Former supermodel Beverly Johnson wrestled with the idea of going public with her allegations of attempted sexual assault against beloved comedian Bill Cosby, insisting it was the "most difficult decision" she has ever made. The beauty added her name to the growing list of the veteran funnyman's alleged victims on Thursday (11Dec14), when an article she penned for Vanity Fair, in which she details an encounter with him, was published.
In the piece, she claimed she was drugged after sipping coffee Cosby had made for her during a visit to his California home to audition for a part on his sitcom, The Cosby Show, back in the 1980s.
She wrote, "I knew by the second sip of the drink Cosby had given me that I'd been drugged - and drugged good."
Johnson claims she flew into a rage and hurled expletives at the actor for his reported bad behaviour, prompting him to forcibly kick her out of his house and send her packing in a taxi.
She has now opened up further about the incident, revealing she was inspired to take back her "power" after so many other women stepped forward with their own accusations against Cosby.
Speaking to U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America on Friday (12Dec14), she said, "These women gave me the courage to come forward.
"This was the most difficult decision that I've ever made. I am... calling out a black man, a revered black man, and sometimes it's really hard to do the right thing, but this is the right thing to do."
Johnson, who insists she has no plans to sue, claims she kept the news a secret for decades because she feared speaking out in the '80s would have cut short her blossoming acting career, but now she wants to help encourage other victims of sexual assault to make their voices heard.
She tells America's Today show, "At the time I felt that it would hurt my career. Most certainly, he was a very powerful man... (but) this is bigger than Bill Cosby. This is about women and violence on women. This is about women finding their voice. I feel that Cosby took my power that evening and that I took my power back."
Cosby's representatives have yet to comment on Johnson's accusations, but have previously dismissed other claims of sexual assault and inappropriate behaviour.

Sunday nights are generally a good night for television fans – between HBO’s lineup of addicting shows, Downton Abbey’s continued dominance of British dramas, and whatever major sporting event is on, there’s plenty to watch, and usually, it’s relatively easy to space out your viewing schedule for the evening. However, this Sunday was surprisingly packed with must-watch shows and events, all of which you just know your friends and co-workers are going to be talking about all day.
It was impossible to watch everything that aired on Sunday night as it was premiering, but that doesn’t mean you have to feel left out of the conversation. We’ve rounded up the buzziest shows of Sunday night, and given you everything you need to know about what went down, and how to fake it until you’re able to catch up on everything properly. You can thank us later.
THE WINTER OLYMPICS
You Watched this If: You like bragging about your awesome ski weekend, and you’ll usually talk about the condition of the “powder” on the mountain. What Happened: There were three big medal events on Sunday night: team figure skating, women’s slopestyle snowboarding, and men’s downhill alpine skiing. Russia won their first gold of the Olympics in the team skating, thanks to winning performances from vet Evgeni Plushenko and new superstar, 15-year-old Yulia Lipnitskaya. Gracie Gold took home the silver in the individual women’s short program, and Charlie White and Meryl Davis won the pair’s ice dancing, but neither of those victories were able to help the U.S. earn better than a bronze medal. Meanwhile, Jamie Anderson won the first ever women’s slopestyle gold medal, and her fellow American Sage Kotsenberg did the same in the men’s competition on Saturday; however, gold medal favorite Bode Miller placed a disappointing eighth in the men’s downhill. What Your Friends Will Be Talking About: Ashley Wagner Is Not Impressed, the sequel to 2012’s Olympic meme McKayla Maroney Is Not Impressed. Expect it to appear in your Twitter feed at least once a day for the next two weeks. How To Fake It: “How insane is that 15-year-old skater? Although, I thought Gracie Gold’s score could have been a bit higher. And Meryl and Charlie have that pairs gold in the bag.” “I just really feel like Jamie Anderson and I could be friends. She seems so cool, and she’s super talented.” “Can you believe what happened to Bode Miller?”
