Roseanne Barr recently spoke with Access Hollywood about her thoughts on fellow comedian and 90’s sit-com star, Bill Cosby’s, sexual assault allegations.

The ‘Momsters’ host explains that no one in Hollywood was shocked by the accusations.

“Now I’m really [going to get] in trouble-but, you know, like every woman in Hollywood- there’s hardly any hairdressers or waitresses or working women who don’t know somebody… We’ve all heard it for a long time, and it surprises nobody,” Barr told Access Hollywood.

The one element of the allegations that shocked Barr was his choice not to take responsibility for his actions or apologize publicly.

“Maybe it’s not the end of it. I have hopes for this great comic. I do. I have hopes that he would make it clean, and make it, you know, make it right, and I do think he could do that,” she explains.

“I mean, there’s none of us alive who can’t go, ‘I made a mistake. I had a really bad problem and I’m fessing up to it. And here’s a scholarship.’ You know, there’s a million ways around it to go. But there’s nothing more powerful than, ‘I am sorry’.”

After 33 allegations, Cosby has maintained his innocence surrounding all sexual assault accusations.
