Actress Garcelle Beauvais may have escaped being one of Bill Cosby’s victims by trusting her instincts during a night at his home.
The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star detailed the encounter in her new book, “Love Me As I Am.” The memoir dives into many career moments for her, including her appearance on “The Cosby Show.” She revealed that when she was 18-years-old, Cosby invited the budding actress and model to his home, where she immediately felt uneasy. During her appearance on Bevy Smith’s SiriusXM show “Bevelations” to promote her book, Beauvais said she believed that other people were inside the brownstone with her and Cosby.
“There was something eerie about not knowing if there’s anybody else in the house and then having, you know, him asking me if I wanna drink, and I wasn’t a drinker. So it was all those things,” Beauvais said to Smith. She went on to reveal that her intuition became too strong, and she knew she needed to “get out of there” immediately, which she did.
For years, dozens of women came forward with accusations of sexual abuse against Cosby. In September 2018, he was sentenced to prison and was released in June 2021 on a technicality.
