Bill Cosby calls prison an ‘amazing experience’ in a revealing new interview with his spokesman
The widely famous actor, Bill Cosby, is currently serving a sentence of at least 3 years, and he seems to have enjoyed the experience so far.
The first words from the 81-year-old American actor and comedian, Bill Cosby, has reached the media, and they are a little surprising.
In an interview with NBC10, Andrew Wyatt, Cosby’s long term right-hand man gave some insights into the feelings of his principal, saying Cosby feels his prison experience has been an astounding one thus far.
Wyatt confirmed when pressed for the words Cosby actually said.
“Yeah, he used the term 'amazing experience’.”
Wyatt also revealed that Cosby has been exercising, saying he is down to 195 pounds, has stopped eating bread and coffee, and also refuses desserts.
“The funny part is that Mrs. Cosby has been trying to stop him from drinking coffee for 55 years, and she said it took this to stop him from drinking coffee,”
Cosby also cuts down on his sodium intake by rinsing his food first with water.
A typical day in prison for the TV man starts at 3:30 am when he is woken up by the guards in his single cell at the newly built State Correctional Institution (SCI) – Phoenix, outside of Philadelphia.
He then does leg lifts in his cell, pushing up against the bed, and pushups to stay in shape. He takes a shower and then waits for breakfast.
Wyatt also revealed that Cosby’s wife, Camille, as well as his daughters, have not visited him, stating that he would prefer not to have them ‘in that environment’ as it could turn into a circus.
This means that only Wyatt and Cosby’s attorneys have set eyes on him since he was incarcerated. Cosby, however, talks to his wife over the phone three times a day for 3 minutes each time, the maximum he’s allowed.
The whole issue began when a Ms. Andrea Constand, a Temple University women’s basketball admin, accused the comedian of assaulting her in 2005, claiming he gave her wine and pills that left her "frozen."
Cosby, at the time, stated that the sex was consensual. The Montgomery County district attorney refused to prosecute him in 2005 on the grounds of insufficient credible and admissible evidence.
Constand eventually went on to sue him, but the suit was settled, and both parties signed a non-disclosure agreement.
When in a comedy session in 2014 Cosby was called out as a rapist, many women came out to accuse him of indecent assault.
Months later, details of Constand’s lawsuit of 2005, particularly Cosby’s deposition, became public, leading to a renewed investigation into the matter.
Not long after, Cosby was arrested on charges of aggravated indecent assault. The trial ended in a mistrial in 2017 because of a hung jury.
The retrial began on April 5, 2018, and Cosby was found guilty. He was then sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison. Throughout the whole saga, over 50 women came forward to accuse Cosby of assault.
