Supermodel Janice Dickinson: Bill Cosby Sexually Assaulted Me
Former supermodel Janice Dickinson now finds herself at the center of the Bill Cosby scandal.
Dickinson, in a TV interview with Entertainment Tonight said, "He gave me wine and a pill. The next morning I woke up, I wasn't wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man."
Bill Cosby's attorney immediately denied the allegation, calling it, "A complete lie."
He also said, "There is documentary proof that Janice Dickinson is fabricating and lying about Bill Cosby."
Dickinson claims the incident happened in 1982 when she was 27, in Lake Tahoe, Nevada where she was up for a part on the legendary sitcom, The Cosby Show.
"The last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe, and getting on top of me," she said.
Her story is very different from the account the 59-year-old former supermodel gave in her autobiography, No Lifeguard on Duty, published in 2002.
In the book, Dickinson wrote she turned down Cosby, who then became angry.
"He waved both hands in front of my face, silencing me. Then he gave me the dirtiest, meanest look in the world, stepped into his suite, and slammed the door in my face," she wrote.
But in a 2006 interview with Howard Stern, she indicated she never told the real story of what happened for legal reasons.
In the interview Dickinson said, "Bill Cosby was the only one I couldn't write about in the book because HarperCollins was afraid of lawsuits."
Stern asked, "I don't know anything about this, how did it come out?"
Dickinson replied, "The guy's a bad guy, let me just say that. He's not a nice guy. He preys on women that just came out of rehab. I'll just say that."
She says she was too afraid of Cosby to report the incident, and is only speaking out now to support the other women coming forward to denounce Cosby in recent days.
Kevin Frazier of Entertainment Tonight asked Dickinson, "If you could look him in the face, if he was sitting right here, what would you say to Bill Cosby?"
Dickinson reponded, "I would say to you, Bill, how dare you, go (blank) yourself."
Dickinson's credibility has been called into question before. In a 1994 interview, she claimed actor Sylvester Stallone was the father of her baby daughter Savannah.
The interviewer asked, "Is he the father?"
Dickinson replied, "In my heart absolutely he is."
But subsequent DNA tests proved the baby wasn't Stallone's after all.
Now, Dickinson finds herself in the middle of a he-said, she-said battle with Bill Cosby.
INSIDE EDITION's Diane McInerny spoke with HLN anchor Nancy Grace.
McInerny asked, "After listening to her story, do you find her story credible?"
Grace responded, "Janice Dickinson, the "Original supermodel," as she bills herself, coming forward. I actually find her story credible."
