Bill Cosby has spoken for the first time since addressing his sexual assault and rape accusations confirming he is now completely blind.

Cosby recalls a frightening story with NNPA Newswire that occurred two years ago. He tells the publication that one morning, he woke up and nervously called out for his wife, Camille Cosby yelling, “I can’t see!” After being examined by doctors sometime later, they gave him the devastating news that “there was nothing that could be done to repair his vision.”

While Cosby, 79, did not bring up the ongoing 2006 sexual assault case in Pennsylvania, he did say that he is still working on new routines and hopes that one day, he can “begin the next chapter of his career.” “I miss it all and I hope that day will come. I have some routines and storytelling that I am working on,” Cosby says. “I think about walking out onstage somewhere in the United States of America and sitting down in a chair and giving the performance that will be the beginning of the next chapter of my career.”

Evin Cosby, Bill’s youngest daughter, recently wrote an essay to the same publication addressing the years of accusations against her father. She claims that the media and the public have not been fair to him at all.
