Wendy Williams Gets Uncomfortable When Talking About Bill Cosby Trying to Get Her Fired

The talk show host was a bit hesitant, at first.

Published July 27, 2017

Wendy Williams is now speaking out against Bill Cosby, claiming the fallen comedian tried to get her fired during her days as a radio personality in the early 1990s.

According to Radar Online, during an interview on The Stern Show on Wednesday, the show's host, Howard Stern, brought up Cosby's recent sexual assault charges, and asked the current talk show host a pretty direct and personal question, in the process.

"Didn't Bill Cosby attempt to get you fired from your job?" he asked.

Williams, who seemed to express a bit of discomfort, told Stern, "I'm not talking," before going on to speak vaguely about the past situation.

"No it just... it is what it is," she said. "It's really uncomfortable. If people did not understand what I was saying back in 1992 and 1993 and now all of a sudden they're coming late to the party. I'm exhausted, I'm moving on."

When pressed to expound a bit more on what happened, exactly, she went into a bit more detail.

"I'm a young girl, I'm in my 20s. It's like 1992 or '91," she said. "I'm on the air in the morning doing my gossip report. The GM is in his office — this is like seven o'clock in the morning. Cosby is on the phone talking to the GM. The GM is definitely agreeing with Cosby and figuring out what do we do with me."

Though she said it seemed as they were plotting to get rid of her, she ultimately got to keep her job because, at the end of the day, she was good at it.

When asked for her opinion on Cosby's sexual assault charges, however, she responded with one word: "Guilty."
