Yet Another Woman Accuses Cosby; He Cancels Shows in Boston

Bill-Cosby

*Introducing the latest woman to accuse Bill Cosby of making unwanted sexual advances toward her.

Her name is Helen Gumpel and she’s a former fashion model and actress who appeared on one episode of “The Cosby Show” in 1987, according to the AP.

On Sunday, Gumpel, formerly known as Helen Selby, said she was called to the show’s set for what she thought was another audition shortly after filming the one episode. She said she was brought to Cosby’s dressing room and Cosby had her sit on a couch and handed her a drink. She said Cosby then stood in front of her with his crotch in her face.

“I never thought of myself as a victim because I refused his advances,” Gumpel said. “But my career was a victim.”

A Cosby spokesman did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment. The 77-year-old entertainer faces sexual assault accusations from at least 15 women. He denies the allegations and has never been charged with a crime.

Gumpel, who lives in Connecticut with her husband, made the allegations at a news conference she held at a downtown Boston hotel hours after Cosby canceled back-to-back comedy shows scheduled that evening at the nearby Wilbur Theater. Demonstrators had threatened to protest outside the theater.

  1. Sad, sad, sad… and makes me mad, mad, mad…

    That this man can be TRIED and CONVICTED using social media!

    Without a trial… his livelihood is GONE, GONE, GONE!

    Just wow!

  2. I agree with I said it, and ladyelle…

    This one sounds like she’s pissed because her career stalled… And that’s Cosby’s fault? How? Break it down with some tangible/credible evidence please…

    Did she drink the alleged drink, allegedly “offered” by Cosby? Come on people… And she’s right, she’s not a victim, because as she admits, NOTHING HAPPENED!

    Some of these headlines are really misleading, too.

    For example, everyone knows the Boston/New England states have been pounded by incredible snow storms (at the time of this writing2.8.15). Therefore, is the show being cancelled due to in-climate weather, poor ticket sales… what?

    Clearly there have been protesters at his comedy review in the recent past and he’s taken the stage, so what’s the real deal?

  3. OHhhh No he didin!!! Got my finger up, shakin my head and my Monkey!! Not again!!. IF I ever SEe B Cosby,, I will hit him with my pocketbook like aunt Esther. He wrong, he wrong.!!!
