A little over a decade ago she was virtually unknown, but Sofia Vergara had Bill Cosby's undivided attention when she gave an interview on “The Late Show” in 2003.

The “Cosby Show” star was filling in for a then-ailing David Letterman, and he couldn’t seem to help himself when it came to ogling the future-“Modern Family” star.

Long prized for his comedic genius, Eddie Murphy received the Mark Twain Prize for humor at the Kennedy Center Honors in Washington DC last night (October 18).

The “Coming to America” star was thrilled to win the accolade, mentioning that Bill Cosby was a previous recipient as well.

He spent season after season with Bill Cosby on the set of “The Cosby Show” and Malcolm-Jamal Warner is worried about how the comedian’s indiscretions will affect the legacy of the beloved series.

While chatting with the Associated Press on Thursday (October 8), the 45-year-old actor noted, “My biggest concern is when it comes to images of people of color on television and film, no matter what … negative stereotypes of people of color, we’ve always had The Cosby Show to hold up against that. And the fact that we no longer have that, that’s the thing that saddens me the most because in a few generations the Huxtables will have been just a fairy tale.”

Over the past year, more than 50 women have come forward to accuse Bill Cosby of rape and sexual assault, and although he hasn’t been convicted of any of said crimes, Fordham University has decided to revoke his honorary degree.

On Thursday (September 24), the school released a statement- “The University has taken this extraordinary step in light of Mr. Cosby’s now-public court depositions that confirm many of the allegations made against him.”

His public profile is at an all-time low and Bill Cosby is in danger of having several career-highlighting honors stripped away.

Project Islamic Hope has petitioned the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce regarding the 77-year-old entertainer, who has been accused by more than two dozen women of sexual assault, asking that his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame be removed. Furthermore, Cosby’s Medal of Freedom is also in question.

He’s been tangled up in a legal quagmire for quite some time and Bill Cosby actually admitted to using Quaaludes and other sedatives to get women to have sex with him during a testimony back in 2005.

According to the Associated Press, the previously-sealed court documents confirm that the “Cosby Show” star confessed to obtaining the drugs for sexual purposes.

She always has the craziest stories, and Chelsea Handler told Esquire magazine that more than a decade ago she almost fell victim to accused sex offender Bill Cosby.

The 40-year-old comedienne explained, "Oh, I was in Atlantic City playing, doing standup, and he was doing standup in Atlantic City in the same hotel, and at like three o'clock in the afternoon, someone from the hotel came down and said, 'Oh, you know, Mr. Cosby would really like to meet you up in his hotel suite.' And I thought, 'That's really weird.' This was like 10 years ago.”

It’s no secret that he’s facing a multitude of sexual assault charges from decades ago, but that’s not stopping Bill Cosby from taking his comedy show on the road.

The “Cosby Show” star just booked more gigs, and he released a promotional video on “Good Morning America” on Monday (March 9).

Continuing to splash headlines, Bill Cosby received another reckoning of public backlash from NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt earlier this week during the Television Critics Association panel in Beverly Hills, CA.

While chatting with colleagues about Bill's recent sexual assault allegations, Greenblatt told reporters that Cosby isn't welcome back to the network, which once housed the "Cosby Show" from 1984 to 1992. When a reporter asked Robert if it's safe to say that NBC won't work with the 77-year-old again, he replied "Yes, I think it's safe to say."

His sexual assault allegations are well-known the world over, but Bill Cosby isn’t content to sit back and shut up. The “Fat Albert” comedian performed at Budweiser Gardens in Ontario, Canada on Thursday night and during his set he made a joke referencing the claims that decades ago he got girls drunk and drugged them before raping them.

When a woman from the audience got up and began walking out, Bill asked her where she was going. She replied by telling him she was getting a drink and offered to get him one too. But Cosby pointed to his water bottle and then replied, “You have to be careful about drinking around me,” as a sarcastic comment about his accusers.
