George Lopez is the latest "friend" of Bill Cosby's to come forward with an anecdote of the fallen TV star's dirty dog ways. During a visit to the Howard Stern Show on Tuesday, Lopez recounted the time Cosby gave him some strange advice about seducing women and oral sex. The sitcom star says Cosby gave him the unsolicited advice during a conversation in 2012, when Lopez took over emcee duties from Cosby at the Playboy Jazz Festival.
“It possibly could be one of the worst-kept f**king secrets,” Lopez told Howard Stern about Cosby’s reputation as a player. “It’s like in the ‘70s, you go, ‘Elton John’s gay? Wait a minute — I just thought he was flamboyant.’”
Allegedly, Cosby called him soon after he agreed to the Playboy gig and the conversation quickly turned from the festival to how to pick up women. “He says, you know, like, ‘If you meet a lady, man, put her in the audience. Don’t bring her backstage,’” Lopez said, doing his best Cosby impression for maximum effect.
“If you want to get blown, keep her out there ... None of it had anything to do with jazz, by the way,” he continued, adding that the 45-minute call consisted of five minutes of conversation about jazz and the rest about “eating a**.”
As creepy and lascivious as this story is, Cosby's reputation with women — and his Hollywood cohorts' willingness to stay silent about it — is no laughing matter. Of course, the Cosby Show star is now facing criminal charges and multiple lawsuits for his activities — including one from Janice Dickinson, which a judge just ruled can move forward — and has dragged his wife into the mess.
