All eyes are on former reality TV star and actor Scott Baio after actress Nicole Eggert accused him of sexually molesting her as a child on Twitter.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Ask <a href="https://twitter.com/ScottBaio?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@scottbaio</a> what happened in his garage at his house when I was a minor.

Eggert claims in her tweets that Baio molested her when she was 14-years-old and a co-star on the show Charles in Charge. "Ask @scottbaio what happened in his garage at his house when I was a minor. Creep," Eggert's tweet said.
The accusations against Baio were levied on Twitter after he tweeted about supporting Donald Trump. "It started when I was 14. Wasn’t a one-time deal," she said.
Baio played a college student named Charles and caretaker to Eggert's young character Jamie. Baio's wife Renee tweeted back to Eggert, "Scott’s legal team has served u more than 2 cease & desist letters."
Shortly after the barrage of tweets was exchanged, Baio announced he would be doing a <a href="https://www.facebook.com/381726605193429/videos/1831250976907644/">Facebook live video</a> to address her allegations. "The reason I’m doing Facebook Live is because no one can edit me… This is the truth," he said.
Baio says in the video that this isn't the first time Eggert has accused him. In 2012, she made the same molestation claims against him when she was promoting reality shows she was featured in.
At that time, Baio decided to keep his mouth shut and did not comment on the accusations assuming she'd stop on her own. He says Eggert "just won't let them go."
In the video, Baio even tells her to go to the Los Angeles Police Department with her claims, something Eggert has never done. At the end of the clip, Baio says, "I don’t know what else to put out there."
Back in 2012, Baio did eventually respond to questions about the molestation during an interview with Yahoo saying, "She’s my best friend in the world, then all of a sudden I’m the bogeyman."
Eggert said in a 2012 interview, "I would love to work with him again. There are a lot of weird, strange rumors about things that went on between us, but we became really good friends and everything is way more innocent than it was made out to be."
Eggert also claims she lost her virginity to Baio when she was just 17, something he adamantly denies.
