Charles in Charge's Alexander Polinsky Joins Nicole Eggert in Accusing Scott Baio of Sexual Abuse

Scott Baio has been accused of sexual abuse by Charles in Charge co-stars Nicole Eggert and Alexander Polinsky.

Eggert came forward with her accusations recently and said that she was a minor when Baio allegedly abused her. She also noted that there was a power imbalance as he was the star of the show.

Now, Polinsky is ready to come forward with his allegations against Baio. He will speak out at a press conference on Wednesday, which Eggert will also attend.

Nicole appeared on an episode of The Talk last week and Alexander released a statement to back up her claims and add his own.

“Working on the set of Charles in Charge from age 11 to 15 was no picnic, it was a toxic environment,” he said. “I witnessed Scott Baio acting inappropriately towards Nicole Eggert during my first year of working on the show. I walked in on them together behind the set. Nicole was on Scott‘s lap and he did not appreciate my intrusion. He yelled at me and called me various homophobic slurs. Growing up on the show I received regular verbal attacks, mental abuse and I also suffered a physical assault at the hands of Scott Baio.”
