While more than 30 women have now accused comedian Bill Cosby of some form of sexual impropriety, his latest alleged victim claims that in addition to the use of drugs and alcohol as aphrodisiacs, Dr. Huxtable got weird with breakfast food.
The latest accuser, a woman only identified as Patricia, told Buzzfeed News that she was invited by Cosby to a dinner event at his Massachusetts home in 1978. Upon arrival, Patricia found she was the distinguished host’s only guest and claims things only grew more peculiar from there.
After being escorted to a prearranged dinner setting near a fireplace, she told BuzzFeed she felt uneasy, but was comforted by seeing photos of the comedic legend’s family on the wall.
“I felt alarm bells go off because it did feel intimate, but I was trying to be so grown up and mature,” said Patricia.
She claims she accepted a drink Cosby mixed for her, as well as some acting advice.
That’s when Cosby allegedly directed her to cover her face in oatmeal and pretend to be “an elegant queen.”
It was so creepy… He told me to convince him that I could remain regal and queenlike no matter what I looked like. I would leave the room and walk back in, pretending to be a queen with oatmeal on her face, and he would tell me I was doing it wrong and to go back and try again. Then, I started to feel weird from the drink. And then I don’t remember much.
Patricia said she then blacked out and later awoke naked in Cosby’s guest bedroom to find him standing over her in a bathrobe. He allegedly told her she had vomited and passed out, and that he had washed her dress for her.
“I believed him,” Patricia said. “I was deeply ashamed.”
The last meeting between Patricia and Cosby took place in 1980 at a live taping of the Dinah Shore Show, where Patricia says the comedian demanded she style her hair like Queen Noor of Jordan, whom she says he was “obsessed with.”
Afterward, she says he refused to speak with her until she took some pills he said would “relax her.”
She agreed, and woke up the following morning in disarray.
“I was very sick and knew that someone had penetrated me,” she told BuzzFeed. “Finally, I realized what was happening.”
Patricia joins what is now a large group of other women with similar accusations against Cosby, albeit none of those included breakfast grains.
“I thought he really wanted to help me. He was very paternal to me; it wasn’t creepy at all. I trusted him to be a person I could respect,” Patricia said of her time as his entertainment protégé.
Cosby has denied all accusations and has refused to take questions regarding the ever-growing list of claimants, but did poke fun at the allegations at a Canadian comedy club, back in January.
During the event, a female patron stood up, leading Cosby to inquire about her destination. After she informed him she was headed to “get a drink,” she asked if he needed one, to which he replied, “I already have one… You have to be careful about drinking around me.”