THE BEATLES 50TH ANNIVERSARY TRIBUTE
You Watched This If: You don’t listen to the Top 40 drivel on the radio, you listen to “real music.” What Happened: Musicians from all different genres got together to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles’ first appearance on the Ed Sullivan show, the Eurythmics reunited, as did Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr for a few of their greatest hits. What Your Friends Will Be Talking About: The return of Pharell’s giant Grammys hat – the event was filmed the day after the awards, in the midst of the hat jokes. How to Fake It: “Doesn’t Dhani Harrison sound just like George?” “Who decided to have Pharell and Brad Paisley sing together?” “I know ‘Hey Jude’ is overplayed, but it was cool to see everyone sing it with Paul and Ringo.”
You Watched This If: You constantly feel as if nobody appreciates your creative genius. What Happened: Hannah took a job in the advertising department of GQ, which prompted her to worry about her selling out, and wasting her talents in a pointless corporate environment. Adam got a call back for an acting gig that he swears he doesn’t want, Marnie and Ray are becoming closer, despite embodying everything the other despises, Shoshanna is missing Ray and is forcing herself into a relationship with a guy she met at school who she thinks is incredibly dumb, and Jessa… didn’t do much of anything this week. What Your Friends Will Be Talking About: How much they can't stand Hannah. Also how Marnie continues to be the worst. Wow, your friends really hate Girls.How to Fake It: “I kind of hate to admit this, because she’s super self-involved, but I kind of get where Hannah’s coming from.” “Ugh, Marnie is so annoying, but Allison Williams is so pretty.” “Did you know that Shoshanna’s new guy is played by Zosia Mamet’s real-life boyfriend?”
You Watched This If: You truly believe that everything from the UK is vastly superior to its American equivalent, and you won't listen to anyone who says otherwise. What Happened: Lady Edith considered terminating her unexpected pregnancy, but changed her mind at the last minute after seeing how the procedure affected other women at the clinic. Lady Mary has decided to be less “aloof,” and fed some pigs with Charles, and she helped secure Thomas the position of Robert’s valet while he’s in America. Anna continues to pretend she was attacked by a random thug, but Bates has figured out who was really behind the assault on his wife, and he’s probably going to kill him. And the Dowager Countess continues to be sassy and wonderful. What Your Friends Will Be Talking About: Can you believe that Downton Abbey actually broached an abortion storyline? How To Fake It: “Oh, poor Edith! I really want something nice to happen to her for a change.” “I’m glad Bates is going to protect Anna, but I don’t know if I can sit through another Bates-is-a-murderer-storyline.”
You Watched This If: You’re just really into the McConaughssance, okay? What Happened: Rust and Marty discover that Ledoux is working for the Iron Crusaders, a biker gang that Rust infiltrated during his time undercover. He decides to go undercover again, steals cocaine from evidence to help sell his act, and he agrees to take part in a robbery in order to win over his contact. Unfortunately, the robbery goes wrong, and Rust is forced to run, calling in Marty for backup. Meanwhile, Marty’s ex-girlfriend showed up at his house and revealed everything to Maggie, who promptly kicked him out. What Your Friends Will Be Talking About: That twist of an ending. Let’s be real, it’s all anyone will be talking about. Be prepared for people to declare it the “hands down, best episode of television ever!” How to Fake It: “How crazy was that ending? I couldn’t believe it when it all went south and Rust was caught in the middle of the whole thing. I can’t wait for the next episode, I need to find out what happens next!”
THE WALKING DEAD
You Watched This If: You are, somehow, still holding out for this show to get good again.What Happened: Rick and Carl hole up in an abandoned suburban house, growing tense over the latter's budding contentiousness. Michonne has acid flashbacks and slaughters an entire herd of zombies. There's a big can of pudding.What Your Friends Will Be Talking About: How much Carl sucks, and Michonne's nightmarish memory of her pre-apocalyptic days.How to Fake It: “F**king Carl.”
