It appears that actor turned Trump superfan Scott Baio has more in common with the current POTUS than everyone thought, as allegations of molestation have surfaced from one of his former co-stars. Scott’s Charles in Charge co-star Nicole Eggert is claiming that he molested her back in the day.
It all started on Twitter when Nicole responded to a tweet from user @tonyposnanski. He made a joke about Scott not being able to accompany his boo Trump to Switzerland, to which Nicole replied with:

The tweet garnered tons of responses from many in the Twitterverse and Nicole had much to say (but later deleted a few of the tweets), including that Scott allegedly molested her from the age of 14 to 17. In another now-deleted tweet, Nicole claimed that Scott fingered her when she was just 14. He was 26 at the time. Scott took a break from jerking off to Trump’s inauguration video to respond to Nicole’s allegations in a Facebook Live video. And he wasn’t alone either. His wife and partner in insanity Renee Baio was off camera coaching him through the video like the worst stage mom ever.
“I’m going to knock down all these false claims against me. My reputation is being damaged. My family is being put through this and I’m done. I’m done. So, I’m going to walk you through this methodically and hopefully succinctly and please be patient because what I’m being accused of is horrible”
Unfortunately, his explanation was far from succinct. In the sixteen minute video, Scott went into detail about how Nicole originally came forward with her allegations in 2012 and 2013 while promoting three reality TV shows. Eventually the accusations died down, and then in November of last year, she and their former Charles in Charge co-star Alexander Polinsky decided to team up and bring those allegations back up once again. Scott’s legal team responded by telling them that they need to call the po-po if they have a claim.
According to Scott, he never molested Nicole when she was a minor and he provided a sound bite from an interview she did with Nik Ritchie Radio back in 2013. In the clip, Nicole claims she lost her virginity to Scott. However Scott claims that Nicole was the one who was truly in charge, because she seduced him after turning 18. Scott says “Now, any normal, heterosexual, red-blooded, American guy… the outcome would have been the same, the same thing would have happened. She seduced me. She came in the house and started kissing me.”
Scott said that Nicole was planning to talk about her allegations against him on an episode of Dr. Oz that was supposed to tape this month. But Nicole’s episode was canceled after his lawyers sent them a threatening letter. TMZ also planned to do a story about it, but Harvey Levin dropped that idea after talking to his fellow Trump lover Scott Baio.
Throughout the video Scott is furnishing a ton of documents while Renee shouts out shit like, “Read the disgusting questions they asked!”, and “Play the tapes!!” Shit’s hilarious, yet sad and desperate, because well, Scott and his wife are involved. And Scott looks like he wants to scream “Shut The Fuck Up!” while he’s trying to get his point across.
Renee decided to keep the drama going by tweeting a few of the million pages of documentation from the video to her personal Twitter account, along with this 2015 tweet from Nicole:

This whole story leaves me scratching my head in confusion. It’s a mess. But I think the most surprising part of this story is that Scott Baio can afford a lawyer.
If you’ve got 16 minutes and 11 seconds to waste, and can take looking at present day Scott Baio for that long, here’s the video:
