Celebrity News: Phylicia Rashad Says She Was Misquoted During Cosby Defense

In her own words Phylicia Rashad is responding to critics who read the article by Showbiz 411.  According to, she replied: "That is not what I said. What I said is, 'This is not about the women. This is about something else. This is about the obliteration of a legacy,'" she said. "I am a woman. I am a woman. I would never say such a thing." 

According to, late Wednesday night, Showbiz 411 editor Roger Friedman, who published the first interview with Rashad, wrote a post clarifying what was said in the exchange.
Let me clear something. I did not misquote Phylicia Rashad. But she didn’t mean for it to be taken the way it was, and I should have punctuated. There was NEVER the meaning in ‘Forget those women’ that she was saying to actually forget or dismiss then. She meant, 'those women aside' -– as in, she’s not talking about that, she’s talking about Cosby’s legacy being destroyed. It was conversational. Somehow this got twisted. I am really sorry if the way I presented it made it seem like either one of us was forgetting anyone.
Friedman said he was editing the original post to remove Rashad's comment, "because it was misunderstood, and not for any other reason."For Rashad's full interview, head over to ABC News. 

Our response, we still believe this could be a conspiracy against Mr. Bill Cosby, because he is a successful black man in an era when quite a few black men are getting killed by some cops in America.
