Donna Motsinger, 73, of Taos, New Mexico has revealed that she was one of the 12 anonymous women who testified against Bill Cosby in the civil rape lawsuit filed by Andrea Constand in 2005.
Motsinger says she was Jane Doe number eight, and she claims she was drugged and raped by the Cosby Show
star at a jazz club in Sausalito, California in 1971. The case against the actor was settled out of court in 2006, but after Cosby was back in the news this month, a number of women from the lawsuit have come forward.
Motsinger tells the New York Post
"I feel guilty not telling my story. I’m a coward over here. Those women are brave. It’s the least I can do. I want to tell people so [the victims] can’t be bullied, so they can’t be discredited."
Barbara Bowman, who also appeared as a witness in Constand's case, wrote an op-ed piece in the Washington Post
earlier this month about her ordeal, and shortly after that, former publicist Joan Tarshis came forward and revealed that the former comedian assaulted her on two occasions in 1969. Former supermodel Janice Dickinson appeared on Entertainment Tonight
last week and alleged that Cosby drugged raped her in 1982, and Renita Chaney Hill, Angela Leslie and Kristina Ruehli also came forward this week.
But despite all these women's statements, Cosby insists that he's innocent. His attorney, Marty Singer, told CNN
on November 21, "The new, never-before-heard claims from women who have come forward in the past two weeks with unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago have escalated far past the point of absurdity."
For the record, when we polled our X17 readers last week, a whopping 73% of you think he's guilty...
Do YOU think Bill Cosby's guilty?

Her body is banging!
Khloe Kardashian headed to her daily gym session yesterday in L.A., and we don't think the reality star realized her leggings were totally see thru, but it's not like we're complaining! French Montana's lady love has a better backside than her sister Kimmy K!
With a figure this hot, it makes no sense to us why she's dating the "Don't Panic" rapper. She could do so much better! Although, the E! starlet might ditch her beau after she catches wind of his recent comments, in which he emphatically stated that he would never sign a prenup if they were going to get married.
She's a catch with a good personality and a super nice tush!

Eva Mendes, who gave birth to her daughter Esmerelda Amada Gosling, in September is finally breaking her silence on motherhood, her daughter's unusual name and her secretive pregnancy.
"I thought my wild nights were over but these are some of the wildest nights I've ever had,"
Eva revealed to Violet Grey's digital publication, The Violet Files
While many of Hollywood's elite get help from one, two, three and even four nannies -- Ryan Gosling's lady love says the couple are doing it on their own, with help from their families. The new mom does confess she's been exhausted taking care of the wee one. And although she's currently a nanny-free mom, Eva did say she's open to one in the future, but for right now the actress believes the struggle is part of the process of being a mother.
"As far as a nanny or a night nurse, for me that part of being a mother at this early stage is the struggle of not being able to sleep and not knowing what I’m doing and really going through it with her and battling out those nights,"
said the 40-year-old.
The brunette beauty also revealed that thinking of her mother is what keeps her grounded when she feels overwhelmed with her newborn. "I cannot believe that by the time my mother was 24 she had three kids under the age of 4. ... She was in Cuba and totally alone. So when it’s the wee hours of the night and I’m feeling a bit insane, I think about her and realize that I have no right to complain about anything."
The Training Day
star also talked about how she got through her super secret pregnancy, saying, "I have eight nieces and nephews, so my brothers and sisters know a thing or two about what to expect when you’re expecting. I have a very tight-knit family and the pregnancy brought us even closer together."
actress also explained how she and Ryan selected their firstborn's memorable name, "We both love the Esmeralda character from the Victor Hugo novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame and just think it’s a beautiful name."
She added, "Her middle is Amada, which was my grandmother’s name. It means 'beloved' in Spanish."

Lorde appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon
on Tuesday evening, and the 18-year-old New Zealand-born entertainer chatted all about her friendship with Taylor Swift.
So how did the two first come into contact? "She sent me some flowers, which was so nice," Lorde said. "She just sent them to my house and said like, 'Congratulations on everything.' I was like, 'God! I need to know more!'"
"We actually met up here in New York," Lorde continued. "We had Shake Shack, which I feel like is kind of a good bonding … a friendship like bonds with those thick-ass milkshakes." We'd love to know what the ladies chatted about!
So what's T. Swizzle's most endearing quality? "She's really funny and people don't expect it," Lorde said. "It's really dry and you're almost like, 'Wait… did I? Is that what you just… Did that just happen?"
And Taylor is also speaking out about her A-list gal pals! The superstar, who turns 25 next month, covers the new issue of ASOS
and reveals that she's drawn to certain types of people. "My friends are the kind of people that have their own lives, and their own busy schedules, and that’s why we get along so well," she explains. "A lot of 'celebrities' surround themselves with these very chic cling-ons who don’t really have much of a job or a passion, they follow around their celebrity BFF and provide constant affirmation for them and I’m really not interested in that kind of deal." Hmm, wonder who she's taking a jab at here?
Taylor also says that her BFFs influence her fashion. "When I’m getting dressed, it’s always based on what my friend’s will think," she says. "They are my number one priority and the opinions of girls are more important to me at this point in my life."
Wonder what they'll think of these outfits for the mag? They're not her usual style, but maybe they should be?

