Keshia Knight Pulliam made headlines last week after appearing alongside Bill Cosby on day one of his sexual assault trial. But could she have an ulterior motive?
At the time, Pulliam revealed to reporters that she was there to support her former television father because “ultimately, it’s easy to support someone and to be in their corner when things are great, when things are good. But … true family, friendship, integrity is how people show up and support when things aren’t looking so great, when they aren’t shining.”
On Monday morning, just days after attending Cosby’s hearing, the mother of one shared a series of snapshots with Bill while behind the scenes of the courtroom.
Clad in a bright pink blazer, Keshia can be seen happily hugging the neck the comedian and, at one point, appears to be giving him a nice little massage. Considering the nature of the case, is it appropriate for her to be flaunting photos of this nature? Happy and sappy?
Which brings us to our next point … Keshia’s caption read: “Download the NEW Kandidly Keshia & listen in as I share my experience attending court last week with Mr. Cosby. ***Link in bio play.it/Keshia.”
While we understand the desire to defend her dear friend, Keshia’s Instagram post appears to be more of a ploy to get numbers for her podcast.
So we ask this question: Is she here for Cosby or the cameras? Is Pulliam using the 72-year-old’s case as a launching pad to boost her career?
Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice
Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.
On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.
It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.
So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.
“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”
Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”
And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.
For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”
Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
