Gifford says that Cosby tried to kiss her when she toured with him in the 70’s, but still maintains her doubt of the sexual assault allegations against him.
I along with so many Americans and people around the world don’t want these (accusations) to be true. I will admit towards the end of the tour the last time I saw him he did try to kiss me. I said, ‘No,’ I said, ‘Bill, we’re friends.’ He said, ‘OK, good night,” and I said, ‘Good night.’ I went into my room and he went into his room. I’m not saying these women’s allegations are not true. From my own personal experiences, it didn’t happen.

Family Circle interviews Gifford about a family tradition she would like her kids to pass down to theirs.
We had a sunset alert at home where we stopped everything to watch it. After I’m gone, I hope my kids and their kids will keep watching the sun go down and think of me every time. I’m not a perfect mom, but my kids haven’t been arrested, in rehab or kicked out of school, so I must be doing something right.
