Bill Cosby Kicked Out of TV Hall of Fame
The bad news for Bill Cosby continues. This week, the Television Academy announced they have removed the 80-year-old disgraced comedian from their Hall of Fame. His name was also removed from the list of honorees on the website and a statue of his likeness will not return to the Plaza after renovations are completed. Cosby had been a member since 1992. Earlier this month, he was found guilty of aggravated indecent assault.
Cosby faces up to 10 years for each of the three felonies he was convicted of. Sentencing is expected in the next two months, and until then Cosby remains free on $1 million bail. The judge in the trial confined Cosby to his Pennsylvania home until he is sentenced.
In other news, Cosby has been quietly selling off his LA real estate, which includes two Santa Monica properties for a combined $26 million, according to reports.
One of the properties is a two-story, 8,668-square-foot brick building currently listed at $20 million. Cosby also owns a separate parcel of land up the street for the two-story building and it is on the market for $5.7 million. The lot is 6,024 square feet and has the potential for a 4,018-square-foot building.
In September of 2015 he sold a 9,500-square-foot building at 3008 Main St. for $11.8 million. All three of these properties are tied to C.O.C. Real Estate LLC, which lists Cosby’s wife, Camille, as its principal. It is unclear why Cosby is selling his portfolio.
