.”
That was only 2 years ago.
Just yesterday she stepped in to escort him into his first day on trial for rape.
Keshia defended her decision, answering everyone’s pondering question of WHY? E! News reports:
“I came to support [Cosby] because this is where you hear the facts. This is where the truth happens.” Ultimately, it’s easy to support someone and to be in their corner when things are great. When things are good. But…true family, friendship, integrity is how people show up and support when things aren’t looking so great, when they aren’t shining.”
Keshia considers herself true family to Cosby today, in her words. Bill took a moment to thank his “tv daughter” on social media. Another bizarre gesture between the two.
Do you think this seeing little Rudy support her ‘dad’ on trial with affect anything in the courtroom?
