    Dumped by his agency some time ago. Good.

    Cos And Effect: Dropped Months Ago By CAA, Bill Cosby Is Un-Repped In Hollywood

    Bill Cosby was quietly dumped by CAA, which represented him since 2012, and he is now without talent representation in Hollywood. Cosby, accused of drugging and raping more than two dozen women, was dropped by the talent agency late last year per insiders at the agency – long before the latest revelation surfaced that he’d admitted in a deposition to having obtained Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with.

    “We do not represent him at this time,” a CAA official told Deadline.

    Cosby is still listed as a CAA client on IMDBpro.com and he was on the list of clients in play when a dozen agents from the comedy department defected to UTA (though he was already in the midst of scandal and was probably the only one not being fought over at the time). Cosby made a splash when he moved to CAA in 2012 after being represented by the William Morris Agency for 48 years. When NBC’s The Cosby Show was at the peak of popularity, he was probably the most important client in the WMA fold, because of all the money that agency made from packaging fees. That is a distant memory, and at present, the only one sticking by him is David Brokaw, his longtime publicist who is the son of Norman Brokaw, the former WMA chairman who was Cosby’s longtime rep. David Brokaw declined comment here. Unless Cosby can somehow prove that the allegations are false, it seems unlikely he will need an agent for he’ll probably never work in this town again. As he turns 78 on Sunday, the latest development in his stunning fall from grace is Disney’s decision to remove a bronze statue from Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida.

    Cosby isn’t the first star to be dumped by his agent after becoming toxic in Hollywood. OJ Simpson was dumped by ICM, which had represented him for 20 years, shortly after he was acquitted of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ron Goldman. And Mel Gibson was dropped by the William Morris Agency five years ago after a secretly taped conversation was made public, in which he made racist comments.

    Personal commentary: Whoopie is a cunt. Even after reading his deposition, where he admitted he gave prescription drugs to women to have with them, she wants to defend this rapist. Her "innocent until proven guilty" stance is bullshit. The DA dropped the charges because the victim dropped the case after accepting a financial settlement. That doesn't means he is innocent.

    Whoopi Goldberg Defends Bill Cosby Again and Tells Critics: 'Back Off Me!' : People.com


    Whoopi Goldberg Gets Threats over Defense of Bill Cosby, Tells Critics: 'Back Off Me!'

    Whoopi Goldberg has been defending Bill Cosby ever since the many rape allegations against him surfaced. But Wednesday on The View, she was defending herself – adamantly, at times indignantly – in the face of threats she said she's been getting for her stance on the matter.

    "People have been coming after me and saying they're going to snatch my family," the cohost and comic, 59, said in a bracing monologue. "It's like being Frankenstein, people coming after you with the fire and they're going to burn you."

    She didn't apologize for her stance. Quite the opposite. She reiterated that Cosby, 77 – who admitted in 2005 court documents, unsealed this week, that he gave Quaaludes to a woman and then had sex with her – should be considered innocent until proven guilty.

    "Not any of you threatening me or telling me you're coming after me because you don't like what I said is going to change the fact that no one has convicted him, he has not been arrested," said Goldberg, who said the threats came after she discussed the matter Tuesday on The View.

    "The bottom line is, that's the law," she added. "Innocent until proven guilty."

    As evidence that due process is important, the Oscar winner pointed to the 2006 Duke case, when a false accusation of rape was made against three members of the university's lacrosse team.

    "No one here thinks rape is good. No one here thinks rapists are fun," Goldberg said. "So, don't come after me like that, 'cause I'm sick of this bull."

    She added: "Here's the bottom line, for me: It's my opinion. And the American courts agree with me, because still he has not been taken to jail or trial on anything. So, back off me!"

    Dozens of women have accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting them. The entertainer has denied any wrongdoing, once calling the claims "innuendos," and has not been charged with a crime.

