Janice Dickinson Said “Bill Cosby Preys On Women” During 2006 Howard Stern Interview

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.

CNN’s Don Lemon Asks Cosby Accuser Why She Didn’t “Use Teeth” To Avoid Being Raped

CNN's Don Lemon Asks Cosby Accuser Why She Didn't "Use Teeth" To Avoid Being Raped
"There are ways NOT to perform oral sex..."

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 »
