The Bill Cosby rape retrial continues, and his dark past is coming back to haunt him.
The trial is over three counts of sexual assault against Andrea Constand in 2004, but it’s giving women whose accusations are past the statute of limitations the chance to tell their stories.
Janice Dickinson became the fourth woman to testify on Thursday, renewing her claim that Cosby drugged and raped her in 1982 — this time under oath.
According to testimony recorded by DailyMail.com the former America’s Next Top Model judge told the jury about meeting the comedian, and how she had been excited when he invited her to Lake Tahoe to watch him perform and talk about her career.
At dinner with Cosby and his music director, Stu B. Gardener, Dickinson recalled she was complaining of menstrual pain:
“Cosby said, ‘I have something for that’.’ And I was given a blue pill – a little round blue pill.'”
She said it didn’t take long for the unnamed drug to kick in:
“We remained seated inside the restaurant and shortly after I took the pill I started to feel woozy and dizzy, slightly out of it.
When we were finished Gardener left and Cosby said, ‘We’ll continue this conversation upstairs,’ so I followed him to his room.”
Dickinson said she was sitting on Cosby’s bed while he changed into a bathrobe and made a phone call. She took some photos with her Polaroid camera while she waited, including of Cosby; these were shown to the jury.
Then he came back — after the drug had time to work completely.

“He got on top of me and his robe opened and I remembered he smelled like cigars and espresso and his body odor.
I couldn’t move. I was I felt like I was rendered motionless. I was thinking what the eff… What the heck is he doing? I was in shock. I didn’t consent to this. I hadn’t said yes. I didn’t fly to Tahoe to have sex with Mr Cosby [but] it was occurring. I remember his breath, the taste of his kiss it smelt like cigars and espresso…
Here was America’s dad on top of me, a happily married man with five children and I remember how wrong it was, how very, very wrong it was…
Before I zonked out I felt pain between my legs, vaginal pain. I passed out after he entered me. It was gross.
I woke up the next morning in my room I didn’t know where I was. I had semen between my legs and I felt anal pain. I took a mirror and looked at myself I could see I was very sore. I remember having pajamas half way on with no bottoms on.”
Horrible. And very credible.
