Nicole Eggert doubles down on Scott Baio sexual assault claims

Nicole Eggert doubles down on Scott Baio sexual assault claims

They had intercourse for the first time when she was 17 years old while the show was still on, according to Eggert.

In the Dr. Oz interview obtained by TMZ, Eggert says that Baio told her he could help her get ready to have sexual relations with boys her own age. "We started filming the show in 1986, when I was 14, and he immediately took to me, and befriended me, and gained my trust".

Nicole Eggert has given her first TV interview about her sexual misconduct claims against her Charles in Charge co-star Scott Baio, explaining why she "covered up" the alleged behavior for years.

The actress, who is 11 years younger than Baio, told Megyn Kelly on Tuesday that the actor digitally penetrated her in his vehicle in his garage when she was just 14. "For me, it was always about protecting the show", she added.

Baio denied the allegations pretty vehemently, claiming that he had sex with her, but only once, and that it was consensual and after she was 18.

After the tweet, Baio posted a 16-minute-long video on Facebook denying the allegations, citing previous statements Eggert had made about their relationship. Eggert alleges that the abuse took place during their time on the sitcom, Charles in Charge, in which Baio was the lead actor, Charles. She said it got to the point that other people would allegedly ask her if she and Scott were dating.

"Shame plays such a weird part and such a strong voice, and you lie", Eggert said. Keep in mind that Scott is 11 years older than Nicole, and was playing a college student nannying her and her onscreen siblings.

Alexander Polinsky, who also starred in "Charles in Charge", told "Megyn Kelly Today" that he had witnessed "inappropriate cuddling" between Eggert and Baio on the set. "She said, 'He molested me as a child and I didn't know any better'". But, she said, they didn't have "a good reaction". It's illegal. I'll go to jail'. He produced two letters from his attorneys, dated a year ago, to Eggert and Charles in Charge co-star Alexander Polinsky, who Baio claims "decided to team up against" him, telling them both to go to the police if they had legitimate claims.

Eggert says she has spoken with Polinsky, as well as other castmembers, about their experiences on the show.

Adam Carl, who worked on the show in '88, tweeted his support for Eggert and recalled her recounting the abuse. "Once you start getting into a Twitter war it just gets messy and ugly", she said.

Baio did a live video on his Facebook page Sunday, Jan. 28, where he addressed Eggert's statements and gave his version of the story.
