Sweet Jesus, where to start.
Scott Baio has denied, unequivocally, that he molested Nicole Eggert, his Charles in Charge costar, when she was underage. The denial comes after Eggert accused the actor of molesting her from age 14 to 17 via a series of tweets.

Why would Nicole Eggert feel comfortable approaching Scott Baio for the sole purpose of losing her virginity in the first place?... Is it common behavior to work with an actor and become so close that you would rather lose your virginity to him than your boyfriend?
For many, the interview is not only troubling but raises more questions than answers. Some have even stated that they believe there was prior sexual contact between the two, and that is why she felt comfortable approaching him to “pop her cherry."
"I remember her coming over to my house and seducing me," he said, claiming that “any red-blooded" straight American man would reacted the same way. “The outcome would have been the same," he said. “She seduced me. She came into my house and started kissing me."
