Camille Cosby laughed off rumors that she is planning to divorce her husband, Bill Cosby.

Rumors swirled after Camille Cosby was spotted without her wedding ring as she left a luxury townhouse where she has been living with Bill since his release from a Philadelphia prison on June 30.

Cosby's publicist shot down rumors that the 77-year-old homemaker was divorcing her husband of nearly 60 years.

"It's hilarious because Mr. & Mrs. Cosby have been happily married for 57 years and counting," Andrew Wyatt told Radar Online.

"They have not worn wedding rings in almost 30 years," Wyatt said, before adding that "vultures" are praying for the Cosbys' downfall.

"These are the same 'media insurrectionist,' who are angry that this intelligent, strong, and vibrant Black woman stood by her husband, as well as vehemently proclaimed Mr. Cosby's innocence," Wyatt said.

Bill, 84, was released from prison on a technicality after he appealed his three to ten year prison sentence on sexual assault charges.

Luenell threw shots at fellow comedian Bill Cosby who is planning a comeback standup comedy tour.

Bill Cosby, 83, was released from a Philadelphia prison on June 30 after he served three years of a three to ten year sentence on sex assault charges.

TMZ bumped into Luenell at L.A.'s LAX Airport, and she was adamant that Cosby should enjoy his newfound freedom at home. She said the alternative is taking the O.J. Simpson route -- and ending up back in prison.

Simpson, 74, was hit with armed robbery a decade after he was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife and her friend. Simpson served 9 years in prison for the robbery conviction.

Luenell says Cosby should learn from Simpson, and "go somewhere and sit down." She seemed to suggest Cosby will find himself back behind bars if he insists on touring -- since female groupies hang out backstage.

It's obvious that Cosby -- who is legally blind -- can't resist beautiful ladies.

Luenell, 62, also said Cosby is sure to be confronted by loud protesters wherever he goes.

At least one comedy club has banned Cosby from performing in his venue. The owner of NYC's famed Comedy Cellar says Cosby is not welcome there, according to TMZ.

Bill Cosby's former friends, Rev. Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Andrew Young and others, took his money then abandoned him when he reached out to them for support.

Cosby, 83, was released from prison on Wednesday, June 30, after serving two years of a three-to-10-year prison sentence on sexual assault charges.

Andrew Wyatt. Cosby's personal spokesman, shared the details in an exclusive interview with Shelley Wynter that aired on WSB Radio's "Word On the Street" on Tuesday, July 13.

Wyatt said Cosby and his wife Camille gave Jesse Jackson $1 million when he ran for president of the United States in 1984.

Wyatt said the Cosbys paid all of Jackson's bills, paid off his home in Chicago (that he still lives in), purchased another home for him and Mrs. Jackson in Washington, D.C. (that they still own), loaned Jackson his private jet, and other perks.

Yet, when Cosby turned to Jackson for help during his time of need, Jackson turned his back on him.

Cosby was also generous to Ambassador Andrew Young when the Atlanta politician ran for Congress as a Democrat in 1970.

And Cosby gave $50,000 to the family of Tawana Brawley when Rev. Al Sharpton called Cosby for help.

Wyatt said when Cosby reached out to Sharpton during his trial, Sharpton told him he would call him right back and then never called.

Phylicia Rashad is fighting to keep her position as dean at Howard University. Rashad, 73, was heavily criticized after she showed support for her TV husband, Bill Cosby, in an exuberant tweet.

Cosby, 83, was released from prison last week after serving three years of a 3- to 10-year sentence for alleged sexual assault.

Rashad, who starred with the comedian on the TV sitcom "The Cosby Show", tweeted:

"FINALLY!!!! A terrible wrong is being righted- a miscarriage of justice is corrected!"

After facing furious public backlash, Rashad deleted her tweet and backtracked, saying "I fully support survivors of sexual assault".

Liberal officials at woke Howard University pressured Rashad to apologize again after students called for her termination.

Rashad hastily released a lengthy statement, saying her "remarks were in no way directed toward survivors of sexual assault."

Rashad received overwhelming support from her celebrity friends, including singer Stephanie Mills who urged Howard U. to "give back the millions" Cosby donated to the school.

