“Charles in Charge” star Scott Baio appeared on ”Good Morning America” on Wednesday to deny former costar Nicole Eggert’s allegations that he began sexually abusing her when she was 14.

Roughly three months after halting production in response to sexual misconduct allegations against Kevin Spacey, Netflix’s “House of Cards” has officially resumed production on its sixth and final season — and it’s adding Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear to the mix.
