Michelle Hurd: Law & Order Actress Accuses Bill Cosby of Sexual Abuse

Yet another woman has come forward alleging that she was sexually abused by comedy legend Bill Cosby, thus bringing the total number of accusers to 18.

Hurd made the accusation in a lengthy post on her Facebook page:

“I wasn’t going to say anything,” Hurd writes. “But I can’t believe some of the things I’ve been reading, so here is my personal experience.”

“I did stand-in work on The Cosby Show back in the day and YES, Bill Cosby was VERY inappropriate with me.”

Hurd goes on to describe how Cosby touched her inappropriately, invited her into his dressing room, and asked her to shower at his house.

“I dodged the ultimate bullet with him when he asked me to come to his house, take a shower so we could blow dry my hair and see what it looked like straightened,” Hurd writes.

“At that point my own red flags went off and I told him, ‘No, I’ll just come to work tomorrow with my hair straightened.'”

She adds that he instructed her, “‘NEVER tell anyone what we do together.'”

Hurd claims that another actress on the show was drugged while visiting Cosby’s house.

Hurd’s story comes on the heels of similar accusations made by Carla Ferrigno and Terese Serignese on Friday.

Cosby has denied the allegations through his attorney.

More Duggar Trouble: Petition to Cancel 19 Kids and Counting Reaches Goal of 100,000 Signatures

Back in September, a petition to convince TLC to cancel 19 Kids and Counting was posted on the website Change.org, and began to slowly make the rounds online.

The petition was a response to Michelle Duggar’s involvement in a campaign to repeal an anti-discrimination law. Yes, repeal a law against discrimination.

Say yes to sex, even when you're tired!

Be available. Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has, and you always need to be available when he calls. – Michelle Duggar


Be available. Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has, and you always need to be…

The law in question prevents employers and landlords from denying jobs and housing to applicants on the basis of sexual preference. The Duggars? Not fans.

Michelle recorded a robocall claiming the law allowed “males with past child predator convictions” who “claim they are female” to enter women’s bathrooms and locker rooms.

Well, the author of the petition to axe 19 Kids and Counting claims that Michelle’s recording constitutes hate speech, and that TLC is implicitly supporting such beliefs.

Apparently, more than 123,000 people agree with him.

For months, the petition – titled “End LGBTQ Fear Mongering By the Duggars” – languished in obscurity, receiving just 6,000 signatures in its first two months online.  

However, a recent controversy involving Michelle and Jim Bob Duggars’ Facebook page brought a renewed interest in the Duggars’ political beliefs.

It all started when Michelle and Jim Bob asked married couples to submit photos of themselves kissing by posting them on the official Duggars’ Facebook page.

Several hundred did so, only for a number of gay and interracial couples to claim that their pictures were immediately deleted by the Arkansas couple.

The resulting uproar and media attention resulted in the anti-Duggar petition receiving an additional 117,000 signatures in the past four days alone.

Dates Without Chaperones


The Duggar parents often accompany their children on dates in order to maintain their “accountability” and “keep things from going in the wrong direction,” per Jim Bob. The girls are fine with this, as being alone with men puts them in grave “moral danger.” When the parents aren’t available, their older siblings will often tag along, making every date a group date and a family affair.

The Duggars have yet to respond to the campaign to have them taken off the air, but they did say, vaguely, that they will not compromise their values.

Stay tuned, and watch 19 Kids and Counting online to decide for yourself if the Duggars are dangerous or harmless, and tell us below in the comments:

Should TLC cancel the show because of the Duggars’ views?

Mike Fleiss: Harassing Brooke Burke & David Charvet With Physical Threats, Fake Barking Dogs!

The Bachelor creator and executive producer Mike Fleiss is facing criminal charges for harassing David Charvet and Brooke Burke. You won’t believe how.

  • Mike Fleiss Picture
  • David Charvet and Brooke Burke Pic

An arrest warrant was issued by the Los Angeles County D.A., charging Fleiss with the crime of disturbing the peace via the use of excessive noise.

David Charvet and Brooke Burke have complained that Fleiss “initiated a campaign of terror and harassment” against them, and now we know why.

In addition to making physical threats against them, allegedly … he’s been blaring barking dog sounds from huge speakers pointing at their property.

It’s not clear why, but he apparently despises the married parents of four more than Reality Steve and The Bachelor spoilers that leak every December.

Charvet and Burke tried unsuccessfully last month to obtain a restraining order, but the police evidently took up the case, and Fleiss will be arrested.

Again, we have no idea what started the beef with Brooke and David, but The Bachelor honcho does not sound like a person you’d want as a neighbor.

Fleiss, who married Laura Kaeppeler earlier this year, was reportedly uncooperative with law enforcement officials during the ensuing investigation.

