At least one of Bill Cosby's former cast members on The Cosby Show has come to the defense of the 77-year-old comedian in light of allegations that he sexually assaulted women during the height of his stardom.

Stephen Colbert has been tapped to host the Kennedy Center Honors on Dec. 7.

“He is best in class and will no doubt undue any solemnity that might otherwise attend the occasion,” said Honors co-producer George Stevens Jr.

Stevens and his fellow producer Michael Stevens reportedly made the casting decision without input from CBS, where Colbert will take over from David Letterman as host of “The Late Show” some time next year. CBS will air the 37th annual KenCen Honors as a special on Dec. 30.

Janice Dickinson Accuses Bill Cosby of Sexual Assault

19 November 2014 7:03 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Janice Dickinson claimed in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight that she was sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby back in 1982. Janice said the incident happened in Lake Tahoe after she was invited there by Bill to discuss a potential appearance on The Cosby Show. According to Janice, he offered her a glass of red wine and a pill, which she had asked for because she was experiencing menstrual cramps. She continued, "The next morning I woke up and I wasn't wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man. Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me. And I remember a lot of pain. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs. »

Netflix has decided to postpone its Bill Cosby special as the embattled comedian faces multiple accusations of rape, the latest from former supermodel and TV host Janice Dickinson.

“At this time we are postponing the launch of the new stand up comedy special ‘Bill Cosby 77,’” a Netflix spokesman said on Tuesday.

Bill Cosby: NBC Under Pressure as Another Woman Accuses Comedian of Rape

17 November 2014 1:12 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC is under mounting pressure to act in regards to the sitcom it is developing with Bill Cosby amid allegations of rape leveled at the comedian by multiple women.

NBC would not comment on the status of the untitled project, but few believe that it has a chance of moving forward in light of new statements by two women who claim they were sexually assaulted by Cosby decades ago. Cosby’s lawyer has denied the claim, calling them “discredited allegations.”

With that denial and no legal charges pending against Cosby, the situation presents a judgment-call dilemma for NBC. The comedian has long been associated with the network, and was a cornerstone of its success in the 1980s with his domestic comedy “The Cosby Show.”

But given the disturbing nature of the allegations, it’s nearly impossible to imagine the network producing and marketing a show featuring the 77-year-old comedian’s trademark avuncular humor. »

New Bill Cosby Rape Accuser Goes Public

16 November 2014 6:18 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bill Cosby has been at the center of an escalating sexual assault controversy for the past few weeks, and on Sunday, another woman came forward with details of an alleged sexual assault at the hands of the actor.

Publicist Joan Tarshis penned an essay on Hollywood Elsewhere on Sunday, saying she was raped twice by Cosby when she was 19 years old and working with him in the fall of 1969.

Tarshis said she had flown to New York and met Cosby through mutual friends, who invited Tarshis to lunch with Cosby on the Universal lot. She wrote that Cosby invited her back a few times and was always generous with drinks — though never drank himself.

Tarshis goes on to detail her first alleged rape from Cosby, after he had asked her to stay one day after shooting and work on material in his bungalow.

Bill Cosby’s Lawyer Makes a Statement About Sexual Assault Allegations

16 November 2014 1:07 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Bill Cosby's lawyer, John P. Schmitt, issued a statement today about Cosby's sexual assault allegations.

On the actor and comedian's website, Schmitt writes:

Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr. Cosby have resurfaced. The fact they are being repeated does not make them true. Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment. He would like to thank all his fans for the outpouring of support and assure them that, at age 77, he is doing his best work. There will be no further statement from Mr. Cosby or any of his representatives.

News: Bill Cosby Alleged Rape Victim Speaks Out

The statement comes after Barbra Bowman alleged that she was sexually assaulted by Cosby, and in a recent Washington Post piece, she questions why she wasn't believed. She claims she was drugged and raped by him upon meeting him at the age of 17 in 1985.

Kristin Chenoweth Says Kim Kardashian's Naked Butt Photo Ruined Her Day—Watch the Hilarious Clip

Kim Kardashian's memorable butt may have shocked fans when it surfaced online. But for Kristin Chenoweth, the revealing photo featured in Paper magazine almost reminded the singer of her own upcoming album cover. Ummm, oops! While visiting the Late Show With David Letterman Friday night, Chenoweth showed off her new album titled Coming Home. Unfortunately, the photo partly showing the Glee star's butt (clothed, of course) doesn't exactly pack the same punch as Kardashian's cover. "Damnit, if Kim Kardashian didn't ruin my day today," she joked as David Letterman held her album out Nov. 17. "It's not fair!" "There's dumb and dumber," she added »

Bill Cosby Cancels David Letterman Appearance Amid Rape Allegations

15 November 2014 11:08 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bill Cosby has canceled an appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” scheduled for Wednesday as mainstream media outlets heighten the scrutiny of longstanding allegations of sexual assault leveled against the comedian.

A rep for Cosby did not respond to a request for comment. CBS would not comment on the change in “Late Show’s” Wednesday guest lineup.

Cosby’s retreat from the national TV spotlight comes after an Arizona woman, Barbara Bowman, revived allegations that he drugged and raped her in the mid-1980s when she was an aspiring actress who met him in New York City. Cosby and his reps in the past have strongly denied the allegations from Bowman and other women.

On Thursday, the Washington Post published a lengthy column by Bowman that recounted multiple incidents of sexual assault and her struggle to have her claim believed. At the time of the incidents, Cosby was »
