She also denied suggestions there was any kind of a romantic relationship between her and Cosby.
Damage Control?: The prosecution introduced into evidence two calls Cosby's team made after Constand and her mother confronted him about the the encounter in question. Cosby helped her to the couch, where Constand said he sexually assaulted her. She says they were friends for about 16 months before he sexually assaulted her. She awakened to find Cosby groping her and penetrating her with his hand.
"That's not what I said", Constand shot back, adding that she crossed that line out before signing the statement. "Yes, there were calls", Constand conceded.
A lawyer's notes from a two-decade-old deposition appear to contradict a woman's testimony about when she says Bill Cosby drugged and violated her at a posh Los Angeles hotel bungalow.

"Tell the truth", Constand said. "So I just went along with them".
During one exchange, Cosby lawyer Angela Agrusa suggested that Constand once enjoyed a romantic dinner at Cosby's home before the alleged assault.

After the incident, Constand acknowledged under questioning from both sides that she maintained contact with Cosby but said she felt obligated to do so because of her job.
His recollection of her testimony largely matched what Johnson had testified to the day before, undermining defense efforts to attack her credibility.
"Her father didn't want her to be humiliated and feel shame and embarrassment as he had seen other women go through when they went to the police at that time. He didn't want that", Sewell said.
