Former Supermodel Janice Dickinson Just Gave Powerful Testimony Against Bill Cosby

Former Supermodel Janice Dickinson Just Gave Powerful Testimony Against Bill Cosby

"Remember my words as you listen to the people testify".

She said her legs "felt very rubbery" as Cosby walked her to a sofa and put a pillow under her head. That's when she confronted him.

He flew to Lake Tahoe in which she met Cosby and also his musical manager and whined of cramps.

He highlighted the fact Cosby paid Constand a $3.38 million settlement in 2006 to end the civil lawsuit she filed after prosecutors decided in 2005 not to bring criminal charges in the case. But Cosby's lawyers are expected to challenge that testimony when they cross-examine Constand.

"Ms. Constand why are you here?"

But when Dickinson turned from testifying about background information related to her character to the topic of the day - her allegation that Bill Cosby drugged and raped her in 1982 - her jocular manner shifted.

"Shortly after I took the pictures and he finished the conversation, he got on top of me", Dickinson said. And I was not able to do a thing to fight back.

Cosby has said he gave Constand the cold medicine Benadryl and that she consented to sex.

"My next memory was getting up off the couch, seeing, my bra was up around my neck and my trousers were kind of half unzipped", Constand continued.

"I was thinking, what the heck, what the heck is he doing?" Cosby guided her to a sofa and laid her down.

Another former model and aspiring actress, Lublin says she was 23 in 1989 when Cosby prodded her to drink two shots of alcohol in his Las Vegas hotel suite. She woke up in her own bed with no other recollection of what happened. "I had a really bad dream". The former director of operations for the basketball team at Temple University claims that she looked up to Cosby as a mentor, only to find herself incapacitated one night at the comedian's home in suburban Philadelphia after taking blue pills he offered.

Dickinson, 27 at the time, testified she felt vaginal pain and, after waking up the next morning, noticed semen between her legs. He then took her to his hotel room and she began to feel light-headed and struggled to speak. His answer has been silence and a facial expression which conveyed, "You && 're mad", she said.

"It was a very, very short visit". He agreed but only at his house, she said.

Requested what was going via her thoughts, Lasha testified: "Dr. Huxtable would not do that". Glossing over the heart of her testimony, however, could present a problem for the prosecution in the second trial for Cosby. Mesereau noted that one report said the alleged assault took place in March, while other police reports said it occurred in January.

When she arrived, Dickinson said, she wasn't feeling well. Constand said she did not. "They will help you relax'". She came forward in April 2015, a few months after lawyer Gloria Allred proposed that Cosby set aside a chunk of his fortune to compensate accusers.

After some back and forth about whether there was time to pursue certain lines of questioning, the parties chose to go home a little early instead.

Constand is Cosby's chief accuser in a case that lacks virtually any forensic evidence.

However, prosecutors are allowed to seek testimony from up to five other women who have said Cosby also drugged and assaulted them in previous incidents. "I mentioned that did not invite him to rape her".

She testified that he gave her a little blue pill, which she swallowed. Cosby then got on top her, she testified.

"He smelled like cigars and espresso and his body odor", she said. "I couldn't move, I felt like I was rendered motionless, just immobile. Here was "America's Dad" on top of me, a happily married man with five kids, and how very, very wrong it was", Dickinson said.

Mesereau read passage after passage from the supermodel's books "No Lifeguard On Duty", "Everything About Me Is Fake and I'm Perfect" and "Check Please: Dating, Mating, and Extricating", which detailed extensive drug use and a wild lifestyle that played out in 1970s New York City.
