Bill Cosby’s deposition reveals disturbing details of his ‘seduction’ methods

Bill Cosby

The release of a 2005 deposition given by Bill Cosby was a game changer in the ongoing saga. Vulture has kept a running timeline of over 50 women’s allegations, but the deposition contained Cosby’s own admissions of drugging women with Quaaludes.

More of the deposition has come out, and the New York Times published even more damning details. The entire article is disturbing but worth a read. Cosby’s mood during the deposition is described as “largely one of casual indifference.” He discusses many women, but the focus of this part of the deposition is on Andrea Constand. Cosby reveals how he first spotted her at Temple University, and although she was much younger, he found her “good-looking.” He began to invite her for dinners and to his home. Cosby said he only gave Andrea allergy pills (Benadryl), but her lawyers believed differently.

Fair warning: This excerpt is graphic.

Expounding on his philosophy about sex, Mr. Cosby said he tended to refrain from intercourse because he did not want women to fall in love with him. To him, he said, the act of sexual intercourse “is something that I feel the woman will succumb to more of a romance and more of a feeling, not love, but it’s deeper than a playful situation.” As far as he and Ms. Constand went, he said, they were “playing sex, we’re playing, petting, we’re playing.” Was he in love with her? “No.”

Yet the association endured for a few years, until one night at his Pennsylvania home, when Ms. Constand said Mr. Cosby drugged and molested her.

Mr. Cosby said he gave her one and a half tablets of Benadryl to relieve stress, they kissed and had sexual contact. Her lawyer said she believed it was a much more powerful drug.

Some time later, after Ms. Constand had moved home to Canada, Mr. Cosby spoke with Ms. Constand’s mother on the telephone. The mother, he said, was upset about what her daughter said Mr. Cosby had done, describing the experience as “a mother’s nightmare.”

In the deposition, he said he was worried that Ms. Constand’s mother would think of him as a “dirty old man.”

During the call, Mr. Cosby told the deposing lawyers, he wanted Ms. Constand to tell her mother “about the orgasm” so that she would realize it was consensual.

“Tell your mother about the orgasm. Tell your mother how we talked,” he said he remembered thinking.

[From New York Times]

UGH. That is my only coherent reaction to this whole piece. What Andrea Constand endured is terrible enough, but the NYT piece repeatedly refers to Cosby feeling as if he smooth-moved these ladies into bed. Several moments reveal Cosby’s entitled attitude, including “he suggested he was skilled in picking up the nonverbal cues that signal a woman’s consent” and “ his seduction was one of persistence and patience.” Cosby admitted to giving these women Quaaludes, yet he still believes he seduced them!

To Bill Cosby, drugs = consent.

    So.

    Damn.

    Disturbing & Gross.

    FK YOU BILL COSBY.

    That is all.

    • minx says:

      I can’t even look at his smug, ugly face anymore. I have to avert my eyes.

    • PhenomenalWoman says:

      What’s really annoying to me are the reports that law enforcement are NOW dissecting the deposition testimony to see if there’s anything to charge him with. Why didn’t they do that before??? I’m certain they could have gained access to that testimony years ago.

      • Tammy says:

        Law enforcement can’t do something until it is brought to their attention.

      • Jessibes says:

        Look at Kylie Jenner and her boyfriend – obviously statutory rape is happening but the police don’t do anything unless an accusation from the victim or (in case the victim is underage) her parents is made.

        Perhaps the laws are different in my country because even a rumour like this would be investigated. This also has its drawbacks because there are victims of human trafficking or loverboys, who do not want to see their assailent being prosecuted. Its very complicated.

        Ps not sure assailant is the right word… Brain not working.

      • PhenomenalWoman says:

        Tammy – it was brought to their attention several times and they hid behind the statute of limitations. Seems to me like they were star-struck like many of his supporters. They should have conducted a proper investigation. This deposition testimony has been out there for ten years. Odds are that Cosby was drugging and raping people until recently. Although I doubt he’s doing it now as a senior citizen, ten years ago, there might have been victims raped within the SOL that they could have spoken to.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        Please don’t blame the police. The police don’t bring the charges, the prosecutor’s office files charges. The police just go arrest him. I know it is a small point, but it always bothers me…

      • emmmeddjjjjfh says:

        What’s annoying to me is the media now calling these rapes “affairs” and that he was a “womanizer”. No, you’re a serial rapist.

