Most are aware that these sexual assault accusations against Bill Cosby has been going on since the 90's, but no charges have ever been brought up against him. The accusations went away for a while, but resurfaced last year after more alleged accusers came forward with their experiences of sexual assault in the presence of Cosby. Almost 50 women have come forward. Lawsuits were filed against him and the television father of America was no more. He has maintained his innocence through all this and recently filed an counter suit against a few of his accusers.
All of that changed today. Cosby was accused of "drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand," in the image above, in January 2004. Cosby said under oath that, "he had consensual sexual contact with Constand." She was the director of operations for Temple University women's basketball team. Constand said that she was given three blue pills by Cosby with wine at his mansion in January 2004 and was sexually assaulted.
Cosby was booked, as his mugshot above indicates. He was seen arriving at his arraignment earlier in the video below and his bail was set at $1 million dollars. Cosby bailed out, his passport was taken away from him and is currently at home. He was ordered to avoid any contact to Constand.

When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong: Fox News Suspends Stacey Dash & Lt. Col. Ralph Peters For "Completely Inappropriate & Unacceptable Remarks" Against President Obama War On Terror Speech
President Barack Obama addressed the nation last night, outlining America approach on terrorism. After his speech the Republicans had their moment to rebuttal what the president had to say. Fox news normally have panels setup to discussed important points or the lack there off during or after these events. Below is a short clip of Lt. Col. Ralph Peters outbursts against president Obama. He said; " I mean this guy is such a total pus**, it's stunning." Host Stuart Varnet immediately told Peters, "You can't use language like that on the program." Peters apologized, but the damage was done. He was suspended for two weeks.
Actress turned Fox Contributor Stacey Dash, also had a moment while co-hosting another program on the network, call 'Outnumbered.' Dash responded to President Obama's remarks by stating: "I felt like he could give a shit -- excuse me, like he could care less." Although she attempted to correct her poor choice of words, the damage was done. According to CNN'S Brian Stelter, Dash and Peters "were suspended on Monday for using profanities while criticizing President Obama."
Fox senior executive vice president Bill Shine said.
"Fox Business Network and Fox News Channel do not condone the use of such language, and have suspended both Peters and Dash for two weeks."
Howard Kurtz a host of Fox News 'MediaBuzz,' used his platform to criticized Dash and Peters. He said that their; "crude language on the air and conduct were embarrassing." Read his Tweets below.
I am aware that we are all entitled to our own opinions, but the total disrespect this country and others have shown our president is an embarrassment. I understand we have freedom of speech, but the lack of respect is disgusting. This is what terrorists wants. Send the country into panic mode, send innocent lives, husbands, wives, fathers, brothers and sisters, to die in a senseless war. That organization wants to instill fear people. Please remember, "he who angers you controls you." In order to stay focus and in control of a situation, you have to let go of fear. President Bush announced war after the September 11 attacks. Lives were lost, but President Obama taking office, led to the killing of Osama bin Laden. He knows what he's doing. We are so quick to point the finger when we have a war going on in our backyard. Every other day, people are dying in this country from mass shooting. We are aware that extremist are out there and it's clear that the president and his team are working with other countries recently attacked, such as France to come up with a solution. Going to war only fuels the fire. He also have plans in the works against these groups, being exact will defeat the purpose. Coming on national television and telling your attackers exactly what you're going to do, completely defeats all of the hard work and strategies set in place, so of course he had to be calm with the plan without being too exact. Continue to keep a focus mindset, President Obama. You are in charge for a reason.
The Irony: Kim Kardashian 'Broke The Internet' With Her Nude Shoot For Paper Magazine & Ayesha Curry Broke It With Her Opinion To Keep Her Clothes On
Stephen Curry and wife of four years, Ayesha Curry are the proud parents of two children. He's a very successful NBA player for the Golden State Warriors and his wife is a Chef. She have a cooking channel on YouTube. They are christians and from the outside looking in, have an almost perfect family. Almost perfect because no one is perfect.
While reading an article on the latest fashion trends, she decided to Tweet her opinion on the topic. Those Tweets above, send out a firestorm across the web. Many took offense to what she said. Twitter went into a meltdown. People Tweeted that she was 'Slut shaming' and many other things that I've decided not to post. People became so angry that they decided to search old images of Curry. Images below, with her legs fully expose. I personally do not see anything wrong with the images below.
Although she is entitled to her opinion, her delivery to many, was the problem. What people have to understand is, we don't all have to agree, but we can learn to respect each other way of life and opinions. Porn stars get married, models get married, people in the church gets married and divorce. Wearing clothes and living a certain way doesn't guarantee companionship, who you are as a person does. Ironically, Kim Kardashian who's name was thrown around a lot about having a sex tape, but is yet married, sister Khloe Kardashian came to Curry's defense. Super model Chrissy Teigen who was rcently in a Twitter debate reminding Presidential hopeful Donald Trump that his wife was once a topless model, also used the moment to support Curry and joked around. Khloe ex French Montana, also added to the jokes. Curry was trending for the most part of the day.
Coco Austin and and her husband Ice-T have been married for over a decade. They are now new parents to baby Chanel Nicole. Austin dresses with her body on full display and is married. Her husband is completely okay with his wife dressing the way that she does. She seems to be a sweet person.
Gorgeous prophetess Juanita Bynum, knows the Bible from cover to cover. She's an amazing woman of God. She had a televised larvish wedding to her estranged husband Bishop Weeks. Their marriage ended up in divorce, due to an alleged domestic violence, infidelity and so much more. Below, there's an image of educated and highly respected Billionare investor Robert Smith. The founder and CEO of Vista Equity Partners. He married 2010 Playboy's Playmate of the year. Taking your clothes off doesn't make you a bad person and keeping them on doesn't either. There's someone out there for everyone. You can be a virgin and an powerful woman of God, have everything in order, but if your attitude is terrible, no one will want to have a life with you. Curry even went on to ask people to agree to disagree, but to not degrade anyone choices or style of dressing in the process. Who we are shouldn't be defined by another human being. A man or a woman or any relationship you have are luxuries, you sholud complete yourself, be happy with yourself. If you chooses to be more covered great if not, allow people to live freely. State your opinion without degrading others. Continue to stay true to you Ayesha Curry. May God continue to bless you and your family.
