Words by Dee Phunk
Just this past Tuesday, television’s original primetime MILF (before that household jargon even existed) Phylicia Rashad celebrated her 64th revolution around the sun. But on Thursdays nights, from 1984 through 1992, we knew her better as Clair — attorney by day and matriarch of the Huxtable household by night — on NBC’s award-winning sitcom The Cosby Show. Family, good morals and honesty were usually the dominant themes. America reciprocated that by lavishing the show with incredible ratings. Take a quick stroll with us down Stigwood Avenue as we utilize Throwback Thursday to highlight our top ten favorite Clair Huxtable moments.
