Another day, another new disturbing story about Bill Cosby—and they don't seem to be stopping any time soon.
Just when we thought we'd heard it all in the case against comedian Bill Cosby, this weekend brought with it a flurry of more upsetting news, as an eighth accuser stepped forward and strange stories from the set of "Late Night with David Letterman" came leaking out.
"I admired him, he was an icon," said Leslie, who went on to say that once she reached his hotel room, Cosby conducted somewhat of an impromptu audition.
“If you want to act, show me what you’ve got. Pretend you’re intoxicated,” she remembers him saying.
The comedian even poured Leslie a drink, but she refused it.
"I couldn’t drink it," she said, sharing that she now believes it was laced with something. "I tasted it and put it down. Then he asked me to go into the bathroom and wet my hair. ... I walked back out, and he had removed his clothing and gotten into bed."
Getting seriously creeped out by all that? Just wait.
Just one day after Leslie's story became public, and amid other news that Cosby had canceled an upcoming appearance on "Late Night," another truly bizarre story emerged from the set of comedian David Letterman's late night show. And it is just all sorts of weird.
"He'd include a request, before he arrived, that the young girls, interns and assistants, all had to gather around in the green room backstage and sit down and watch him eat curry," a source told the New York Daily News. "No one would say anything, and he would sit, silently eating, and make us watch and want us to watch."
The anonymous source also added that while everyone hated the creepy ritual, for obvious reasons, they went ahead and obliged because that was "what he wanted."
We've definitely heard of some weird requests in the riders of Hollywood's most elite. But they're usually things like having a particular kind of filtered water in the dressing room or exorbitant amounts of treats waiting for them when they arrive. Demanding that every young female staffer gather to watch a man in his 70s eat curry? We're not really sure why this one was obliged.
As the last few weeks have brought a flood of allegations, it's no secret that Cosby's attempt at a comeback has been seriously thwarted. In fact, some say his career is all but finished. Though he did follow through with a scheduled appearance in Florida on November 21, the disgraced comedian has canceled several other upcoming appearances in addition to the Letterman gig.
