We’ve heard about the ups and downs Lisa Bonet had on the set of The Cosby Show and A Different World years ago when she played Denise Huxtable daughter to everyone’s favorite dad Heathcliff Huxtable.

Well, Mrs. Momoa is speaking out just a bit more about her time on the set of the most famous TV shows of all time.

In a recent interview with Net-A-Porter, she talked about Bill Cosby’s “energy”.

It was interesting when the interviewer asked her if the allegations of sexual misconduct “tainted her memory of those years”.   The mother of three responded, “No, it’s exactly as I remember it.”

She clarified her statement by saying she had no knowledge of “specific actions” but she says, “There was just energy.  And that type of sinister shadow energy cannot be concealed.”

Bonet goes on to say that if she had anything else to reveal she would have a long time ago.

Bounce said its viewers demanded the return. In a statement to the Huffington Post network officials explained:

“Following the results of a qualitative research study which indicated demand from a vast majority of Bounce viewers to see 'The Cosby Show' on television again, the network has made the decision to begin airing the series next month. While we take very seriously the accusations against Bill Cosby, our research showed that African-American consumers see a distinction between Bill Cosby, the man, and the iconic TV character Cliff Huxtable. Research and direct viewer feedback were the deciding factors in the network’s decision to move forward. The desire among African-Americans to see the show on TV again is being reinforced on social media based upon overwhelmingly positive viewer response since the announcement.”
