Nicole Eggert is challenging Scott Baio right back! The actress was spotted out and about when she was asked about Baio's threat against her during his interview with Good Morning America.
Eggert apparently took a harsher aim at Baio.
"Come Clean, Scott"
Eggert is not refuting her claims but rather urging Baio to come clean for the sake of his daughter. The actress stated to TMZ that she may be talking to the cops sometime soon and also cryptically hinted that someone else from Charles in Charge may also have an accusation against him.
The ongoing war of words between the two began when Eggert responded to a tweet from another user who questioned Baio's undying loyalty to President Donald Trump.

Following this, Eggert made several follow-up tweets where she claimed Baio repeatedly molested her during the production of Charles in Charge. The actress alleged the abuse began at the age of 14 and lasted until she was 17. The Baywatch actress visited the Megyn Kelly Today show where she elaborated that others on set were aware of Baio's behavior.
Baio appeared on Good Morning America where he vehemently denied the allegation from Eggert. Baio stated that he wanted to appear on the show to defend himself and spare his daughter the humiliation she may endure at school.
"So how any of this could've happened is absolutely impossible, and I don't know how anybody can believe what she's saying when her first allegation of having sex when we were 17 had been proved to be 100 percent false and her story keeps changing," Baio stated.
Baio has been in hot water with various celebrities in the past. The actor defended Trump numerous times during the 2016 Presidential election and also told liberal celebrities to move to Canada if they were unhappy with Trump.
Baio is one of the latest actors who has been accused of sexual misconduct. The allegations began surfacing back in September 2017 after an expose article was written about Harvey Weinstein. Following this, a plethora of men in Hollywood were outed for their past sexual crimes.
