As we told you on Tuesday, Scott Baio was called out by his “Charles in Charge” castmate Alex Polinsky “regarding those things we talked about on the phone a few years ago.” Polinsky didn’t make any direct accusations implicating Baio in anything, but the National Enquirer reported the interaction as: “Scott Baio Blasted Amid ‘Charles In Charge’ Pedophile Scandal — Angry Co-Stars Speak Out!”
Hey @ScottBaio I need to speak with you regarding those things we talked about on the phone a few years ago. Please follow me so I can DM you.

Fellow castmate Nicole Eggert joined in as well:

Polinsky, again not naming Baio, went on to say that he suffered abuse “daily on the set” of “Charles in Charge”:
For 30 years I’ve held in the embarrassment and shame of being abused daily on the set of Charles in Charge. I had to watch other children be abused as well. It was devastating, destroyed me personally and made me an angry person for many years. I’m not embarrassed anymore. RT!

Baio responded to the National Enquirer, saying he doesn’t recall what Polinsky is referring to and that it’s probably best if both parties contact the LAPD next.
Baio’s wife, Rene, posted a screenshot of Baio’s comment to the National Enquirer to Twitter:

A fan of Baio’s responded to Rene in defense of her husband:
He is a good man. They appear to be targeting him. I believe he is innocent. Stay strong. We are all here for you.

Eggert also retweeted this user who says he has personal knowledge of Baio’s past behavior:
