Awkward Bill Cosby encounter revealed in ‘Hot Pants’ memoir – Page Six

Susan Silver, one of the first female TV comedy writers, went to school with Jim Morrison, appeared in a movie with Elvis Presley, and was set up on a date with Lenny Bruce.

But the story she told at Michael’s to debut her memoir, “Hot Pants in Hollywood,” was about the time Bill Cosby gave her a ride home in his “little, green sports car.”

Silver told Estée Lauder exec John Demsey, former congressman John LeBoutillier, TV reporter Diane Dimond and Clinton chronicler Ed Klein that Cosby spotted her at a taping of “Hootenanny” in the early ’60s.

“When we got to my apartment building, he lunged at me, and, in a Lucille Ball effort to escape, I opened the door and fell out of the car and was on the curb with my legs up in the air,” Silver said. “Then, he closed the door and left. Thank God!”

Cosby, 79, is set to go on trial June 5 on charges of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand at his Pennsylvania home in 2004.

It’s the only criminal case that has resulted from dozens of allegations spanning decades — all of which Cosby has denied.
