Another rape allegation surfaces against Cosby and Netflix announced to postpone the Cosby's comedy special "Bill Cosby 77". NBC can be the next to stop airing Cosby.

It seems that Bill Cosby’s rape list is ever ending. In a recent interview with ‘E!’ supermodel Janice Dickinson revealed that the famous comedian has sexually assaulted her also back in 1982. Janice now 59 explains her first encounter with the 77 year old Cosby, when her agent set up a meeting with him so she could get a role on The Cosby Show.

The next conversation between the two took place when shockingly Cosby called her while she was in rehab for drugs and alcohol. Late Cosby visited her while she was in rehab and took her to Lake Tahoe as he wanted to offer her the role she wanted and help her in her singing career.

They had dinner at the Lake and then Janice was given a glass of red wine and a pill which she had asked for as she was having a stomach pain. The she explains she does not remember anything except that the next morning she woke up without her pajamas and remembered that the night before she was sexually assaulted by Cosby.

She explained that she remembered Cosby taking off his robe and getting on top of her and then she remembers a lot of pain. The next morning she was wearing her pajamas and had semen over her legs. 

Janice also tells us that she wanted to tell her story before in her autobiography ‘No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World’s First Supermodel’, in 2002. However she could not as Cosby and his lawyers pressurized her and the publisher to remove these details.

She said she is doing this because this is the right thing to do and that she believes all the other women who have accused Cosby. Janice is the third women to accuse Cosby of sexual assault after the comedian Hannibal Buress called Cosby a rapist in October during a comedy show. The other women include actress Barbara Bowman and publicist Joan Tarshis. 

Cosby had been working with Netflix for bringing out a new comedy show but due to these allegations surfacing up against him Netflix has ruled out the possibility of any such show with him, at least for the time period. Moreover Cosby’s silence over these allegations has also caused him much trouble.

He cancelled his scheduled interviews on Late Show with David Letterman and The Queen Latifah Show. The Netflix show was named ‘Bill Cosby 77’ and was to be released on November 28th one day after the U.S Thanksgiving holiday. Cosby’s lawyer did issue a statement on his website after the allegations surfaced and explained that Cosby had no intention to prove himself as these allegations were false. 

Well it seems to us that Cosby has always had an eye for young women. He was accused of sexual assault in 2005 and had to settle a lawsuit with Andrea Constand, when 13 other women were also ready to reveal similar stories. Cosby’s image for sure has been damaged.
