Another corroborator of the allegations about Bill Cosby – this time not a woman but a former wing man.
A former NBC employee and Bill Cosby confidante has claimed to the New York Daily News that he acted as a cover-up for the comedian as he slept with women and paid them off.
Well…he’s just doing it for the fame and attention!
Frank Scotti, 90, who worked for the studio where “The Cosby Show” was filmed from 1984 to 1992, told the Daily News that he took out money orders in his name to pay women who he suspects Cosby had slept with. Scotti also alleges that he would stand guard at Cosby’s dressing room while he met with young models.
Well…I’m sure Cosby was just giving them good fatherly advice on how to pull their pants up.
Cosby would reportedly claim he was “interviewing” the young models for parts in his show.
He allegedly had a deal with a Manhattan modeling agency that would stop by the set with several girls at once. Cosby would then take his pick, Scotti said.
“The owner [of the agency] just walked right out,” Scotti told the Daily News. “She knew exactly what was going to go on. Then he’d tell me, ‘Stand outside the door and don’t let anyone in.’ Now you put that together and figure [out] why.”
Career advice. Grooming tips. Experiments in the effects of certain drugs when mixed with alcohol or tea or Sprite.
Scotti provided signed memorabilia and photographs of himself and Cosby to the Daily News. He also showed receipts for money orders with the names of women on them — at least one of whom recently stepped forward to accuse Cosby of sexual assault.
Cosby’s accusers have said that the comedian lured them in with promises of career help and mentorship, then gave them pills to make them immobile so he could assault them. The allegations span decades — some dating back to 1969 and one as recent as 2004.
Ok ok ok fine, but never mind all that, because he’s Cliff Huxtable. That’s all that counts.
