Rosanne Barr says she wasn’t surprised at all when sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby came to the fore, and that no woman in Hollywood was surprised either.

In an appearance on Access Hollywood, Barr said, “There’s hardly any hairdressers or waitresses who don’t know somebody [affected by his actions].”

Yet the comedian believes that Cosby could still make amends for his alleged wrongdoings: “I have hopes that he would just make it clean and make it right,” adding that his ample fortune could be put to use, perhaps in the form of a scholarship.

“There are so many ways,” Barr said, “[But] here is nothing more powerful than ‘I am sorry.'”
