Justin Herwick is the reported ex-husband of Nicole Eggert, former Baywatch and Charles In Charge star. Currently, Eggert has spoken out on Twitter, claiming that former co-star Scott Baio, a man she reportedly dated, started molesting her on the set of Charles In Charge when she was just 14 years old, accord to The Hollywood Reporter. Eggert also appears to have had a relationship with Baio in the past and says she lost her virginity to him at the young age of 17. However, she says that it wrong for him to “finger her” when she was just 14 years old, according to THR.
In response to Eggert’s claims, both Baio and his wife Renee clapped back online. Renee Baio tweeted that her husband’s legal team has already served Eggert with two cease-and-desist letters. As for Baio, he posted a 16-minute Facebook Live video denying the claims. He also brought up the fact that Eggert previously made claims against him in 2012. Baio also noted that Eggert praised him in a Yahoo interview that same year, saying that, “There are a lot of weird, strange rumors about things that went on between us, but we became really good friends and everything is way more innocent than it was made out to be. I would love to work with him again and I’m friends with his wife.” Baio has said that he supports those with legitimate sexual misconduct claims and he also stated that, “I don’t know what else to put out there. She’s my best friend in the world, then all of a sudden I’m the bogeyman. The problem with almost all he said/she said cases is they’re he said/she said. Now, go prove it or disprove it …the real problem with this is people with legitimate claims aren’t taken seriously, and that’s too bad.” Baio also said that when Eggert lost her virginity to him, she was at least 18 years old, according to the NY Times.
Currently, Nicole Eggert is unmarried, though she has previously been reported to have been married to a man named Justin Herwick from 2000 – 2002. Read on for more details on Herwick and Eggert’s love life below.

I don’t think that I saved his life, I just think that I was there for him.” Eggert appeared with Haim in the movies Blown Away and The Double 0 Kid.
