Just when you thought Bill Cosby couldn't be any worse, two more women have stepped forward with harrowing accounts of sexual assault at the hands of The Cosby Show star.
People reported Thursday that Gloria Allred — who is representing the victims — held a press conference with two new women, Charlotte Fox and "Elizabeth," who had a familiar story to tell about Cosby. Sarah Butterfield, one of the first women who came forward with allegations against Cosby, also attended the press conference as a show of support.
Fox said in a statement that she met Cosby in the 1970s while she was a 23-year-old extra on the set of Uptown Saturday Night. He asked her to join him for a jam session at a local jazz club and then invited her to the Playboy Mansion. She said she grew ill after eating and drinking the food Cosby served her.
"I vaguely remember coming back from the bathroom," she said, reading from her statement. "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 continued: "I was incapacitated and couldn't say no. He engaged in sexual activity with me. It was not consensual."
The woman who called herself "Elizabeth" — a pseudonym to protect her identity — was 20 years old and working as a flight attendant when Cosby was one of her passengers. She accepted an invitation from him to come to the Playboy Mansion and then go out to dinner at a restaurant called Tokyo KaiKan.
After Cosby pressured her to try some sake, she started to feel odd. "I was completely in a trance-like 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 read from her statement. "He made me kneel down. ... All I know is that it was the most horrifying thing that could happen to an innocent woman." People reported that she burst into tears while reading the story.
Cosby will testify about some of the charges on Oct. 9.
