Gloria Allred makes a racy, surprising Bill Cosby joke

- While dancing on the prime-time political show "The Issue Is:," Gloria Allred made a racy joke at Bill Cosby's expense. 

"Bill Cosby is going to have to dance quickly in the shower in prison," she said with a smile. 



The long-time advocate for the LGBT community and victims of sexual assault represented more than 30 of Cosby's accusers. She was inside the Pennsylvania court room when the former "Cosby Show" star was sentenced to 3-10 years in prison. 


During the show, Allred discussed the sentencing. "He has been made accountable, there has been justice in a criminal case in a court of law," she said. 


Brian Goldsmith, an attorney and co-host of the "Katie Couric" podcast, added "More than 60 women came forward, many of whom, he drugged and raped. My only question is: 'Is 3-10 years enough for what he did?' You got to look at the culture of enablers."


Shawn Steel, a lawyer and member of the Republican National Committee, said Cosby's sentencing is a "cultural shift. Every male needs to think about this."


Steel, who often spars with Allred politically, gave her credit for her work on the Cosby case. "She came up with amazing legal theories, I wish I had that kind of imagination," he said.


"The Issue Is: with Elex Michaelson" airs every Friday night at 10:30 p.m. on FOX 11 Los Angeles.   

You can watch the complete show where the panel discuss Brett Kavanaugh's future, the Cosby case and a look back at the memorable Sarah Palin interview. 


The show often features musical bumps before and after guest segments. As she's done in the past, Allred asked host Elex Michaelson to dance with her at the end of her segment. Then, she made that surprising joke.
