“When you got the Quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these Quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?” Bill Cosby was asked in the 2005 deposition
“Yes,” Bill Cosby replied.
Iconic comedian Bill Cosby, 77, famously known for playing Dr. Cliff Huxtable on the 1980s colossal hit TV series The Cosby Show, made the admission during his testimony in a civil case brought by a former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand, who alleged that Bill Cosby tricked her into taking drugs before he sexually assaulted her.
The case was settled for an undisclosed figure, but the documents in the case were unsealed yesterday, July 6, 2015, after the Associated Press went to court. Bill Cosby stepped down from the board of trustees at Temple University, his alma mater, last year. Forty-five women have come forward in alleging Bill Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them. Bill Cosby has never been criminally charged and most of the allegations exceed the statute of limitation, but his career has taken a huge hit with TV projects and live shows being canceled.
Janice Dickinson Reacts to Cosby’s Confession
Former supermodel Janice Dickinson was one of the forty-five women that allege Bill Cosby drugged and raped her in 1982. She said that she tried to write about the assault in her 2002 autobiography, No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World’s First Supermodel, but Bill Cosby and his lawyers pressured her and her lawyers to remove the details. Dickinson became the most visible of a number of women who accused Bill Cosby of committing sexual harassment and rape years before in multiple separate incidents. This was her reaction to Bill Cosby’s Quaaludes shocker.
“I don’t know how to feel. I don’t have the strength at the moment until — until each and every one of the women that have accused Bill Cosby along with myself and a few others that have personally reached out to me that will not come forward due to character victimization — I would like an apology for each and every one of us in order for my soul to feel,” Dickinson told ET exclusively on Tuesday. “I don’t feel any ‘hip-hip hoorays.'”
She also reacted strongly to Whoopi Goldberg defending Bill Cosby on Tuesday’s The View. “In America, still — I know it’s a shock — we’re actually innocent until proven guilty. He has not been proven,” Goldberg said.
“What is wrong with you, Whoopi Goldberg? What more does it take? You need to be fired,” Dickinson said passionately. “How dare you sit there on The View? You need to be fired, you stupid woman. That is ridiculous.”
In the wake of the latest news regarding comedian Bill Cosby’s rape allegations, African-American-skewing network Bounce TV has announced that it will immediately cease airing reruns of television series, Cosby.