    • LeAnn Stinks says:

      NGBoston, couldn’t have said it better myself.

      Cosby is a class A sociopath, narcissist and a predator. He should be locked up, and should have been, years ago.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      He’s a predatory monster.

  2. Falula says:

    Filthy, horrific, terrifying. There aren’t words left for this man that really do this situation any justice.

    • smith says:

      Young girl: “Good morning, welcome to Starbucks.”

      Cosby mind: “She wants me.”

      What kind of crazy is this? Also as the NYT article describes, it’s his “casual indifference” that really gets to you. If you LISTEN to the transcripts his tone is like HE’S slightly drugged or something, it’s beyond casual …it’s matter-of-fact …and chilling.

      Side note – Janice D. has been making the media rounds of course and the woman can barely put a sentence together. I just dislike her so much. It’s like every emotion is purposely set for the lawsuit and eventual payout. I know I have to separate Janice the victim from Janice the attention – (I can’t use wh*re in this context) – seeking idiot. I simply cannot stand her on any level.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        @smith…I’m sure BC thought these women were thrilled to have sex with him, even though he had to drug them first. He is an egomaniac….and just a plain old maniac!

  3. Jenns says:

    Can’t wait to see how Whoopi Goldberg will defend this one!

    • Don't kill me I'm French says:

      Whoopi stopped to defend him when she finally understood why his accusers don’t sue him and why he never won’t go to jail

      • Sarah says:

        No. Whoopie stopped defending him when outraged viewers started to demand that The View fire her. Suddenly she “didn’t understand” the issue (that she has voice her opinion about for well over a year without apparently trying to ‘understand’ or have anyone correct her).

      • minx says:

        Sarah, yes. I think the producers forced her into a come-to-Jesus meeting and arranged that fake segment with Dan Abrams so she could suddenly be “enlightened.”
        I wonder what she’ll say to all this.

      • mytbean says:

        I’m wondering if she’ll say anything as she already made her thoughts known. Whether people want to acknowledge that, well, of course that’s another story.

      • FLORC says:

        I think Whoopi is putting as much distance as possible in this. And her statements came after her show’s producers and the networked stepped in and told her to stop spouting ignorant statements defnding a monster.

        To this.. the rope is getting tighter.

  4. Loopy says:

    Oh what a way to ruin your legacy.

    • AcidRock says:

      Like I read elsewhere, I’m just glad he and his horrid wife have lived long enough to see the entire empire come crumbling down. Now there’s no further need for either of them to stick around…

  5. MrsBPitt says:

    This guy is truly a psychopath, and a serial rapist…if it hadn’t been for his fame and wealth, he would have been in jail years ago…

  6. BNA FN says:

    First of all, benedryl does not make you unconscious or unable to known what’s going on around you. BC is a lying, dirty sick scumbag, that’s all I have to say about this subhuman.

    • whatwhatnot says:

      I can’t take Benadryl because it knocks me out. And I sleep for hours.

    • Goats on the Roof says:

      I once took two Benadryl and fell asleep right in the damn bathtub. Out cold. It took my husband nearly beating the door down to wake me up. So it *could* have been Benadryl he was giving some of these women, but that doesn’t make his actions any less disgusting. Giving a woman any type of sedative or mood-altering medication with the sole purpose of making her more pliable is criminal. Doesn’t matter if that med is OTC or an old stash of ludes.

    • BNA FN says:

      I took benedryl several times so I can get a little sleep, and the most I slept was 1/2 hour max, every time.
      @GOTR, you are so right, giving another person any kind of sedative in order to get them sedated in order to take advantage of them is still a crime. BC is really a monster and now the dirty laundry is out there for the world to see.

      • Kiddo says:

        I take antihistamines and am OUT, like a light, for the night. I was prescribed benzos for insomnia for a short period of time, in the past. The prescription lasted forever because at the very lowest dose, I was comatose. I had to take a mere quarter to half of a pill (and it was TINY) to even to be able to wake up and not be a zombie the next day. It depends on metabolism and weight, amongst other things, with any drug.

      • Original T.C. says:

        +2000
        I take Benadryl when I’m desperate for sleep. It’s my last alternative because it does completely knock me out and leaves me fuzzy brained for half the next day. If someone makes me take Benadryl before sex, the only purpose that serves is for him to have one way fun with a knocked out body with me waking up and confused as to why I am so sore in my private parts. Let’s call it what it is: Cosby is a delusional psychopath with a fetish for near necrophilia. And women don’t need his help going to the corner store to buy Benadryl, so moronic. Women throwing themselves at hot famous men like Tiger Woods didn’t need sedatives. They did it fully awake with dual pleasure.

