Two more women say Bill Cosby drugged and abused them in the 80s

Bill Cosby just settled a case out of court with a woman who claimed he drugged and raped her two years ago. Probably the main reason he settled the case was the fact that there were 13 women willing to testify in court that Cosby had done the exact same thing to them! Two of the women lined up to testify are telling their story to People Magazine. The two former models say that they had beverages while hanging out with Cosby in the 80s and that they woke up hours later feeling sick and with their clothes off. Both of them ended up having relationships with him, which doesn’t mean that their stories aren’t true, just that they were impressionable and rather stupid to keep seeing Cosby afterwards. One of them was just 18 at the time.

The allegations came out after Cosby settled out of court last month a civil lawsuit charging him with sexual assault and drugging a woman in Philadelphia in 2004.

The trial had 13 witnesses lined up, listed as “Jane Does,” who stood ready to testify of similar experiences with the comic.

Barbara Bowman and Beth Ferrier were two of the 13, and both were interviewed and pictured in the People story. The two were represented by JF Images when they were introduced to Cosby in the ’80s. (Neither woman had come forward before, and they do not stand to profit from the allegations as the statute of limitations has expired, according to People.)

Bowman, who is married and now lives in a Phoenix suburb, was 18 when she says Farrell arranged to have her meet Cosby at a Denver nightclub, Turn of the Century. People magazine says Farrell then arranged for Bowman to move to New York, where her professional relationship with Cosby continued. Bowman says that in a Reno hotel in 1986, “(Cosby) took my hand and his hand over it, and he masturbated with his hand over my hand.”

She goes on to say that soon she was in a New York townhouse with Cosby, who gave her a glass of red wine. “The next thing I know,” she is quoted, “I’m sick and nauseous and I’m delusional and I’m limp and … I can’t think straight. … And I just came to, and I’m wearing a (men’s) T-shirt that wasn’t mine, and he was in a white robe.”

Ferrier, a single mom who still lives in Denver, says she was introduced to Cosby by Farrell in the mid-’80s. She tells People that Cosby was her mentor, a “father figure” to her, when she drank some cappuccino in his Denver dressing room and blacked out.

“I woke up in my car in the parking lot with my clothes all a mess,” she tells People. “I was definitely drugged. All I had to drink was coffee, and the room was spinning. Then I wake up with my clothes a mess and my bra unhooked. I wondered, I still wonder, ‘What did he do with me? Why was my bra unhooked? What happened?”‘

Ferrier went on to have an “on-and-off” consensual affair with Cosby for several years.

Bill Cosby is pretty much on my shit list after he tried to sue for reposting a parody cartoon of him as a wacky clone called “House of Cosbys.” He also drew heat after blaming African-Americans for their plight post-Katrina.

If this shit is true he needs to do some jail time. Unfortunately the statute of limitations is up, so that means that these women can’t bring up their own charges or profit from their stories. He’ll be 70 next year, so it’s surprising that he was pulling this same stunt and was caught at it just two years ago. He’s been married to Camille Cosby since 1964 and they have five children together.
