Bill Cosby Accuser Beverly Johnson Visits Howard Stern's SiriusXM Radio Show

Supermodel Beverly Johnson stopped by the Howard Stern SiriusXM radio show to talk about her modeling career, past relationships and briefly recounts almost being sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby.

Beverly Johnson was the first African-American model on the cover if Vogue and went through her fair share of rocky relationships and even an encounter with Bill Cosby which she spoke about in the interview with Stern. The conversation began with a discussion about beauty and how people only see glitz and glam but never really see the person behind the photos.

Johnson admitted that she didn't think she was good looking enough to be a model until she was convinced by some girls from Northeastern University.

She says she saw these girls making $75 and hour which was comparable to what here father made in a week.

"Howard said a lot of girls get ripped off by these fake modeling agencies and schools. Beverly said that there aren't many professions where you can make that kind of money," according to MarksFriggin.

"Howard said Beverly's dad thought she was going to New York to become a hooker when she said she was going there to model.

She said he didn't believe it existed. She said he said no and her mother went against him and went to New York."

The conversation transitioned into her early meeting with Eileen Ford who told her that she would never make it as a model because she was too fat. Instead of signing with Ford, Johnson decided to go with Wilomena models instead and later on broke through after covering Vogue.

Johnson said told Stern she didn't have to sleep her way up to the top but Stern then turned to a story about a married man who "started molesting her" at her door.

She said that she does trust men despite the things that have happened to her.

"She said that you have to have an open heart and not harbor anger and bitterness. Howard asked if she is religious. Beverly said she's spiritual," according to MarksFriggin.

Johnson also told her story about her battle with addiction.

Stern said a lot of models did cocaine to keep their weight under control and Johnson insisted that while she was told it wasn't addictive, it was and she had to attend a 12 step program following an overdose.

In terms of her relationships Johnson says that she regrets not being with Bob Marley because he blew her mind and the "coolest of the cool," not going out with Arthur Ashe and meeting Mike Tyson when he was 19.

She said that she told Tyson she would ave sex with him if he won his fights.

Stern finally addressed the elephant in the room which was Johnson being one of the women that spoke out and accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault.

"Beverly said she was coming out of a relationship with a not so nice guy and you know how callus a person like that can be. She said you want to pick your battles in life," according to MarksFriggin.

"Howard said Beverly is one of the lucky ones. Howard said she had the same M.O. as the other women. Howard said she came up to act with Cosby and he wanted her to drink something and he drugged her. Howard said she was woozy but somehow fought him off."

The entertaining discussion found Johnson's early years in modeling were explored, as well as relationships that could have been and a very scary encounter with Cosby.

Johnson also appeared on the show to push her book, The Face That Changed It All: A Memoir, in which she details most of the topics discussed in the interview, according to Stern.
