Scott Baio is firing back.
As we reported, Nicole Eggert appeared on Megyn Kelly Today on Tuesday, where she detailed her sexual misconduct claims against her Charles in Charge costar that allegedly began when she was just 14.
On Wednesday, the 57-year-old actor went on Good Morning America to slam the “false allegations,” even saying Eggert seduced HIM when she was 18 and legally an adult. Hm.
The Happy Days star went on to say that molestation would have been “absolutely impossible” on a set filled with members of the crew. Not the best argument, as we’ve seen over the past few months.
Things got especially awkward when Scott was pressed about Eggert’s allegation of misconduct taking place in his garage when she was a young teen. He responded:
“I have no idea what that means. I have no idea. So you can’t just keep making up different things.”

Baio’s legal reps have since sent a letter to Eggert accusing her of maliciously smearing his name and said if she continues to “repeat accusations against Mr. Baio that involve coercion or activity with you when you were underage, Mr. Baio will not hesitate to take legal action against you and to seek all available remedies.”
The Blast reports the rest of the warning says:
“Especially in the charged environment of today’s media, any such accusation will cause Mr. Baio to suffer tremendous and ongoing damage in his personal and professional endeavors.”
