THE BRONX - An advocate for women allegedly sexually abused by Bill Cosby is letting her voice be heard right in the Bronx on a slightly different matter. 

Helen Gumpel was an actress on "The Cosby Show," and she claims that Cosby tried to lure her into a dressing room to perform sexual acts. 

She appeared in the Bronx Friday to draw attention to the alleged sexual abuse of her husband. Grumpel says a deceased Jesuit priest and professor at Fordham University abused him when he was a minor. 

The Grumpels say that the school has refused to acknowledge and bear responsibility for the allegations.
