Model Beverly Johnson says Bill Cosby drugged her

Model and actress Beverly Johnson, best known as the first African-American to appear on Vogue's cover, is the latest woman to come forward alleging Bill Cosby drugged and attempted to assault her.

Johnson met Cosby in the mid-80s, when the comedian asked her to audition for a small role on The Cosby Show, she writes in Vanity Fair. While running lines at his house, she says he spiked her cappuccino. As she got woozier, she realized what was happening and yelled at him while he had his hands around her waist.

I recall his seething anger at my tirade and then him grabbing me by my left arm hard and yanking all 110 pounds of me down a bunch of stairs as my high heels clicked and clacked on every step. I feared my neck was going to break with the force he was using to pull me down those stairs. [Vanity Fair]

Johnson's article brings the count of Cosby accusers up to about 20 women so far.
