An ex-NBC employee named Frank Scotti told the New York Daily News in an exclusive interview this week that he would guard Bill Cosby's dressing room while the comedian brought young models, some as young as 16, into his dressing room. Cosby claimed he was interviewing them for the show.
Scotti says that in the years he worked for NBC during The Cosby Show's 1984-92 run, he paid out money orders to eight women, including Shawn Thompson, after Cosby gave him the cash to do so. At one point, Cosby asked Scotti to call up Donald Trump's brother to get an apartment for one of his women. Cosby had Scotti do his monthly money payouts up to $2,000 each to women the comedian was allegedly sleeping with, and Scotti held on to the money order receipts.

Scotti, who lives in Lakewood, N.J., saved copies of money orders from the era detailing his payouts to four of the Cosby women.
He recalled Cosby presenting him with "a satchel of money, all $100 bills," and pressing Scotti to distribute the payments using money orders in his own name.
"I did a lot of crazy things for him," recalled Scotti. "He was covering himself by having my name on it. It was a coverup. I realized it later."
When Cosby brought women to his dressing room, sometimes directly farmed from a modeling agency, he would allegedly tell Scotti, "Stand outside the door and don't let anyone in."
