A number of Bill Cosby‘s accusers appeared on “Dr. Phil” on Thursday’s episode of the syndicated talk show, with one accuser providing a graphic account of her alleged encounter with Cosby.
The accuser, identified as Linda, told host Phil McGraw that she met Cosby on a movie set.
“It was a job interview,” Linda told McGraw.
She then launched into a detailed description of the alleged assault.
“His hand came around to the back of my head and, you know, as I looked up, he was exposing his genitals. He was right in my face,” Linda recalled.
“He had my hair; I don’t want to get graphic, but you know when you’re shocked you go, ‘Oh,’ you open your mouth a little bit, and that was my mistake,” Linda said. “And then he just made this horrible mess all over me.”
Afterward, Linda said, Cosby told the aspiring actress that he had “blessed” her.
“The hardest part was, he gloated over my humiliation. And he reached into his pocket, he had a big wad of Kleenex, and he started cleaning me up; he was dabbing at me,” Linda recalled. “By this time I’ve closed my eyes, because I really think I’m going to faint. And he said, ‘I’ve blessed you now, you know; you’ve been blessed.’
“And I remember thinking, ‘He must be crazy.'”
The accusers on the “Dr. Phil” stage also included former model Beverly Johnson, who recounted her tale of allegedly being drugged by Cosby with a spiked cappuccino.
Since late last year, dozens of women have come forward to accuse Cosby of violating them, often claiming that he drugged them beforehand.
Cosby’s attorneys have denied the allegations against the comedian. Nonetheless, the accusations have led to a series of setbacks for Cosby, including legal action and the shelving of a comedy that NBC was developing for him.
