The circle of women accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault is widening. Former model Janice Dickinson, (pictured) who says the comedian assaulted her when she was in her 20s, retold the story in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight.
Fifty-nine-year-old Dickinson told the celebrity entertainment outlet, among other things, that the comedian befriended her, offering career help when she was in her 20s, and then allegedly betrayed her by drugging her and taking advantage of her in Lake Tahoe.
“After dinner, in my room, he had given me wine and a pill. 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,” Dickinson said.

Dickinson, who calls herself the “world’s first supermodel,” first told her story in 2006 while promoting her third book, Check Please! Dating, Mating and Extricating. But the story gained little traction at the time. Now, the comedian’s once-venerable image is starting to show some wear as he battles accusations of rape and sex assault by more than a dozen women.
His lawyer on Sunday released a statement saying the veteran comedian would not dignify “decade-old, discredited” claims of sexual abuse with a response. The statement came after he was forced to remove #CosbyMeme, a meme generator that asked people to write text over his an image. And boy did they ever, including writing wild allegations of sex assault and rape.
After the meme debacle, Cosby refused to address the allegations on NPR and he also canceled an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman.
But as more women come forward with allegations, Cosby may soon be forced to respond.
