The three women came forward saying that Cosby met them at different times in the 1970’s and drugged and abused them like he had done to so many other women.
Just when we start thinking that Bill Cosby could not have stooped any lower, we are reminded by one of his many victims that he did. Mr. Cosby is scheduled to be questioned under oath on Oct. 9 in a case involving accusations that he sexually assaulted a woman, Judy Huth of California, in 1974, when she was 15.
Mr. Cosby’s lawyers said they had filed a motion for a protective order seeking to keep this questioning private. Ms. Huth’s legal team has filed an opposing motion seeking to make the deposition public, and a hearing on whether to allow the protective order is scheduled for Oct. 5, Ms. Allred said.
And for good reason maybe, as three more women came forward with similar accusation of being drugged and sexually abused by Mr. Cosby. Their testimonies cannot be taken into account for the current case being fought against Mr. Cosby.
The three women include a former Mrs. America, a former cocktail server at a jazz club and a woman introduced to Cosby because she wanted him to help her be featured in Playboy magazine, .
The women entailed their stories in detail. Pamela Abeyta said she was a 25-year-old aspiring model when she met Cosby who was performing at the Las Vegas Hilton in 1979. She told People that she thought it might lead to an opportunity with Playboy because she knew Mr. Cosby was friends with Hugh Hefner so she went with him.
Abeyta recalls that Cosby invited her to stay in a guest room in his suite and the next day he bought her $2,500 in clothes. She said she attended a dinner show but by the end of the show "everything became a blur.
She says that she doesn’t remember leaving the dinner show and when she came to she was lying in Bill Cosby's bed not her own room. She said that she awakened for a second time and then blacked out.
When she came to again she saw two other naked people in the room by the bed. She said that Cosby was sitting on the side of the bed and she blacked out again. Abeyta said she woke up the next day, left the hotel, and barely remembered taking a flight home.
Sharon Van Ert claimed that at the time of her alleged assault in 1976 she was working as a cocktail waitress at Concerts of the Sea, a famous jazz club on the Redondo Beach pier where Cosby sometimes hung out.
The former waitress claimed that as she left the club one night, Cosby offered to walk her to her car. Van Ert said Cosby got in her car and told her she was too drunk to drive. She recalled that after a while, Mr. Cosby started getting fresh. He was touching me and rubbing her leg.
The next thing she remember was waking up in her car, her head hanging down from the seat, alone. She said that she knew was drugged because she threw up and she never threw up or drank too much. She said that she believes that he must have put something in her drink while they were closing up the place.
She says that she realized when she got home that her panties were missing and she never found them. Van Ert said she contacted the owner's wife about what happened but nothing came of it so she quit.
The third alleged victim, Lisa Christie, said Cosby became a father figure to her when she was an 18-year-old model. The former Mrs. America said she appeared on Jell-O commercials with him and was an occasional extra on The Cosby Show.
She met him at his brownstone for acting lessons and she even met him at a jazz club in the Village where he had her dress to look like Lisa Bonet. He said that he wanted me to replace her on the Cosby Show.
A couple of years after they met, Cosby allegedly flew her to meet him in Chicago at the Ambassador Hotel. At the hotel, Christie claimed Cosby gave her a drink and tried to kiss her. When she rebuffed his advances, Cosby allegedly told her that she was never going to make it in the business unless she slept with him.
Christie said she slept on the couch and left the motel the next morning. She said that she was one of the fortunate ones to escape and she was here now to support all of the victims who didn’t.
Cosby's attorney did not immediately respond for comment. Mr. Cosby, 78, has repeatedly denied the accusations of drugging or sexual assault that have been brought by dozens of women.
He has not been charged with a crime. A spokesman for Mr. Cosby, Andrew Wyatt, said Mr. Cosby’s team was “not making any comment” about the new accusations.
