It is with great regret I report that The House Bunny is their Cymbeline.

Los Angeles police presented a case to prosecutors Wednesday involving a 24-year-old woman who claims Cosby assaulted her in 2008. The Los Angeles review comes as the clock ticks on a decade-old case in Montgomery County. District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman has neither confirmed nor denied that she is revisiting allegations from a former Temple University employee that Cosby, 78, drugged and molested her in Montgomery County in 2004.
