More and more women in and out of Hollywood are coming forward with allegations against Bill Cosby of everything from inappropriate behavior and touching to rape.
Michelle Hurd, a prolific actress perhaps best-known for her role on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” posted her personal account and accusations Thursday evening on her Facebook page. Hurd's words were first posted in the media by Showbiz411.com.
A representative for Hurd has not yet responded to TheWrap‘s request for comment.
Hurd's story begins when she was doing stand-in work on “The Cosby Show.” According to the actress, her relationship with Cosby started out innocently enough, with the two eating lunch together every day in his dressing room. The sitcom star then escalated it through what Hurd remembered as “weird acting exercises [where] he would move his hands up and down my body.”

“I was instructed to NEVER tell anyone what we did together,” she wrote, explaining that Cosby told her others would be jealous.
“I dodged the ultimate bullet with him when he asked me to come to his house, take a shower so we could blow dry my hair and see what it looked like straightened,” Hurd continued. “At that point my own red flags went off and I told him, ‘No, I'll just come to work tomorrow with my hair straightened.'”
Hurd added that later, she and another stand-in swapped creepy Cosby stories that were virtually identical. However, Hurd's friend's tale went further, the actress wrote, without identifying the “Cosby” colleague in question.
“She awoke, after being drugged, vomited, and then Cosby told her there's a cab waiting for you outside,” Hurd penned.

Here is what Hurd posted in its entirety:
LOOK, I wasn't going to say anything, but I can't believe some of the things i've been reading, SO here is MY personal experience:
I did stand-in work on The Cosby show back in the day and YES, Bill Cosby was VERY inappropriate with me. It started innocently, lunch in his dressing room, daily, then onto weird acting exercises were he would move his hands up and down my body, (can't believe I fell for that) I was instructed to NEVER tell anyone what we did together, (he said other actors would become jealous) and then fortunately, I dodged the ultimate bullet with him when he asked me to come to his house, take a shower so we could blow dry my hair and see what it looked like straightened. At that point my own red flags went off and I told him,
“No, I'll just come to work tomorrow with my hair straightened”.
I then started to take notice and found another actress, a stand-in as well, and we started talking….. A LOT …. turns out he was doing the same thing to her, almost by the numbers, BUT, she did go to his house and because I will not name her, and it is her story to tell, all I'll say is she awoke, after being drugged, vomited, and then Cosby told her there's a cab waiting for you outside.
I have ABSOLUTELY no reason to lie or make up this up!
Anyone that knows me, knows that!
Now you have a first hand account of my experience with Mr. Cosby.
Off you go…
