Bill Cosby Raped Janice Dickinson Too, Allegedly

On Tuesday, Janice Dickinson went public with allegations that she too was raped by Bill Cosby. In an interview with ET, she says it happened in 1982. It all began when her agent set her up with a meeting with Cosby for a role on The Cosby Show. That seemed to go well.

The next time they had contact was when she was in rehab for drugs and alcohol. Cosby invited her to a show in Lake Tahoe where he was going to offer her the job they talked about and to help with her singing career. They had dinner in Lake Tahoe where Cosby gave her a glass of red wine and a pill. Dickinson had asked for one for her cramps. The pill wasn’t for her cramps. It was for the raping that would later occur.

“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,” she tells ET. “… 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.”

Dickinson tried to include the assault in her 2002 autobiography but Cosby and his lawyers pressured her and the publisher to take it out.

“I’m doing this because it’s the right thing to do, and it happened to me, and this is the true story,” she says about coming out with her story now. “I believe all the other women.”

“Stuffing feelings of rape and my unresolved issued with this incident has drove me into a life of trying to hurt myself because I didn’t have counsel and I was afraid,” she says. “I was afraid of the consequences. I was afraid of being labeled a whore or a slut and trying to sleep my way to the top of a career that never took place.”

She has never confronted Cosby, but she’s seem to have found the right words to say to him.

“How dare you,” she says. “Go f*ck yourself. How dare you take advantage of me. And I hope you rot.”

Bill Cosby has smartly opted not to talk about the allegations. He’s just going to pretend they don’t exist. Cosby firmly believes in the old saying, “If a famous comedian rapes numerous women but he doesn’t admit to it, did it really happen?”
