Another woman has come forward to accuse BILL COSBY of sexual assault. Publicist Joan Tarshis claims that Cosby assaulted her twice in 1969 when she was 19 years old. Tarshis was an aspiring writer and two friends of hers in Los Angeles took her to have lunch with Cosby at Universal Studios, where he was shooting The Bill Cosby Show. She said Cosby never drank alcohol, but he always topped her Bloody Mary's with beer, which he called a 'redeye.' Cosby kept inviting her back and one day asked her to stay after filming and work on some material. Tarshis says Cosby made her a redeye and the next thing she remembered was coming to on his couch while being undressed. Despite that, sometime later she agreed to out with him. She had a couple drinks, started feeling woozy and later woke up naked in his bed back at the hotel. However, Cosby may have given himself away in a 1969 comedy routine on his album It's True! It's True! In the routine, Cosby talks about the so-called Spanish Fly drug and slipping some in the drinks of five women at a party. (Hear here-preview)
