Janice labelled Cosby a monster
She added: “I compartmentalised it because I was embarrassed.”
Janice said she trusted the actor because of “his demeanour” and the fact he was married.
Speaking of the night Cosby, who she know refers to as a “monster”, allegedly abused her, she said: “I was alone with him.
“I had menstrual cramp – he said ‘I have something for that’ and he gave me a pill.”
“When I started to black out I had a Polaroid camera on me – I took several photographs. I just remember having him on me in my room the next morning.
“I remember waking up and that he – there was a lot of pain downstairs. There was semen all over me and my pyjama bottoms were off and the top was open.
“I just packed up and I got the hell out of there.
“I remember being extremely angry that I had been violated – I remember feeling disgusted at him, but I was disgusted at myself.
“I should have reported it to the Nevada police. I had crystal clear memory of this entire incident, of this rape.”
When confronted with Cosby’s lawyer’s allegations that her claims are false, Janice stood by her account.
She said: “I am Janice Dickinson and I am the world’s first supermodel and this happened in 1982.”
Clearly angry, she continued: “Screw you, Bill. You know damn well he’s not going to take any responsibility.
The star claims Bill Cosby raped her in 1982
“Innuendo? I say you raped, me Bill Cosby, you raped me in 1982, in Lake Tahoe.”
Last week, Cosby’s lawyer responded directly to Janice Dickinson’s allegations, calling them a “complete lie”.
He said: “She did an interview with the New York Observer in September 2002 entitled ‘Interview with the Vamp’ completely contradicting her story. She claimed that because “she didn’t want to sleep with him (Cosby), he blew her off.”
Adding: “You can confirm with Harper Collins that she never claimed that Mr Cosby raped her, that no attorney representing Bill Cosby tried to kill the story (since there was no such story) and no one tried to prevent anything she wanted to say about Bill Cosby in her book.”
