Lisa Bonet Sensed ‘Sinister Energy’ From Bill Cosby [Net-a-Porter]
Actress Lisa Bonet has broken her silence about her former TV dad Bill Cosby who she starred with on The Cosby Show and spin-off A Different World. In an interview with Net-a-Porter’s Porter magazine, Bonet says that she wasn’t aware of any inappropriate behavior by Cosby but that she sensed a bad vibe that she describes as “sinister shadow energy.” She says: “I don’t need to say ‘I told you so.’ I just leave all that to karma and justice and what will be.” The 50-year-old also discusses her relationship with Lenny Kravtiz and her husband Jason Momoa, the difficulties of growing up as a mixed-race kid, and the fact that there “aren’t endless opportunities for women of color” in Hollywood. Cosby, meanwhile, is facing an April 2 retrial on sexual assault charges in a Pennsylvania court. More than 50 women have accused him of rape, sexual assault, battery and misconduct dating from 1965 onward.

We need food for survival, we also need privacy to deal with our bodies as we see fit."
