Chelsea Handler believes Bill Cosby is guilty because he ‘tried to Cosby’ her
In an interview in the new issue of Esquire outspoken comedian Chelsea Handler talks about a Bill Cosby encounter that set off her spider senses. According to Handler, about ten years ago, she was doing some shows in the same Atlantic City casino as Bill Cosby when someone from the hotel contacted her and said that Cosby wanted to meet her. The part that set her off is that he wanted her to go up to his hotel suite.
From the Esquire interview:
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. And I forgot about it when all the stories about Bill Cosby came out. I was like, I didn’t even think of it. 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 …”
From that encounter, Handler concluded, “Yeah, so yeah, he’s guilty … I think it’s pretty obvious now.”
Admittedly, we don’t know what would have happened if she had gone up alone to meet the alleged serial rapist, but that uncertainty is unsettling enough given the three dozen accusations from women who claim to have been drugged and assaulted by the comedian.
