Beverly Johnson Speaks with Larry King
It’s a no holds barred conversation when Supermodel Beverly Johnson sits down with Larry King on the Emmy nominated series Larry King Now. The first black model on the cover of Vogue opens up about why she decided to come forward about Bill Cosby. She also reveals her battle with eating disorders & drugs and how she is breaking barriers in the modeling industry.
Supermodel Beverly Johnson says her memoir publisher initially refused a chapter about Beverly’s experience with Bill Cosby, but later decided to include it when other women came forward with similar stories. She recounts the day she says she was drugged by Bill Cosby saying, “I was going to be on the show, maybe a recurring role of the sister, and then, the cappuccino. We had a little meal before, so there were staff there. I didn’t see them when this acting exercise started to begin, and then the offer of this drink, the cappuccino. It was immediate, as soon as I took the first sip I knew.”
“I was so disappointed. It was like, where do I go before I pass out? Where can I go safely? Before that I looked him dead in the eye and just called him a number of names and I got louder and louder and I just became more belligerent. I was so disappointed. I was so irate. He had to get me out of there.”
