According Massive Live “Actress Michelle Hurd, best-known for her role on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” is the latest woman to publicly accuse Bill Cosby of sexually inappropriate behavior. Hurd said the alleged incidents occurred when she was an extra on the landmark “The Cosby Show” decades ago. She posted her accusations on her Facebook page:
LOOK, I wasn’t going to say anything, but I can’t believe some of the things i’ve been reading, SO here is MY personal experience: 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 were 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”.I then started to take notice and found another actress, a stand-in as well, and we started talking….. A LOT …. turns out he was doing the same thing to her, almost by the numbers, BUT, she did go to his house and because I will not name her, and it is her story to tell, all I’ll say is she awoke, after being drugged, vomited, and then Cosby told her there’s a cab waiting for you outside.
I have ABSOLUTELY no reason to lie or make up this up!
Anyone that knows me, knows that!
Now you have a first hand account of my experience with Mr. Cosby.
Off you go…
Bill Cosby is America’s Dad and has yet to be criminally charged in any sexual assault case. Ten other women have come out accusing Cosby of inappropriate and lude sexual behavior:
- Kristina Ruehli of New Hampshire told Philadelphia magazine that Cosby attempted to force her to have oral sex with him in 1965 when she was a 22-year-old secretary at a talent agency.
- Renita Chaney Hill, told Pittsburgh’s CBS affiliate that she had a four-year relationship with the comedian when she was a teenage model in the 1980s.
- Actress Angela Leslie told the New York Daily News on Friday that the comedian plied her with alcohol, may have tried to drug her, and forced her to fondle him in a Las Vegas hotel suite in 1992.
- Registered nurse Therese Serignese recounted her tale of an alleged rape in Las Vegas in 1976 to Huffington Post on Thursday.
- Carla Ferrigno, the wife of actor and bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno, claimed Cosby forcibly kissed her at his home in 1967. on Thursday.
- Former supermodel Janice Dickinson told Entertainment Tonight earlier this week that she had been assaulted by Cosby in 1982.
- Tamara Green, a lawyer who claims to have been assaulted by Cosby in the 1970s and spoke out in 2005, wrote an op-ed piece about Cosby on Wednesday for Entertainment Tonight.
- Joan Tarshis, former publicist and journalist, told Hollywood Elsewhere on Sunday that she was drugged and assaulted by the comedian in 1969.
- Barbara Bowman, an Arizona artist and mother of two, told the Washington Post last week that Cosby drugged and raped her in 1985. She had first gone public with her story in 2005.
- Andrea Constand, a former director of operations at Temple University, settled a civil suit in 2006 with Cosby over an alleged incident two years.
Scotti, who worked as a facilities manager for the Brooklyn NBC Studio where “Cosby Show” was filmed, told the New York Daily News that he arranged for monthly payments and more for eight women during “The Cosby Show’s” run from 1984-1992. He claimed some women would receive as much as $2,000 at a time.
“He had everybody fooled,” Scotti said to the Daily News. “Nobody suspected.”
Scotti provided copies of money orders to four women to the Daily News and said Cosby asked him to put his own name on them…
“Why else would he be sending money?” Scotti asked. “He was sending these women $2,000 a month. What else could I think?”
The story also includes a quote from Cosby’s attorney Martin Singer denying Scotti’s allegations.
“What evidence does he have of Mr. Cosby’s involvement?” Singer said. “How would Scotti know if a woman was a model or a secretary? It appears that his story is pure speculation so that he can get his 15 minutes of fame.”
NBC declined comment on the story.
Cosby hasn’t really commented in detail on these allegations for the most part he has been silent on the situation, but on Friday when talking to Florida Today he defended his reason for staying silent
“I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos,” he said. “People should fact check. People shouldn’t have to go through that and shouldn’t answer to innuendos.”
