Bill Cosby has three new accusers claiming he sexually assaulted them. The three came forward very recently, saying Bill Cosby assaulted them in the 1970s and 1980s. One of the women appeared on The Cosby Show. Another is the former wife of a vice president at the William Morris Agency.
At a press conference on Wednesday, Gloria Allred, who represents more than 20 of Bill Cosby’s accusers, said these three women have come forward now to show their support for others who have claimed they were sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby.
“There is no statute of limitations on free speech,” Allred says. “A person who alleges that she or he is a victim can speak out at any time.”
Colleen Hughes was one of the three women who spoke at Wednesday’s press conference. She was a young American Airlines stewardess when she met Bill Cosby on a flight to L.A. He reportedly flirted with her throughout the flight and invited her to lunch in Beverly Hills. She said she would go, but only if another stewardess came along. The other woman never showed up.
Hughes accompanied Cosby and his driver to a Beverly Hills hotel. He watched TV while she changed clothes in the bathroom. When she came out he was allegedly drinking champagne out of her Gucci pump. She said he raised the pump to her saying, “A princess should always drink champagne out of a glass slipper.”
After drinking some of the champagne, Hughes said the next thing she remembered was waking up at 5:15 p.m. Her clothes were strewn around the room and she “felt semen on the small of my back and all over me,” she claimed.
“It was disgusting,” Colleen Hughes said. “Bill obviously did not use a condom and there was no lunch and Bill was nowhere to be seen. I was confused and ashamed and never told anyone about what happened to me.”

Linda Ridgeway Whitedeer addressed the press conference saying she was recently divorced from Fred Apollo, a vice president and department head of live TV for the William Morris Agency, when she met Bill Cosby. She met up with Cosby on a movie set where she believed she was being interviewed. He quickly lured her into the director’s office, where he put his penis into her mouth.
“His attack was fast with surgical precision and surprise on his side,” she said. “When Cosby was done there was a horrible mess of semen all over my face, my clothes and in my hair.”
Eden Tiri was a 22-year-old actress when she was given a part playing a cop on The Cosby Show in 1989. She was led to Bill Cosby’s dressing room three times–the first two times he wasn’t there. The third time, Bill Cosby was allegedly waiting for her. Inside the dressing room, she alleged he wrapped his arms around her and whispered in her ear, “See that’s all we were going to do, make love. This is making love. He turned me around, hugged me and I left without saying a word.”
Bill Cosby has been ordered by a judge to give a deposition on October 9 in the civil suit filed by another of his alleged victims, Judy Huth. Huth claimed Bill Cosby molested her inside the Playboy Mansion when she was just 15 years old. The deposition will mark the first time Bill Cosby has spoken about the sexual molestation accusations since 2005. That was when he admitted he gave a women Quaaludes before having sex with her.
Do you expect that these three new women who have come forward and claimed Bill Cosby sexually assaulted them will have any impact on the rest of the accusations others have made? Might this be the beginning of the end for Bill Cosby?
