Anche dopo il controverso rilascio dalla prigione di Bill Cosby nel giugno 2021, la star caduta in disgrazia stava ancora combattendo battaglie legali per precedenti accuse di aggressione sessuale. A giugno, una donna di nome Judy Huth ha ricevuto $ 500.000 di danni, per Variety, dopo che una giuria ha ritenuto Cosby colpevole di aggressione quando era minorenne.

Garcelle Beauvais hopes others see her Bill Cosby story as a cautionary tale

On August 3's episode of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" (via Page Six), Garcelle Beauvais shared the anxiety she experienced over recounting her scary encounter with Bill Cosby in the memoir, "Love Me As I Am." Admitting to co-star Dorit Kemsley that these were "stories that I've never told," Beauvais also shared, "I'm a little scared." Although Kemsley was supportive of her friend's candor on such an important topic, Beauvais was worried her recollections would "shock people." 

On the "Bevelations" SiriusXM show in May, Beauvais revealed that her sons, Oliver, Jax, and Jaid, were a primary reason she didn't come forward sooner with the revelation. "My kids were little and my divorce [was happening at the time], I didn't want to drag them into it," Beauvais told host Bevy Smith. The "Coming to America" actor also experienced some initial self-doubt, not knowing if she had "anything concrete." Not wanting to distract from the dozens of women who spoke out against Cosby in the mid-2010s, Beauvais also didn't want the misconception that she was "just piling on and 'oh, I just wanted to be part of that and have my name out there.'" Ultimately, her inclusion of her own Cosby experience was borne out of a desire to encourage "listening to your gut" in such scenarios.
