A New York Post report -- quoting two sources close to the Cosby family -- says that Camille Cosby is not only standing by her man, but believes that dozens of women who have alleged that they were drugged then raped by the comedian actually consented to sex.

According to the story:

Bill Cosby’s wife knows her husband is a serial philanderer, but believes his scores of accusers consented to drugs and sex, two confidants of the couple say.

Last week’s revelation that Cosby admitted during a deposition that he intended to ply women with Quaaludes before bedding them barely fazed Camille Cosby, the ­insiders told The Post.

“Camille still doesn’t believe that Bill provided drugs and had sex with women without their consent,” said a source employed by the Cosby family. “She’s well aware of his cheating, but she doesn’t believe that her husband is a rapist.”

The story says that there was a crisis PR meeting last week at the family's home in the Berkshires region of Massachusetts. That followed the release of a deposition from 2005 in which Cosby answered yes to a question about whether he obtained quaaludes with the intention of giving them to women with the intention of having sex with them.

The story continues:

“I created him, I knew what I was getting and we’ll fix this,” she told the gathering at a meeting at the couple’s Shelburne Falls, Mass., home Tuesday night.

“They are making him out to be such a bad guy, a monster,” Camille said, according to the source.
