Bill Cosby at least have one person on his side.
Celebrity Apprientice debut last night and Donald Trump wasted no time in causing controversy. During the show, Trump calls Bill Cosby a tremendous man after “firing” his TV daughter Keshia Knight Pulliam. She is best known, best known for playing the comedian’s daughter Rudy on The Cosby Show, was fired by Donald Trump for not hitting her TV dad up for a bake sale donation.
‘I did not. I have not talked to Bill Cosby on the phone in I don’t know how long,’ Pulliam explained. ‘So for me to pick up the phone, having not talked to you for five years, except for when we run into each other for a Cosby event – I feel that’s not my place to do.’
Trump disagrees, saying a big donation to the sale would have been nothing for a ‘tremendous guy’ like Cosby with a ‘tremendous amount of money’ enough to win the task with one phone call.
He told Keshia: ‘You are an amazing person, but you were the project manager. You didn’t make one call that I really believe that if you’d called that gentleman he would have helped you, even if you hadn’t spoken to him in years.
‘You were an amazing team with one of the most successful shows ever, so I think it would have been a good call to make for charity. You have to take responsibility.’
Talk about awkward!
