What is Janice Dickinson's net worth?

Just a day before Bill Cosby's chief accuser was to take the witness stand at his sexual assault retrial, Janice Dickinson, a former model and TV personality shared her horrifying story of being drugged and raped by the renowned comedy star to the jury members.

Now well into middle age, Dickinson, Baker-Kinney and the other two accusers who have testified so far told jurors they wound up unconscious from the pills or alcohol Cosby gave them, unable to say no or resist as he had his way with them.

Over dinner, he allegedly handed her a blue pill, which she thought would ease menstrual cramps, but left her dizzy and "out of it". But when Dickinson consumed the pill, she felt drowsy and was not able to move. When she awoke, she said, Cosby was violating her.

"Here's a married man, father of five kids, on top of me", Dickinson testified.

"Cosby said, 'I have something for that, ' " Dickinson testified. "His robe opened up, and he smelled like cigars and espresso and his body odour". She said Cosby looked at her "like I was crazy" when she confronted him about what had happened. And I didn't feel insane at that moment standing up for myself saying 'that's not cool. "I remember thinking how wrong it was, how very wrong it was". Sorry, what the heck, what the heck?

"I felt his fingers going inside of my vagina, going in and out, very forcefully", she said. I didn't fly to Tahoe to have sex with Mr Cosby [but] it was occurring.

Cosby says his sexual encounter with Constand was consensual, asserting through his lawyers that she set him up to score a big payday.

"After a very short time on the telephone with my mom there, he eventually apologised for doing what he did, but he would not tell us what he gave me", she said.

During cross examination Thursday, defense lawyer Tom Mesereau suggested she was motivated to distort the facts of a fun evening when she heard about a possible $100 million windfall from Cosby. "Today, I'm on a sworn Bible... to tell my true story".

Dickinson then clashed with Cosby's defence attorney Tom Mesereau during his cross-examination, in an exchange which U.S. media outlets described as "heated".

Cosby, that played the loveable patriarch & "the us's Dad" on "The Cosby display", is to trial at Pennsylvania for a second time accusations of drugging and sexually assaulting former pal and colleague Andrea Constand, 4 5, at 2004. She sipped the tea, took the top of the muffin and drove herself home. In the book, she never mentioned rape, though the meeting with Cosby did make it to her autobiography. "When I wanted to write the truth about my life, I was denied".

"There's no way I could have been drugged all the time and be on covers of Vogue all over the country, and walk in the runway shows that I did". I hadn't said yes. She conformed to her publisher because she needed the money, as well as not wanting Cosby ruining her career.

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby returns to the courtroom after lunch recess during the third day of the retrial of his sexual assault case at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pennsylvania on April 11, 2018.

On cross-examination Thursday, defense attorney Mesereau questioned why Baker-Kinney waited to come forward until 2015, after lawyer Gloria Allred proposed that Cosby use his vast resources to compensate accusers. "I felt my breasts being touched, and he took my hand and placed my hand on his penis and masturbated himself with my hand".

Following along because he was "America's Dad", Lublin said she lost consciousness after Cosby told her to sit between his knees and started petting her head. "They said it would never get past Cosby's legal team".

Constand said she preferred homeopathic and alternative treatments and did not like swallowing any medicine, even over-the-counter remedies.
