On Sunday night’s season premiere of Celebrity Apprentice, former Cosby kid, Keshia Knight Pulliam revealed that she hasn’t spoken with her former on-screen father in quite a while.
The discussion came up when Keshia failed her team, as project manager, and was unable to raise enough funds as part of the challenge. In the board room, it was quickly pointed out that she could have called a great resource, Bill Cosby.
Kenya Moore, one of Keshia’s teammates said, “If I was Rudy Huxtable and I was known for being America’s favorite daughter… I would’ve called my TV dad for a contribution.”
Keshia quickly responded, “I have not spoken to Bill Cosby on the phone in I don’t know how long. So for me to pick up the phone and 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.”
Trump didn’t seem to care how long it had been. “You have this tremendous guy, with this tremendous amount of money, and in one phone call, you could’ve won the whole task very easily.” He later continued, “You didn’t make one call that I really believe if you called that gentleman, he would’ve helped you, even if you hadn’t spoken to him in years… So I think it would’ve been a very good call to make for charity. But you have to take responsibility.” He then finished with, “Keshia, you’re fired.”
