Bill Cosby's rape scandal continues to gain steam, as three new alleged victims will reveal details of their encounters with the actor at a news conference with their attorney Gloria Allred on Wednesday.
Cosby has vehemently denied the rape allegations to date; on Tuesday, his longtime co-star Phylicia Rashad broke her silence in eyebrow-raising fashion regarding the ongoing scandal, saying, “Forget these women … what you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy."
Regarding Cosby’s celebrity accusers — one-time models Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson — Rashad dismissively said, “Oh, please!”
The Cosby Show star, speaking with Showbiz 411 Tuesday, made clear she thinks forces are conspiring against the comic, who’s faced accusations from more than 20 women implicating him of crimes ranging from drugging them to sexual assault.
In her media conference, Allred will respond to Rashad's comments, and will also discuss planned protests at Cosby's performances in Canada beginning on Wednesday night.
