'He kissed me so hard in the mouth'

'He kissed me so hard in the mouth'
REVELATION: Mrs Carla Ferrigno has accused Bill Cosby of attacking her.

More women have come forward with claims that they had been sexually assaulted by comedian Bill Cosby.

And one of his latest accusers is Mrs Carla Ferrigno, the wife of The Incredible Hulk star Lou Ferrigno.

In an interview on the John and Ken Show, Mrs Ferrigno said that Cosby's assault happened in 1967, when she was a 19-year-old Playboy Bunny in Los Angeles working at the Playboy Club.

She said a man in his 30s approached her at Los Angeles International Airport, asked for her number and invited her for dinner. She accepted the offer and met him a week later.

He told her after dinner that Cosby was his close friend and asked if she wanted to go to his house.

Mrs Ferrigno agreed. When they arrived, Cosby's wife, Camille, was there.

After talking about movies, Cosby suggested that they play pool and Mrs Ferrigno said yes as she was "very good" at it, having played it since she was seven.

In the middle of their game, she looked up and did not see Mrs Cosby. "She's probably gone to bed," Cosby told her. After a few more games, Mrs Ferrigno's date had also disappeared.

"Probably to the bathroom," Cosby said.

They kept playing and just as she was ready to put the cue down, he came at her and grabbed her.

"He was much bigger than me. Much bigger and he pulled me so hard and so rough," she said. "(He) kissed me so hard, right in the mouth. No one has ever been that physically violent with me."

Mrs Ferrigno said she was "stunned" and "frozen", but pushed Cosby away.

She asked him what he was doing, but he "just looked" at her.

"What's your problem?" he asked. She replied that she had never been kissed by a black man.

"And he said, 'How was it?' And I said, 'Just the same'."


Mrs Ferrigno recounted that Cosby glared at her and said in a mean tone: "Obviously it isn't, or you wouldn't have made that comment."

She ran off and saw her date in the hallway. She said she realised then that he knew why he had taken her there.

Neither spoke about what happened as he took her home and she never saw the man again.

Mrs Ferrigno said she never told her husband about what happened, but changed her mind recently after the first few women came forward.

She told him: "I'm coming forward. I want to be one of those women. One more nail in the coffin... so he never does this again to anybody!"

Meanwhile, Cosby made his first public appearance since five other women claimed that they were drugged and raped by him.

The 77-year-old was treated to rapturous applause by the audience in the Bahamas show, a benefit for a women's service organisation.

Cosby did not mention the allegations against him during the show, but when a phone went off in the audience, he said: 'Tell them I'm not here'
