Kathie Lee Gifford has become the newest name on the ever-growing list of women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual misconduct.

Gifford says Cosby tried to kiss her while she his opening act on a comedy tour in the late 70s:

“I will admit, toward the very, very end of the last time I saw him, he did try to kiss me,” Gifford revealed on her show.

“I said, ‘Bill, no, we’re friends,’ and he said, ‘OK, goodnight.'”

Gifford’s story isn’t as shocking as those of the alleged victims who came before her, but she points out a similarity between her own experiences and Beverly Johnson’s accusations against Cosby:

“Every night we’d come off stage and Bill would be going on stage, and he would have made cappuccinos for all three of us,” Gifford said.

“And I always thought it was such a kindness and so sweet and now you see Beverly Johnson saying he made her a cappuccino.”

Johnson says Cosby drugged her cappuccino as part of an attempt to rape her.

Gifford made her revelation on the Today show this morning. The night before, an unidentified woman claimed that Cosby drugged her and licked her toes during a party at the Playboy Mansion in 2008.
