Two More Women Share Bill Cosby Allegations & Their Stories Are Sadly Similar to the Others
Shortly after Bill Cosby spoke out to address the multiple, horrifying rape allegations against him, it seems that two more women have come forward with allegations of sexually inappropriate behavior from the star. Sadly, their stories sound similar to previous accounts we've heard from victims like model Janice Dickinson, and actress Angela Leslie — and they're just as horrifying as their stories as well. Comedy club manager Joyce Emmons and Law and Order: SVU actress Michelle Hurd both reportedly went public with allegations against the comedian this weekend.
Hurd reportedly took to her Facebook on Thursday to describe her accounts with Cosby when they were working together on The Cosby Show:
I did stand-in work on The Cosby Show back in the day and YES, Bill Cosby was VERY inappropriate with me. It started innocently, lunch in his dressing room, daily, then onto weird acting exercises where he would move his hands up and down my body, (can’t believe I fell for that) I was instructed to NEVER tell anyone what we did together, (he said other actors would become jealous) and then fortunately, I dodged the ultimate bullet with him when he asked me to come to his house, take a shower so we could blow dry my hair and see what it looked like straightened. At that point my own red flags went off and I told him, ‘No, I’ll just come to work tomorrow with my hair straightened.’
Hurd reportedly also said she also happened to speak with another stand-in for The Cosby Show who, unfortunately, experienced the same things she did while alone with the actor. Sadly, Hurd said the unnamed woman actually ended up at Cosby’s house and was allegedly drugged.
She says she took the pill, blacked out, and the next thing she knew she was nude in bed in Cosby's suite with one of his friends—a guy who had unsuccessfully tried hitting on her earlier in the evening.
Emmons says she confronted Bill and demanded to know what drug she took, and he laughed and said it was "just a Quaalude."
These two women, sadly, join a fast-growing list of women who have spoken up with accusations against Cosby — and these new allegations make all of them that much more troubling.
As for Cosby, his lawyer released the following statement last week:
Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr. Cosby have resurfaced. The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true. Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment. He would like to thank all his fans for the outpouring of support and assure them that, at age 77, he is doing his best work. There will be no further statement from Mr. Cosby or any of his representatives.
And on Saturday, it was revealed that Cosby spoke out, as well.
