Janice Dickinson joined the five other women who have come forward and accused Bill Cosby of rape, telling Entertainment Tonight this week that the comedian drugged and sexually assaulted her in Lake Tahoe in 1982.

The former supermodel's allegations are just the latest in the string of accusations against the "Cosby Show" creator, which have clouded his legacy as a trailblazing entertainer and jeopardized his current projects with Netflix and NBC.

Dickinson, 59, told ET that she met with Cosby, 77, in the '80s after her agent set up a meeting with him to discuss a possible role on "The Cosby Show." Cosby later invited her to Lake Tahoe after she was released from rehab for drug and alcohol abuse, Dickinson told the celebrity news program.

It was during that meeting that Cosby reportedly offered her wine and a pill during dinner.

"The next morning I woke up, and I wasn't wearing my pajamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man," Dickinson told ET. "Before I woke up in the morning, the last thing I remember was Bill Cosby in a patchwork robe, dropping his robe and getting on top of me. And I remember a lot of pain. The next morning I remember waking up with my pajamas off and there was semen in between my legs."

Dickinson said she did not include the sexual assault in her 2002 autobiography, "No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World's First Supermodel," because Cosby and his lawyers pressured her and the publisher to remove the details. She's decided to speak out now because it's the right thing to do in light of the other women coming forward against Cosby, she said.

Cosby has not responded publicly to any of the allegations, and went silent when asked about them in an interview with Scott Simon of National Public Radio's "Weekend Edition Saturday" over the weekend.

Netflix announced Tuesday that it was "postponing the launch of the new stand-up comedy special 'Bill Cosby 77,'" originally set for release on Thanksgiving.
