According to a report from BET.com, Bill Cosby has a new way of coping with his reality in prison. Sources who spoke with Radar Online revealed that Bill, who formerly portrayed Dr. Cliff Huxtable, is now re-enacting that very same character in an attempt to console other inmates.
The insider who spoke with the outlet explained, “he believes he learned a lot about how to cure people and speak to patients” as a consequence of playing Dr. Huxtable all of those years ago on The Cosby Show – the series that brought him massive fame and fortune.
The insider claims Cosby has been telling people around the prison that the medical professionals at the SCI Phoenix state prison are merely “unintelligent” and “overeducated children” wielding clipboards. Bill has reportedly been spending at least one hour a day speaking with healthy inmates regarding meditation and other new-age practices.
Bill has been accepting appointments from people in an attempt to help figure out their problems, from common colds to issues with being overweight. If Bill thinks they’re beyond a cure, he sends them to the infirmary.
In addition to acting like Dr. Huxtable, Bill reportedly is also dressing like him as well. Allegedly, he has worn a “bed sheet like an apron” in an attempt to help himself get into character from the show in which he portrayed Huxtable all those years ago.
Bill Cosby is currently in prison for three to ten years as a consequence of drugging and raping Andrea Constand 15 years ago in 2004. As it was reported previously, it was quite a challenge to convict Cosby for his many crimes, considering the vast majority of them were far past the statute of limitations.
Bill was accused of rape, assault, harassment, and drugging by nearly one hundred women over his 50-year career. Unfortunately, to this day, people think he was innocent and is merely in prison due to his skin color, rather than for his crimes.
Some critics have gone so far as to compare Bill to Harvey Weinstein despite their crimes being fundamentally different. Harvey allegedly traded sex for movie roles, whereas Bill drugged and raped women while they were unconscious. Either way, it seems like Bill has adjusted to prison nicely; one wonders if Harvey will do the same.
