Bill Cosby Case: Janice Dickinson Says 'I Have to Pinch Myself' After Disgraced Comic's Conviction
The former model testified against Cosby during the retrial.
Janice Dickinson is breaking her silence to Inside Edition about the stunning verdict in the Bill Cosby sexual assault trial.
"I have to pinch myself," she told Inside Edition. "I have been waiting so long for this to be believed."
During closing arguments, the former supermodel was denounced by a Cosby lawyer as an "aged-out model" and "failed starlet" whose testimony "sounds as if she slept with every man on the planet."
Dickinson was hurt by the defense's remarks.
"For them to be attacking me and slut-shaming me as well as the other accusers, it is not a nice feeling, believe me," she said.
Dickinson was 28 years old when she says Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted her in a hotel room in 1982, claims he denies. She is now 63.
On Thursday, after the guilty verdict came down, Cosby shocked onlookers when he called the district attorney an "a**hole" for suggesting he was a flight risk and might flee on a private plane before he could be sentenced.
Dickinson's lawyer, Lisa Bloom, also spoke to Inside Edition.
“When he left, Cosby was smirking and smiling and acting like the whole thing was a wonderful good time," she said. "Well, I don’t think he is smiling now."
Cosby left court without saying anything and was driven home to his estate outside Philadelphia.
Inside Edition spoke to Cosby reps Andrew Wyatt and Ebony Benson.
"You might be able to brand him right now with a guilty, but you still can’t take away what he has done for America," Wyatt said.
Wyatt also described Cosby's requests as they left court.
“He called from the car, he called his staff and said, 'Hey, get my loungewear out, lay it across the bed, and tell my wife I am coming home to hold her hand,'" Wyatt claimed.
Benson said that Cosby does not regret his courtroom outburst.
“Mr. Cosby, after going through it for two years and getting beat up and punched, he earned that right. Eighty years old and blind, he earned that right," Wyatt added.
Cosby will be sentenced sometime in the next three months. He faces as much as 30 years in prison. He says he will appeal the verdict.
