The Cosby Show reunion with Bill Cosby and Tempestt Bledsoe was a total accident according late night host Jimmy Fallon. He shared with his audience that the two co-stars just so happened to be booked on the same night. As if one could even imagine otherwise, twas a very happy and entertaining coincidence indeed. As the reminiscing played out live on the set of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Bledsoe shared that sitting next to her television father was “truly surreal” for her. Upon being asked by Fallon if it was fun to watch his television daughter grow into a woman, Cosby met him with an instant  “No!” and proceeded to explain that “When she turns out to be stunning…you have problems.”

Aside from talking about days of old, Bledsoe’s latest role in NBC’s Guy’s With Kids was also a subject at hand. The audience got to view a trailer featuring some of her work for the show. Guy’s With Kids airs on Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30 central.
