After attempting to postpone the deposition, Camille Cosby, 71, was forced to testify in the case against America's formerly favorite dad, Bill Cosby, 78, who is accused of sexually assaulting seven different women over the course of several decades.

"Game on," the plaintiffs' lawyer, Joseph Cammarata, said before deposition began. "We can attempt to vindicate our client's interests." The attorney also shared that he didn't know what to expect of Camille's cooperation.

"This is a difficult issue as there is very little authority directly on the subject," U.S. District Judge Mark Mastroianni wrote last week after ruling to require Camille to testify. "The court concludes that the marital disqualification rule does apply to deposition testimony. Deponent, when appropriate, may refuse to answer deposition questions which call for testimony prohibited by the rule and not falling within an exception."

Luckily for Bill, who is currently free on $1 million bail after he surrendered himself to Pennsylvania police Dec. 30, the shamed comedian's wife will not be forced to answer questions protected by the marital disqualification.
