Another Bill Cosby Accuser Came Forward

Thanks to the Grammys, reports of Bill Cosby’s latest accuser got lost in the mix, so I’m going to go ahead and fix that by writing about on a boring ass Tuesday unless your life’s dream is to see Spider-Man in a movie with Captain America. Or read Shirley Manson call Kanye West a “twat” which was admittedly mine. I dream big. Via THR:

Helen Gumpel, formerly known as Helen Selby, said Sunday that Cosby made sexual advances and lewd gestures toward her while she was on the set of [The Cosby Show].
She said she was called to the show’s set for what she thought was another audition shortly after filming the one episode in 1987. She said she was brought to Cosby’s dressing room and that Cosby had her sit on a couch and handed her a drink. She said Cosby then stood in front of her with his crotch in her face.
“I never thought of myself as a victim because I refused his advances,” Gumpel said. “But my career was a victim.”

Bill Cosby also allegedly used the promise of acting work on The Cosby Show for his assault on Beverly Johnson which is why I’d like to direct this next part to Phylicia Rashad:

Dear Ms. Rashad,

I know you prefer to think of your time on The Cosby Show as part of television history and an integral thread in the tapestry that is Bill Cosby’s legacy, but it’s time to accept the very possibility that the whole thing was nothing more than a vehicle for him to shove his dick in women’s faces. Just shoving it right in there and hoping the drugs and/or the threat of never having a acting career will do the rest. That’s what Bill Cosby was – “allegedly” – doing behind the scenes of your most prominent work. Putting his dick into drugged faces. Rape if you want to get specific, and I do.

Best wishes,

Some Asshole With A Blog
