Janice Dickinson is known for her brash honesty, and now the name Janice Dickinson has joined a list of other women — including Tamara Green, reports the Inquisitr — in accusing Bill Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting them.
The 59-year-old Dickinson says that she once dined with Cosby in Lake Tahoe under the guise that the legendary comedian would help Janice launch a singing career. When Janice complained of cramps, Dickinson says Cosby gave her wine and a pill that made her pass out.
“The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man. Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me. And I remember a lot of pain. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs.”
Janice gave her interview to ET in response to Cosby’s lawyer stating that Dickinson accusing Bill Cosby of rape was a lie.
Along with the Janice Dickinson assertions, another big story about the Cosby saga hitting the web on Thursday is the Associated Press interview with Bill and Camille Cosby, taped on November 6, prior to Janice Dickinson telling ET her story.
In the video of Bill and Camille Cosby talking to the Associated Press, Cosby gets defensive when reporter Brett Zongker mentions the rape accusations, not even mentioning names like Janice Dickinson nor Therese Serignese, Cosby’s latest accuser, according to People.
“No, no, no, we don’t answer that. There’s no response. There’s no comment about that and I tell you why: I think you were told — I don’t want to compromise your integrity — but I don’t talk about it. Now can I get something from you? That none of that will be shown? I know I didn’t say anything, but I’m asking for your integrity … I did answer you …”
Prior to the scathing Janice Dickinson story being added to additional horrid experiences being described by Cosby’s accusers, Cosby tried to have the AP kill the above linked-to video.
“What value will it have? I would appreciate if it was scuttled. I think if you want to consider yourself to be serious that it will not appear anywhere. And we thought by the way, because it was the AP, that it wouldn’t be necessary to go over that question. If you will just tell your boss that the reason why we didn’t say anything up front is that we thought that the AP had the integrity to not ask.”
At the end of the interview, it appears that Bill Cosby threatens to get the AP reporter’s boss on the phone.
“I think you need to get on the phone with his person immediately.”
As of November 20, Cosby’s planned NBC and Netflix projects have been scuttled, along with The Cosby Show reruns, reports USA Today, as Janice Dickinson explains when she tried to tell her story earlier, Cosby’s lawyers pressured her to delete what Janice wrote about him.
“Bill Cosby was the only guy I couldn’t write about in the book.”