Story developing …

Janice Dickinson Stands by Bill Cosby Rape Allegations, Offers New Details

Janice Dickinson is not backing down.

The veteran model made major headlines this week when she accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault and, despite the comedian’s attorney denying this accusation, Dickinson insisted on its validity in an interview with Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday.

“I’m coming forward because this is the right thing to do and it happened to me and this is the true story,” Dickinson says in the following Q&A.

Dickinson says the rape took place in 1982 after Cosby called and invited her to Lake Tahoe.

She says Cosby put something in her red wine, she awoke without her pajamas on and the last thing she remembers is Cosby taking off his robe and getting on top of her.

She never confronted the actor about the alleged assault.

With this accusation, Dickinson becomes the 15th woman to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault.

The former sitcom star – who had been speaking with NBC about anchoring a new series, until the network pulled the plug on that deal once this scandal hit – was asked about the rape allegations earlier this month in a sit-down with The Associated Press.

However, Cosby refused to answer the question… and then asked the reporter multiple times to never show the footage of him refusing to answer.

But that footage has now been made available to the public. Here it is:

In a statement, Cosby’s attorney denied Dickinson’s rape claim, along with those of the other supposed victims.

The video above is damaging, however. It’s nearly impossible to watch it and see Bill Cosby in a very different light than ever before.

Benzino: FIRED From Love & Hip Hop Atlanta For Post-Reunion Death Threats!

Benzino has been fired from VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta after the infamous reunion show brawl, and for his alleged actions in the weeks that followed.

Benzino on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta

Apparently, death threats he made following the Love & Hip Hop Atlanta reunion fight triggered Benzino’s firing more than his role in the epic fracas itself.

According to TMZ, Benzino got the chop soon after the taping, too.

Multiple cast and crew members ended up in the hospital as a result of the melee, which you can watch Love & Hip Hop Atlanta online now to experience.

Criminal charges and an arrest warrant were even taken out against Joseline Hernandez, Stevie J’s partner and Benzino’s (former) co-star and rival.

It was Benzino, though, who had a problem letting the thing go.

Stevie J says he waged a campaign of terror, threatening the lives of himself and Joseline, producers and other staffers involved with the VH1 program.

“He said flat out he was going to kill us,” Stevie recalls.

The threats and elevated DefCon 3 tension levels were too much for the network, which cut ties with the cast member rather than risk anything escalating.

Benzino tells a different story than Stevie, shockingly.

“Stevie J is a habitual liar and VH1 has never given me a reason for being fired,” he adds, lamenting that “they wanted to keep the crackhead whore.”

That would be Hernandez. Reports have circulated that Joseline was on crack during the reunion, though Stevie has angrily denied those allegations.

In any case, Benzino did get fired, he concedes.

Joseline Hernandez of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta fame.

Will anyone else be axed from the cast next?

That remains to be seen, but expect this show to be back with a vengeance come 2014. Between that fight and the Mimi sex tape, ratings were sky high.

Higher than Joseline on … never mind.

Raven-Symone Slams Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Rumor: FALSE AND GROSS!

With more and more women coming out over the past few days and accusing legendary comedian Bill Cosby of rape, Raven-Symone would like to go on record:

She is NOT one of them.

Raven-Symone Image

The 28-year old actress, forever known as Olivia from The Cosby Show to fans of that classic sitcom, found herself entangled in the Cosby scandal today, with chatter around the Internet alleging Bill Cosby sexually assaulted her.

To that rumor, Symone had the following to say via Facebook:

“I was NOT taking advantage of by Mr. Cosby when I was on the Cosby Show! I was practically a baby on that show and this is truly a disgusting rumor that I want no part of! Everyone on that show treated me with nothing but kindness. Now keep me out of this!”

A few weeks ago, comedian Hannibal Buress quipped in a stand-up routine about the fact that Cosby has been accused of rape by at least 13 women over the years.

Most of these alleged incidents took place over four decades ago.

Since then, supposed victims such as Joan Tarshis have come forward, sharing horrifying stories about how Cosby drugged them and forced them to perform various sexual acts.

Even supermodel Janice Dickinson claims Cosby sexually assaulted her.

Cosby’s attorney has denied all allegations, though the star himself has remained quiet. In response, Netflix has postponed a planned comedy special with Cosby and NBC has pulled the plug on a new sitcom featuring the actor.

This evening, meanwhile, TV Land yanked all reruns of The Cosby Show off the air.

Gia Giudice on Parents’ Impending Prison Sentence: We’ll Be Fine!

Gia Giudice has a message for anyone who wants to send a message of sympathy to her and her infamous family:

Thanks, but no thanks!

