First 'Cosby Show' Star Breaks Silence On Bill Cosby Scandal

Keshia Knight-Pulliam is the first "Cosby Kid" to speak out about those sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby.

INSIDE EDITION's Megan Alexander asked her, "What do you make of all the allegations?"

She replied, "You know, it is very unfortunate, but that it's not the man I know. That is not what I experienced."

Keshia Knight-Pulliam played little Rudy Huxtable, the youngest child on The Cosby Show. 

Alexander asked, "Do you keep in touch with him?"

She replied, "Well, I haven't talked to him in a while. I was five to thirteen when I was on the show, so, that was 30 years ago."

Keshia is now 35 and on Sunday night she was the first contestant booted off Celebrity Apprentice. Donald Trump took her to task for not reaching out to her former TV dad to help raise money for charity. The episode was taped last March, long before the sexual assault claims became public.  

Cosby has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct.

In the show, Trump asked, “Did you call Bill?”
“I did not. I have not talked to Bill Cosby on the phone in I don't know how long," she replied.

Trump fired back and said, “You were the project manager, you didn't make one call. I really believe that if you called that gentleman he would have helped you even if you hadn't spoken to him in years.”

Trump told INSIDE EDITION's Megan Alexander, "It was a show we shot just before all of these revelations came out about him. Whether they are true or not, he certainly does not do a very good job at defending himself. But, I really would have assumed that Keshia would have called Bill Cosby and gotten a big contribution."