    Cosby's lawyer Marty Singer previously slammed the comedian's numerous accusers in November, arguing that it's "utter nonsense" that these women are "coming out of nowhere."

    Since when is being tried in a court of law a prerequisite for being guilty of a crime? It's a prerequisite of being convicted of a crime. He already admitted in a court document that he is guilty. The reason he was never found guilty is because of his $$$.

    I can't believe Whoopi is going to flush herself right down the drain with him. I don't even think it's a case of a die-hard friend sticking with someone.

    ^^^ then why do you think she's doing it? i can't imagine any other reason that either blind loyalty, or thinking job opportunities will dry up. and i don't think they work together, so the latter probably doesn't apply.

    Can the courts touch him? What is the statute of limitations for sexual assaults?

    Because she doesn't want to backtrack and say she was wrong, probably.

    Maybe I don't know what all Whoopie has said on this and I think she's an asshole after her "rape rape" comments but....

    She's saying he hasn't been convicted of a crime so she can't say if he's guilty. She can't make a legal judgement. She really shouldn't be asked.

    It's one thing to bullshit around the water cooler or here, but if I were a public figure, who's words would be reported around the world in an instant, I wouldn't stand up and declare someone a rapist based on what I read in the papers even if privately I thought he was guilty. It wouldn't be my place and it's not hers.

    Unless she flat out said he was innocent. Then she is making a legal judgement and she ought to shut it.

    I still can't get my head wrapped around his incessant moralizing while he had this horrible history. I know that history is replete with guys like this, but he seems to have continued with his holier-than-thou attitude even after settlements with various women.

    So, it looks like Cosby is getting part of his due (disgraced, broken endorsements and affiliations, and what has been repeatedly called the end of his career), but what about others????

    I was just flicking through the cable channels and came across 7th Heaven (which I've never watched). The lead on that show is SICK and it was to children! And it's the same situation where he actually admitted it too. And I remember really sick things that came out of that guy's counseling sessions with his wife, something like he was glad they had one gender of a child because he was afraid he wouldn't be able to keep his mouth off the baby's genitals. Why is his show still airing? And then there's Jeffrey Jones, who I've always had a bad vibe from even before his conviction for child porn charges (and I believe his admission that he had sex with underaged boys). He still gets work! WTF?

    Is Bill Cosby a Predatory Somnophiliac?

    Somnophilia is a clinically diagnosable fetish. A new motion filed by Cosby’s first accuser uses this word as a possible reason to why he allegedly drugged and raped women.

    Comedian Bill Cosby’s first accuser is asking a judge to release full details of his deposition in her sexual assault lawsuit, in a motion that comes after shocking excerpts from Cosby’s deposition were released this week in response to an Associated Press request.

    In one excerpt, Cosby said he obtained seven Quaalude prescriptions in the 1970s with the intent of having extramarital sex with young women. He also testified to giving a woman three half-pills of Benadryl — an antihistamine that can induce drowsiness in some people.

    Dolores M. Troiani, a lawyer for Andrea Constand — who sued Cosby in 2005, alleging he drugged and raped her after she met him while working at Temple University — argued Wednesday that the entire deposition should be made public under grounds that Cosby, his lawyers, and his agents broke the confidentiality agreement that sealed the 2006 court document.

    According to Troiani, the deposition includes 50 questions that Cosby answered under oath about his use of Quaaludes and other drugs and his alleged sexual interactions with 13 other women who say Cosby molested and possibly drugged them.

    “Although some of the women engaged in consensual relations with Cosby, their accounts substantiated the defendant’s alleged predilection for somnophilia,” Troiani wrote in her motion.

    Wait, what? Somnophilia?

    Somnophilia is a clinically diagnosable fetish in which a person is sexually aroused by a partner who is asleep or unconscious. “It’s also known as the ‘Sleeping Beauty fetish,’” sex therapist and best-selling author Ian Kerner, PhD, who has treated somnophiliacs, tells Yahoo Health.

