  • Bill Cosby Admits to Giving Quaaludes to Woman, Seeking the Drug for Others, Court Documents Say

    Jemal Countess/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Embattled TV superstar Bill Cosby admitted to giving a woman Quaaludes and said that he obtained the drugs with the idea that he would give them to women he wanted to have sex with, according to court filings released Monday.

    In the 2005 filing, part of a civil case, Cosby, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by dozens of women, said that he obtained seven prescriptions for the drugs and answered "yes" when asked if he got them with the intent of giving them to women with whom he wanted to have sex.

    The documents cite a deposition that Cosby gave in the case on Sept. 27 and 28, 2005, and quotes from it.

    In the filings, which the Associated Press pushed to release, Cosby admits to giving the drug to one woman who he met in Las Vegas. It was not clear when the alleged meeting took place, and the woman is not the same person who filed the suit.

    "She meets me back stage," he allegedly said. "I give her Quaaludes. We then have sex."

    According to the filing, Cosby's lawyer, Patrick O'Connor, said the Cosby Show star got the drugs in the '70s and suggested that he may have kept them for decades after that.

    O'Connor would not allow Cosby to say whether he gave the drug to "other people."

    The sexual abuse lawsuit was settled in 2006 for undisclosed terms.

    Cosby has never been charged with a crime in connection to the accusations of drugging and sexual assault, and his lawyers have denied the allegations.

    Lawyer Gloria Allred, who represents several of the women who have accused Cosby, applauded the release.

    "This admission is one that Mr. Cosby has attempted to hide from the public for many years and we are very gratified that it is now being made public," she said in a statement.

    A statement obtained exclusively by ABC News from the Cosby camp Monday night reads, "The only reason Mr. Cosby settled was because it would have been embarrassing in those days to put all those women on the stand and [his] family had no clue.  That would have been very hurtful."

  • "The Bachelorette" Recap: Shawn B. Finds Out About Kaitlyn's Night with Nick

    ABC/Clodagh Kilcoyne(NEW YORK) -- Monday night on ABC's The Bachelorette, Kaitlyn Bristowe confessed to Shawn B. that she slept with Nick Viall...and he didn't take the news too well.

    Though Shawn remained committed to his relationship with Kaitlyn, he also couldn't get the Nick situation off his mind. He decided to confront Nick, accusing him of being manipulative and arrogant. The episode ended with a heated argument between the two that will resume next week.

    Kaitlyn's adventures in Ireland continued Monday night in Killarney, where she had a one-on-one date with Ben H. They rowed a boat to Innisfallen Island. He suggested a game of hide-and-seek amid the ruins of Innisfallen Abbey as a way to cheer up Kaitlyn after she cut loose Chris "Cupcake" at the end of last week's episode.

    Ben expressed concern that he was "unlovable," but Kaitlyn assured him that is not the case. Things turned a bit awkward when he told Kaitlyn he'd love to join her in the fantasy suite so they can talk all night. She reacted by asking whether he's a virgin. Ben's answer: No.

    Kaitlyn invited Nick, Shawn B. and Joe on the group date to Killarney National Park. In a private moment, Joe let Kaitlyn know that he loved her. Unfortunately, she didn't feel the same way about him, admitting that they're "not on the same page." She sent him home.

    She returned to the other two men, telling Nick that she'd see him at the rose ceremony and asking Shawn to spend more time with her later on. When she reconnected with Shawn, she spilled the beans about having sex with Nick back in Dublin.

    At first, Shawn was stunned, saying, "I don't even know what to think." He stepped out to collect himself, and when he rejoined Kaitlyn, he suggested that he wanted to look past the incident. "I can't be mad," he said.

    But away from Kaitlyn, Shawn expressed disappointment, repeatedly referring to Nick as "the other guy."

    Still having doubts, Shawn pulled Kaitlyn aside when she attempted to give him a rose at the rose ceremony. He asked her why she would do something that would put their romance in jeopardy. She stressed that while she went too far with Nick, she was there to explore relationships with more than one guy. She also said that telling Shawn he was "the one" earlier in the competition was a mistake.

    Back at the ceremony, Shawn accepted the rose. Jared was eliminated, and was very gracious about it.

    Kaitlyn's first overnight date was with Nick, in Cork. They visited a church and afterward mingled with some locals over drinks. The two then went to an old jail, where Nick took jabs at Shawn, saying he doesn't respect people "who brag about being 'Eskimo brothers' with famous country singers because they both f***ed the same girl the same night, but they were first."

    Kaitlyn immediately replied, "Ew."

    Once the unpleasantness was over with, Kaitlyn invited Nick to the fantasy suite. Not surprisingly, he said yes. But after leaving the suite and parting ways with Kaitlyn, Shawn paid him a visit and made it clear that he doesn't like Nick.

    As the credits rolled, the show provided an update on Britt Nilsson and Brady Toops. He was headed back to Nashville, so they were going to try to maintain a long-distance relationship.
