Hi Dina - Aileen finished filming in September 1981, and then she had to come back in November with Carol Burnett and the other Orphans to reshoot the opening scene, so they had to redye her hair, since she had to wear the wig. Then they had to dye it again when the movie opened, because of all the personal appearances Aileen did with the wig on in the summer of 1982. That's why her hair was still partly light in August 1982 when she did the Cosby interview. In the TV interviews without the wig in May 1982 when the movie premiered, she was completely blond.I am guessing then that she had finished filming about two maybe three months before being interviewed, because hair grows about an inch per month and her roots look like they're about two or three inches. (I wish I didn't know this, but I've been coloring my hair for a looong time.....)!!
I think (and I know this is bizarre) that he asks her if she uses cannabis because then he says something about not being allowed to mention drugs on TV and "just say no"Crimes ? What is it I don't know ? I agree this tape shows a highly inappropriate side to "Mr. Cosby" and Aileen did handle herself well, especially for a kid. Sometimes I don't "get" his humor, or the drawn-out delivery style, but I loved the Cosby show, and I admire his stance on education/family etc, maybe not every speech or issue or word....so this tape saddens me, because I guess he in under the influence....hmmmm. Yeah this particular vid was creepy but what do you mean by crimes ?
