In an article for the “Hollywood Reporter” Steve Harvey says he will continue to support his close friend Bill Cosby.
“I haven’t talked to him in a few months, but when I’m your friend, I’m your friend,” Harvey said. “And Bill Cosby helped my sons at Morehouse [College], and he taught me how to do this business. He didn’t even know me and he taught me how to do this business.”
Harvey added, “When I heard all the trouble he was in, I called and asked him how he was doing. You know what he says to me? ‘Hey man, I appreciate you calling, but just stay away from me right now. You don’t need none of this on you. You’re doing good. Whatever happens to me, happens to me, but don’t you get none of this on you.’ That’s an amazing thing for a guy to say.”
“There was The Cosby Show, but the problem there was that they could never find another Bill, a guy that was that likable on TV,” he said. “Now they’re knocking statues down, peeling names off of walls. They’re doing everything but giving money back. They’re not giving no money back.”
That’s what real friends do, stick with you when you going through a tough time.
