Actor Alexander Polinsky filed a police report along with sitcom-sister Nicole Eggert earlier this week, alleging he had witnessed inappropriate sexual behavior toward her by “Charles in Charge” actor Scott Baio and had himself suffered verbal and physical abuse from the sitcom star.

Polinsky’s statement was read aloud Wednesday on “The Talk” by friend and panelist Sara Gilbert during Eggert’s appearance on that show — one in a series of TV appearances by the actress since Jan. 27, when she cryptically tweeted that Baio had mistreated her in his garage when she was a minor. 

“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,” Polinsky alleged in his statement.

In the comedy, which earned its title from the classic “West Side Story” tune, the “Trainwreck” and “Snatched” star plays an insecure woman who gains “all the confidence in the world” when she falls off her bike at SoulCycle and begins seeing herself as a supermodel.

Kate Upton has revealed what she experienced during her time modeling for Guess, accusing co-founder Paul Marciano of inappropriate behavior. (Feb. 8, 2018)

A week after her tweet accusing Guess co-founder Paul Marciano of inappropriate behavior, Kate Upton has revealed what she says she experienced during her time modeling for the company.

In an interview with Time magazine, Upton spoke about what allegedly transpired with Marciano on a photo shoot for a Guess Lingerie campaign in 2010, when she was 18 years old.

“As soon as I walked in with photographer Yu Tsai, Paul came straight up to me, forcibly grabbed my breasts and started feeling them — playing with them actually,” Upton said. “After I pushed him away, he said, ‘I’m making sure they’re real.’”

Composing the way I do is a very labor-intensive thing, because I don’t have synthesizers and computers and so on. I’m doing it all by hand – which is a medieval practice, to say the least.

Academy Award contenders, along with more stars, descended on Wolfgang Puck’s Cut restaurant in Beverly Hills for Nominees Night on Monday. The annual Hollywood Reporter event celebrates the actors, directors and behind-the-scenes professionals recognized this year for their outstanding talent.

In James Corden’s world, Christian Grey’s Red Room of Pain is in fact a room full of model trains.

“The Late Late Show” host flipped the script and reimagined the fictional character’s sex cave on Tuesday — thanks to a little help from “Fifty Shades Freed” star Jamie Dornan.

Dornan, who plays sexually dominant billionaire Christian Grey in the R-rated film franchise, followed Corden into said room for a little suggestive role playing. Willingly, Dornan entered and explored.

It’s been more than two years since the first season of “Marvel’s Jessica Jones” debuted on Netflix, and though fans got a dose of the titular character in last year’s “Marvel’s The Defenders,” a dose just doesn’t cut it. 

All the better, then, that Netflix released the Season 2 trailer for “Jessica Jones” on Tuesday, revealing what the private eye (played by Krysten Ritter) and reluctant superhero has been up to in her downtime.

Drinking, it turns out. And brooding. And trying to figure out what, exactly, made her into what she is today. 

Eggert appeared on various TV shows and alleged Baio had sex with her when she was a minor.

Actress Nicole Eggert, who recently accused Scott Baio of having sex with her before she was 18, met Tuesday with a Los Angeles Police Department detective regarding sexual misconduct allegations against the actor who played her nanny on the 1980s sitcom “Charles in Charge.”

Police are investigating Eggert’s allegations, an LAPD spokesman told The Times on Wednesday.

“Ask @scottbaio what happened in his garage at his house when I was a minor. Creep,” Eggert tweeted Jan. 27. She later appeared on various TV shows and alleged he had had sex with her when she was a minor. 


Stephen Colbert pulled no punches Tuesday night, responding to stories out of Washington alleging that the president’s lawyers are urging him not to meet with Robert Mueller.

The “Late Show” host then quoted the New York Times, saying, “the president, who has a history of making false statements and contradicting himself, could be charged with lying to investigators.” 

“It is a crack legal analysis from the law office of No ... and Sherlock,” he quipped.

Country music star Vince Gill chimed into the #MeToo movement Tuesday night by showcasing a personal song about sexual abuse.

The 21-time Grammy winner wrote “Forever Changed” “years ago,” but the current climate surrounding sexual assault inspired him to share it at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville during this week’s Country Radio Seminar.

“We’re living in a time right now when finally people are having the courage to speak out about being abused,” Gill said, sharing his own experience with sexual assault in the seventh grade.
