Chelsea Handler Almost Got Bill Cosby’d (Allegedly)
In a new interview with Esquire, Chelsea Handler reveals Bill Cosby once invited her up to his hotel room in Atlantic City – years before any of the allegations came out – which obviously could’ve ended very badly and I wouldn’t wish that shit on a Kardashian. Unless you make me take a polygraph, but we’re getting off subject:
… I was in Atlantic City playing, doing stand-up, and he was doing stand-up in Atlantic City in the same hotel, and at like three o’clock in the afternoon, someone from the hotel came down and said, “Oh, you know, Mr. Cosby would really like to meet you up in his hotel suite.” And I thought, That’s really weird. This was like ten years ago. And I said, That’s really weird. I don’t want to go alone. I go, I don’t know him. So the three guys I was with—thank God these guys were with me. One was filming and one was like a producer; we were filming something—I brought them up with me to his room and thank God I did, because now I know what would’ve happened if I went up there alone. And I forgot about it when all the stories about Bill Cosby came out. I was like, I didn’t even think of it. Then my friend texted me the other day saying, “Do you remember that night we went up to, or that afternoon we went up to Bill Cosby’s and you were so freaked out you made us come with you?” And I said, Yeah, and he said, “Hello! You could’ve been one of his victims if we weren’t there.” And I went, “Oh my gosh …” Yeah, so yeah, he’s guilty.
Of course, if this is true, it means Bill Cosby moved on from “mentoring” young models to straight up luring women to his hotel room, so there has to be other female comics out there with stories to tell. Provided they survived the drugging process and aren’t buried beneath Phylicia Rashad’s pool. (That’s my new theory I’m trying out. What do you think? Be honest.)
