Chelsea Handler Recounts Cosby Experience

LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Comedian Chelsea Handler recently related her own "weird" experience with Bill Cosby in a recent interview with Esquire magazine, where Handler said he "tried to Cosby me."

In the interview, Handler recounted a story where she had been doing stand-up in Atlantic City at a hotel where Cosby was staying and said that a member of the hotel staff told her 'Mr. Cosby would really like to meet you up in his hotel suite.'

"I thought, 'That's really weird.' This was like ten years ago. And I said, 'That's really weird. I don't want to go alone.' I go, 'I don't know him,'" Handler told Esquire.

She ended up brining several friends with her for the meeting.

"So the three guys I was with– thank God these guys were with me. One was filming and one was like a producer; we were filming something — I brought them up with me to his room and thank God I did, because now I know what would've happened if I went up there alone," Handler told the magazine.

"And I forgot about it when all the stories about Bill Cosby came out," she continued. "I was like, 'I didn't even think of it.' Then my friend texted me the other day saying, 'Do you remember that night we went up to, or that afternoon we went up to Bill Cosby's and you were so freaked out you made us come with you?' And I said, 'Yeah,' and he said, 'Hello! You could've been one of his victims if we weren't there.' And I went, 'Oh my gosh …' Yeah, so yeah, he's guilty." – Staff Writers
