“Cosby Show” Star Raven-Symoné Says She “Wasn’t Taken Advantage Of” By Bill Cosby

I was practically a baby on that show and this is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of! Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!” [People]
  • The AP has released footage from a November 6 interview with Cosby, where he downright refuses to address the sexual assault and rape allegations against him, saying, “I would appreciate it if it was scuttled. I think if you want to consider yourself to be serious, that it will not appear anywhere.” [Us Weekly]
  • And another of Cosby’s previously anonymous accusers has revealed her identity and is talking to People about the assault she said occurred in 1976 when she was 19. She said the comedian gave her Quaaludes and the next thing she remembers is coming to with Cosby having intercourse with her. “I felt powerless, I didn’t know what to do, and the drugs certainly enhanced that,” says Therese Serignese. “That’s what I remember – having sex with him, not wanting to be there, not knowing how to get out of there.” [People] Keep reading »

On The Rack: Breasts And A Starlet’s Career

Yesterday, Amelia noticed something different about Ali Lohan’s physique, so that got me thinking about how breasts, or a lack thereof, can affect a young starlet’s rise to fame. Here’s a list of celebs whose breasts have affected their careers.

  • Soleil Moon Frye is best known for her role as Punky in the television sitcom Punky Brewster. When she was 16, Soleil had breast reduction surgery, going from 36DD to 34C because she had back problems. But knowing our culture, I think she also wanted to be taken seriously as an actress and later as a director.
  • To me, Raven-Symone represents a normal body size. She has curves that are proportional to her height, and she’s one of a few thick girls catering to the preteen girl demographic. But every time I watch That’s So Raven, I wonder why her breasts and the rest of her torso are always covered because it makes her look larger than she really is. Then I realized this is a technique to make Raven, 22, look more like a teenager for her roles on that show and in The Cheetah Girls movies. But choosing to cover her curves has led to a malicious debate online: Is Raven fat or all breasts?
