A former actress who appeared on The Cosby Show, has stepped forward with rape claims leveled against Bill Cosby.

Billboard.com reports:

Lili Bernard was mentored by the comedian, USA Today reported, and made an appearance on the show in 1992 as Mrs. Minifield in the episode “Bring Me the Lip Gloss of Deirdre Arpelle.” The former actress is one of two women that made public claims at a New York press conference on Friday (May 1) alleging that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted them in the 1990s.

According to the newspaper’s report, another accuser, Sammie Mays, also appeared at the press conference and said she met Cosby in the late 1980s while covering a convention in New Orleans. She claims she was sexually assaulted during an interview in his hotel room after he gave her a drink and she lost consciousness, USA Today reported.

Gloria Allred represented the women at the press conference.

“Unlike most other states, New Jersey has no statue of limitations for rape, which means that law enforcement is not prevented from prosecuting a case because of an arbitrary time period set by law,” Allred said, as quoted by the newspaper.

    It just amazes me how none of the women accused him when it actually happened and some of the women kept going back.

    I’m not saying these women are not telling the truth (and I’m not saying they are) but I keep asking myself….why did it take them sooooo long? This man was on TV and a star of some very popular shows and commercials; so he was very visible. It only makes you wonder, what are their motives to bring this to light now???? Only God knows what really happened but I wished ALL of these women would have come forward sooner rather than later.
