Camille Cosby has stood by Bill Cosby through many public firestorms. Do you believe you would do the same for your husband?

The scandal surrounding Bill Cosby shows no signs of letting up anytime soon.

Yesterday, supermodel Janice Dickinson shared a candid story with Entertainment Tonight about a time Cosby allegedly raped her in 1982. Then, Netflix announced it was "postponing" his Thanksgiving comedy special, while NBC said it was canceling his new television series. 

Today, the Associated Press shared previously unreleased footage of a joint interview between Cobsy and his wife Camille that got a little awkward when the reporter asked the comedian about the resurfacing rape allegations.

"There is no comment about that," Cosby kept repeating. 

Camille Cosby is no stranger to controversy surrounding her famous husband. The allegations of rape began all the way back in 1969. Not to mention his extra-marital affair in 1997. But she's stayed by his side, despite the public scrutiny. 

When a couple gets married they vow to stay together for better or for worse. But "for worse" can get a lot worse when the world is watching your marriage.