    (Somnophilia shouldn’t be confused with sexsomnia — or sleep sex— where a person acts out sexual behaviors while in an unconscious sleep state.)

    Somnophilia is found in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), which is the standard classification of disorders used by mental health professionals in the U.S. The disorder is classified as a “predatory paraphilia.” (“Paraphilia” is the clinical term used for fetishes.)

    “If the act of somnophilia involves harm to self or others (lack of consent, for instance) and/or impairs the person’s ability to live, it is considered a disorder and not a mere sexual/arousal orientation,” clinical sexologist Kat Van Kirk, PhD, explains to Yahoo Health.

    Somnophilia is rare and, in order for a person to receive a clinical diagnosis, must be a persistent and distressful arousal experience that occurs for a minimum of six months, she adds. It can sometimes progress into necrophilia, a fetish in which a person is aroused by having sex with cadavers.

    Somnophiliacs generally fall into a pattern where they procure drugs and have sex with partners when they’re unconscious, Kerner says — a habit that lines up with accusations Cosby has faced.

    Many have alleged that Cosby spiked their drinks, leaving them unconscious or semi-unconscious.

    One accuser, former actress, publicist, and journalist Joan Tarshis, wrote an essay on the website Hollywood Elsewhere last year detailing the alleged assault. Tarshis says it occurred when she was 19, after Cosby gave her a drink at his cottage in Universal Studios when they were dining alone together.

    “The next thing I remember was coming to on his couch while being undressed,” she wrote. “Through the haze I thought I was being clever when I told him I had an infection and he would catch it and his wife would know he had sex with someone. But he just found another orifice to use. I was sickened by what was happening to me and shocked that this man I had idolized was now raping me. Of course I told no one.”

    Supermodel Janice Dickinson also came forward last year to accuse Cosby of drugging and raping her in 1982. In May, she took legal action, suing Cosby for defamation after his lawyers accused her of lying about the alleged assault.

    Cosby has never been charged with a crime and has denied the allegations from more than a dozen women that he drugged and sexually assaulted them.

    Experts say somnophilia isn’t a fetish that develops overnight.

    In fact, it is thought to begin during childhood. During that time, Van Kirk says, “somehow the person’s erotic template (i.e., what a person finds arousing) has become imprinted with the desire to exert power over another.” That can then lead to somnophilia, which remains dormant until a person reaches puberty.

    Kerner stresses that somnophilia shouldn’t be confused with sleep fantasies (a common fantasy in which a person is aroused by the concept of having sex with a person who is sleeping). If a person has a sleep fantasy, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re a somnophiliac. “There’s a difference between having a fantasy versus actually having a nonconsensual sex partner,” he says.

    While there are treatments for somnophilia, Kerner admits that they’re “largely unsuccessful.”

    However, there are different approaches to treating the condition. Psychotherapy is one option, he says. That approach often tries to discover the root of the somnophilia and work to change the pattern of becoming aroused by a sleeping person.

    Another is cognitive behavioral therapy. “That’s like saying, ‘Any time you think of getting sexually aroused with a sleeping woman, I want you to think about having sex with your sleeping grandmother,’” Kerner says. “You try to counter the arousal with repulsion to interrupt the arousal pattern.”

    Some people also try hypnotherapy (which Van Kirk says has “mixed results”) or drugs that lower their sexual desire, since, Kerner notes, many fetishists are so distressed by their desires that they would rather give up their sex drive altogether than give in to them.

    Treatments for somnophilia should be undertaken with caution, says Van Kirk. “Since most somnophilia is considered a predatory paraphilia, special care is taken to reduce any chance of victimization,” she says.

    Unfortunately, experts say there’s a lot we still don’t know about somnophilia and fetishes in general. “We just don’t have a lot of answers around them right now,” Kerner says.

    I think it's simply that he wanted to fuck women on the side without them running their mouths to the press or his wife.
