Janice Dickinson testifies against Bill Cosby in Andrea Constand retrial

Eventually, she was so incapacitated that she "couldn't get the words out I wanted to say", Dickinson testified. "And Mr. Cosby said, 'I think you need to relax.' But I knew something was wrong". "How very, very wrong it was". She passed out when he entered her, and she said she felt "vaginal pain". She said didn't realize what may have happened to her until Dickinson's 2014 interview.

Janice Dickinson admitted to fabricating stories about her encounter with Bill Cosby in her memoir, No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World's First Supermodel. The photos - a key piece of evidence to buttress her claims of spending time with Cosby - were displayed for the jury, which got to see the entertainer dressed in a multicolored checked robe and brown cap.

"I don't lie, sir, don't call me a liar", Dickinson said.

Cosby's lawyer then asked Dickinson of the discrepancies between her book and her account. Dickinson said she went along with what was written in the book because she needed the money.

The 80-year-old comedy legend has been charged with three counts of aggravated indecent assault. He says it was consensual.

The protection has dismissed the opposite girls's testimony as "prosecution by distraction".

"These women proved that they were here to back up their sister - they got their sister's back", Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt said Thursday outside court. When she awoke, she said, Cosby was violating her.


She said he made a phone call while wearing a bathrobe.

She said Cosby invited her to Lake Tahoe after an initial meeting at his New York City townhouse, where he had given her an acting manual.

The first of the women to testify, Heidi Thomas, told jurors Tuesday that Cosby knocked her out with wine and forced her to perform oral sex in Reno, Nev., in 1984. Fenjves has corroborated this statement, and Dickinson even suggested to Mesereau that he could be called as a witness. "I wanted to punch him in the face", she added. "When I wanted to write the truth about my life, I was denied".

She declared he gave her. Cosby then took back her back at which Dickinson took pictures of him.

"It pisses me off that that's something I'm carrying forever", she said.

She said that's where she started to get cramps, and that's when Cosby produced the pill. "I was rendered motionless. 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".


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 responded by telling the jurors that she wanted to highlight the details of that night, but ultimately chose to just write a sanitized version that did not include sex, let alone rape, because her publishers told her that the legal department would never print allegations made against Cosby.

When she woke up, she was sore and remembers her pajamas were halfway off, she testified.

On two earlier occasions, she said, she had rebuffed his advances. Of all of Cosby's accusers, Constand remains the only one whose claims are not too old to prosecute. 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. Cosby by no means agreed to that. Dickinson told the court, "Cosby gave me a little blue pill". On Thursday, Janice Dickinson became the fourth of those accusers to testify at Cosby's retrial.

Cosby, who played the lovable patriarch and "America's Dad" on The Cosby Show, is standing for his second criminal trial on allegations of drugging and sexually assaulting former friend and colleague Andrea Constand, 45, in 2004.

The previous girls's basketball administrator at Cosby's alma mater, Temple College, alleges he gave her drugs and molested her.

The Associated Press does not typically identify people who say they are victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand and the other women have done.
