Dickinson says she feels “vindicated” by the release of Cosby’s testimony.
It shows that he and all his people knew all along that we were telling the truth. [But] I want an admission of guilt. This is not over until we get a fair judge and jury and he can go under oath and stand on trial under oath for what he did to me. He and his accomplices should have to pay for what they did.
I personally have spoken to a few women who are too embarrassed and scared to come forward. I’ve seen the pain in their eyes. I just want the other women to know that [speaking out] is painful. But it’s the right thing to do for the healing process, which I beg to God will start to kick in on my end. It hasn’t so far.

Dickinson sues Cosby for defamation over denials made by the comedian’s representatives after she accused him of raping her in 1982. She seeks unspecified damages on defamation, false light and intentional infliction of emotional distress, and claims she has been further victimized and her reputation has suffered because of denials by Cosby’s attorney that the comedian drugged and raped her in a Lake Tahoe, California, hotel room. Suit:
Cosby knows that he drugged and raped Ms Dickinson. He knew that calling her rape disclosure a lie was a false statement.

In a follow-up interview on ET, Dickinson defends her claims against Cosby in a tearful interview..
It is not a lie. It is my right as a woman. I have to speak up and you have to be able to go in and just be brave and do it for all the women that can’t come forward. The loss of innocence that I suffered and that these women suffered is why I’m sitting here today. And I don’t care about what Cosby or networks or anybody says, you will hear me.
Green, another of Cosby’s accusers, calls into ET during Dickinson’s interview. Dickinson:
You were there, you know what happened to you. I didn’t go to the police the next day because I didn’t have the courage or the strength.

Janice Dickinson’s story accusing Bill Cosby of rape is a lie. There is a glaring contradiction between what she is claiming now for the first time and what she wrote in her own book and what she told the media back in 2002. Ms. Dickinson did an interview with the New York Observer in September 2002 entitled ‘Interview With a Vamp’ completely contradicting her new story about Mr. Cosby. That interview a dozen years ago said ‘she didn’t want to go to bed with him and he blew her off.’ Her publisher HarperCollins can confirm that no attorney representing Mr. Cosby tried to kill the alleged rape story (since there was no such story) or tried to prevent her from saying whatever she wanted about Bill Cosby in her book. The only story she gave 12 years ago to the media and in her autobiography was that she refused to sleep with Mr. Cosby and he blew her off. Documentary proof and Ms. Dickinson’s own words show that her new story about something she now claims happened back in 1982 is a fabricated lie.

Dickinson claims that she was raped by Bill Cosby in 1982 in an interview with ET. She says that Cosby invited her to dinner to discuss a role on The Cosby Show, offering her a glass of wine and a pill she thought was for her cramps. She says her last memory of the night was of Cosby taking off his robe and climbing on top of her, and that the next morning she remembers ‘a lot of pain.’
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. I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs.
She claims that she had included details of the assault in her 2002 autobiography, No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World’s First Supermodel, but that Cosby and his lawyer successfully 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. I believe all the other women. Stuffing feelings of rape and my unresolved issued with this incident has drove me into a life of trying to hurt myself because I didn’t have counsel and I was afraid. I was afraid of the consequences. I was afraid of being labeled a whore or a slut and trying to sleep my way to the top of a career that never took place.
