It was a “Cosby Show” reunion on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” Friday when Bill Cosby and Tempestt Bledsoe, who played Vanessa Huxtable on the series, sat down on Fallon’s couch.
The late night host explained that the “Cosby Show” reunion was a happy coincidence since both guests happened to be booked on the same night. “This is truly surreal for me,” Bledsoe said about sitting next to her TV dad after a clip from her show “Guys with Kids” played that featured her talking about sex.
Fallon asked Cosby if it’s fun to watch his TV daughter grow up and he replied emphatically, “No!” “When she turns out to be stunning, then you have problems,” he explained.
Bledsoe said the two get together often, but Cosby told her not to lie and joked, “Sometimes my checks are late and that’s when I see Tempestt.”
The entire cast of “The Cosby Show” reunited in 2009 on the set of “Today,” 25 years after the series premiered. “The Cosby Show,” which ran from 1984 to 1992, followed the Huxtables and their antics at their Brooklyn brownstone.
Many members of the cast are still on TV: Phylicia Rashād (Clair) is about to star on NBC drama “Do No Harm”; Malcolm Jamal-Warner (Theo) stars on BET’s “Reed Between the Lines” and makes guest appearances on “Community”; and Keshia Knight Pulliam (Rudy) recently ended her five-year run on “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.”
