Speaks out Cosby rape allegations

Makes Statement0 Comments

Host O’Donnell speaks out regarding Cosby’s rape allegations:

There are lots of allegations starting in 1969. There are many, many, many, and it’s very hard, I think, for any of us to discuss Cosby in this context. Because he is the beloved father image, the benevolent father that we as a society hold in some way. Even for, you know, anyone who has been the victim of sexual abuse to believe that somebody that you love or know could do that is a very difficult thing.

Williams guest stars on the view and talks about raising a teenage son, her success and new book.

What I discovered this weekend is that my son doesn’t like me anymore. You know how it is, I know what it is. I don’t have my period. I’ve discovered this a while ago but the ball just got smacked home this weekend. He’s all into his father, you know how 13 year olds are, I was the same way when I was thirteen but it is breaking my heart. He says things to me like ‘Why are you so pissed? but he’ll say why are you so pissed? Like I’m pissed all the time, like I’m the one with the problem. He’s the one who’s thirteen and I get it and I know that this phase only last for four years or something like that, but it is breaking my heart.