Tim Mcgraw, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban will already be winners when they arrive at the Country Music Association Awards on Wednesday evening (06Nov13) - their song, Highway Don't Care has earned them trophies for Music Video of the Year and Musical Event of the Year. The musicians' big wins were announced during a live telecast on TV show Good Morning America early on Wednesday, hours before the launch of the show, which will take place in Nashville, Tennessee.
This is the second early award for Swift - on Monday (04Nov13), she became the second artist ever to be presented with the Pinnacle Award, which recognises musicians who have made a significant impact on the industry.
Actress Lisa Kudrow has confessed to undergoing a nose job at the tender age of 16. The former Friends star, 50, reveals the rhinoplasty was a necessary procedure because it helped to transform her "hideous" looks and aid her transition to a new school.
She tells America's The Saturday Evening Post publication, "That (operation) was life altering. I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous. I did it the summer before going to a new high school. So there were plenty of people who wouldn't know how hideous I looked before. That was a good, good, good change."
The plastic surgery came after a tough time in Kudrow's life, when she learned just how mean kids could be - after she was ditched by her two best friends.
She explains, "That happened in seventh grade when we moved from sixth grade to a new school. So they knew some people, and I didn't. Eventually they just got tired of me being a tag-along. They said, 'For your own good, you need to see what would happen if we weren't here.' It was really brutal. Very hard.
"It was just mean. And all of junior high felt upside down to me. It was not, like, the nice people who were popular; it wasn't the most entertaining people - it was the meanest people who were popular."
Hollywood actor Sir Ben Kingsley is worried students are no longer interested in the works of William Shakespeare because they do not get the chance to see his plays performed. The Gandhi star insists more needs to be done by education bosses to stimulate pupils' interest in Shakespeare's plays in a bid to benefit the next generation of actors.
The Oscar winner, who was a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) for 15 years, tells the London Evening Standard, "I think we must be very, very careful not to relegate Shakespeare to the past and dismiss him as obsolete... After leaving the RSC and before I did Gandhi, I had the privilege of visiting schools in America with a group of Shakespearean actors.
"And instead of bashing their way through the text, we walked into the classroom and we performed scenes in the classroom for them. The pupils were slapping their hands on their foreheads and saying, 'Wow, that's what he meant!'
"A good actor, a focused actor, can unlock a 400 to 500-year old text and make it hit you as you've never heard it before. A short answer to the question of whether we need to do more to stimulate the interest of children is 'Yes please', but let it be done under the right conditions."
So, the 2013 Emmys were very, um, interesting. There were some standard Neil Patrick Harris song and dance numbers, some off-colored gay jokes from Michael Douglas, an oddly dressed Melissa Leo, and Sarah Silverman being, well, Sarah Silverman. And as for the actual award portion of the show? Well, it was filled with a few pleasant surprises and some head-scratching upsets. In the words of NPH: "This just in. Nobody in America is winning their Emmy office pool. Surprises galore." Yup, that sounds about right. Here's our take on the five biggest surprises of the Emmys:
Supporting Actress - ComedyWinner: Merritt Wever, Nurse Jackie
Merritt Wever, a newcomer to the Emmy race, was probably the most surprised person in the room when her name was called. It was definitely an upset (albeit, a good one) that Wever took home the award, considering she was up against Jane Krakowski of 30 Rock and Sofia Vergara and Julie Bowen of Modern Family. And as a bonus, Wever gave the audience and viewers at home possibly the shortest and funniest speech of all time: "Thank you so much. Thank you so much. I gotta go... bye!" (If you're wondering why she looks so familiar, you've probably been watching her bring out Schmidt's inner nice guy on New Girl.)
