Nicole Eggert will appear on CBS’ The Talk on Wednesday, February 7, 2018, to discuss her recent allegations of child molestation against actor Scott Baio. Baio and Eggert appeared on the sitcom Charles in Charge between 1986 and 1990.
Eggert states that Baio began sexually grooming her from the time she joined the cast at 14-years-old. Baio was 25. Accompanied by good friend Alex Polinsky, who is a reported witness to the alleged abuse, Eggert officially filed a police report against Scott Baio with the Los Angeles Police Department on Feb. 6, 2018.
Nicole Eggert announced her appearance on The Talk via a tweet. She also stated that she was emotionally drained from the events that transpired on Tuesday.
Scott Baio has denied all allegations of sexual misconduct and has admitted to having sex with Nicole Eggert once. He states that there was never any inappropriate contact between them during the filming of Charles in Charge.
On January 27, 2018, Nicole Eggert created a firestorm of controversy when she responded to a tweet by Tony Posnanski and referred to Baio as a creep. She replied to the tweet and stated, “Ask Scott Baio what happened in his garage when I was a child. Creep.”
She included Scott Baio in her tweet; he immediately took notice.
In December 2017, Alexander Polinsky stirred controversy when he sent out a string of mysterious tweets stating he wanted to get in touch with Baio to discuss incidents that took place on the Charles in Charge set. Though he referred to different types of abuse occurring on set, he never specifically accused Baio of committing any acts.
He soon removed his tweets and chose not to discuss Scott Baio or the case online. The January 27, 2018, tweet by Nicole Eggert reignited the debate and Scott Baio soon offered his own defense.
Calling it a nite. Emotionally drained but an extremely productive day 🙂 please tune in tomorrow to The Talk where the lovely ladies have invited me to share the latest updates. Sweet happy dreams ❤️ #takemyhand @takemyhand19

The next step will be for the Los Angeles Police Department to conduct a thorough investigation regarding the allegations. The investigation will include getting witness’ statements and testimonies, such as those provided by Alexander Polinsky and others who have come forward to support Nicole Eggert.
According to recent estimations, Nicole has six witnesses willing to come forward and her attorney Lisa Bloom has asked for anyone else with firsthand or inside information to speak up as well.
The L.A.P.D. will contact Scott Baio and attempt to interview him to get his side of the story. Baio has publicly denied the allegations and has vehemently opposed Nicole Eggert and Alexander Polinsky publicly for coming forward.
He states he has no reason why they are saying he abused Nicole and filed cease and desists on the pair.
Fans of Nicole Eggert and Scott Baio are not remaining silent on the issue and have sounded off on Twitter regarding the allegations.
