Another woman has come forward in the Bill Cosby sex abuse scandal, claiming that the comedian drugged and possibly took advantage of her nearly 46 years ago. In an op-ed posted by The Huffington Post, former Hollywood executive Cindra Ladd, recounted a night she had with Cosby back in the late 60’s.
“In 1969 I met Bill Cosby while working in New York for the late film producer Ray Stark. I was a 21-year-old single woman in the world’s most exciting city. He was a 32-year-old internationally known comedian and television star, one of the most likeable and popular entertainers in the business. He asked for my number and I gave it to him.”
“We began hanging out, took in a movie, watched television and ate pizza and hot dogs in my apartment with my roommate. He was married to his current wife and he acted like a perfect gentleman who didn’t come on to either of us, which, I have to admit, made me wonder what his objective was.”
“One night we were going out to a movie. We agreed to meet at an apartment that he said belonged to a friend of his. I had a terrible headache but didn’t want to cancel the evening. He told me he had a miracle cure his doctor had given him that would get rid of the headache. He went into another room and came back with a capsule. I asked a couple of times what it was. Each time he reassured me, asking, “Don’t you trust me?” Of course I did. This was Bill Cosby.”
Cindra, who is also the wife of Oscar-winning producer Alan Ladd Jr, explained that for more than 45 years, the has had a hard time recalling exactly what happened that evening. But she does remember this:
“What I do recall, vividly and clearly, is waking up the next morning nude in the bed of his friend’s apartment and seeing Cosby wearing a white terrycloth bathrobe and acting as if there was nothing unusual. It was obvious to me that he had had sex with me. I was horrified, embarrassed and ashamed. There was a mirror above the bed, which shocked me further.”
Ladd is just one of more than two dozen women to accuse Cosby of sexual assault and or being drugged 10, 20, 30 even 40 years ago.
HipHollywood reached out to Cosby’s lawyer, but so far no word back.
Halle Berry & Her Wig Return For L.A. Riots Drama ‘Kings’
We may know why Halle Berry had those trendils of terrors at last years Oscars ceremony … she was in character for her new flick Kings.
The trailer just dropped and Berry’s curly locks are pretty identical to the ones she infamously rocked at the 2017 Academy awards. Folks went in on the gorgeous beauty about her hair choice for the evening, but we think once people see the trailer they’ll give her a pass.
Kings tells the story of Millie (Berry), a single mother with eight children, and some of them aren’t even her own. But she takes it upon herself to give them the best home that she can, even if it brings a little craziness into her neighborhood and drives her next door neighbor Obie (Daniel Craig) a little crazy. But there’s turmoil on the horizon after the Rodney King verdict is announced and the riots begin, seemingly putting Millie and her family in danger on the streets.
Similar to last years Detroit the flick, directed by Deniz Gamze Ergüven tackles racial tensions between citizens and law enforcement. Kings received mixed reviews when it premiered at September’s Toronto International Film Festival, but audiences will get to make up their own minds about the hot-button race-relations drama when it lands in theaters on April 27.
