This morning, I told you that supermodel Janice Dickinson told “Entertainment Tonight” that Bill Cosby raped her back in 1982. But while this is the first time she’s spoken out publicly about her own alleged rape, she just about implied as much in a 2006 interview with Howard Stern, which the shock jock’s website chose to upload today, in light of Dickinson’s allegations. Here is a transcript of the relevant exchange:
HS: So he nailed you? You had sex with Bill Cosby?
JD: Bill Cosby was the only guy I couldn’t write about in the book [No Lifeguard on Duty] because [HarperCollins was] afraid of lawsuits… wouldn’t touch that one. And I don’t want to get near that because I don’t have the shekels that you do or that Cosby does … The guy’s a bad guy. Let me just say that. He’s not a nice guy. He preys on women that just come out of rehab. I’ll just say that.

I have quite a few problems with the upcoming movie “The DUFF.” I’m not usually much of a film critic — so long as I’m entertained, I’m usually happy. Movies are interpreted differently by different people because that’s what creative expression is all about, but after seeing the trailer for “The DUFF,” I’m downright angry as there’s no mistaking the messages they’re sending.

Benedict Yumberbatch (aka Benedict Cumberbatch, but it’ll be Yumberbatch from now on) was on “The Daily Show” last night to promote his film, “The Imitation Game.” As it turns out, Jon Stewart, like the rest of us, wants to rip Yumberbatch’s clothes off and sell them on eBay. Stewart claimed that if Benedict got naked and oiled up for a magazine cover Kardashian-style, the world might actually end (#BreakTheEarth?). Anyway, watch for both hilarity and an interesting discussion about theoretical questions inherent in computer programming. [h/t Jezebel]

Last night on CNN, Don Lemon was interviewing Joan Tarshis, one of the latest women to come forward accusing Bill Cosby of rape, and he just couldn’t stop himself from volunteering some completely unnecessary, bullshit “advice.” For context: Tarshis told CNN that that in 1969, when she was 19, Cosby drugged her. She awoke to him pulling off her underwear and she tried to make Cosby stop by lying and saying she had an infection. Cosby raped her orally instead. “I thought I was very clever in saying that, but he was more clever and instead he made me have oral sex with him, which really was just horrible,” she told CNN. “To me it’s much, much worse than had he just raped me the normal way.”
Oh, but according to Lemon, Tarshis could have prevented that too: Keep reading »
Nope, that’s Liam you’re thinking of. He dated Miley and his movie, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1″ opens this weekend. But he didn’t win. His older brother Chris, also Australian and, yes, smoking hot, is People‘s Sexiest Man Alive, beating out his younger bro, as well as likely candidates Chris Pratt, Charlie Hunnam and the Susan Lucci of this particular award, Ryan Gosling. Chris, 31, is the star of “Thor” (uh, who actually saw “Thor”?), is married to Elsa Patacky and is a father of three. Though I am relatively meh on his winning this coveted title, I would not kick him out of bed for eating crackers. And hey, he’s sure an improvement over last year’s winner, Adam Levine. So, congrats! [People]
