Rosie O’Donnell Claims Bill Cosby Sexual Harrassed Staffers on Her Talkshow

Bill Cosby just can’t catch a break. It’s really surprising how being a rapist can ruin your legacy as a television dad, especially considering it’s clearly no impediment to the office of President of the United States. Maybe when he gets out of jail he should run for President to reform his image, because apparently people won’t watch reruns of your sitcom if you’re a rapist but they will vote for you.

Rosie O’Donnell was recently on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and told a story about what Cosby was up to back when she had an afternoon talk show.

Via Inquisitr:

O’Donnell said the female producer told Cosby that Rosie would never guess he was the mystery guest. The talk show star then revealed that Cosby allegedly told the producer the following.

“‘All [Rosie] has to do is put her hand right here’– and he put his hand near his penis — ‘and she’ll know it’s me.’”

O’Donnell said the producer began to cry and that a male producer then confronted Cosby to school him on what was not considered “appropriate” behavior.

That sounds very strange to me. Like, it’s not that I don’t believe her, but Cosby was always complaining about dick jokes; the man keeps it’s clean, he just rapes, he doesn’t work blue. And who bursts into tears at someone gesturing to his penis while making a crude joke? itks a very odd story.

Cosby denies these allegations, too.

In a statement following O’Donnell’s WWHL appearance, Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt questioned why she would raise “false” allegations about Cosby two decades after her talk show went off the air.

“The show ended in 2002 but now she waits years later to accuse Mr. Cosby of making lewd comments to a female producer,” Wyatt said, per USA Today. “This is just another attempt for a well-known celebrity like Rosie O’Donnell and many others to create false allegations about Mr. Cosby, in order to gain attention for themselves.”

If she’s a well-known celebrity, why does she need to make up stories about Bill Cosby to get attention? She was already on the talk show, she didn’t need to make up the story to get Andy Cohen to talk to her. The only thing working in Cosby’s favor here, really, is that the crew member was conscious, and that isn’t his M.O.
