Bernard said she has the utmost respect for Goldberg, but her claims are no “bull,” a word Whoopi used regarding the treatment she’s received for her support of Cosby.
Bernard appeared in an episode of “The Cosby Show’s” final season, claiming that she was drugged, raped and threatened by Cosby while he mentored her in preparation for her appearance as “the zany and very pregnant Mrs. Minifield.”
“He met with me under the pretense of meeting with producers who would further my career, and he surreptitiously, clandestinely slipped drugs into my blood and he raped me,” she said.
Bernard claimed that she last saw the comedian at the “Cosby Show” studios in 1992, where he told her, “As far as I’m concerned, Bernard, you’re dead. Do you hear me? You’re dead, Bernard. You don’t exist. I never wanna see your face again. Now get the hell out of here!”
“I interpreted that as a death threat and feared for my life,” she said.
