Claire Huxtable’s Secret Past.

The Internet again justifies its existence:

“In 1978, [Phylicia Allen (now Phylicia Rashād)] released the album Josephine Superstar, a disco Concept album telling the life story of Josephine Baker. The album was mainly written and produced by Jacques Morali and Rashād’s second husband Victor Willis, original lead singer and lyricist of the Village People. She met Willis while they were both cast in The Wiz.”

    I’ll never look at Clair Huxtable the same way ever again. I’ll bet that outfit was hanging in her closet next to the power suits.

  • I’d go one step farther and say I bet she wore that under her power suits.She is a fine woman though.Classy and sexy.Which is a hard combo to accomplish.

  • Dear Lord how will we hold our heads up at Martha’s Vinyard this summer? :-)

  • This is amazing! Why haven’t we heard about this before?
