In an interview with The John and Ken Show, former Playboy Bunny Carla Ferrigno (who is the wife of The Incredible Hulk's Lou Ferrigno) said she was on a double date with Cosby and his wife. Ferrigno and her date joined the Cosby's at their home after dinner to shoot some pool. She found herself alone with the comedian and things took an ugly turn:

"He walked over to me and grabbed me and pulled me really tight to him, kissing me in the mouth really, really rough," Ferrigno said. She said he tried to kiss her again, but she pushed him off and got the hell out of his house.

Let's just reiterate that part—He tried this while his wife was in the house. He allegedly went on a double date with his wife and then tried to assault his friend's date. With his own wife nearby. It boggles the mind how disturbingly creepy that is.

Another woman also came forward alleging Cosby drugged and raped her in 1976. Therese Serignese told People she met Cosby at the Las Vegas Hilton when he was headlining there. He offered her a free ticket to the show and invited her backstage. The rest of her story is, sadly, very familiar by now:

The pills, she says, were Quaaludes. "He identified what they were; that's how I knew," she says. "At that point I didn't know what to do, so I just obeyed. I just did it."

"My next memory is I felt high; I don't remember what happened in the meantime. Then my next memory is being in that vanity room, by that big mirror, and he didn't have any clothes on, and obviously I didn't either by that point. I don't know how they got off. I don't have that memory."

They were, she says, in the midst of intercourse. "I was just like bent over, and he was saying all kinds of dirty stuff," she says. "I felt powerless, I didn't know what to do, and the drugs certainly enhanced that. That's what I remember – having sex with him, not wanting to be there, not knowing how to get out of there."

Seventeen women have come forward so far. Another alleged victim is reportedly set to tell her story tonight, according to CBS Pittsburgh. Meanwhile Team Cosby continues to bully reporters and media outlets that try to cover this story.

If I hear one more (generally male) person say "Innocent until proven guilty! There's no evidence!" I am going to SCREAM. Maybe I've spent too much time on reddit trying to fight the good fight, but I cannot believe the lengths some people will go to deny that Cosby has sexually assaulted a mind-boggling number of women under the guise of having high standards for judgment. Which are seemingly ONLY brought out when the accuser is a woman and the accused is a man.