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        Your mileage may vary:

        For some of us, Benadryl is a powerful sedative. I can’t take it any more because it knocks me out for hours, and leaves me in a deep brain fog for hours after that.

    • iseepinkelefants says:

      I guess Benadryl has different effects on everyone because when I take it it does nothing. But then again most sleeping pills and caffeine pills don’t do anything for me. Also why I don’t drink coffee.

      Anyway did he ever think maybe the “consensual” part was these women were too high to fight back? I don’t know about anyone else but when I’m loopy on medication I say and agree with anything/anyone to make you go away and leave me alone. A yes under distress ain’t consensual.

      • mememe says:

        Yeah I can’t take benedryl either. It knocks me out. Last time I took a dose, a friend came to check on me to make sure I was still breathing. I passed out and didn’t even move for 12 hrs.

    • Alex says:

      I don’t take Benadryl for the exact reason that it DOES knock me out. Only when I need to sleep without waking up uncomfortable because I’m ill do I ever take it. My mom is the same way. So if someone gave it to me I would be incompacitated

    • Erinn says:

      It’s one of those things that can cause excitability or drowsiness I believe, depending on the person.

      Most of the time it will knock me out. Or at the very least make me pretty drowsy. Other times, it barely does a thing. It’s strange.

    • Lucrezia says:

      Just FYI … Benadryl is a completely different product depending on what country you’re in. So if you’re in Australia or the UK, your Benadryl isn’t what the Americans are talking about.

      (That might clear up a little of the confusion. I was totally confused when this detail first came out, since Benadryl here in Oz it’s a non-sedating liquid cough syrup, not a sedative tablet.)

    • Dr.Funkenstein says:

      Benadryl contains the same active ingredient as many OTC sleep aids (Diphenydramine). It is very effective in inducing sleep in some people, though others may not feel those effects. A large dose as he’s describing here could certainly put someone to sleep. If you combined that with alcohol, there’s no question that you’d be in a groggy, dazed state at best. Again, all of this assumes that you are susceptible to that effect.

    • Blackcat says:

      When I was in high school, around 17 or 18 y/o, my boyfriend’s mother gave me a sudafed, which is akin to Benadryl, for a sinus headache. It knocked me out at least for an 1- 1 1/2 hours. The last thing I remember was putting my head in my boyfriend’s lap. That was years ago, but I still remember waking up and being amazed I’d slept so deeply and for so long.

      At that time, I was not used to taking any medicine and had not developed any tolerance, which is why I responded the way I did.
      I believe Cosby could have sedated women with 1-1 1/2 Benedryl. Effects would be magnified if taken with alcohol.
      Frankly, it doesn’t matter to me what he gave them, his intent was to knock the woman out and rape her.

      • Trashaddict says:

        Blackcat, I hate to tell you, but pseudoephedrine is a stimulant. They started limiting access to it because people use it to make methamphetamine! Maybe you are one of those rare individuals who have a paradoxical reaction to stimulants or you were just wiped out from the sinus headache! But Sudafed (at least the original kind) is definitely NOT a sedative.

    • noway says:

      Okay, I admit I didn’t read the deposition, and I really don’t want to because it makes me ill, but did he admit giving her benadryl without her knowledge? Not that it matters just curious about what he admitted to.

    • mytbean says:

      Benedryl to make a person “relax”… and do things they would not normally do nor consent too. It’s odd that Cosby doesn’t either see how that information plays against him and/or actually believes that it is in his defense. He presents it so matter-of-fact, like it’s just what guys do when they’re attracted to a woman and what women agree too when they’re into it.

      So bizarre and disturbing. And, *shudder* Did this man have a role model for this sort of MO?

    • sa says:

      I take Benedryl as a sleeping pill when I can’t fall asleep. One will put me to sleep if I’m already a little tired, two will knock me out no matter the circumstances. I just don’t have the strength or energy to keep my eyes open after 2 Benedryl.

      I get that its not the same for everyone, but it’s a little silly for those not knocked out by Benedryl to assume that because they’re not others aren’t either.

  7. Kiddo says:

    Ick, that photo with spread legs and his drooping testicles on display adds to the horror.

