Chelsea Handler: Bill Cosby "Tried to Cosby Me" Too
Chelsea Handler tells a story of when Bill Cosby invited her to his Atlantic City hotel room.
Chelsea Handler recently said she thinks Bill Cosby is guilty of raping the women who allege he drugged and sexually assaulted them, because she has a near-miss story of her own.
"He tried to Cosby me," said Handler in an interview with Esquire.
"I was in Atlantic City playing, doing stand-up, and he was doing stand-up in Atlantic City in the same hotel, and at like 3 o'clock in the afternoon, someone from the hotel came down and said, 'Oh, you know, Mr. Cosby would really like to meet you up in his hotel suite.' And I thought, 'That's really weird.' "
She continued, "This was like 10 years ago. And I said, That's really weird. I don't want to go alone. I go, 'I don't know him.' "
"So the three guys I was with — thank god these guys were with me," said the comedian. "One was filming and one was, like, a producer — we were filming something. I brought them up with me to his room, and thank god I did, because now I know what would've happened if I went up there alone."
Handler said she "didnt even think" of that incident when all of the allegations against Cosby began coming out. "Then my friend texted me the other day saying, 'Do you remember that night we went up to, or that afternoon we went up to Bill Cosby's, and you were so freaked out you made us come with you?' And I said, 'Yeah,' and he said, 'Hello! You could've been one of his victims if we weren't there.' And I went, 'Oh my gosh … ' "
"Yeah, so yeah. He's guilty," she added.
