Former Cosby Cast Mate Steps Forward As Alleged Victim
A former Picture Page cast member has become the latest woman to make sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby, claiming he drugged her and sexually assaulted her when she was a 15-year-old aspiring actress.
Mother-of-three Renita Chaney Hill, who appeared alongside the comedian in the educational program, said the pair had relationship for four years during the 1980s while he paid her college tuition.
The 47-year-old from Pittsburgh said she would be flown to different cities around the country and when they stayed in hotels, he would insist she had a drink, even though she was still in high school.
She told KDKA she believed that is when he drugged her as she did not remember anything until she woke up the next morning.
‘He would fly me to a number of cities. He would be busy during the day, then I’d come to his hotel room at night,’ she added.
‘One time, I remember just before I passed out, I remember him kissing and touching me and I remember the taste of his cigar on his breath, and I didn’t like it. I remember another time when I woke up in my bed the next day and he was leaving, he mentioned you should probably lose a little weight. I thought that odd, how would he know that.’
When she turned 19, she cut off all ties with Cosby, even though he was paying her way through school.
Her parents seemed happy with her continuing what seemed like a mentoring relationship, but Hill had enough, and even gave up her dream of becoming an actress.
Hill claims her husband and three daughters are aware of what happened.
She told the station she has no apologies for waiting 30 years to tell the story and said she decided to come forward when Cosby’s lawyers criticized other alleged victims.
Hill added: ‘No one wants to be associated with something like this. But the bottom line for me is that no one has the right to violate someone else, no matter who they are. I don’t care how big they are or how the community sees them, it’s not right.’
Well she’s the first co-star we’ve heard step forward…can we expect any stories from any castmates on his most famous show???
