The Cosby showdown.

Byline: SAIRA KHAN

After dozens of allegations of sexual assault, a mistrial caused by a hung jury and a lot of mud-slinging, American TV legend Bill Cosby was finally found guilty this week of three counts of drugging and molesting one young woman.

The actor, who is now 80, could end his life in prison. He has vowed to appeal but might yet face a 10-year sentence.

It's hard to believe that this giant of the small screen, who seemed totally indistinguishable from his TV role as the funny, big-hearted dad we all wanted, was a scheming monster in real life.

But that's the lesson we all need to learn in the age of #MeToo - never blur the lines of fantasy and reality.
