In the wake of the release last week of Bill Cosby’s damning deposition that seemingly sealed the fate of his already tarnished legacy, his wife, who is also his business manager, called a crisis meeting with top advisers last week in an effort to “get back out in front of” the story, sources tell the New York Post.

Camille Cosby, 71, issued a stern directive to advisers to corral lawyers and public relations specialists to help restore her embattled 78-year-old husband’s once-saintly image.

“I created him, I knew what I was getting, and we’ll fix this,” she allegedly told the gathering at a meeting at the couple’s Shelburne Falls, Mass., home Tuesday night, writes the Post. “They are making him out to be such a bad guy, a monster.”

During a 2005 deposition released last week, Cosby admitted that he purchased Quaaludes to give young women with whom he wanted to have sex. The news came after years of allegations that he drugged women before sleeping with them without their consent.

Calling her “a proud but stubborn woman,” two insiders told the Post that Camille believes her husband’s accusers consented to drugs and sex.

“Camille still doesn’t believe that Bill provided drugs and had sex with women without their consent,” a source employed by the Cosby family told the Post. “She’s well aware of his cheating, but she doesn’t believe that her husband is a rapist.”