    • Loopy says:

      Oh my days , I thought I was the only one who noticed the drooping testicles, I wonder if he is still drugging women or he is laying low for a while. I doubt unless you have been living under a rock you would put yourself in a vulnerable state around him,

    • Snazzy says:

      Oh god I didn’t notice that so had to go back up and see. Now I can’t unsee …

      • I Choose Me says:

        Ha ha. I’m wondering if it’s too early for cocktails. I need SOMETHING to wipe that image from my mind.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      I did not need to see this predator’s low hanging, rotten fruit.

    • GingerCrunch says:

      I was optimistic that this post wasn’t using that pic, but NOPE! I loathe it, but think it’s appropriate for who he really is. Vomit.

    • Shambles says:

      I… You just… Why did you have to… Blechhhh. He really, truly thinks that he’s just a smooth operater who has the right moves to get all the ladies. Sociopath. No question.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Good lawd yes! Can we start a petition to ask our CB ladies not to use that picture. I haven’t had breakfast and this is putting me right off lunch.

    • Dr.Funkenstein says:

      GAH! It’s going to be seared into my retinas all day thanks to that comment. :)

    • lem says:

      Yea sadly that’s all I see in that picture anymore. CB PLEASE STOP USING THAT PICTURE OF COSBY.

    • Blackcat says:

      That’s the first thing I always notice when this photo rolls out. It’s disgusting.

    • noway says:

      Thank Kiddo since this creep can’t seem to go away, and the 80′s pictures with him and that goofy smile creeps me out, and now I have the falling testicle image in my mind too. Ick is right!!!!

      Can we just stop using Cosby pictures all together and just put up a skull and crossbones, like they have on cigarette packages. Well he is dangerous to your health, mind, body, etc.

    • MC2 says:

      Damn you Kiddo! My eyes are burning!!!

  8. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    The article was truly disturbing. Another reason he gave for believing the sex was consensual was that she didn’t yell at him afterwards or leave in a huff. I’m sure she was still drugged, for one thing, and in shock at what had happened. And since when do you take allergy medicine to relax? He doesn’t think he did anything wrong. He is disgusting beyond words.

    Why do you think he admitted all this? Do you think there was some kind of proof that he couldn’t deny? Or that, since he doesn’t think he did anything wrong, he thought if he explained it, everyone would see that he was innocent of any wrongdoing? That’s a piece of the puzzle I can’t figure out, but I lean towards the latter.

    • Snazzy says:

      I’m thinking he’s completely entitled, and he honestly thinks he did nothing wrong.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      I agree with Snazzy – he doesn’t think his actions are wrong. He thinks he’s the one being wronged.

    • Insomniac says:

      It really sounds to me as if he doesn’t think he did anything wrong.

    • BNA FN says:

      GNAT, I believe he settle because he knew the woman was going to file charges so to keep everything quiet he settled. Remember there were about another dozen women was there to support Constance that he had taken advantage of them. The thing I don’t understand is, there were several scandal about BC about a decade ago. Some how they all went away. I also remember one of the man working backstage gave a story to some news publication that BC had enveloped stuffed with money and every month he had to go all around the city paying lots of women off and also paying rents and northlands for dozens of women. That was out there but no one picked up on the story or BC paid the tabs to squash the stories.

    • Pinky says:

      That’s s dangerous game to be playing: determining whether something is consensual AFTER the fact!

    • Shambles says:

      GNAT, I really think it’s because he thinks he did nothing wrong. Like I said above, he truly thinks he’s just a Don Juan who knows all the right moves to get a woman into bed. I’m sure, in his mind, he sees himself like Hugh Hefner. It would be pathetically comical if he wasn’t a serial rapist. As it is, it’s just nauseating. His soul is lost and he’s far beyond help at this point.

      OT: now I need to see if Don Juan De Marco is still on HBO Go, because I just reminded myself of the film and seeing Johnny Depp in a ruffled shirt would ease my disgust at this situation.

    • Dr.Funkenstein says:

      Definitely agree on the antisocial personality disorder here, certainly NPD as well. The fact that he used Benadryl is actually quite telling, because it means he knew what dipenhyrdamine would do and could always claim (after the fact) that he had simply been trying to help her with her complaints of allergy symptoms or something along those lines. It points to culpability and intent, because he is trying to obfuscate what he’s actually doing. Also, in true narcissistic fashion, he victimizes himself in the scenario by claiming to have only tried to help her “relax,” and that she then engaged in these acts as an entirely unrelated event. He was then victimized by her claims of his sexual misconduct. All very carefully, cleverly thought out in a criminal way, in my mind.

