Bill Cosby The Women Speak special A&E

Over the past year, more than 50 women have come forward to accuse comedian Bill Cosby of sexual misconduct. Now they are getting an opportunity to tell their stories with an hour-long television special titled Cosby: The Women Speak.

The special will air Thursday, September 17, at 9/8c on A&E. The network calls it “a provocative one-hour special offering intimate interviews with some of Bill Cosby’s accusers detailing his perfect storm of fame, power and rapid professional decline following mounting allegations by dozens of women.”

More from the press release:

New and past accusers tell us their story to help piece together the downfall one of the most respected entertainers in American history. First-hand accounts from the women themselves help examine the allegations, decade by decade to reveal new information and insight into the case. Cosby: The Women Speak will premiere Thursday, September 17th at 9 PM ET/PT.

As new allegations of sexual and other misconduct are leveled against comedian Bill Cosby, a horrific story is emerging of alleged assaults, drugging, unwanted advances and molestation of young women. Compelling interviews with over one dozen women, including actress Louisa Moritz, publicist Joan Tarshis and model Beverly Johnson, are seen throughout the special. We also examine what happened when Hannibal Burress’ standup went viral and how Cosby’s spokespeople have been responding since the firestorm of allegations began. Finally, we hear from the accusers about why they have come forward, how this story began and what’s next.

    Just set the DVR for this.

    What a wretched piece of shit he is. It’s just sad the slam to his career (and some jail time, which it’s too late for) couldn’t have come before he was 78 years old. However, some say it ruined all kinds of opportunities for him, and to that I say, karma bites all kinds of hard and the truth always comes out.

    Is there any real PROOF?

    • Juggling For A Cure

      The proof is un-vetted media articles and statements from self-promoting celebrities and politicians.

    I just don’t think this many women would come forward with stories that are so similar yet individually detailed if there were no truth to this. And for people who say these women just want a moment in the spotlight I say this: most of these women are in their 50’s and 60’s, what could they gain from this? Certainly they aren’t looking for career opportunities because there isn’t much out there for women to break into the industry at that age. And some of the other women are already famous in their own right. Many are well known actresses and models. And why would anyone want to be known for something that is obviously humiliating and painful? I think they just want a chance to share their story and shed light on the horrible things he’s done to so many women. How is it fair that he was perceived as this Hollywood golden boy and role model for so many years when he looked at these women as nothing but objects and took advantage of their naivety and vulnerability while promising them he’d advance their careers? It’s also really terrible that he refuses to take any responsibility for his actions and continues to question the reliability of these women who really have nothing to gain. You can’t do something like this to over 50 women over a period of many decades and expect all of these victims to keep your dirty secret.

      “You can’t do something like this to over 50 women over a period of many decades and expect all of these victims to keep your dirty secret.”
      I think if you delude yourself enough, have grandiose ideas about your importance to society, and assume others share your disdain for certain “types” of women (what a goofball move in drugging an athlete!!!), you can totally rape while expecting no one besides your victim will care. I think he was banking on the fact that even if they spoke, if they shared his dirty secret, nothing would happen because he’s the…. er…. was the great and powerful Coz.
      But everything else I totally agree with!

    The media, President Obama, and self-promoting celebrities are hurling McCarthyistic assaults at Bill Cosby while being silent on Bill Clinton, whose alleged sexual assault history is as follows:

    Juanita Broaddrick – said that she was raped by Clinton. Eileen Wellstone – said that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton. Carolyn Moffet – said that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton. Elizabeth Ward, Miss America 1982 – said she was raped by Clinton. Sandra Allen James – said that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton. Christy Zercher – said that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton. Kathleen Willey – said that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton. 22-year old Yale student (unidentified) – said that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton. Female student at University of Arkansas (unidentified) – said that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton. Why are the people who profess to assail Cosby out of a concern for alleged victims silent on Clinton?

    The media, President Obama and self-promoting celebrities’ “concern” for alleged sexual assault victims is not victim-based, but accused-based. That is their concern is contingent upon who is accused.
