Alleged Bill Cosby Rape Victim Asks, “Why Didn’t Anyone Believe Me?”

Alleged Bill Cosby Rape Victim Asks, "Why Didn't Anyone Believe Me?"

Over the years, I’ve struggled to get people to take my story seriously. So last month, when reporter Lycia Naff contacted me for an interview for the Daily Mail, I gave her a detailed account. I told her how Cosby won my trust as a 17-year-old aspiring actress in 1985, brainwashed me into viewing him as a father figure, and then assaulted me multiple times. In one case, I blacked out after having dinner and one glass of wine at his New York City brownstone, where he had offered to mentor me and discuss the entertainment industry. When I came to, I was in my panties and a man’s t-shirt, and Cosby was looming over me. I’m certain now that he drugged and raped me. But as a teenager, I tried to convince myself I had imagined it. I even tried to rationalize it: Bill Cosby was going to make me a star and this was part of the deal. The final incident was in Atlantic City, where we had traveled for an industry event. I was staying in a separate bedroom of Cosby’s hotel suite, but he pinned me down in his own bed while I screamed for help. I’ll never forget the clinking of his belt buckle as he struggled to pull his pants off. I furiously tried to wrestle from his grasp until he eventually gave up, angrily called me “a baby” and sent me home to Denver.

Barbara Bowman has maintained that comedian Bill Cosby raped her for nearly 30 years, but it wasn’t until recently, when Hannibal Burress brought renewed attention to Cosby’s history of being accused of sexual assault, that her story began to be taken seriously. Today, in The Washington Post, Bowman, now married with two children, again shares her story, detailing how a much older Cosby manipulated her into trusting him, promising her that he would make her famous, and then sexually assaulted her multiple times when she was just 17 years old. According to Bowman (pictured above, inset, at age 19), Cosby’s circle of handlers and assistants were aware and turned a blind eye. Her story is one of over a dozen other stories shared by women who claim they were raped by the “Cosby Show” star, who has managed to walk away unscathed either because the accusations were not taken seriously by the authorities or because Cosby settled the suits brought against him out of court. Bowman has been speaking out about what Cosby did to her since it happened, as have many of his other alleged victims, causing Bowman to wonder why it took a male comedian making a joke at Cosby’s expense for their to be a public outcry.

Frisky Eats: Kristin Cavallari Helps Us Cook Up Some Delicious And Spicy Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

These Were Soooo Good!

Football season is in full swing, and all that time spent rejiggering your fantasy team, debating with your coworkers about who has better defense, and going hoarse screaming at the television screen every Thursday, Sunday and Monday works up quite an appetite. Who better to show us how to whip up some tasty tailgating snacks than Kristin Cavallari, foodie, shoe designer, football fan, wife to the Chicago Bears’ Jay Cutler and mom to sons Jackson and Camden. (Oh yeah, and you probably recognize her from two little shows called “The Hills” and “Laguna Beach.”) Kristin already showed me how to make some seriously simple, delicious, sweet and salty bacon-wrapped butternut squash. Now that I’ve cleaned my plate, it’s time for tailgating snack number two — sausage-stuffed jalapeno poppers. Instead of being greasy and deep-fried, they’re roasted in the oven just the way I like ‘em. Keep reading »

Tig & Venus 4 Ever: On “Sons Of Anarchy”‘s Surprising Romance Between A Bad Ass Biker And A Transgender Prostitute

Tig & Venus 4 Ever: On

I love “Sons of Anarchy” more than probably any other TV show, but I would not have expected that the bloody, brutal biker outlaw drama would present, dare I say it, one of the most lovely depictions of love between a cis person and trans person on screen. The chemistry between actors Kim Coates (Tig) and Walton Goggins (Venus) is incredible, and neither actor has ever been better, in my opinion, than on last night’s episode, when Venus and Tig finally confessed just how strong and real their feelings are for each other. It was one of the show’s most beautiful moments ever. Keep reading »