    • noway says:

      GNAT the frightening part of all this is maybe in his world, Hollywood entitled, this is the norm. I just get the feeling that the “quiet” sedation of women for rape in Hollywood was at one point more common than we would like to think. This could also partly explain why of the 50+ women none felt comfortable enough to go after him in the legal time frame until 2005. I know our system isn’t good to rape victims, but add that with the fact it was common in Hollywood the victims probably felt defeated before they began.

  9. capepopsie says:

    I used to love his smile.
    Now it makes me feel uncomfortable. . .

    • Naddie says:

      Me too, his smile is what it took for me to like him right on. How can he be so despicable…

  10. DanaG says:

    He is just disgusting and so guilty. No excuses for it if your that smooth you don’t need to ply the woman with drugs. He and his wife are both delusional…..

  11. marrria says:

    Well tough shit “MR.” Cosby you ARE a dirty old man. A dangerous and disgusting one to boot.

  12. Meowsy says:

    “Mr. Cosby said he tended to refrain from intercourse because he did not want women to fall in love with him.”

    What?? Ugh. Creepy to the max.

    • BNA FN says:

      BC is a lier, I bet my last dollar he had intercourse with most of the women, that’s why he sedated them so some of them will have no memory of being raped. Heavens only know the freaky things he must have done to some of those young women.

    • Kiddo says:

      Yeah, completely narcissistic over-inflated ego BS. All these women were going to fall in love with Cosby during their drug induced haze and unconsciousness.

    • I Choose Me says:

      Yeah that was a WTF moment for me as well. I think he really believes this, that he is some kind of smooth operator. The man is a sociopath.

    • stinky says:

      Yes – that comment stuck out to me & bells went off – it sounded like it was his actual reason for drugging his victims – because otherwise ‘they fall in love w/ him’.

  13. manda says:

    This just upsets me so much. I loved the cosby show and picture pages and fat albert back in the day. Bill Cosby Himself (the stand up special from the 80′s) was hilarious, and I find myself still quoting it to this day (I’m in my late 30′s). He always seemed so reasonable. He doesn’t care about anybody. I feel so betrayed

    • Melody says:

      I feel the same way Manda. I was such a fan of his work. Though a few years back I worked with a group of people who met him at a restaurant while in Philadelphia on a business trip, and they all said he came off as a really mean man (actually I think they used the word a**hole to describe him). I had a hard time reconciling their report to the persona I had known and admired, but by the time I heard of the rape accusations, I was less shocked than many because I had been told he was far from Dr. Huxtable IRL.

    • Jessibes says:

      Loved the Cosby show too. Glad is has been taken of the air now.

    • Trashaddict says:

      This. So damn disappointing. Assholes whose work I can no longer watch: Roman Polanski. Woody Allen. Bill Cosby. The list just keeps growing.

  14. Kirsten says:

    Orgasms do not equal consent! Rape victims have orgasms because it is their bodies response to physical stimuli. However, it does not mean that they wanted what was happening to them. Bill Cosby is scum.

  15. NUTBALLS says:

    Dear Santa,

    I know it’s a little early, but all I want for Christmas is to never hear the names Cosby, Dugger, Kardashian, Palin or Trump again.

    Yours truly,

  16. ysodum says:

    Persistence and patience is not a seduction technique, it’s harassment and assault.

  17. Alex says:

    So disgusting on many many levels. I read some stories over the weekend and I wanted to gag. Ugh

  18. aquarius64 says:

    Cosby claimed he never had “intercourse” with these women. How do you explain Autumn Jackson, the woman who claimed to be Cosby’s outside child and blackmailed him on that? Cosby paid her off by buying a car and paying for her tuition so she won’t blab to the media about his affair with her mother. The checks stop coming when she dropped out of school, and that’s when the blackmail began. Autumn got 2 yrs, 2 mos. in the federal pen for her efforts. I’m surprised the media hasn’t done a follow up interview with her.

    For a 20-year affair both parties have to be conscious as some point, but using money for tuition to buy silence adds to the ick factor.

    • FingerBinger says:

      He’s not saying he never had sex with these women. He did admit to having a “rendezvous” with Autumn’s mother.

