(NEWSER) – The sex assault accusations against Bill Cosby keep snowballing.

After a week in which the comedian saw his Twitter meme fail spectacularly and one of his more vocal accusers, Barbara Bowman, hit the media circuit, a new accuser has come forward. Jeffrey Wells at Hollywood Elsewhere says "old friend [and] journalist" Joan Tarshis revealed her own alleged experiences with Cosby in 1969, when she was just 19 years old. She tells Wells that the comedian drugged and sexually assaulted her on two separate occasions and that even though Cosby didn't drink himself, he always made her a "redeye" (a Bloody Mary topped with beer); in one instance after she drank one, she says she woke up naked in his hotel bed; another time she says she woke up as she was being undressed and was subsequently raped.
