TV Host Janice Dickinson Latest Bill Cosby Accuser

TV host and "the world's first supermodel" Janice Dickinson is the latest woman to accuse comedian Bill Cosby of sexual assault.

Dickinson, now 59, told Entertainment Tonight in an interview that aired Tuesday that Cosby assaulted her in 1982 after a dinner in Lake Tahoe where they discussed a role for Dickinson on The Cosby Show.

According to Dickinson, Cosby gave her a pill and a glass of red wine, after she complained of stomach pains.

When she awoke the next morning, "I wasn't wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man," Dickinson told Entertainment Tonight.

The last thing Dickinson says she remembered 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 pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs."

Dickinson also told Entertainment Tonight that she submitted a draft of her 2002 autobiography No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the Word's First Supermodel, which included a description of the assault, but she says Cosby's lawyers pressured her and Harper Collins to remove the allegation.

Dickinson also called Cosby "a bad guy who preys on vulnerable women," on the Howard Stern show in 2006.

More than a dozen women have now publicly made similar allegations against Cosby.

Cosby's lawyer, John P. Schmitt, dismissed the sexual assault claims as "decade-old" and "discredited" and said, "Mr Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment."
