Bill Cosby - *****File Photos*** Janice Dickinson comes forward with Cosby accusation Former model-turned-TV personality JANICE DICKINSON has become the fourth woman to accuse comedian BILL COSBY of sexual assault. In an exclusive new interview with U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight, Dickinson details an alleged encounter with Cosby in 1982, when he offered to help her with a planned singing career after she left rehab. She recalls she was holidaying in Bali when Cosby invited her to Lake Tahoe, California, where he was performing, so they could discuss her career and a possible role on his hit comedy The Cosby Show. The former catwalk star claims he offered her red wine and a pill when she complained of stomach pains over dinner. She recalls, "The next morning I woke up, and I wasn't wearing my pyjamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man. 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 pyjamas off and there was semen in between my legs." Dickinson reveals she wrote about the assault in the first draft of her 2002 autobiography No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World's First Supermodel, but claims Cosby and his lawyers pressured publishers at HarperCollins to remove the details. She tells ET, "I'm doing this because it's the right thing to do, and it happened to me, and this is the true story. I believe all the other women... I didn't have counsel and I was afraid of the consequences. I was afraid of being labelled a whore or a slut and trying to sleep my way to the top of a career that never took place." Dickinson admits she has never confronted Cosby over the alleged incident, but she wouldn't hold back if she met him again today. She rages, "(I'd say) 'How dare you. Go f**k yourself. How dare you take advantage of me. And I hope you rot'." The ex- at Hard Rock Live - Hollywood, Florida, United States - Sunday 12th May 2013 (1 Picture)
