Two weeks after telling Entertainment Tonight that Bill Cosby raped her,Janice Dickinson gave an emotional interview on CNN Monday night, in which she recounted the details of the 1982 night when the comedian allegedly sexually assaulted her.

Dickinson and Cosby were both attendees at a dinner in Lake Tahoe, Nev., and at one point were left alone. When the model complained of menstrual cramps, Cosby offered her a pill that she didn't recall questioning. "I trusted Bill Cosby," Dickinson said. "Because of his demeanor and the promise of a career, I trusted him."

Dickinson recalled taking several Polaroid photos of Cosby wearing a robe (some of which have been released online). "I just remember shooting these pictures and having them on me the next morning when I woke up. The last thing I remembered — I had blacked out — [was] Cosby mounting me like the monster that he was. And I was thinking, 'What the heck?'" Dickinson said.

Why no one should be surprised by the Bill Cosby rape allegations

"I remember passing out, but I remember more specifically waking up and that he — there was a lot of pain downstairs," Dickinson said, tearing up. "There was semen all over me and my pajama bottoms were off and the top was open. And at that point, fight or flight, I just packed up and got the hell out of there."

When asked why she waited so long to come forward, Dickinson said she remembered "being humiliated, disgusted. I had revulsion toward Cosby, and Cosby was a very powerful man and probably still is. I trusted this man, and I stuffed it. I compartmentalized it because I was embarrassed."

But now that Dickinson has shared her story — and several other women have come forward with allegations that Cosby had raped them — Dickinson believes it's time for Cosby to acknowledge these incidents. "I would like Cosby to come out and at least acknowledge that he is a pig, that he is a monster and that he raped me," Dickinson said.

After the interview, Dickinson broke down crying again and apologized. "I do not know how to process these emotions. I'm going to meditate. I'm going to church. I do not know. This has affected me in my house, it's affecting me, it's really affected these women," Dickinson said.