The 13-year old daughter of Teresa Giudice – who folks often see when they watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online – spoke to Access Hollywood about her parents’ impending prison sentences this week and sang a positive tune.

Two Giudices

“Obviously any news that is hurtful or horrible to hear is so upsetting,” Gia said. “But my family is probably one of the strongest families I know, so we’ll get through this. It’s gonna be fine. And when it’s over, we’re gonna be better than ever.”

It begins early next month when Teresa Giudice begins serving a 15-month jail term for multiple counts of financial fraud.

After she is set free, husband Joe Giudice will serve 41 months behind bars.

For now, Gia is focusing on her band 3KT, which she formed with friends Alexa Maetta, and Christianna Cardinale.

The threesome recently released their first music video back in October: a cover of Britney Spears’ “Circus” that included many skimpy outfits and risque choreography.

Did we mention that Gia Giudice is 13 years old?

“My parents think it’s fun,” Gia says of her music career. “My mom was there every step of the way. And when my dad saw it, he was like, ‘Nice, Gia.’ I just want to make them proud. That’s all that matters.”

If only Gia’s parents felt the same way in return. They are terrible human beings.

Table Flipping Fiend


Teresa Giudice is not gonna take any crap. Her table-flipping reputation will precede her in prison, thanks to The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 1.

NBC Cancels Plans For Bill Cosby Sitcom Amidst New Rape Allegations

Allegations that Bill Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted a number of women over the course of several decades resurfaced in recent weeks after comedian Hannibal Burress referenced the charges during a stand-up performance in San Francisco.

On Monday, a woman named Joan Tarshis accused Cosby of rape, claiming that the comedy legend sedated her and forced her to have oral sex with him in 1969.

Yesterday, model and former reality star Janice Dickinson made similar allegations, thus becoming the fifteenth woman to accuse Cosby of criminal abuse.

Prior to this latest scandal, Cosby was in the midst of a career comeback, with a Netflix special, stand-up tour, and NBC sitcom planned for the coming year.

While no venues on the tour have canceled Cosby’s appearances, Netflix has opted not to proceed with the planned special, and NBC announced today that its terminated its contract with the 77-year-old comic.

The network first broke the news to writers and other staffers who had been hired for the series. Sources say production was halted immediately, despite the fact that NBC will be forced to pay a hefty penalty to Cosby for refusing to go ahead with the pilot.

Cosby has denied the allegations through his attorney, but has not yet spoken publicly about the scandal.

Maria Jose Alvarado, Miss Honduras 2014, Found Dead Alongside Sister

Very sad news today out of Honduras:

Maria Jose Alvarado, who was crowned Miss Honduras in April and who was scheduled to compete in the Miss World Pageant next month in London, was found dead outside a spa near the Aguagua River in the village of Cablotales.

Alvarado’s sister, Sofia Trinidad, was found buried in the ground alongside the beauty queen.

According to The Associated Press, Maria and Sofia were both shot to death by the latter’s boyfriend, Plutarco Ruiz.

The Honduras National Police Director says Ruiz confessed to authorities and led them to the bodies of the sisters, which were located found near La Aguagua spa, where they had gone Thursday to celebrate Ruiz’s birthday.

“They were not very astute about assessing the people around them. They were just friendly,” the sisters’ mother, Teresa Munoz, told Televicentro. “They were taken out by people they hadn’t known very long.”

An accomplice of Ruiz’s is also being held by local police.

Ruiz allegedly shot Sofia because she was dancing with another man and then took out Maria when she tried to flee the scene.

An April report from the UN confirmed that Honduras has the highest homicide rate (90.4 people murdered per 100,000) in the world.

Janice Dickinson Accuses Bill Cosby of Sexual Assault

Retired supermodel and former America’s Next Top Model judge has become the latest woman to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault.

In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, Dickinson claims that Cosby drugged and raped her in Lake Tahoe following a business meeting in 1982.

  • Bill Cosby Photo

Dickinson is the 15th woman to come forward with allegations against Cosby.

Earlier this week, a woman named Joan Tarshis accused Cosby of rape and provided shocking details of the comedian’s abuse in an interview with Inside Edition.

Dickinson claims Cosby asked her to travel to Tahoe and have dinner with him, so that they could discuss the possibility of her appearing on The Cosby Show.

According to Dickinson, Cosby offered her a glass of red wine and a pill, which he said was a painkiller that would help with her menstrual cramps. Dickinson now believes the pill was a powerful sedative:

“The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas,” Dickinson told ET. “And I remember before I passed out that I had been assaulted by this man.”

“I’m doing this because it’s the right thing to do,” Dickinson says about coming forward. “I believe all of the other women.”

Cosby has yet to respond publicly to the allegations. When asked about the charges during a recent NPR interview, Cosby simply went silent.
