A 2003 interview featuring Bill Cosby and Sofia Vergara has emerged. We don’t exactly know why this awkward footage has been released or how it went viral, but seeing as another two women have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct, viewing this interview just makes things more uncomfortable.
In the interview, Cosby is sitting in for David Letterman, who was out that week due to health reasons. Instead of sitting behind the desk, Cosby decided to sit next to Sofia Vergara. The comedian, who has been stripped of many honors and titles in recent months, walked Sofia out and ogled the actress, while making comments about her dress.
Then, he mocked her Spanish accent and said, “You make me feel young again. You make me feel very, um, excited. Look at me.”
Another doozy that came out of the very suggestive interview is when Cosby called Vergara “sin.” “Men look at you, and they only think of sin… Now what you have on tonight is wonderful. This is wonderful. And when you walked out, many, uh, many people became attentive.” He also explained that he would die from the thoughts he had in his head about her.
Vergara, who takes it all in stride, laughs off his comments and plays into it, but given the alleged predatory history that’s been revealed about Bill Cosby, it definitely gives pause over the situation.
When this first started circulating, a Spanish radio station claimed that she was one of Cosby’s latest victims. Vergara quickly denied the claim and tweeted in Spanish, which translated to English reads, “Respect people. Stop making up nonsense.”

Back in 2005, Bill Cosby admitted to obtaining a drug to give to women with the intention of having sex with him, but he still denies any and all rape claims.

As the Inquisitr reported, two more woman came forward to allege that they were raped by the comedian. One woman from Pennsylvania said that he sexually assaulted her in 2004 while she was at a track meet. The other woman claimed that he had sexually assaulted her during an audition for his show The Cosby Show back in 1984. The latter story is very similar from dozens of stories from women that have come forward in the recent months.
Donna Barrett, the girl who alleges she was assaulted by Cosby at a track meet, said that Cosby grabbed her from behind and pulled her against his body, specifically his groin area, and said, “Hey back that thing up here, girl, back it on up!” She continued and said that she tried to cry for help, but no one came to her defense, mainly because no one knew what to do as Cosby allegedly pinned himself to her. Of the instance, she said, “He had me locked down against his body without my consent or desire.”
This was a year after the Sofia Vergara interview took place. It’s said that a possible criminal investigation concerning this particular event might come to fruition.

As for the other woman, she said that when she arrived for her audition with Bill Cosby, Cosby greeted her and offered her a drink. Dotye claims that after ingesting the drink she became confused and threw up, and said that Cosby “helped” her take off her clothing to wash them, and had raped her a series of times throughout the meeting.
Of the incident, Dotye said, “I couldn’t believe the man I respected as an actor and educator was doing this to me. I couldn’t understand why I could not, did not, fight him off. I could not believe what was happening to me.”
