“Look me in the eyes. Do you remember me? Do you remember me?” she asked

Thomas is the latest in a slew of accusers say that Cosby sexually assaulted her. The latest accuser shared details of her assault, as seen on MSN.
Thomas accused that Cosby assaulted her in 1984 in Reno, Nevada. The once aspiring actress was “instructed by her agency to visit Cosby… so he could give her pointers on acting.”
Cosby was doing his comedy act at Harrah’s Hotel and Casino in Reno and was, according to CNN, “looking for young talent he could mentor.” As Cosby and his accuser met back in 1984, she read a monologue for him once before he “told her to do a read as a drunk person.”
Cosby reportedly told his accuser, “How are you ever going to play an intoxicated person… if you’ve never been drunk?”
Cosby then poured Thomas a drink, and at that point, Cosby’s latest accuser says she became “foggy.”
When Thomas woke up, she found herself in bed with Cosby. Cosby’s accuser then said that the comedian was “forcing himself in my mouth.” Thomas admits to “feeling like she wanted to throw up.”
Thomas got away, although she saw Cosby at his show in St. Louis some months later. Cosby and his accuser never spoke fully of the incident then, but Thomas says her parents had known that something had happened to her on that trip.
Thomas’ mother remembered her daughter telling her, “I did something wrong and… I got away and slammed the door.”
The latest accuser says she has her parents to thank for “compelling her to go public” after an incident that happened 30 years ago.
Thomas stated, “I finally find out that she knows, that Dad knows, that they are supporting me if I want to go public… Then it became full steam ahead, I want to empower people.”
Thomas, who was 24-years-old at the time, joins a long list of accusers, including models Beverly Johnson and Janice Dickinson.
When asked to comment on yet another accuser, Cosby’s attorney refers to all the accusations as “unsubstantiated, fantastical stories” that have gone “far past the point of absurdity.”
