Chelsea Handler doesn’t hide her feelings on whether or not she thinks Bill Cosby is guilty of the sexual assault allegations against him. She’s firmly on the guilty side. She’s also recently claimed that she was extremely close to being one of the dozens of women who are now accusing Cosby of drugging and raping them.
In a Hollywood Reporter recap of an interview Chelsea did, she recalled how she says Bill Cosby tried to lure her in and then as she puts it, “He tried to Cosby me”. She said, “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 three 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.'”
It was so “weird” to Chelsea that she got nervous and decided to bring back up. “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.”
For Chelsea, she says she didn’t even put 2 and 2 together when all the accusations about Cosby started hitting the media. She explained what happened when people started talking about Cosby and his alleged victims. “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 …'”. Chelsea added, “Yeah, so yeah, he’s guilty”.
