For those of you who don’t know your Cosby Show history, Lisa Bonet, who played Denise Huxtable, had a contentious relationship with Bill Cosby in real life. Cosby was also allegedly upset Bonet became pregnant by Lenny Kravitz and did a nude scene in the 1987 movie Angel Heart. She was reportedly fired from the sitcom in April of 1991, due to “creative differences.” Bonet has never appeared at any of the multiple Cosby Show reunions and she has barely spoken about her former boss — until now.

In an interview with Net-a-Porter, Bonet didn’t hold back when discussing the 80-year-old who has been accused of sexual misconduct by countless women. When asked if the Cosby allegations “tainted” her memories of The Cosby Show, she said, “No, it’s exactly as I remember it.” She also made it clear she was not aware of him being an alleged sexual predator, but she did sense a “sinister, shadow energy.”

“There was no knowledge on my part about his specific actions, but… There was just energy. And that type of sinister, shadow energy cannot be concealed.” You sensed a darkness? “Always. And if I had anything more to reveal then it would have happened a long time ago. That’s my nature. The truth will set you free.”

She also added, “I don’t need to say, ‘I told you so.’ I just leave all that to karma and justice and what will be.”

Well, damn. You can’t be any clearer than that. We will see if Cosby or anyone else from the sitcom responds. However, Bonet clearly has nothing to lose by saying exactly what is on her mind.

    Why should we be silent it is not golden when it holds mental pain and emotional suffering.For years men women and children have been victims of men who never acknowledged or processed through their own pain of abuse but began a cycle of abuse on others. Me Too.The cycle ends when we speak out loud and proud.

    I’m With Lisa, I’ve Always Felt That There Was Something About Bill That Seemed A Little Off. He Just Acted Like He Was Perfect.

    Bill was spot on and the only people that were butt hurt from what he said, were the guilty ones. Wasting money on shoes and weave versus a phonics book. Yeah, I’m looking at you Passing Through

  4. I believe Lisa 100%! There are people who carry this sinister trait and probably don’t even know it but other people can ‘actually feel’ as I can once you see them. Their either mean spirited or something. There is something about them that says this dude got some sit with them. And I stay away. Now there is a dude that comes on TV every day and I can see karma or the truth coming out soon. No its not Steve Harvey. But that mofo know he got some hidden sit with him. There are a number of our entertainers [I won’t mention] that have the same sinister ora about them.

    Lisa was aware of bill cheating but she was shocked at the amount of women which is not unreasonable if you think about it. Most black men want to cover over bill cheating and some black WOMEN. Bill created his problem let bill take care of his problem.

    I agree with passing through comments. Can you imagine if Cosby would have worked her pregnancy into the script as an unwed mother? During that time it would have been a powerful teachable moment. What a lost opportunity. Instead Cosby was sanctimonious. It’s not that his preaching was wrong, he wasn’t the right messenger- such a hypocrite. I also don’t see anything that contradicts what her daughter Zoe said about her being shocked by the allegations. She is reaffirming that by saying if she knew, she would have spilled. Lisa who is a free spirit is talking about the negative energy. She was too young to decipher, but it didn’t feel right. All she is saying is, I told you something wasn’t right. People probably thought she was being salty about losing her job, but she sensed his spirit wasn’t right. She just didn’t think it was what he is being accused of.

  7. Her words are in conflict with Zoe’s of past who stated her mother was “shocked” by the allegations against him. I suspect she knows and experienced more than she is saying. She is basically telling us “I told you so” without copping to it. Can’t have it both ways, Lisa.

    Yes Karma is a bytch. I remember when Bill went on tour dogging the black community, telling black people how they need to get their s**t together, meanwhile he was cheating on his wife and from what I heard f**king anything moving. He fired Lisa for nudity while he was doing much worse behind closed doors. Although, I believe the majority of the women who are accusing him are liars who let him smash for a come up, I still believe in some ways he is getting what he deserves for his hypocrisy & misleading the world that he was some clean cut all American dad. He criticized Red Fox and Richard Pryor for their vulgar stand up comedy and he was the biggest ho in Hollywood. Now every time I watch the Cosby show I know what a fake and a total fraud he was. It funny he perpetrated this lie his entire life and now at the end all of dirty deeds are being exposed.