The 64-year-old "Home" singer took to Instagram and wrote:

"I love you @phyliciarashad [heart emojis]. If it's true that Howard University wants to terminate her Position because they feel her comments about Mr. Cosby were insensitive, then they should give back the millions of dollars that he donated to the university."

Mills referred to the millions Cosby donated to Howard in return for an honorary college degree in 1989.

Cosby also donated millions to the all-women Spelman college in Atlanta, Ga.

The former Broadway star is best known for her hit singles "I Have Learned to Respect the Power of Love", "I Feel Good All Over", "(You're Puttin') A Rush on Me" and "Something in the Way (You Make Me Feel)".

She won a Grammy Award for "Never Knew Love Like This Before" (watch her sing live below).

"I don't have a dog in the fight at all when it comes to Mr. Cosby," Jaleel told "Daily Blast Live" co-hosts Jeff Schroeder, Al Jackson and Sam Schacher.

The "Family Matters" star says he doesn't condone the actions that led Bill Cosby to prison, but he does acknowledge the impact Cosby made on his career when he was young.

"I will say that when I was young, he was a mentor to me, and he had a very big impact on my representation at a particular point in my life. So, it's tough for people like myself, like Raven-Symoné, or the children who grew up on that show ['The Cosby Show'] who are now full grown adults, Keshia [Knight Pulliam], Malcolm [Malcolm-Jamal Warner], and even myself who, our childhoods were affected by this man."

"Cancel culture says 'you will not talk about him, you will not address him, you will not even discuss the impact that he had on you,'" said Jaleel, pictured with his 12-year-old daughter, Samaya White.

"That's not fair to us at all. That's not fair to the legacies that we have. I always just like to put it in a proper context, when I talk about Mr. Cosby, I am not condoning his actions at all, but there are other stories to be told about how Mr. Cosby affected a lot of people's lives."

Debbie Allen spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the roadblock to bringing back A Different World.

The 71-year-old actress, dancer and choreographer said Bill Cosby's attachment to the original sitcom series is the roadblock that prevents a reboot from happening any time soon.

"We've been wanting to do it forever. Honestly, it's strapped behind the whole situation with Mr. [Bill] Cosby — which is unfortunate," she said. "But the show was his idea. There's a studio and network situation where they can't allow any money to go into his company. I said, 'Can't we contribute it to schools or something?' But you can't take somebody's name off of a show. A Different World needs to have a second life, and we know how to do it. I was so close to doing it with Issa Rae."

She continued: "We were going to do it again, yeah. Then the question was posed, 'Will he take his name off of it?' And that's not going to happen. It's sad because we need it right now."

Cosby, 83, is currently serving 3–10 years in state prison in Pennsylvania on aggravated sex assault charges.

Bill Cosby's wife Camille is looking forward to her husband coming home while getting a chance to appeal his sexual assault conviction.

The disgraced comedian was sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison in 2018 after he was found guilty of drugging and raping Temple University staff member Andrea Constand in 2004.

The star has repeatedly tried and failed to have the conviction overturned, arguing he did not receive a fair trial.

On Tuesday, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court agreed to review two aspects of the case against Cosby.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court will also examine whether a prosecutor told Cosby he will not face criminal charges in Constand's case after she accepted a financial settlement from the actor.

Camille is feeling optimistic that he will be released home while his case is under appeal.

She told ABC News Prime: "There are possibilities now. Finally, there is a court ... that has said, 'Wait a minute. There are some problems here. They can be considered for appeal.'"

She added: "I am very, very pleased... but now I'm looking at something that is possible. Possible for vindication. That is the goal."

The 82-year-old comedian has been incarcerated for almost two years, but producer Camille said she has not visited her husband in prison.

"I do not want to see my husband in that kind of environment, and he doesn't want me to see him in that kind of environment either."

Camille insisted she and her husband communicate every day by phone.

Cosby's representative revealed the actor was "extremely thankful" to the court judges for granting him an opportunity to fight the case, reported Variety magazine.

"As we have all stated, the false conviction of Bill Cosby is so much bigger than him - it's about the destruction of ALL Black people and people of color in America," the spokesperson added.
