More Allegations of Abuse Against Scott Baio

Another of Scott Baio's former Charles in Charge co-stars has come forward with allegations that Baio behaved inappropriately during the production of the sitcom. Alexander Polinsky alleges that Baio harassed him with homophobic slurs and bullying behavior on the set. Baio denies the allegations, as well as those of sexual abuse from co-star Nicole Eggert.

Baio re-emerged into the public eye in 2016 when he became an outspoken supporter of  presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Scott Baio denied all allegations of sexual harassment and child abuse by his “Charles In Charge” co-stars Nicole Eggert and Alexander Polinsky, during a press conference held Wednesday.

Baio was not present at the Los Angeles press conference, as he was with his family at his young daughter’s school event. Baio’s spokesman, Brian Glicklich, and civil attorney, Jennifer McGrath, spoke on the actor’s behalf.

“For reasons I don’t understand, I am the target of false claims that threaten everything that is important in my life. I am hurt and I am angry, but mostly, I am stunned that anybody can be so cruel to attack not just me, but my family,” Baio said via a statement read by his spokesman at the press conference.

Baio’s representatives questioned the credibility of Eggert and Polinsky, along with their attorney Lisa Bloom. Baio’s spokesman and attorney speculated about Eggert and Polinsky’s motives, pointing to the “gigantic media tour” the duo has created with their allegations of harassment and abuse.

“Alexander Polinsky, like Nicole Eggert, has made multiple inconsistent statements. And just like Eggert, Polinsky makes his statements in front of cameras with his lawyer Lisa Bloom, who many of you know, just defended Harvey Weinstein,” McGrath said in her opening remarks at the press conference.

Earlier today, Polinsky, Eggert and Bloom held a press conference together in LA, during which Polinsky accused Baio of exposing his genitals on set, pulling his pants down in front of hundreds of people and throwing hot tea in his face. Polinsky said he was harassed and endured repeated homophobic slurs from the time he was 11 to 15 years old on the set of “Charles in Charge.”
