The count has been rising every day as women have come forward with allegations of sexual abuse and misconduct at the hands of television and comic icon, Bill Cosby.
Over the weekend, fa ormer Another World actress, Michelle Hurd, who has also has had major roles on primetime’s Law & Order: SVU, Gossip Girl, and 90210 among others, was the next to speak out via her facebook page of inappropriate behavior she says she encountered years ago via Cosby.
The posting has now been an item throughout mainstream media From Yahoo, The Wrap, to Perez Hilton and more, many have ran the item. Hurd had played the role of Assistant D.A. Dana Cramer on the NBC soap opera on and off again between 1991 and 1997.
In her post Hurd related the following: “LOOK, I wasn’t going to say anything, but I can’t believe some of the things I’ve been reading, SO here is MY personal experience: I did stand-in work on The Cosby show back in the day and YES, Bill Cosby was VERY inappropriate with me. It started innocently, lunch in his dressing room, daily, then onto weird acting exercises were he would move his hands up and down my body, (can’t believe I fell for that) I was instructed to NEVER tell anyone what we did together, (he said other actors would become jealous) and then fortunately, I dodged the ultimate bullet with him when he asked me to come to his house, take a shower so we could blow dry my hair and see what it looked like straightened. At that point my own red flags went off and I told him, “No, I’ll just come to work tomorrow with my hair straightened”. I then started to take notice and found another actress, a stand-in as well, and we started talking….. A LOT …. turns out he was doing the same thing to her, almost by the numbers, BUT, she did go to his house and because I will not name her, and it is her story to tell, all I’ll say is she awoke, after being drugged, vomited, and then Cosby told her there’s a cab waiting for you outside. I have ABSOLUTELY no reason to lie or make up this up! Anyone that knows me, knows that! Now you have a first hand account of my experience with Mr. Cosby.”
So many women are coming forward with allegations against Cosby. What do you think of this hot button situation? Comment below! And as for Hurd, here is a clip from her time on Another World!
