Be prepared to step into the twilight zone. As we reported earlier a protester was detained for charging at Bill Cosby while topless. The twist in this episode is that the young topless woman is an actress who appeared in four episodes of “The Cosby Show.”
According to Page Six reports, Rochelle appeared alongside Cosby in minor roles on “The Cosby Show” between 1990 and 1992 (pics below). Her stage name at the time was Nicole Leach. She also appeared on “Chappelle’s Show,” “Law & Order” and “NYPD Blue” in small roles according to her IMDb page.
So, was this a publicity stunt for her career or is she really that passionate about seeing Cosby face justice? We guess only time will tell. The former actress faces no jail time but could be fined. Here are some pictures of her appearance on the Cosby show:
