NBC has has cancelled Bill Cosby’s sitcom in development after another woman, model Janice Dickinson accused him of raping her too. It’s getting bizarre at this point with over a dozen women telling the same, creepy story.
Dickinson says that in 1982 Cosby invited to her Lake Tahoe where he was performing with a promise of a gig and “to help her singing career,” which she innocently believed. When she arrived, the two had dinner and a glass of wine, and because she told him she had menstrual cramps, she accepted “a pill” from him hoping it would make her feel better. Turns out the pill was to make him feel better. “The next morning I woke up and wasn’t wearing my pajamas,” she said. “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. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen between my legs.”
“Why didn’t you tell anyone at the time?” an Entertainment Tonight host asked her. In addition to being scared of him she said “Because I was embarrassed and ashamed,” which pretty much answers the same question reporters have been asking accusers all week. Cosby’s attorney immediately issued a statement calling Dickinson’s story a “fabricated lie.” I’m doing this because it’s the right thing to do, and it happened to me, and this is the true story,” she says.
Marty Singer, Bill Cosby’s s attorney has made a new statement calling Dickinson’s claim an “outrageous and defamatory lie.”
Tamara Green, an attorney who has accused Cosby of drugging and assaulting her too says “Bill Cosby is twisted, he’s a sexual predator who attacked me and has done the same to dozens of women that I know of. But he continues to refuse to acknowledge it, which is what angers me and the other women most. He should come clean and apologize for what he has done. To admit that the fame, the money and his own propaganda went to his head and he lost control.”
