Camille Cosby says she never read Bill Cosby’s 2005 deposition — in which he admitted he had acquired Quaaludes to give to women whom he wanted to have sex with.
Camille was forced to testify in a deposition in the defamation lawsuit against husband Bill in late February — part of which was made available to the public this week.
According to The Washington Post, Camille refused to answer questions a total of 98 times during the deposition. Since the deposition took place in Massachusetts, a marital disqualification rule prohibits spouses from having to testify about private marital conversations.

Camille Cosby, 71, repeatedly resisted answering whether she knew about various lawsuits involving her husband.
At one point, Joseph Cammarata, an attorney for the women suing Bill Cosby, asked her whether she was aware of the lawsuit that had been filed against her husband by “these ladies in the case,” the case for which she was being deposed.
“I don’t know,” she answered.
Cosby and her attorneys, citing marital and attorney-client privileges, also resisted answering whether she was aware of widely reported facts, such as the lawsuit filed against her husband by Andrea Constand, a former Temple University women’s basketball official.
Cosby’s reticence drew a lecture from Cammarata.
“Let me just say one thing just to be clear, Mrs. Cosby, that your refusal to answer as a witness, you just can’t refuse to answer a question,” Cammarata said.
We don’t even know what to say.
