As reported, the latest woman to come forward is publicist/journalist Joan Tarshis, who claimed Cosby sexually assaulted her on two occasions 45 years ago.

Cosby, who had implied he would serve as her mentor, asked Tarshis to work on comedy with him in the Universal Studios bungalow he retreated to while filming The Bill Cosby Show.

On one occasion, Tarshis said, Cosby prepared for her an alcoholic beverage combining a Bloody Mary with beer and “the next thing I remember was coming to on his couch while being undressed.” Tarshis said, in graphic detail, how she told Cosby she “had an infection … but he just found another orifice to use.”

She said she “was sickened by what was happening to me and shocked that this man I had idolized was now raping me,” adding, “Of course I told no one.”
