Bill Cosby - *****File Photos*** Janice Dickinson comes forward with Cosby accusation Former model-turned-TV personality JANICE DICKINSON has become the fourth woman to accuse comedian BILL COSBY of sexual assault. In an exclusive new interview with U.S. news show Entertainment Tonight, Dickinson details an alleged encounter with Cosby in 1982, when he offered to help her with a planned singing career after she left rehab. She recalls she was holidaying in Bali when Cosby invited her to Lake Tahoe, California, where he was performing, so they could discuss her career and a possible role on his hit comedy The Cosby Show. The former catwalk star claims he offered her red wine and a pill when she complained of stomach pains over dinner. She recalls, "The next morning I woke up, and I wasn't wearing my pyjamas, and I remember before I passed out that I had been sexually assaulted by this man. 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 pyjamas off and there was semen in between my legs." Dickinson reveals she wrote about the assault in the first draft of her 2002 autobiography No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World's First Supermodel, but claims Cosby and his lawyers pressured publishers at HarperCollins to remove the details. She tells ET, "I'm doing this because it's the right thing to do, and it happened to me, and this is the true story. I believe all the other women... I didn't have counsel and I was afraid of the consequences. I was afraid of being labelled a whore or a slut and trying to sleep my way to the top of a career that never took place." Dickinson admits she has never confronted Cosby over the alleged incident, but she wouldn't hold back if she met him again today. She rages, "(I'd say) 'How dare you. Go f**k yourself. How dare you take advantage of me. And I hope you rot'." The ex- at Madison Square Garden - New York City, New York, United States - Wednesday 6th November 2013

Keith Richards, Billy Crystal, The Fonz: The Celebrity Children's Book Author Club


Keith Richards Bill Cosby Whoopi Goldberg Billy Crystal Julianne Moore John Lithgow Will Smith Henry Winkler

OK, so Keith Richards has released a children’s book called ‘Gus & Me: The Story of My Granddad and My First Guitar’, which was inspired by his own childhood and first experiences with music. There are lots of things that we think of Keith Richards as being, a children’s author is certainly not one. That said, we’re sure that the book will be magical and the sneak peek at illustrations indicate they will be beautiful, but it’s got us thinking about which other celebrities have written children’s books. And wow. You would not believe some of the celebs that have!

Keith RichardsKeith Richards Has Penned A Children's Book

Bill Cosby wrote a book for children. Yep, the Bill Cosby, from The Cosby Show fame. The one who is always been accused of being inappropriate in a manner of ways. Cosby’s book is called ‘The Day I Was Rich’ and purports to teach children the value of friendship over money. When Little Bill (nothing Freudian to see here) discovers what he thinks is a huge diamond, which turns out to be a glass paperweight, he and friends are momentarily deflated before returning to the fun they had before they discovered the ‘treasure’. Heartwarming stuff.

"Filmation" Founder And Animation Mastermined Lou Scheimer Dies At Age 84


Bill Cosby

Lou Scheimer, founder of Filmation Studio and one of the pioneers of Saturday morning television, has passed away at 84. According to the Los Angeles Times, the TV veteran passed away on Tuesday, after living with Parkinson’s disease.

Scheimer’s company was behind such classics as Fat Albert, He-Man and several cartoons set in the DC universe, all fondly remembered by 70s, 80s and even 90s kids. Scheimer was most notable for his company’s modus operandi, however. In the 80s, Filmation was the largest animation studio in the US, and, quite admirably, Scheimer was one of the few in the business, still refusing to export work overseas. However, this approach was not without its faults, as the studio’s cartoons were criticized by connoisseurs at large for lacking the fluidity of motion and the kind of artistry, seen in earlier animated pictures.

Scheimer defended the Filmation productions with the following statement, made in 1981 in an LA Times interview: "Given the demands of the network schedules, it's practically impossible to take all care and love we would like to on the technical aspects. We'd love to do theatrical shorts, and if you can find somebody to pay for them, let us know."

Comedian Review


Very Good
Comedians are not funny people. If we're to believe Christian Charles' aptly-titled documentary, they're obsessive, jealous, self-loathing, analytical and petty. Remember, dying is easy and comedy is hard.

Two paths are followed in Comedian. On one, a comic on the verge of success named Orny Adams receives what could be a career-defining break. On the other, an entertainer who climbed to the top of the heap named Jerry Seinfeld surveys his newly-acquired kingdom following the end of his highly-successful sitcom.
