Another actress accuses Bill Cosby of sex assault
A predatory Bill Cosby, in a freaky Las Vegas hotel scene, allegedly assaulted another actress — who was forced to fondle America’s Dad in his luxury suite.
The naked Cosby was lying in wait before the 1992 ambush of model-actress Angela Leslie, a beauty who says she was targeted after sending the comedian a letter and photograph.
“The main thing I want is for people to know him for who he really is,” Leslie told the Daily News on Thursday. “He’s not this dad of America.”
After a driver delivered her to the hotel, she checked into her room before Cosby summoned Leslie to his place. When she spoke about her career aspirations, Cosby called for an impromptu audition.
“If you want to act, show me what you’ve got. Pretend you’re intoxicated,” she recalled he demanded.
The egotistical comedian then poured Leslie a stiff drink and told her to act like she was blasted on booze.
“I couldn’t drink it,” she recounted. “I tasted it and put it down. Then he asked me to go into the bathroom and wet my hair. . . . I walked back out, and he had removed his clothing and gotten into bed.”
Cosby began rubbing against the actress before pouring lotion into her palm and pulling her hand under the blankets.
“With his hand on top of mine, he had me massage his penis,” she said. “He masturbated with my hand. I wasn’t pulling back. I was in shock.”
She now assumes that the cocktail was probably dosed with something to knock her out.
She recalled that Cosby quickly tired of her — “I didn’t drink the alcohol, and maybe since I didn’t pass out, he decided to get rid of me.”
The despondent actress spent the rest of her Vegas stay alone.
“I felt so used,” she said. “I felt that he didn’t get what he wanted, and he threw me out. . . . He didn’t make me feel special in any way. He said, ‘Come here, put your hand here, do this.’ ”
The allegations from Leslie boosted the number of Cosby accusers to eight as the four-time Emmy winner continues to remain mum about the seamy allegations.
Cosby’s attorney, Martin Singer, did not respond to a request for comment.
Leslie, who had met Cosby about two years earlier, recalled an invitation from the comedian to visit him at the Flamingo — where the superstar stayed in his own suite.
Angela Leslie says she was targeted after sending the comedian a letter and photograph.
Leslie, now 52, described a scenario similar to one related by another accuser, Barbara Bowman.
Other common threads emerged in the growing number of retellings: Cosby’s victims were all younger than he was, and six claimed the funnyman drugged them.
Leslie, of Warren, Mich., believes she narrowly escaped the same fate. She said she received two money orders for $700 and one for $800 with instructions from Cosby’s camp to travel to California. She got sick, however, and returned her ticket, she said. Two years later, she went to Las Vegas.
Bowman, who alleges Cosby sexually abused her starting at age 17, told a similar story.
When they first met, Cosby asked her to go into the bathroom, wet her hair and act like she was wasted on booze. Later, she claims, he fixed her a drugged drink and then raped her.
Registered nurse Therese Serignese recounted her tale of a Cosby rape in Las Vegas in a Thursday story on the Huffington Post, while the wife of actor and bodybuilder Lou Ferrigno claimed Cosby roughly kissed her at his home in 1967.
The alleged 1992 assault took place in a luxury suite in a Las Vegas hotel.

Bill Cosby sent her checks and begged her to visit him in Las Vegas, says Angela Leslie.
Serignese said she was just 19 when Cosby met her in the Hilton gift shop and invited her backstage after his show. He then told her to take two white pills with a glass of water.
“The next memory I have was I was in a bathroom and I was kind of bending forward and he was behind me having sex with me,” she recalled.
Leslie said Cosby never called her again after Vegas.
Leslie first met Cosby around 1990 when she was hoping for a role in his movie flop “Ghost Dad.” The acting hopeful was personally invited to the set of “The Cosby Show” after sending him the letter and photo.
She wound up disgusted by the behavior of a man viewed by many — including Leslie — as a role model.
“Whenever I looked at Cosby, I thought he was a father figure,” she said. “I was in shock that he was that kind of (sick) person. I couldn’t believe it.”
Angela Leslie appears in the 1989 film “Chameleon Street.”
The former actress, now working in logistics management, said she decided to come forward after hearing the tales of other women targeted by Cosby.
“I just feel he’s been too quiet, not saying anything, not apologizing,” said Leslie. “He’s trying to pretend these girls are lying. It’s frustrating.
“He is that type of person, a predator. It doesn’t matter your age, he’s going to put his hands on you and degrade you,” she said.
