Victim: Joan Tarshis, a comedy writer working in Hollywood.

Cosby Connection: Was working as a writer for Cosby in 1969 when she was 19 years old and he agreed to mentor her.

Allegations: Tarshis says Cosby drugged and raped her twice while she worked for him. She said she socialized with Cosby a few times on the set of his show “The Bill Cosby Show.” He had a bungalow on set and invited her there after learning she was a comedy writer. “He said, ‘Come up to my bungalow after I’m done shooting and we’ll work on the bit together,’ ” she says. “I thought, ‘That’s really cool. Getting to work with Bill Cosby will be great credit,'” she told People. He fixed her a drink and she blacked out. When she woke up Cosby was taking off her underwear. Tarshis claimed she had a sexual disease, so Cosby forced her to perform oral sex instead. In the second instance, Cosby called her at her parents’ house to invite her to watch him perform. at a nearby venue. She agreed because she was too afraid to turn him down in front of her parents. She had drinks in his hotel room, and they rode in a chauffeured car to the theater. She became woozy and went back to the car. She passed out and woke up the next morning naked in Cosby’s bed. He was naked, too.
