Janice Dickinson warns: 'Be afraid, Bill Cosby. Be very afraid'
(INSIDE EDITION) TV personality Janice Dickinson is filing a multi-million dollar lawsuit against comedian Bill Cosby for defamation after she accused him of drugging and raping her.
She says, "Be afraid Bill Cosby! Be very afraid!"
The 59-year-old former supermodel went public last November with claims that she was sexually assaulted by the comic icon in a Lake Tahoe hotel 33 years ago.
Cosby's attorney called her story, "an outrageous, defamatory lie."

Now, Dickinson is suing for defamation saying in court papers that Cosbypublicly branded her a liar.
INSIDE EDITION's Jim Moret asked Dickinson, "What is your reaction to being called a 'liar?'"
She said, "I am walking through the fire and if I can walk through this fire of pain, guilt, suffering, and embarrassment as the other women and women all over world who have been raped and robbed of their innocence, this is why I came forward!"
If the lawsuit goes forward, it means that Cosby could be forced to answer tough questions about those rape allegations he has always denied. Her attorney is TV legal analyst Lisa Bloom - the daughter of attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing several other women who sayCosby sexually assaulted them in years past.
"Bill Cosby will absolutely have to answer questions from me about raping and drugging, not only Janice Dickinson, but the 46 other women," said Bloom.
Last week, Cosby was asked about those claims in a recent interview onGood Morning America.
He said, "I have been in this business over 52 years and I have never seen anything like this."
Dickinson added, "It makes me sick to look at his face!"
Dickinson says she met Cosby in Lake Tahoe to discuss a role on The Cosby Show., then the nation's top-rated sitcom. She says she took photographs of Cosby wearing a multi-colored patchwork robe in his hotel room minutes before the assault. There was a bottle of malt liquor on the night stand.

Dickinson responded, "Tell the truth. Apologize. Be accountable for your actions. Stop raping women and children!"
Cosby has denied any wrongdoing.