Supporting Actor - ComedyWinner: Tony Hale, Veep
Heyyy, brother. In one of the most pleasant surprises of the night, Tony Hale (of Arrested Development fame) took home the Emmy for his role on Veep, beating out Bill Hader of Saturday Night Live and basically the entire male cast of Modern Family. Bonus: He made Julia Louis-Dreyfus' acceptance speech for Lead Actress in a Comedy one of the most memorable of the evening by assisting her during her speech, a la his right hand man character from the HBO comedy.
Supporting Actor - DramaWinner: Bobby Cannavale, Boardwalk Empire
Are they just repeating all the nominees? That's what we were all thinking when Bobby Cannavale, who plays Gyp Rosetti on Boardwalk Empire, nabbed the Emmy from the hands of Aaron Paul, Peter Dinklage, and Mandy Patinkin. Even more surprising, he's apparently dating Rose Byrne from Bridesmaids.
Lead Actor - DramaWinner: Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom
So let's get this straight. Somehow, Jeff Daniels' performance in the first season (that's the worst one) of The Newsroom wowed the voters more than Kevin Spacey's Francis Underwood, Damian Lewis' Nicholas Brody, Jon Hamm's Don Draper, and Bryan Cranston's Walter White? What? And to top it all off, Daniels ferociously chewed a piece of gum during his acceptance speech. Heisenberg and Underwood would never let that fly.
Variety SeriesWinner: The Colbert Report
And in one of the best surprises of the night, Stephen Colbert finally put an end to The Daily Show's reign of victory with a win for the team at The Colbert Report. Looks like Jon Stewart shouldn't have taken such a long vacation...

A Complete History Of Twerking (1993-2013) (Vh1)20 Grisliest TV Deaths of 2012-2013 (Vulture)
Thomas Vinterberg, writer and director of 1998's acclaimed film The Celebration, returns to push the bounds of human empathy with The Hunt. Starring Mads Mikkelsen as Lucas, a kindergarten teacher wrongly accused of molesting a young student, The Hunt is a fascinating, frustrating, and enlightening look at what happens when gossip and finger-pointing overshadow the truth.
Vinterberg tells Hollywood.com that the idea for the film was born when a particularly insistent psychiatrist "came knocking at my door." Vinterberg says, "I had just moved into this posh neighborhood and he said, 'You did The Celebration, then there's another film you you have to do.' And I said thank you and good evening."
It wasn't for another five or six years that Vinterberg – in search of a psychiatrist himself — read the files the psychiatrist dropped on his doorstep. "I was shocked by it," Vinterberg said of the myriad cases involving accusations of sexual abuse. "And, unfortunately, there's a huge pond of these cases in this country and they're all even more horrifying than anything in my movie … I never do films for moral reasons, but here I slightly felt a moral obligation towards the kids that are being violated by these kind of cases. You must imagine being a child, being interrogated, being sent to the gynecologist, seeing your mother cry, seeing someone you really like go to prison, ending up with this false illusion that you're a victim, ending up believing it. I find that disturbing. And these kids end up with the same kinds of problems as those who have actually experienced [abuse]. So then I thought, let's do the antithesis of this."
To bring his story to life, Vinterberg needed to find the perfect actors for his two central roles of Lucas and Klara (Lucas' young false accuser). He found them in Mikkelsen and seven-year-old Annika Wedderkopp. To achieve a realistic, natural performance from Wedderkopp, Vinterberg didn't shy away from explaining his film's dark subject material to her. "We told her everything except for anything sexual, meaning that we told her she's been lying about it and that everybody's angry and that she's done something bad," Vinterberg says. "We thought that was the right thing to do because she would experience all this anger towards her in shooting the film and she needed to know why."
In contrast to Wedderkopp's sweet, innocent-looking (but untruthful) Klara is Mikkelsen as Lucas. While Mikkelsen's severe look usually lands him the role of the villain — most notably as Le Chiffre in Casino Royal and the titular character on NBC's Hannibal — he brought a softness and compassion to Lucas that Vinterberg didn't expect. "The character written in the script, he was a tough blacksmith, man of few words, written with a young De Niro from The Deer Hunter in mind, independent and strong," Vinterberg says. "And when Mads came on board I thought, well, you'll never really write a script about a teacher, it's not really sexy. But [Mads] is so much sex and so much manlihood, so much testosterone, that I found it actually interesting to reverse that. I'm glad we did because I thought it was heartbreaking what he did to that part."
