The Cosby Show Cast Reunites For 25 Year Anniversary On Today, NO Lisa Bonet

Bill Cosby, Phylicia Rashad, Keisha Knight Pullian, Malcolm Jamal Warner, Raven-Symoné, Geoffrey Owens, and Earle Hyman reunited on NBC's Today to commemorate the 25 year anniversary of the phenomenally popular eighties sitcom The Cosby Show and discuss how they're portrayal of a middle class African American family impacted society. Conspicuously absent from the Huxtable gathering was Lisa Bonet who portrayed daughter Denise Huxtable. Bonet who recently had a second child with boyfriend Jason Momoa was also a no-show on the 2002 reunion special and the 2008 reunion on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Matt Lauer hosted the first half of the special while Al Roker, dressed in one of Cosby's signature sweaters, hosted the second half where the cast answered viewer questions. A talkative Bill Cosby spoke about Rashad's character as "the mother with the eyes," his insistence that Geoffrey Owens not play the chauvinistic Elvin as a "butthole," the special pin he wore on the show in honor of Sammy Davis Jr., and director Jay Sandrich's unique editing, When asked whether they were out to depict and American or an African American family, Rashad eloquently answered, "We were always an African family. An African American family is an American family, and that's who we always were. This American family has existed for decades and centuries. We were just new to television." Cosby urged for people to "write decent scripts...stop trying to be profanity laden, and [using] all the sexual parts, and what you call reality, which is not really reality. Good decent writing never hurt anything."

Gossip Girl Watch: Jesus Takes The Wheel As Poppy Plots A Ponzi Scheme

leighton_meester_chace_crawford The Gossip Girl gang is all here, Blair, Chuck, Nate, Serena even Georgina, and they're scheming and plotting together like true Upper East Side friends. But can born-again Georgina take the wheel back from Jesus and steer everyone out of a financial mess?! Here are Blindie's TOP 10 moments from Gossip Girl's "Wrath of Con" episode:

  1. Poppy Lifton (Tamara Feldman) is using Gabriel (Armie Hammer) to run a Ponzi scheme on Serena's friends and even Rufus Humphrey (Matthew Settle) gets caught up in it. Because Ponzi schemes aren't just for Jewish people anymore.
  2. We love how Lily Bass (Kelly Rutherford) would rather pay everyone off and prevent scandal and a ruined social image rather than go after the real crooks.
  3. Rufus Humphrey plans to surprise Lily with dinner and pop the question so he wheels the food to her ritzy Manhattan apartment in a rickety wagon! Hasn't he ever heard of delivery?! Take that old lady wagon back to Brooklyn!
  4. Last season everyone wanted Serena (Blake Lively), now Blair (Leighton Meester) is in high demand as Nate (Chace Crawford) and Chuck (Ed Westwick) fight for her attention.
  5. Can Dan Humphrey's (Penn Bagdley) big mouth ruin anymore plots?!
  6. Blair asks Chuck to declare his love for her or let her go. Of course Chuck does not let his guard down and he lets Blair go, then admits to Serena that it's because he loves her and can't make her happy.
  7. Georgina's cell phone ring is a "praise the Lord" song.
  8. The big plan to bust Poppy goes south as Serena is hauled away by the cops and Poppy trots off with Georgina's bible money.
  9. We lost count of the Jesus mentions after the first half hour, but here are tour faves: "I gave up my old ways when I let Jesus take the wheel," Georgina tells Blair; "I will never forgive you for what you did and neither will Jesus," Blair screams at Georgina; "You can tell Jesus that the bitch is back," as Georgina finishes the job that Chuck and Blair couldn't and goes after Poppy.
  10. How good and kind of cheesy was the teaser for the next episode featuring flashbacks of Lily and Rufus in their teen years and a performance by No Doubt! Yes, it's a pilot for that Gossip Girl spin-off about Lily's wild years.
