But with that point, Cosby was more of an icon.  His impact as an artist and philanthropist was much bigger. So way more to lose from an image perspective.

OJ was a titan in his own right, 1975-1995.

Well, almost three years later, OJ is out on parole and Bill may be headed for jail for the rest of his life.

Given the amount of footage available from his case, would make a better documentary than a movie.

Check out this excerpt from an article I found in cyberspace featuring Lisa Bonet as the subject on the cover story of The Porter:

March 2018



Like a lot of self-described misfits, she found an escape in acting.

At 16, she became Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show, and then its spin-off show, A Different World, at the time two of the most popular shows in the world.

Have the revelations about Bill Cosby’s alleged sexual misconduct tainted her memory of those years?

She looks evenly at me. “No, it’s exactly as I remember it,” she says.

But did you have a sense that anything was happening?

“There was no knowledge on my part about his specific actions, but… There was just energy. And that type of sinister, shadow energy cannot be concealed.”

You sensed a darkness? “Always. And if I had anything more to reveal then it would have happened a long time ago.

That’s my nature. The truth will set you free.”

At the time, Bonet was branded a rebel who tested the patience of the most popular sitcom dad in the country.

She showed up late on set and posed topless in Interview magazine, contrary to his wishes.

Cosby famously opposed her role in Angel Heart, in which she performed a nude sex scene with Mickey Rourke. “I don’t need to say, ‘I told you so’,” she says about Cosby’s current situation. “I just leave all that to karma and justice and what will be.”

It was around this time that she fell for Lenny Kravitz, and their marriage was like a firework, bright and intense, but ultimately short-lived.

What did you expect, I tell her, you married a rock star! She smiles. “He wasn’t when I met him.”

They were almost too perfectly matched – both half-Jewish and half-black; both dreadlocked and gorgeous; talented and young.

Lenny was 23 and Lisa just 20.

Just over a year after they met, Lenny got a record deal, and Bonet co-wrote some of the songs on his first album.

When she became pregnant with Zoë, she says, “people were falling off roofs trying to get pictures.”

The divorce, just six years in, was crushing. But with Zoë to think about, there was no room for recriminations.

Bonet went through what she calls “a very accelerated time, spiritually and intellectually.”

In other words, she grew up really fast.

Determined not to burden their daughter with her baggage – “I didn’t want to pass on those heirlooms, and this fresh wound of a divorce” – Bonet reconciled with Kravitz and focused on her daughter.

“I think there are probably times when these thresholds can either sink you,” she says, “or you can see who you are and rise and dust yourself off.
