Explosive Video: Bill Cosby Pressures AP Reporter to 'Scuttle' Interview

Embattled Bill Cosby asked a reporter never to broadcast a video which shows him refusing to answer questions about the shocking rape allegations.

"Can I get something from you? That none of this will be shown?" asked Cosby.

"I can't promise that myself, but you didn't say anything," answered the reporter.

"I know I didn't say anything," replied Cosby.

Cosby refused to discuss the firestorm.

Cosby said, "No. No. We don't answer that."

But just-released outtakes show he was clearly rattled by the questions and demanded that the exchange never see the light of day.

"I would appreciate it if it was scuttled," he said.

Body language expert Dr. Lillian Glass analyzed the video for INSIDE EDITION.

Dr. Glass said, "This shows a man who is used to having a lot of power, and who is used to using his power to get whatever he wants. You see him very protective in a V position over his private parts, and this is what is being discussed in essence, his cheating behavior, or the allegations. So, when you look at what's going on with their hands you can tell a great deal about his vulnerability."
Camille Cosby, his wife of of fifty years, was at his side during the Associated Press interview.

"Here's a woman who is standing by her man, but deep, deep down she knows what must have been going on because you don't see a genuine smile. You see a very tight smile. You see her cheeks are not raised in a genuine smiling behavior," said Dr. Glass.

Cosby said, "We thought, by the way, since it was AP, that it wouldn't be necessary to go over that question with you."

The tense exchange ended with a terse order from Cosby to someone off camera.

"I think you need to get on the phone with his person immediately," he said.

Meanwhile, talk show host Wendy Williams says that Cosby tried to get her fired over a gossipy segment she did on her radio show in 1990 about his alleged womanizing.
Williams said, "Next thing you know Cosby rings up the general manager, demands for me to be fired, talked to the general manager in such a way that the general manager, my own boss, turned on me like a wild pit bull. He called me into his office in the middle of the morning broadcast, Cosby is on speaker-phone, Cosby dressed me down and called me everything but a daughter of God. That's my own personal account."
