Born on March 20, 1944, in Washington, D.C., United States, Camille Olivia Cosby is an American television producer, philanthropist, and the wife of comedian Bill Cosby.
The character of Clair Huxtable from The Cosby Show was based on her.
Cosby has been active in her husband’s businesses as a manager, as well as involving herself in academia and writing, despite avoiding public life.
She’s tough to deal with when it comes to my business. She also helped in the development of her husband’s material, including suggestions for The Cosby Show, like suggesting the Huxtable family be middle rather than working class.
She earned a master’s degree from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 1990, followed by a Doctorate of Education (Ed.D.) in 1992.
