'Baywatch' actor Eggert accuses Baio of molestation

Scott Baio appears on a Facebook Live stream to address sexual assault and misconduct allegations on Jan. 27 2018

The accusations resurfaced in 2017, and Baio help up two letters that he and his legal team sent to Eggert and their Charles in Charge costar Alexander Polinsky when, he said, they "decided to team up against" him. The two actors dated briefly in the late 1980s when they starred together in the show.

The pair starred together on Charles in Charge, which ran from 1984 to 1990, on which Baio played the title character and Nicole played Jamie, one of the children college student Charles became a caretaker for when he moved into a house off-campus.

The actor said that Eggert was recently scheduled to go on the Dr. Oz show, and a producer had contacted him about her claims. She asserted that Baio sexually abused her between the ages of 14 and 17, and in one reply to a Twitter user, she asked, "What is ur explanation for him fingering me at age 14?"

Eggert made the accusations in a series of tweets Saturday morning.

She then accused the Joanie Loves Chachi star of digitally penetrating her, starting at the age of 14.

In response, Baio took to Facebook Live to address the claims as well as posting a series of documents he claims proves Eggert's allegations are false.

In the Facebook live video filmed by his wife, Baio sat at a desk and said that his "reputation was being damaged" and that what he was being accused of was "horrible".

Eggert has gone on the record in the past saying that Baio took her virginity, but Baio insists that she "seduced" him when she was 18. Baio's wife tweeted that their legal team had served Eggert with "more than 2" cease-and-desist letters. "Any normal heterosexual, red-blooded American guy, the outcome would have been the same".

Eggert first made the claims publicly in 2012 and 2013 while promoting her work on reality TV. "There is a special unit there that handles this kind of stuff", Baio said, adding, "If you have a real claim, you go to the real people, not to social media where people like me get beat up." he added.

"Now go prove it or disprove it", Baio said.

'I don't know what else to put out there. "She's my best friend in the world, then all of a sudden I'm the bogeyman", he said. The problem with nearly all he said/she said cases is they're he said, she said.
