Cosby's daughter defends dad: "He is the father you thought you knew"

Bill Cosby will not face charges after a woman claimed the comedian molested her when she was 15-years-old at the Playboy Mansion. Prosecutors say the 40-year-old case does not fall within the statute of limitations. This new development comes just as Bill Cosby's daughter released a statement supporting her father.

CNN's Jean Casarez is OutFront with more on what Evin Cosby is now saying.

Cosby's wife breaks her silence: "Who is the victim?"

The wife of Bill Cosby is coming to her husband's defense.

In a statement, Camille Cosby questions the credibility of the more than 20 women who say they were drugged and or raped by her husband.

She then compares the accusations to the story of an alleged gang rape at the University of Virginia, writing about the Rolling Stone Article.

"The story was heart-breaking, but ultimately appears to be proved to be untrue. Many in the media were quick to link that story to stories about my husband – until that story unwound."

Legal analyst and attorney Lisa Bloom is OutFront. She represents Janice Dickinson, a supermodel who has accused Bill Cosby of rape.

What drugs did Cosby allegedly use?

Famed 70s supermodel Beverly Johnson is the latest of at least 23 women making accusations against comedian Bill Cosby.

Johnson told CNN about a meeting she had with Cosby at his home in the 1980s when Cosby was starring on "The Cosby Show." She says she was offered an audition for a small role on the hit program.

The supermodel claims she was working through acting exercises - including one in which she acted drunk - in front of the comedian when he asked her to have a drink from his espresso machine.

Famed Model Beverly Johnson claims Bill Cosby drugged her

"He was very insistent that I try this cappuccino that would be the best coffee that I would ever have. So I relented and he gave me the cappuccino. I took one sip and I felt something very strange," Johnson said. "After that second sip, I knew I had been drugged. It was very powerful. It came on very quickly."

"I knew by the second sip of the drink Cosby had given me that I'd been drugged - and drugged good," she writes in Vanity Fair.

Johnson is not charging Cosby with sexual assault, but her story about a drugged drink mirrors the stories of many of the other accusers.

Famed Model Beverly Johnson claims Bill Cosby drugged her

(CNN) - In an essay for Vanity Fair, famed model Beverly Johnson accuses Bill Cosby of drugging her in a meeting at his Manhattan residence in the 1980s - adding herself to the list of women who have made accusations against the comedian in recent weeks.

"For a long time I thought it was something that only happened to me, and that I was somehow responsible. So I kept my secret to myself, believing this truth needed to remain in the darkness," she writes. "Now that other women have come forward with their nightmare stories, I join them."

Bill Cosby accuser files defamation suit

Bill Cosby and one of his accusers are in a stand-off over the truth. Tamara Green, who alleges the famed comedian drugged and sexually assaulted her in the 1970s, is suing Cosby for defamation.

This is what she says happened when Erin Burnett recently spoke with her:

"It was like hand to hand combat," Green said. "I didn't know if he was going to kill me or rape me or - I knew he had his clothes off and he was trying to get in bed with me." Green continued, "he sexually assaulted me and did all kinds of things."

Cosby, through his attorney, claims her allegations are false and the incident did not happen. Green wants her name restored and is suing the 77-year-old for defaming her credibility.

By CNN's count, at least 20 women have gone public with accusations. Cosby has never been charged.

OutFront, Joseph Cammarata is the attorney representing Tamara Green in her defamation lawsuit against Bill Cosby. He represented Paula Jones in her sexual harassment lawsuit against former President Bill Clinton. He joins me now.