Katy Perry attended the 2014 ARIA Awards in Sydney, Australia on Wednesday, and the 30-year-old singer wowed in a sexy Jaime Lee two piece outfit. From the see-through side panels to her tiny waist peeking out, it looks like girlfriend has been busting her butt at the gym -- she looks incredible!
Katy was a presenter at the show, and while she was nominated for Best International Artist, she ended up losing that award to the boys of One Direction, all of whom showed up and hit the red carpet. Yup, even Zayn! Though he didn't look too happy about it...
The group performed "Steal My Girl," and after the show Niall Horan tweeted, "Just won an ARIA ! Yes bruu ! thank you to all the Aussie fans for voting for us! Love you!" Liam added, "Thank you so much Australia you guys are amazing another great day and another award huge!!!!!"
While Zayn Malik has been hit with reports that he's abusing drugs, we have to say, he did a pretty good job belting it out onstage:

She may be a grandma, but that's not stopping her from dating men half her age -- or enjoying wild nights out in Hollywood!
Kris Jenner, 59, and new boyfriend Corey Gamble, 33, went to dinner at Craig's in West Hollywood on Tuesday evening, and they were joined by Kyle Richards and Faye Resnick. After dinner, Kris and Corey went to The Nice Guy club, but they only stayed for about 30 minutes, at which point they hit Bootsy Bellows at 11:30pm, where they partied in a private room before leaving at 1:30am.
Kris was in a great mood (and it kills is to say this, but she looked great too!) but Corey seemed a little annoyed. Maybe he's not a Housewives
fan? Or is he getting sick of PMK already?

Two can play at this game!
Ariana Grande took to her Twitter today to respond to Bette Midler's Telegraph
interview, in which the music icon dissed the pop diva and called her a "wh*re" among other things, and the young songstress tried to take the high road while pointing out the hypocrisy of Midler's statements.
"Bette was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgement! not sure where that Bette went but i want that sexy mermaid back!!! always a fan no matter what my love," Grande posted with a photo of Midler in a sexy costume and the caption, "all love here."
In case you missed it, the First Wives Club
star slammed Grande and her fellow pop princesses for using sex to sell music. "It's terrible. It’s always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering around on a couch looking so ridiculous. I mean, it’s silly beyond belief and I don’t know who’s telling her to do it," the 68-year-old sniped to the paper. "I wish they'd stop. I wish they’d stop. But it’s not my business, I’m not her mother. Or her manager. Maybe they tell them that’s what you’ve got to do. Sex sells. Sex has always sold," she added.
"Whatever structures there were have fallen apart. And now it’s whatever you feel like doing you can do. I mean, apparently people really like to pretend they’re having sex. They really like to slap each other’s butts," she continued, acknowledging that maybe she was out of touch with reality. She did have words of wisdom for this generation of performers, though! "Trust your talent. You don’t have to make a wh*re out of yourself to get ahead. You really don’t."
Your move, Bette!

Kim Kardashian is back in black! Trading her nude and white ensembles in for a darker style, Kimbo donned an all-black outfit when she touched down at LAX after her long flight from Dubai.
We have to take issue with this outfit selection. It might be time to have a sit down with Kim and tell her LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS! If she was wearing those cropped leggings to the gym, we'd be fine with it, but not with high heels, a button-down and a trench coat! No -- just no!
Earlier this week, the 34-year-old was in the Middle East (with Khloe's boyfriend French Montana) doing appearances to promote her seventh fragrance Fleur Fatale, which is described as a "beautifully floral and elegant scent."
Amazingly enough -- right after landing, Kim headed straight to Beverly Hills and stopped by famed salon Anastasia for a wax. When a gal needs a wax -- she needs a wax!
Meanwhile, it appears as though Kimmy K is turning the other to the recent rumors claiming that she and Kanye were having some marital problems. Kim's rep told E! that,"there is nothing wrong" and that the latest speculation is "nonsense."
Is Kim wearing black to symbolize the death of Kimye?! We can't wait to find out!
