Word from the streets of Hollywood…
HSK Exclusive – The man who played ‘Cockroach’ on ‘The Cosby Show‘ is no stranger to witnessing friends forget where they come from.
What may be even worse is Carl ‘Cockroach’ Payne may have once been used as a tool by former friend Anthony Anderson, while the then struggling comedian was fighting to strike it rich and famous. Now that the tables have turned, and Payne is the one now left looking for work, his former funny man buddy seems to be leaving the Cosby kid in the dust.
Here’s the drop:
“Carl and Anthony were best friends back in the day. Anthony used to hang out at Carl’s house – even their wives were best friends.
Carl thought he was the man back then, cause he was on the Martin show. Anthony wanted Carl to put him on, but Carl didn’t help him out. Now that Carl can’t seem to get back on television, he’s saying Anthony forgot where he came from.
Anthony Anderson calmed down since after he had that sex case. Dude used to call himself ‘The Overweight Lover.’ Anthony lost it for a minute, he was smashing everyone who would let him in Hollywood. But, after that sexual harassment case, Anthony changed. He’s back home with his wife.
Maybe he and Carl will be friends again.”
