It’s so sad how many women have already claimed they were sexually assaulted, harassed, or drugged by Bill Cosby. And now, two more names can be added to the ever-growing list.
During a press conference in NYC on Thursday, two new alleged victims — Charlotte Fox and a woman who only wants to be identified as “Elizabeth” — told their tales about their experiences with the 78-year-old.
Attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing the actor’s accusers, led the event that allowed these ladies to share their sad stories.
Much like one of the victims who came forward a little over a week ago, Elizabeth says she met Bill while working as a flight attendant.
She explained that the comedian invited her to the Playboy Mansion, but she turned him down. However, when he later called her hotel room to try again, she agreed.
Afterwards, she claims they went out to dinner, where she did not drink or do drugs. However, after some pressure from Mr. Cosby, Elizabeth did have some sake.
She said she shortly began to feel the effects of the drink:
“I was completely in a trancelike state, like I was dreaming. I don’t remember how we got to his hotel room. He went to the bathroom and undressed and came out in a robe.”
She started to cry when she revealed what allegedly happened next:
“He made me kneel down. All I know is that it was the most horrifying thing that could happen to an innocent woman.”
Charlotte’s story was slightly similar. She says she met Bill while working on the set of Uptown Saturday Night, and he invited her out — along with a couple other people — to a jazz club.
After they got dinner and drinks, she alleges he invited them back to the Playboy Mansion. She said that she began to feel sick after drinking and eating at the famed property:
“I vaguely remember coming back from the bathroom. The next thing I remember was that I was sort of awake, in a bed, with no clothes on and there was Mr. Cosby, in a robe, crawling from the bottom of the bed.”
She added that she did not encourage the encounter:
“I was incapacitated and couldn’t say no. He engaged in sexual activity with me. It was not consensual.”
Our hearts are completely broken for these women, but we applaud the strength they showed by sharing their stories. They join more than 40 other women who have spoken out against the Cosby Show star.
Bill is set to be deposed in October for a civil suit by Judy Huth, who claims he assaulted her when she was only 15 years old.
