New Accusers: Cosby Show Actress And Writer
An actress on the show and a show writer have now come forward.
One of the women, Lili Bernard, is an actress who played Mrs. Minnifield during the last season of The Cosby Show. The other, Sammie Mays, says Cosby attacked her at a TV conference.
Bernard says Cosby drugged and raped her during what was supposed to be a “mentoring” session before filming scenes for the show…
Bernard says she did not come forward before because the last time she saw him at the studio in 1992, he allegedly told her, “As far as I’m concerned, Bernard, you’re dead. Do you hear me? You’re dead, Bernard. You don’t exist, I never wanna see your face again. Now get the hell out of here!”
Mays says Cosby drugged her at the National Association of Television Program Executives conference in New Orleans in the mid-1980s. She was a writer covering the event who agreed to an interview in Cosby’s hotel room.
