She always has the craziest stories, and Chelsea Handler told Esquire magazine that more than a decade ago she almost fell victim to accused sex offender Bill Cosby.
The 40-year-old comedienne explained, "Oh, I was in Atlantic City playing, doing standup, and he was doing standup 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 10 years ago.”
Continuing to splash headlines, Bill Cosby received another reckoning of public backlash from NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt earlier this week during the Television Critics Association panel in Beverly Hills, CA.
While chatting with colleagues about Bill's recent sexual assault allegations, Greenblatt told reporters that Cosby isn't welcome back to the network, which once housed the "Cosby Show" from 1984 to 1992. When a reporter asked Robert if it's safe to say that NBC won't work with the 77-year-old again, he replied "Yes, I think it's safe to say."
His sexual assault allegations are well-known the world over, but Bill Cosby isn’t content to sit back and shut up. The “Fat Albert” comedian performed at Budweiser Gardens in Ontario, Canada on Thursday night and during his set he made a joke referencing the claims that decades ago he got girls drunk and drugged them before raping them.
When a woman from the audience got up and began walking out, Bill asked her where she was going. She replied by telling him she was getting a drink and offered to get him one too. But Cosby pointed to his water bottle and then replied, “You have to be careful about drinking around me,” as a sarcastic comment about his accusers.
He’s one of the top writers and producers in Tinseltown and Judd Apatow is using his clout to try and get Bill Cosby banned from every venue in North America.
The “Anchorman” honcho began speaking out against the “Cosby Show” star over the weekend, citing the 30+ female accusers who have stated that Bill raped, drugged or sexually abused them years ago. Judd tweeted, “so @Centre_Square - are you really going to let Bill Cosby perform on your stage January 7? You too @BudGardens Jan 8? Is Cosby only popular in Ontario Canada at this point? Do people still find him delightful after 30 accuses?”
He’s stayed pretty quiet throughout the recent season of sexual assault claims and now Bill Cosby has something to say.
In a new interview with the New York Post’s Page Six, the “Cosby Show” star made a simple request of the ‘black media’ while also praising his wife of over 50 years, Camille. Cosby began, "Let me say this. I only expect the black media to uphold the standards of excellence in journalism and when you do that you have to go in with a neutral mind.”
