Bill Cosby Resigns From The Board of Trustees At Temple University

Published

Amid the wave of sexual assault allegations, Bill Cosby has decided to step down from his position as a board of trustees member at his beloved alma mater, Temple University.

“I have always been proud of my association with Temple University. I have always wanted to do what would be in the best interests of the university and its students. As a result, I have tendered my resignation from the Temple University Board of Trustees,” the 77-year-old comedian said in a statement released on Monday.

So far, twenty women have accused Cosby of rape and sexual assault, the first of them being Andrea Constand who was the director of operations for Temple’s women basketball team. In 2004, Constant sued Cosby for allegedly drugging and assaulting her but the case was settled in 2006.

Cosby attended Temple in the 1960s and has done a great deal for the university over the years. In 1982, he became a trustee and while other universities including Berklee College of Music in Boston, High Point University in North Carolina, Freed-Hardeman University in Tennessee, and University of Massachusetts Amherst have cut ties with him already, Temple had not made any moves until Monday when it issued the following statement,  “The Board of Trustees accepts Dr. Cosby’s resignation from the board and thanks him for his service to the university.”

Though he is stepping back from his role at Temple, he has not admitted to any of the allegations. His lawyer recently issued a statement calling the claims “ridiculous” and “completely illogical.”

Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy

Published

Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.

If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage.  So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.

Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.

“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”

“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”

To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.

“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”

So do you agree Heavenly? Let us know in the comments below.
