LIFE AS A SCRUB

Being on The Cosby Show made me a household name. Wherever I went people would say, “Hey, there’s, uhm, what’s-his-name from the Huxtables.” So, perhaps not a household name, but a recognizable face and certainly a recognizable voice. “I...

TOWN HALL OR TOWN BRAWL

Has the Earth begun spinning in the opposite direction? It must, as I agree with something Senator Bernie Sanders (S-VT) said. “If you don’t have the guts to face your constituents, you shouldn’t be in the United States Congress.”...

TEMPESTT AND HER F-ING HORMONES!

The only cast member I had friction with was Tempestt Bledsoe, (Vanessa). The cast of the Cosby Show was a family knit as tightly as one of Cliff Huxtable’s famous sweaters. There was no way that I was just...

THE CAST AND MY SECRET CRUSH

I liked Lisa quite a bit. However, the cast member I liked the most was Malcolm Jamal-Warner, (Theo). Malcolm has an endearing quality about him. People want to be his friend. I was no different. He was always friendly and...

KISSING LISA BONET: THOSE LIPS!

In my career, I have been fortunate enough to kiss two of the most beautiful women in Hollywood–three if you count Troy Beyer. I kissed Halle Berry in the film Strictly Business and of course, while on the Cosby...

WELCOME TO THE HUXTABLES

True, I had some fun at Lisa’s expense. However, I also liked Lisa a great deal. She tended on the quiet side, but was sweet and I thought, very kind. She went out of her way to make me...

In the years since I first laid eyes on Lisa, there had been the film Angel Heart, a horror/thriller in which Lisa starred with Mickey Rourke and Robert De Niro. Lisa played a voodoo priestess, who dances around with her...

REVISITING CAMPUS BULLIES

When I was on the college speaking circuit, I never faced the kind of vitriol visited on Ben Shapiro, or Ann Coulter. Nor did I ever inspire the kind of hysteria the nation saw this past week at the...

FIRST AMENDMENT DENIED AT BERKELEY

“I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” – Evelyn Beatrice Hall (1868-1956) – not Voltaire, as is often incorrectly attributed   First Amendment Denied at...

TRAVEL BAN LEGAL AND NECESSARY

Lost in the shuffle of the over exaggerated, sack-cloth and ash, doom and gloom hysteria of the newly imposed travel ban by President Donald Trump is that it is perfectly legal and long overdue. The constitutional rights of not...

MEN BEHAVE LIKE COMPLETE IDIOTS

It is simply a fact of life that beautiful women make men behave like complete idiots. I know first hand. Along with the rest of America, The Cosby Show had become my favorite television program. Every Thursday evening, I was parked...
