Internet gossip is ablaze regarding the arrest of Bill Cosby this week. Cosby was charged with aggravated indecent assault in Philadelphia from a 2004 incident. He was arraigned and released on a $1 million bail and left the city for Los Angeles on a private jet. There is now a new focus on Camille Cosby and her whereabouts during some of the alleged assaults. News outlet Daily Mail online is reporting that Camille Cosby is refusing to testify under oath about her husband’s extramarital indiscretions. Her reaction is in response to seven of Cosby’s accusers to depose her for pending civil litigation in Massachusetts.
In a legal response Camille Cosby objected to the questions that would make her testify about intimate conversations with her husband. The questions also asked about her presence during the alleged assaults and whether or not she procured drugs used on the alleged victims, a charge she has vehemently denied. In regards to her husband’s affairs Mrs. Cosby felt the question was irrelevant and also the law protects her from discussing intimate conversations with her husband. However according to one alleged victim, Carla Ferrigno, wife of “The Incredible Hulk” star Lou Ferrigno, Mrs. Cosby was present in the home when Bill Cosby attacked.
Carla Ferrigno was 18 and worked as a Playboy Bunny when she met the Cosbys with a male friend on a dinner date. Later in the evening the couples went back to the Cosby home and both Camille Cosby and her male companion left the room without warning. Soon afterwards she claimed that Bill Cosby grabbed her and forcibly kissed her when they were alone. Ferrigno claims she ran away from Cosby and never talked to anyone about the incident. She believes that she was brought to the Cosby home for another purpose other than a friendly game of pool.
For now Camille Cosby is requesting that the judge not order her to sit for a deposition citing the burden on her and her right to privacy. The judge in the Massachusetts case has not yet made a decision.
