19 And Counting: Bill Cosby Faces Allegations From More Women

19 And Counting: Bill Cosby Faces Allegations From More Women

It is now 19 women and counting in the Bill Cosby scandal.

Former actress Angela Leslie says she sent Cosby a photo in 1992 asking if she could audition for a role in his movie Ghost Dad.

She told INSIDE EDITION, "He invited me into his room, we started off talking about acting."

Much to her surprise, she says Cosby responded and invited her to fly to Las Vegas to meet him. She went to his hotel suite where she says he offered her a drink.

She said, "It was a very strong drink and I took the very slightest sip and I just couldn't drink it. I was scared and wondering, 'What is he thinking? What is he going to try and do next?' Actually, he did try to get on top of me later and I was able to push him off. He kind of stumbled onto the floor and I managed to get up."

Kristina Ruehli is also coming forward to claim that Cosby tried to sexually assault her in 1965 when he was starring in the TV series I Spy and she was a secretary. She says Cosby invited her to a party at his home; it turned out there was no party. She says he gave her a mickey and she passed out.

She told INSIDE EDITION's Diane McInerney, "The first thing that hit me was I was on a bed, he was naked, but more than that I was sick. I was like, 'Oh my God, I have got to go.' I bolted for the bathroom."

When she came out of the bathroom, she says Cosby was nowhere to be seen so she got in her car and left.

She said, “I realized as I drove home, ‘Wow, you really dodged some sort of bullet, what happened?’”

INSIDE EDITION brought Angela Leslie and Kristina Rheuli together. Until that moment, they had never met.

Ruehli told Leslie, "I don't know when you came forward, whether it was before or after I did. I came forward, I think it was Thursday, last week."

Leslie said, "We both escaped."  

Two women from different generations, who both claim they were victims of Bill Cosby.

In a statement Cosby's attorney denies the allegations calling them ridiculous and unsubstantiated.
