Donald Trump Bill Cosby comment Keshia Knight Pulliam The Celebrity Apprentice
Keshia Knight Pulliam, best known for playing Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show, was fired from Celebrity Apprentice this evening after being admonished for not requesting Bill Cosby‘s help in donating money for the episode’s challenge.
The challenge required that the celeb contestants contact their rich friends to raise money for a bake sale. Keshia was her team’s project manager, and despite her team asking her to contact Bill, she refused. Bill wasn’t mentioned much after that.
Then, when it was time for the Boardroom, Donald and Ivanka Trump and Piers Morgan questioned her. “Did you call Bill?” Donald asked her, to which she responded that she had not.
“I have not talked to Bill Cosby on the phone in I don’t know how long. So for me to pick up the phone, having not talked to you for five years, except for when we run into each other for a Cosby event– I feel that’s not my place to do,” she said.
“I really believe, if you’d called that gentleman, he would’ve helped you, even if you hadn’t spoken to him in years because you were an amazing team with one of the most successful shows ever. So I think it would’ve been a very good call to make for charity. But you have to take responsibility. I think you agree with that,” Donald responded.
