Lisa Bonet, who formerly worked with Bill Cosby, for the most part, has stayed relatively silent when it comes to Bill Cosby and the riotous allegations against him. As all know by now, Cosby was embroiled in a sexual misconduct scandal perhaps more egregious than that of the former producer, Harvey Weinstein.
Upon the widespread circulation of the skit from comedian, Hannibal Burress, where he joked about the alleged rape of Cosby, a cascade of allegations came forward, and since then, Bill has stayed out of the public’s eye except for a surprise performance in Philadelphia.
However, Lisa isn’t willing to stay quiet about her old boss anymore, as, during a recent interview, she opened up about the energy carried by Cosby.
When speaking with reporters from Porter Edit, Bonet revealed she had no idea of the extent of his nefarious behavior; however, the actress stated he had a “type of sinister, shadow energy” which could not be concealed.
Bonet, who co-starred alongside Cosby as Denise in The Cosby Show, said she always sensed he had a “darkness” about him. With that said, still, she didn’t realize he was a perpetrator.
As soon as the four zeros went up – my memory went to a black and white photo of Steve Van Buren running with the football in the snow.

Bonet claimed had she known; the truth would’ve come out a long time ago. She stated, “that’s my nature. The truth will set you free.”
Despite the fact the alleged transgressions of Cosby have permanently thwarted the legacy of the show, Bonet states she still has a lot of positive memories attached to it.
Afterall, it did kickstart her career. She said, “It’s exactly as I remember it.” Celebrity Insider reported previously that Bill Cosby would be heading back to court this year following his grid-locked trial that ended with jurors not reaching a unanimous decision.
