Since photos have surfaced of former Cosby Show actor Geoffery Owens working at Trader Joes; he has came out and defended his situation. He explained that as result networks pilling Cosby Show episodes from airing, he has “lost a lot of money.” “I don’t feel sorry for myself about that. But the fact is that was another contributing factor, along with everything else everyone has to deal with — medical bills, car issues, kids in college, you name it.” je said
In the aftermath of the photos, Owens has got a lot of support. He has even been offered a acting gig by Tyler Perry. Tyler reached out via Twitter to Owens. “#GeoffreyOwens I’m about to start shooting OWN’s number one drama next week! Come join us!!! I have so much respect for people who hustle between gigs. The measure of a true artist,” he said. Owens hasn’t publically committed to the offer but did express his gratitude. “I mean, that kind of sounded like he was saying, ‘Come work with me.’ I’m so, like, skeptical. Like, really? Are you actually saying come work with me? Because we’ve never worked together before. So, that’s a very, very generous thing for him to say. And we’ll see what happens with that. But, that’s encouraging.” he said.
