On Wednesday three more women, with attorney Gloria Allred by their side, held a press conference and accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault. The three women shared stories similar to those of the more than 40 other women who have come forward over the last year. The latest accusers include two actresses and a flight attendant.

Actress Eden Tirl said she met Cosby when she appeared as a police officer on an episode of The Cosby Show. Tirl alleged that Cosby sexually assaulted her in 1989 on the set of The Cosby Show.


Linda Ridgeway Whitedeer, also an actress, said her assault took place during an interview and didn't involve drugs. Whitedeer said that Cosby assaulted her in a director's office, where, she said, he "shoved [his penis] into [her] mouth," according to Entertainment Tonight.

Cosby's third accuser Wednesday is former flight attendant Colleen Hughes, who alleged that she joined Cosby for lunch at a hotel and that after having a glass of wine, she woke up naked and confused.


The newest accusations come on the heels of Cosby's being denied an appeal by the California Supreme Court regarding a lawsuit stemming from another alleged victim, Judith Huth, who is also represented by Allred. Huth claims that she was molested by Cosby at the Playboy Mansion in 1975. Cosby will have to appear for a deposition in October.
