What makes Handler’s claim so shocking, after more than 30 women have come forward with similar accusations against the man who was once considered the greatest role model for parenthood in America, is that she is the first celebrity to make the claim.
The 40 year old’s exact claim was, “he tried to Cosby me.”
It is a special kind of interview where Handler and former star of the sitcom “Parks and Recreation” Nick Offerman talk to one another about sex. The article comes with pictures of the two holding hand naked and in a bathtub together.
Handler made the revelation after the subject of date rape came up.
Apparently Handler and Cosby were once both doing their respective standup comedy routines in a hotel in Atlantic City. At about 1PM someone from the hotel came to Chandler and asked her if she wanted to go to Cosby’s hotel suite. The man told Handler that Bill Cosby wanted to meet her.
Handler said, “This was like ten 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. 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.”
So in actuality nothing happened to Handler in Cosby’s suite. He did not even have the chance to offer her a drink that could have been spiked with GHB. But she thinks that he must have been planning to do something to her because of all the stories that have now come out.
Handler says that she forgot the whole thing until the rape accusations against Cosby began rolling in. She believes the stories and that Cosby is definitely guilty.
One of her friends recently told her, ”You could’ve been one of his victims if we weren’t there.” And she responded, “Oh my gosh …Yeah, so yeah, he’s guilty.”
To that Offerman responded, “Yeah, I think it’s pretty obvious now.”
