Following the recent revelation that Bill Cosby offered women Quaaludes for sex, former The Cosby Show actor Joseph C. Phillips has stepped up to declare that the rape allegations against his childhood idol are true.
In a blog post titled “Of Course Bill Cosby Is Guilty!” Phillips, who played Cosby’s son-in-law Martin Kendall on the series, recalls his admiration for the comedian as a young actor and divulges details of private things he learned while on set.
“He was my boyhood idol. His influence on my life has been profound. I owe much of who I am to Bill Cosby, so the idea of love seems to fall short of exactly how I feel,” begins the post. “The Cos was a ladies man, but also good father and husband — devoted to his wife and children. Bill was educated; he collected art and was fluent in jazz. After my father, Bill Cosby was the man I aspired to be. Few get an opportunity to meet their idol, much less work with them. I was blessed in that regard, and even more blessed that I found my idol as clever, kind and brilliant as I had imagined.“
