This is my first time writing about the Bill Cosby rape allegations, because fuck, why would anybody want to believe that? The Huxtable family was there for me more than my own family, but so was McDonald’s. And I have no problem is saying McDonald’s is evil. So with all these allegations mounting against him, I guess we should make the list shorter and just ask, “who hasn’t Bill Cosby drugged and raped?”. Apparently not former supermodel Janice Dickinson, because she just said he raped her in 1982.
Dickinson, now 59, recalls first meeting Cosby, now 77, when her agent set up a meeting with him to hire her for a role on The Cosby Show. After they had dinner, she says their next conversation was when he called her out of the blue while she was in rehab for drugs and alcohol. Following her stay in rehab, Dickinson says Cosby reached out to her during a trip to Bali and had her travel to Lake Tahoe, because he was performing there and wanted to offer her the job they had discussed as well as help her with a singing career. Dickinson says they had dinner in Lake Tahoe, and claims that he gave her a glass of red wine and a pill, which she asked for because she was menstruating and had stomach pains. “The next morning I woke up, and I wasn’t wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man,” she tells ET. “… 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 pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs.” Dickinson also says she tried to write about the assault in her 2002 autobiography No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World’s First Supermodel, but claims that when she submitted a draft with her full story to HarperCollins, Cosby and his lawyers pressured her and the publisher to remove the details. “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 about coming out with her story now. “I believe all the other women.” Dickinson says that keeping the alleged sexual assault a secret for 32 years drove her to a life of hurting herself.
Dickinson is the most high-profile Cosby accuser yet, so we can just go ahead eliminate any motivating factors you have if you’re still wanting to defend this rape monster. But much like, Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby has pudding pop and syndication money to never see the inside of a courtroom unless he’s guest star on an episode of Law & Order. So the only thing will ever happen to Bill Cosby is that he will never be invited to be a guest star on Law & Order. Take a moment to realize how fucked up that is.
