Janice Dickinson: Bill Cosby Is "A Pig, A Monster, and He Raped Me"
A month after telling Entertainment Tonight that Bill Cosby raped her, Janice Dickinson appeared on CNN last night and recounted the 1982 night she was allegedly assaulted by the comedian in a Lake Tahoe, Ca. hotel room.
Dickinson, in a story that echoes the other women who have come forward accusing Cosby of sexual assault, agreed to a dinner invitation with Cosby. The comedian's musical director, Stu Gardner, also attended. After Gardner left the room, Dickinson complained of menstrual cramps. Cosby apparently replied, "Oh, I've got something for that."
The comedian then allegedly offered Dickinson a pill, and a glass of red wine—at the time, Dickinson had just left rehab for alcohol addiction. As she began to blackout, Dickinson told CNN, she started taking photos of Cosby with her Polaroid camera; those photos have since surfaced on TMZ.
"The last thing I remember I had blacked out and Cosby mounting me like the monster that he was," Dickinson told CNN. "I remember more specifically waking up and that he—there was a lot of pain...downstairs. There was semen all over me and my pajama bottoms were off."
Dickinson explained why she held back telling her story for more than 30 years, telling CNN's Fredricka Whitfield, "I stuffed it. I compartmentalized it because I was embarrassed."
Whitfield ended the interview by asking Dickinson, "What do you want from Bill Cosby right now? What do you need to hear from him? What does he need to do?" Dickinson responded, before breaking down into tears, "I would like Cosby to come out and at least acknowledge that he is a pig, that he is a monster, and he raped me."
