Janice Dickinson described her alleged encounter with Bill Cosby in a recent interview.
The 59-year-old former model claims that the incident took place shortly after a dinner that she had with Bill Cosby in Lake Tahoe back in 1982.
In the interview, Dickinson claims she told Bill Cosby about the discomfort that she was experiencing from her menstrual cramps. She alleges that the Cosby Show star offered her a pill that she did not recognize to relieve the pain, which she took without hesitation or even questioning since she trusted him.
When asked by Whitfield why she trusted Bill Cosby so much, Janice Dickinson stated that his overall demeanor as well as her own career ambitions had a lot to do with it.
“Because of his demeanor and the promise of his career… I wanted a television career… I had a successful career in commercials. I wanted to take it to the next level.”
Janice Dickinson further claimed that she did not remember much else from that night, especially since she blacked out shortly after taking pictures of Bill Cosby with her Polaroid camera. Dickinson explained to Whitfield that she did, however, remember Bill Cosby “mounting” her.
The former America’s Next Top Model judge also explained the aftermath of the alleged assault, including exactly how she physically felt the next morning.
“There was a lot of pain downstairs. There was semen all over me and my pajama bottoms were off and my top was open. At that point, fight or flight, I just packed up and got the hell out of there.”
Towards the end of the interview, Whitfield asked Janice Dickinson exactly what she would want Bill Cosby to do or say right now in response to her graphic allegations.
Before becoming overwhelmed with emotions on camera and sobbing, Janice stated that she would at least like Bill Cosby to come out and acknowledge that he is a pig and a monster in addition to confirming that he raped her.
