Bill Cosby came clean about the exact “type” of women he sought out.
A newly discovered section of his decade-old deposition revealed the vulnerable young women the comedian recruited from a New York modeling agency while on The Cosby Show. According to Cosby himself, ideally these women were from out-of-town and “financially not doing well.”
Agency owner Sue Charney connected Cosby with the newcomers, who would dine in his dressing room before the show. This “present” was Cosby and Charney’s way of keeping the girls around and their mouths shut.
Cosby said in the deposition:
“It’s a very, very good meal, probably better than anything they’ve had the time that they’re in New York.”
Charney, who passed in 2011, also represented Janice Dickinson and former model Jewel Allison, both of whom say they were sexually assaulted and drugged by Bill Cosby.
A model named Jennifer Thompson said he slipped something in her drink and placed her hand on his genitals. Allison said Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her – she was left abused and vomiting in the back of a cab.
Charney introduced Cosby to 20-30 struggling models, and these are just two of their stories.
While it seems the man is finally getting what he deserves, in many ways, we’re still turning a blind eye. The publisher of the Bill Cosby biography told The Associated Press on Wednesday that no revisions or future editions are planned for the book. Despite recent events, there are still no plans to pull the book entirely, though many comments praising Cosby’s legacy were removed from the web.
As of now, more than two dozen women have come forward to report that Cosby molested them, and still he has not been charged with a crime.
