Fox appeared on The Meredith Vieira Show this morning, where she talked about both her stint on Celebrity Apprentice as well as the hot topic—Cosby. 

"I have to agree with Keisha: The man I met was nothing like the man they are describing," Fox said, as she recalled her brief time on The Cosby Show. "He was nice, kind. There was no sexual overtones or anything, so I defend him, and I stand by him as well, too."

"We shall see," she said when Vieira wondered the allegations were true. "We weren't all there."
