Is Bill Cosby having an “amazing” prison “experience” since being convicted of sexual assault?
Let his press spokesman Andrew Wyatt tell it, the disgraced comedian-actor is faring well behind bars.
Wyatt revealed in a new TV interview with WCAU in Philadelphia that Cosby thinks life behind bars is an “amazing experience” and he also offered new details about the disgraced TV star’s time behind bars at SCI Phoenix, the maximum security prison in Skippack Township, Pa., outside Philadelphia.
“Yeah, he used the term amazing experience,” Wyatt said.
According to CNN, Cosby was moved to general population two weeks ago and is now in a single cell without a cellmate, said Amy Worden, press secretary for the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections.
Last September, the 81-year-old was sentenced to three to 10 years in prison for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in 2004.
Camille Cosby has not yet visited her husband in prison, sparking rumors that a divorce is imminent. But Wyatt says Mr. Cosby prefers it to receive little to no visitors.
“Right now I’m his only visitor outside of his attorneys, and that’s the way he wants it,” Wyatt said. “She has not visited him. He does not want her to visit him.”
Instead, Mr. and Mrs. Cosby prefer to speak to by phone — three times a day for three minutes each, the report states.
As far as his mental and physical state, Wyatt said Cosby has lost weight while behind bars; as the wakes up early to exercise in his cell. He also adheres to a strict diet; avoiding carbs and sugar.
“And he hasn’t drank any coffee since he’s been in there. Now the funny part about it (is) Mrs. Cosby’s been trying to stop him from drinking coffee for 55 years and it took this to stop him from drinking coffee,” Wyatt said.
“He’s mentally strong. He’s just a strong man,” he added.
