According to NY Daily News, Gifford spoke on the morning show on Tuesday, explaining, “I will admit, towards the very last times I saw him, he did try to kiss me. I said, ‘Bill, no, we’re friends,’ and he said, ‘Okay, goodnight,’ and I said, ‘Goodnight.’ And I went to my room, and he went into his room. A lot of married men come on to single women… but once I said, ‘No, absolutely not,’ he respected it.”
Supermodel Beverly Johnson recently claimed Cosby drugged her in the mid-‘80s, and Kathie Lee commented this, saying, “I do know that I got a chill [reading Beverly Johnson's story], because every night when we’d come offstage and Bill would be going onstage, he would have made cappuccinos for all three of us. And I always thought it was such a kindness and it was so sweet, and now you see Beverly Johnson saying that he made her a cappuccino, and I just don’t want it to be true, but I’m not saying that the women are liars. I’m just saying I never personally saw it with my own two eyes.”
Cosby’s wife Camille recently released a statement coming to his defense against the sexual abuse allegations.
So far, more than 20 women have come forward accusing Cosby, 77, of sexual assault.
Cosby’s lawyer, Marty Singer, released a statement last month regarding the "alleged decades-old events" against his client, saying they are "unsubstantiated stories” and asking the media to stop the "vilification of Mr. Cosby."
Cosby settled a civil suit with an alleged victim in November 2006.
