Just because 2015 came to an end does not mean its scandals are over!
It’s may be a new year, but the Bill Cosby controversy is as heated as ever now that he’s been arrested for a sexual assault that took place 11.5 years ago — narrowly fitting into Pennsylvania’s 12 year statute of limitation.
And with the case getting even more attention due to as many as 50 women wanting to testify against him, things started to get a bit confusing when the women of The View started addressing Bill’s arraignment and Camille Cosby’s deposition.
Luckily, CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin was part of the panel on Monday and was able to explain the upcoming trial more clearly to her cohosts… and she actually made the whole thing much more understandable.
In addition to Sunny’s legal take on the arrest, Whoopi Goldberg was the most vocal about the fate of Bill Cosby.
The comedian — who infamously came under fire for defending Cosby when his accusers first started coming forward — would only go so far as neutral, saying:
“Look, I’m glad it’s happening. I sorta feel like, whenever you have people saying, ‘This is what happened, this is what happened, this is what happened,’ I want the court. I want to hear it. I want everybody to be able to ask the questions. We’ve heard a lot, but we have not heard anything from his side.”
How many more women have to come forward to convince you, Whoopi?
Interestingly enough, Raven-Symon├â┬⌐ kept unusually quiet during the conversation, only trying to talk a single time — but this is much more personal for the former Disney star since she was on the Cosby Show when she was a kid, so we understand.
