Janice Dickinson Says She Covered Up Cosby Rape In Her Memoir

The Latest Bill Cosby defense challenges Janice Dickinson

Ex-supermodel Janice Dickinson, who has accused comedian Bill Cosby of drugging and raping her in 1982, took the stand Thursday at his retrial.

On Thursday, it was Dickinson's turn to tell jurors that Cosby had taken advantage of her after knocking her out with drugs. Cosby gave her three blue pills, she said.

But the thoughts running through her head and the sensations of that night have stayed with her ever since: "America's Dad on top of me", Cosby's cigar-breath and his body odor.

She said she wanted Cosby to stop but couldn't say anything.

Dickinson testified that she had hoped to pursue a career as a singer and Cosby flew her to Lake Tahoe, an alpine lake resort town which straddles California and Nevada, to meet with a vocal coach.

"It's all a fabrication there because I wanted the pay cheque", Dickinson said, repeatedly invoking "poetic licence" to feed and educate her children.

In the book, Dickinson says she rebuffed Cosby's advances, popped two Quaaludes, and went to sleep. She said that, after charming her grandparents, with whom Lasha lived, and promising to mentor the bright, recent high school graduate, Cosby drugged and violated her in his hotel suite. "They said it would never get past Cosby's legal team. Today I am on a sworn Bible".

It's Constand's second chance to confront Cosby in court, since his first trial ended without a verdict. His first trial ended past year in a mistrial after a Pennsylvania jury couldn't come to a unanimous decision. "I couldn't move, I felt like I was rendered motionless, just immobile".

Andrea Constand's testimony on Friday makes for a climactic courtroom showdown after five other women told jurors that the man once revered as "America's Dad" is a serial rapist who harmed them too. I hadn't said yes.

"There's no way I could have been drugged all the time and be on covers of Vogue all over the country, and walk in the runway shows that I did". "They'll relax you, take the edge off, '" Constand said.

Manchester City 'to consider groundsharing with Manchester United'
The Sun are reporting that City would consider opening the doors to their home ground to United if an approach was made by their rivals.

Cosby's lawyer Tom Mesereau, famous for getting Michael Jackson acquitted of child molestation, has dismissed the accusers as "prosecution by distraction" and claims they are money grabbing. Together, they spoke to Cosby, who, she said, admitted to giving her pills and penetrating her with his fingers, and using her hand to masturbate him. "He wasn't the only contender", Dickinson replied. "A married man, father of five kids, on top of me", Dickinson said.

But Lublin now believes she was assaulted and that she never trusted Cosby enough to be alone with him again.

Constand began her testimony Friday as prosecutors this week opened their case: by acknowledging that Cosby paid her $3.38 million as part of a civil settlement.

Looking back on the first day of her nightmarish trip with Cosby, the supermodel said she remembered having dinner with him and music director Stu B. Gardener before following the actor to his room.

She said prior to her alleged assault, Cosby often invited her to events as he cultivated a friendship with her. It took her a year to tell her mother what happened.

Describing a scenario similar to three previous accusers, Dickinson said Cosby contacted her and offered career help.

At another meeting, he reached over and tried to unbutton her trousers but stopped when she leaned forward and gestured she "was not interested", she said. And I was really confused because - what I remembered before I went on that couch feeling blurry vision and what I felt.

"The two people with the most direct knowledge of Janice's book, Judith Regan and Pablo Fenjves, gave us sworn statements under oath, several years ago".

Janice Baker-Kinney testified at Cosby's sexual assault retrial outside Philadelphia.

On cross-examination, Cosby's defense attorneys have worked to point out inconsistencies in their stories. Defense attorneys noted that there were differences between her testimony and what she wrote about in her 2002 biography.
