*As Bill Cosby continues to face allegations of sexual abuse and drugging from various women, one of his accusers is opening up about her experience with the embattled comedian.
TheWrap.com references claims Thomas made in February that go back to 1984, when she says her modeling agency instructed her to visit Cosby so he could give her tips on acting. At the time, the funnyman was performing at Harrah’s Hotel and Casino in Reno.
Thomas claims that after she performed a monologue for Cosby, he told her to do a read as a drunk person.
“How are you ever going play an intoxicated person … if you’ve never been drunk?” Cosby said, according to Thomas, who added that things got “foggy” after he gave her a glass of Chablis.
Thomas goes on to claim that when she woke up, she found Cosby in bed with her. From her account, Thomas mentioned that the comedian was naked and “forcing himself in my mouth.”
Now a music teacher, Thomas was among those who posed for a recent cover of New York Magazine, which featured revealing expose on Cosby’s situation that included accounts from 35 women who say the entertainer raped them.
“I stopped being a victim 30 years ago when I made the conscious decision that this was not going to affect my life,” Thomas told the Post while explaining why she came forward to support the other Cosby accusers. “I wanted to support them and say no they’re telling the truth, I know they are.” Thomas continued about coming forward to support the dozens of other Cosby accusers.
The chance to meet the other accusers during the New York Magazine cover shoot proved to be a “comfortable” one for Thomas as she revisited that moment
“Having everyone there and not having to explain anything and not having the ‘why did you wait so long to come forward?’ question… it was comfortable, it was as if we all knew each other for years,” she said, adding when you combine Cosby victims overseas, she believes “there are hundreds of victims.”
In her eyes, Cosby is “bordering on insane.”
