THURSDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2014 POST REGISTER A 2 people talk LOS ANGELES (AP) — A lawsuit by a woman who claims Bill Cosby molested her when she was 15 years old has moved allegations of sexual misconduct against the comedian from the court of public opinion into the court- house. Judy Huth ’s lawsuit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles accuses Cosby of forcing her to perform a sex act on him in a bedroom of the Playboy Mansion around 1974. She is the latest woman to accuse the come- dian of sex abuse, and is the first one since 2005 to file a lawsuit. Cosby has been beset for weeks by allegations by more than a dozen women that he drugged and sexually assaulted them in incidents spanning several decades. The comedian has not been criminally charged and many of the claims are so old, they are barred by statutes of lim- itations. Johansson weds in Mont. PHILIPS- BURG, Mont.

(AP) — Carrie Underwood donned more than 10 different dresses for this year’s CMA Awards, but when it’s time to get sweaty in the gym, the country star was at a loss for what to wear. “I consider myself to be a pretty hard worker in the gym,” said Underwood, who is expecting her first child in the spring. “The high performance things aren’t pretty. And then the super pretty things don’t last a long time or don’t do what I need them to do. So there is a big gap.” Now she’s launching her own line of athletic wear with DICK’S Sporting Goods, called Calia by Carrie Underwood, which matches up her love of fashion and fitness. Underwood’s new venture makes her the latest country musician to dabble in fashion. Her CMA Awards co-host Brad Paisley partnered with Boot Barn this month to release a line of clothes called Moonshine Spirit, featuring jeans, boots, cowboy hats and T-shirts for young men, which he describes as the perfect outfit for attending a country concert. today’s quiz Isaac Asimov’s Super Quiz Subject: GEOGRAPHY (e.g., Which continent boasts the world’s largest island?