    • stinky says:

      wait a minute – youre saying he had his own kid put in prison?
      I COMPLETELY MISSED THAT LIL’ TIDBIT!

      • Michelle says:

        I don’t think she was actually his bio daughter but her mother did have a long term affair with him. It would be interesting to hear what she has to say now.

  19. kri says:

    Classic predator doublespeak. Ugh, I want to punch him and then barf all over all him. So insane that he had free reign for decades. NBC and Temple are complicit, along with the revolting Camille. Anyone who had an idea he was doing this needs to be exposed as well. I shudder to think about this stuff, cause you know it goes on w/ kids in this industry as well as young girls/women. I don’t know that I would allow my kid out of my sight for a second if he or she was a child actor.

  20. Bill Cosby is a nasty pervert, he needs to be investigated as there is probably a filthy trail behind him of who knows what? Let’s start with his mother and father.

  21. Matador says:

    Bill, how does one read non-verbal cues from a woman you’ve drugged into unconsciousness? OH. Never mind.

    What a sick individual. It’s unfortunate that as far as prosecution goes, most of this is too little, too late for the victims. At least he is still alive to suffer the personal and professional disgrace firsthand, unlike Jimmy Savile.

    Hopefully the victims – all of them, those whose names we know, those who may never come forward and those who may no longer be with us – will find peace of mind in knowing that they were not alone, that they did nothing wrong and that Cosby’s evilness was revealed to the world.

    • minx says:

      Yes, I hope the release of this deposition allows more of them to come forward. There have to be hundreds of women.

  22. Mrs. Darcy says:

    There’s just no rationalizing it, it makes no sense, which is why every word out of his mouth is deranged, because he’s a serial rapist and sociopath. He preyed on mostly younger, vulnerable women and used his paternal image to groom them, all the while plotting how best to degrade them and drug them. He’s trying to make it sound somehow remotely like a normal behaviour here because he is that far gone – by this deposition he’d gotten away with being a serial rapist for what, 40, 50 years? He thinks he is untouchable. It sounds horrible but our best hope of seeing justice done is someone coming forward now where the statute of limitations hasn’t run out? I don’t know why this stuff has only just now been leaked, I can only hope it leads somewhere that includes him being behind bars and having to pay out to all of his victims.

    • Michelle says:

      There is an ongoing case right now in CA regarding an incident at the Playboy mansion. The woman’s attorney had some of the basic facts mixed up (his fault) so it got stalled for awhile. The police are still investigating.

  23. Dr.Funkenstein says:

    Wow. I wonder if this is enough for the defenders? Probably not, but wow.

      From what I’ve seen on other sites (People, EW): Nope. It’s sickening the lengths people will go to in order to keep blaming the victims. “You can’t rape a s***” was one such sentiment I encountered. The moderation on those sites is hideous, too. Articles like that should have a mod specifically assigned to weed out gross and offensive content.

      Thankfully there are some havens from those types, including Celebitchy.

    He did not have intercourse because he did not want them falling in love with him? But he drugged them because they were unwilling? Is that right? This is so sinister, I can’t even wrap my brain around it. I have a horrible feeling that some of his victims – the less famous ones – may have disappeared or overdosed under his “care.”

  25. word says:

    I wonder how his victims felt all these years with everyone praising Bill Cosby for being a saint and he was even honored by the President with an award. I mean, to know he is truly a monster while the whole world was buying into his “I’m an Angel” act. How did those victims manage? Karma is real and it finally came for Bill Cosby.

    Know what I read recently?

    The UK does not have a statute of limitations on sex crimes. It can be done- so lobby hard US citizens!
    this is a tragic situation.

    but but I remember his stand up and his attitude towards drugs was that he didn’t like drugs or DO drugs. He’s ruined.

    • Tammy says:

      He doesn’t like or use any drugs on himself. I guess it’s different when he’s spiking a coffee for his “seduction” act.

    “I dont want your mother to think Im a dirty old man…so brag about the orgasm I gave you.”

    WTF?!?!

    • Matador says:

      It’s an old trope that used to be used to shame rape victims into believing they were complicit in their rapes – that an orgasm (and/or arousal) = consent. It was a way for Cosby to turn the screws psychologically on Constand, by making her think she wanted it, enjoyed it, and consented to it – and that her mother would understand that thinking as well.

      He’s a piece of garbage.

