Bill Cosby May Have to Finally Address His Rape Allegations

It’s taken a very long time, but one of America’s most beloved personalities may have to finally address the ugliest chapter in his history: numerous allegations of sexual abuse. Three women—Barbara Bowman, Tamara Green and Andrea Constand—have gone public with stories about their alleged abuse at Cosby’s hands.
