(NEWSER) – Bill Cosby's wife emerged from the shadows today to defend her husband against rape accusations, but doesn't deny them exactly—she just says the allegations by more than 15 women don't jibe with the man she knows, CBS News reports.

"He is a kind man, a generous man, a funny man," Camille Cosby says in a statement. "A different man has been portrayed in the media over the last two months. It is the portrait of a man I do not know." She accuses media organizations of failing to vet "my husband's accusers before stories are published or aired. An accusation is published, and immediately goes viral." She also compares the Cosby accusations to Rolling Stone's story about an alleged gang-rape at the University of Virginia.