      • Tammy says:

        Quite a few serial sex offenders have been know to say that when accused of abuse: but, but they had an orgasm! Psychiatrists refuted this idea awhile ago but I suppose one could argue that BC still believes that he did not abuse because she had an orgasm.

        I don’t buy his “innocent” act or that he believes he did not do anything wrong. His deposition is typical of responses that come from a sociopath. He knows, he just doesn’t care.

    Benadryl for stress? I’m a medical professional, and that’s the first time I’ve ever heard that.

    Thank you, Dr. Huxtable, for the education.

      Jensies
      Considering anxiety can be a side effect to some taking benadryl it makes no sense.

    I’ve been googling around for information on his son’s “random” murder. Does anyone have any links?

    • FLORC says:

      http://lubbockonline.com/news/011797/bill.htm

      To sum he was changing a flat tire and the rest is pieced together, but unknown. The shooting was thought to be the result of a driveby and wrong identity. After that People made note Cosby was withdrawn. He was nearly catatonic.. Not leaving his room, speaking, moving, eating for days at 1 point. When he did move he would wear the same sweats for days, not bath, and seemed in a daze.
      I felt for him in his grief.
      He ruined dozens of lives though. Sympathy he lost his son. Disgust he destroyed the lives of many women.

      • carol says:

        He was never really the same after his son died. He became grumpier and not so jovial. I missed the old fatherly Cosby before learning about his rapist tendencies. Now he just makes barf.

  31. Jessibes says:

    What a vile excuse for a human being.

  32. JenniferJustice says:

    And this is the same depo re the qualudes that we all know his wife was present for. So, not only did she “know what she was getting” when she married him, but she knew in 2005 at the deposition the details and methods he used to drug and rape women. She is a vile excuse for a human being too.

    And, please, no launching into the times she came from or how she must be abused or opressed. No, just greedy and a fellow sociopath along with her husband who think they can do whatever they want, because Hey, they’re the Cosby’s. I hope she rots in Hell with her disgusting creep of a husband.

    Cosby, you are not a lady’s man. You aren’t any kind of smooth operator. If you drug and rape unconscious or semi-conscious women to have sex with them, they don’t want you and you’re simply a rapist who takes what he wants when he can’t get it any other way. As for the statement re avoiding intercouse lest they fall in love with you….pffft…AS IF. Isn’t that why you had to rape them in the first place? Because they weren’t initerested in you that way? Can’t wait for you to meet your maker and give Him all these excuses. We’re not suppose to judge what happens to your soul, but something tells me He isn’t buying any of your BS anymore than we are.

  33. FLORC says:

    I feel for the victims. They’ve ripped open old wounds. They’ve put themselves in a public forum calling out a then very beloved and respected man as a monster. They’ve given very personal details. They’ve been attacked.
    And they were not able to bring Cosby to court and get him labeled a SO. Or to even file charges.

    Best case scenerio is he’s publicly disgraced and becomes the man that committed horrible acts. Not the goofy dad on tv. That his legacy is tarnished. And that these women can find some validation after so much time and likely some horrible emotional/physical stress.

    I didn’t read the article. I’m sure it was Cosby being a sick f.
    I’m just glad this is all unfolding and still being discussed.

  34. Nemesis says:

    Bill Cosby, you broke my heart…

  35. sa says:

    I made the mistake of reading some of the comments on the NYT article yesterday. It completely destroyed my faith in humanity. The first comment was about how the women were equally to blame and how it’s somehow insulting to women to not hold the women accountable.

    I don’t know why I’m still surprised by comments like that, but I was legitimately stunned to read that.

    Bill Cosby was the commencement speaker at my college graduation and I used to think how great that was.

  36. wow says:

    He is so disgusting to me now! Pure scum. A women like his wife who turn a blind eye and make excuses for their sicko husbands are sickening to.

    For him to have got away with this for so long is just ridiculous!!!! Now I wonder if this is the reason why Lisa Bonet had such a problem with him. And to think he was so disappointed in her for making that movie back then, I forget the name. It’s funny how men like Cosby and that molester Dad from 7th Heaven got all righteous and holier than thou when lead characters on their shows (Lisa Bonet and Jessica Biel) wanted to branch out from playing their good girl characters to more sensual grown-up type characters. Yet in real life, it was those very two men leading real life double lives. SMH!

    Why were quaaludes so popular in the 70s? They sound like ruffies to me. Why not just smoke a doobie?
