Press conference

Both Eggert and Polinksy attended a press conference with the former’s lawyer Lisa Bloom, a famous  celebrity attorney. Both the actors elaborated the torture they allegedly went through the hand of Baio.

Alexander Polinsky, 43, tells his side of the story.

“I was sexually harassed by Scott Baio and ultimately assaulted by him between the ages of 12 and 15 years old. Getting the job on Charles in Charge when I was 11 was one of the most wonderful things that had ever happened to me, ” He adds ” It represented everything good about my life and my future. My excitement did not last long.”

“During the first year of the show, when I was 11 or 12, I observed Scott with our co-star Nicole on his lap backstage. I was so naive, I innocently hopped on his lap, expecting to hear a story about Fonzie or Happy Days or something awesome.”

Polinsky added, “Scott Baio was a hero to me. I was 11 years old. Instead of telling us a story, Scott immediately threw me off him and began angrily calling me ‘f—-t’ while Nicole laughed.”

Eggert adds her side of the story as well,

“After he (Polinsky) walked in on me and Scott being intimate on his lap, and he was thrown to the ground, this is when all the abuse began.”She feels horrible and guilty for not helping Polinsky as it started the abuse cycle.

Polinsky continues the rest of the story
Scott Baio began a pattern of abuse that was unrelenting. Mr. Baio repeatedly told me about gay sex acts that he told me I would grow up to perform. I would protest and ask him to stop saying these things, but he said it was for my own good. Scott told me of his sexual conquests with young girls and the co-stars of the show.“Scott pulled down my pants in front of over 100 people,” he added. “Another time, he laughed as he cut a hole in the canvas wall of my private dressing room on set and exposed his genitals to me. One of the most painful memories of my childhood was when Scott and I were backstage waiting to enter the set for a scene. I faked a basketball to him. He got startled and in anger, he assaulted me by throwing a burning hot cup of tea in my face.”Both the actors claim that the abuse continued throughout the run of the show.  Polinsky was subjected to “Mental and torture and retaliation”

Hours after the press conference, Baio’s rep denies this claim as well. They told reporters that “Scott denies every single claim of inappropriate behavior.”
