Actress Raven Symone is slamming a disturbing rumor that she was molested by Bill Cosby during her days as a child star on The Cosby Show. This week, former supermodel Janice Dickinson accused the legendary comedian, now 77, of sexually assaulting her back in 1982. Dickinson joins a group of women making similar allegations against Cosby.
On Wednesday, a gossip website spread a rumor that Symone had filed charges against aging actor, accusing him of molesting her as well.
“I was NOT taking advantage of by Mr. Cosby when I was on the Cosby Show!” the Disney star wrote. “I was practically a baby on that show and this is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of! Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!”
“Keep me outta this!” she later tweeted.
Cosby’s lawyer, Marty Singer, issued this statement on Tuesday addressing Janice’s accusations:
“Janice Dickinson’s story accusing Bill Cosby of rape is a lie. There is a glaring contradiction between what she is claiming now for the first time and what she wrote in her own book and what she told the media back in 2002. Ms. Dickinson did an interview with the New York Observer in September 2002 entitled ‘Interview With a Vamp’ completely contradicting her new story about Mr. Cosby. That interview a dozen years ago said “she didn’t want to go to bed with him and he blew her off.” Her publisher Harper Collins can confirm that no attorney representing Mr. Cosby tried to kill the alleged rape story (since there was no such story) or tried to prevent her from saying whatever she wanted about Bill Cosby in her book. The only story she gave 12 years ago to the media and in her autobiography was that she refused to sleep with Mr. Cosby and he blew her off. Documentary proof and Ms. Dickinson’s own words show that her new story about something she now claims happened back in 1982 is a fabricated lie.”
Cosby’s camp is adamant that the rape allegations by multiple women are false.
Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy
Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.
If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage. So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.
Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.
“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”
“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”
To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.
“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”
