Beverly Johnson, who became known as the first African-American woman to grace the cover of American Vogue, stepped up with an account she wrote for Vanity Fair, in which she says she was drugged by Bill Cosby back in the 1980’s.
Johnson was interested in appearing on The Cosby Show and when Cosby learned about it, he invited her for an audition. In fact, there were two auditions, one of which included other people as well, but the other was more private.
Cosby invited Johnson to his New York City apartment where the two had some dinner and when they were about to do the audition, Cosby started insisting she had some cappuccino.
The moment she took a sip of that cappuccino, Johnson realized something was wrong. Her speech was slurred and she felt faint and dizzy, and started yelling at Cosby. He grabbed her, took her outside and pushed her into a cab, sending her home.
This is just the latest in the series of testimonies about Bill Cosby drugging people.
