At a press conference called by Gloria Allred on Thursday, three more women added their names to the long list of Bill Cosby accusers, which now numbers more than 40. All three told stories of Cosby drugging and then sexually assaulting them. Janice Baker-Kinney says she met Cosby in the early '80s, at a pizza party thrown by the casino where she worked. She claims he gave her two pills, which she took, only to wake up the next day in bed with the naked comedian, who told her, "This is between you and me." Marcella Tate was a model who visited the Playboy Mansion with Cosby in 1975. After accepting a drink from him, she says her memories got "cloudy," and she, too, woke up in an unfamiliar bed, with Cosby naked beside her. Autumn Burns, a model and casino employee in the early '70s, says Cosby approached her at work and told her he could help her career. He allegedly invited her up to his room, where he gave her a drink that made her feel "woozy," then assaulted her. At the conference, Allred said the new accusers were coming forward in the hopes that Cosby would finally "take responsibility for his conduct towards women."
