Nicole Eggert Reveals What Scott Baio Did to Her as a Teenager

We told you yesterday about how Scott Baio basically lost his mind when Nicole Eggert, his Charles in Charge co-star, accused him of molesting her when she was a minor. Well, Nicole went on Megyn Kelly Today and explained to Not Katie Couric just what happened. Variety had the details.

“He started expressing his love for me and talking about marriage and the future,” Eggert said of when she was 14 years old. According to Eggert, the sexual abuse started before her 15th birthday when “we were at his house in his car in his garage, and he reached over and penetrated me with his finger.”

All these stories seem to have a common thread. “We were in his car and he started penetrating me with his finger.” Who does that? Just setting aside the fact that she was 14, why are guys just pulling their dicks out or going straight to fingering? We use baseball metaphors like second base because there’s supposed to be a progression in how sexual encounters go. You round the bases, you don’t just toss your bat to the side and start fingering the catcher, that isn’t going to end well for anyone.

Eggert also claimed that she and Baio started having sex when she was 17, not 18 as the actor has claimed. It’s probably an important difference because unlike most states, California’s age of consent is 18. If Charles in Charge had been filmed in Nevada, it wouldn’t really matter.

“There’s no doubt in my mind,” Eggert said when Kelly asked her if she was in fact a minor when she first had sexual intercourse with Baio, which she said he initiated. “It wasn’t a hold-me-down rape me situation, but I was 17. … I just wasn’t ready to tell my story. … It was upsetting. It wasn’t a good experience at all. … It was at my house in my spare bedroom, he laid down a towel and it happened there.”

Of course, Scott Baio handled this like a mature adult… nah, just kidding, fam, he went on a weird rant on Facebook Live from behind a desk like he thinks he’s actually Bob Loblaw.

Soon after, Baio defended himself on Facebook Live, saying Eggert’s accusations have damaged his reputation and are impacting his family. He called Eggert’s allegations “lies,” and recalled back to the garage incident — though his side of the story is that Eggert “seduced” him. “If you have a real claim, you go to the real people, not social media, where people like me get beat up,” Baio said in his Facebook Live video.

Oh, and he tried the old “I’m being persecuted for being a Republican!” shtick. If we really were trying to bring down Republicans in Hollywood, why are there no scandals involving Kelsey Grammar or Patty Heaton? You know, actually successful actors who are openly Republicans. Why is this vast left-wing conspiracy only targeting hacks with very little actual talent instead of Republicans who might actually get work?

Oh, and Scott definitely has the crazy eyes, look at him. If I had to choose who to believe based just on what I saw here I would for sure go with Eggert, she doesn’t come off like Alex Jones on a five-day meth bender, unlike some people.