The ultimate example of Mikkelsen's — and therein Lucas' — vulnerability on display comes in a scene in the film's third act where Lucas attends church on Christmas Eve. Surrounded by his former friends and current persecutors, listening to a children's choir (which includes Klara) sing a hymn, Lucas breaks down. The scene is a turning point for the film and one that stays with audiences long after the final credits roll. "First of all, we prepared by talking about the scene, what motivates him to go the church. Mads needs to know this is real, not just something for the plot, so we talked a lot about that," Vinterberg says of preparing to film the emotionally draining scene. "We went over and over it, we did rehearsals, and he's just damn good. If any of these things would have been missing, it would not have been possible."
"The thing Mads and I have in common is this thing about justice," Vinterberg continues. "If something is unjust, we really get angry and stubborn. It may even be a Scandinavian thing, but at least we share it. He's got that, Mads, privately as well … A little bit [of that came through] in the church. 'Don't tell me I can't go to church, because I didn't do anything. Don't sit back there and talk about me.' And when he sees Klara and starts crying, I guess it's about Mads' technique. He did that 21 times, each time equally great, every time. He's just really good."
The cast's stunning, effortless performances as well as the film's indoctrination of Danish customs and habits not only evoke a real sense of place but lend the film an honesty. While we know these characters to be fictional, we can't help but feel that they really could exist, that they are living somewhere in Scandinavia's brisk landscape. "When we decided to do [the film] in Denmark, we of course dug into the soil of Denmark, all the rituals, the behaviors, and ways of being," Vinterberg says.
But the horrifying plot, of course, is not distinct to Denmark. "This whole thing about being guilty by suspicion is very present over here [in the States] as well," Vinterberg says. "It's even tougher here; people take justice into their own hands in America. So they put up posters and faces on the Internet of people who've never been convicted. That wouldn't happen in Europe as much, I don't think."
And so it was in the snowy woods and frozen lakes of Denmark that The Hunt was brought to life. "One thing is the plot, the other thing is to create a world around these people and a world around this film," Vinterberg says. "You have to build a past around the film so that when the audience leaves the cinema they know about these characters and feel that they've been there forever and they're going to continue to be there. And that is the majority of my work, to create something that stands out as being lively as possible — and that is all, of course, incredibly Danish."

Just as we were finishing up our vocal warmups in anticipation of jamming out to Mariah Carey's upcoming album The Art of Letting Go, we were informed that we now have more time to rehearse. The sexy songstress is pushing back the relase of her 11th album because she needs a wee bit more time to make sure her record is flawless, rather than just amazing. Carey felt too rushed with the production of the album, which was originally scheduled to debut July 23rd, so she's decided to hit the pause button on its release.
Monday evening, Carey took to Twitter to share that, "While making this album, I got so immersed in the creative process that I just don't feel I would be doing it justice to release it on 7/23." She went on to disclose, "I'd rather not exclude meaningful songs. I want to give you this album as it's meant to be heard. When I'm ready, you'll be the first to know!"
Although it's definitely a bummer that we have to wait to hear any new tunes from the Grammy Award-winning belter, at least the album will be fully crafted and up to Carey's standards when it finally swoops into iTunes.
While we impatiently wait for her record, here are some of Mariah's most memorable – and sexiest – music videos to distract us from our album deprivation.
#Beautiful feat. MiguelCarey's latest jam featuring Miguel boosts our energy with an awesome feel-good vibe... and she sure looks great posing on that motorcycle. Dayum!
