Wendy Williams Claims Cosby Tried To Get Her Fired
Wendy Williams claims Bill Cosby attempted to have her fired. While discussing the sexual assault controversy that’s currently plaguing the legendary comedian, the former radio personality admits that in 1991 and 1992, Cosby tried to get her axed. Apparently, on-air, Wendy had discussed rumors that he had sexually assaulted women.
When asked about the now vintage situation, Wendy says:
No it just…it is what it is. It’s really uncomfortable. If people did not understand what I was saying back in 1992 and 1993 and now all of a sudden they’re coming late to the party. I’m exhausted, I’m moving on.
When pressed to share what happened, she explains,
I’m a young girl, I’m in my twenties, it’s like 1992 or 91. I’m on the air in the morning doing my gossip report, the GM is in his office — this is like seven o’clock in the morning. Cosby is on the phone talking to the GM. The GM is definitely agreeing with Cosby and figuring out what do we do with me.
She says that ultimately, because she was good at her job, she was not fired and was kept at the station.