We Belong TogetherMariah looks awfully sensual in her video for her most acclaimed track with her tousled hair and water dripping all over her. Eric Roberts shows up as her husband-to-be in a wedding scene that leaves her ex-lover in utter disarray.
Touch My BodyThe video stars Jack McBrayer of 30 Rock fame as a computer nerd fantasizing over touching MC's bangin' bod. Oh yeah, there's a totally epic unicorn in the middle of the hilarious vid, too!
HeartbreakerIf the video itself doesn't take you right back to the good ol' days of middle school dances, Mariah's butterfly clips certainly will.
FantasyIn this cutesy vid of Mariah, we watch her glide on skates and sing sweet music as she throws her head back in joy on a rollercoaster at the amusement park.
Bonus: All I Want For Christmas (Is You)I might be Jewish, but when the holiday season rolls around, I still love rocking out to everyone's all-time favorite Christmas jam. And yes, all every guy wants for Christmas is you, Mariah! Nick Cannon, you Better watch out!

After explosions went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon leaving three dead and 144 injured, it seemed fair that TV's late night hosts would start their opening monologues not with jokes, but with some words about the day's tragic events. While Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman, and Jay Leno aired reruns Monday night, Conan O'Brien (originally from Boston), Jimmy Kimmel, and Craig Ferguson jumped right in to discussing the pain of the shocking bombings.
Conan O'Brien: "We have a great show for you tonight. But first, I did want to start by mentioning what an upsetting and sad day it has been. I'm talking about what happened in Boston. Boston's my hometown. It’s where I grew up. It’s where my family lives. So I wanted to take a moment to say that like everyone here, my thoughts and prayers are with the people of Boston and everybody who has been affected by this absolutely senseless act. It's important to say, right up top. That said, it is our job to do a show, and we’re going to try and entertain you the vey best we can. Which, given our track record, gives you people a 20% chance of having a good show tonight."
Jimmy Kimmel: "Well, it was a terrible day. Very bad things happened today for no good reason. And our thoughts are with the people of Boston and everyone who is suffering as a result of the bombings at the marathon. It’s a disgusting thing. I don’t understand it. But my job is to make you laugh, so I will try to do that. And I will probably fail. I’m failing already.
Craig Ferguson: "Hey everybody, good evening. Tonight’s show is a little bit different. Obviously the news of today is so horrendous that it would seem insensitive at best to say, ‘It’s a great day for America,’ so I won’t be starting the show with that tonight. Is anyone else sick of this sh**? I seem to have to say that too often."
Ferguson continued, "People say to me, ‘Craig, your job is to make people laugh at the end of the day.’ And I think, yes, that’s true, but I’ve never professed to be any damn good at that. And, the thing is, people want their mind taken off it. And I think, 'Well OK, if you want your mind taken off it, you know, watch a cartoon or a video or something.' I understand it, it’s perfectly acceptable. I don’t think it’s a terrible thing to not want to think about it, but I can’t not think about it."
"Also, I have a personal connection with the city of Boston," Ferguson added. "I have some history there. I have family there. When I became an American citizen in 2008, I spoke at Faneuil Hall on July 4, at the invitation of Tommy Menino who is the mayor of Boston, and one of the more colorful characters in American politics… I’ve been there for the Fourth of July many times… and every cop in Boston looks like I’m his brother. My first stand up special in America, I shot it in Boston. I like that town. I’m appalled by this thing, and when I watch it on these streets that I know... it’s horrifying."
He ended his opening monologue with: "If I have all this inside of me. If I have all this rage and anger and distress and upset inside of me, I’m not a good enough comedian to hide all that from you."

The network's primetime pgorams — Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Greta van Susteren — will all be live and focus on the bombing. Bill Hemmer will anchor from Boston in the morning. Over on the Fox Business Network, Neil Cavuto will anchor a special live report starting at 8PM ET.- NBC News has announced that NBC Nightly News will also extend to a full hour tonight.
