Nicole Eggert: I Lost My Virginity at Age 17 — to Charles in Charge Co-Star Scott Baio
Wow, guess Charles really was in charge.
Nicole Eggert, now 41, was recently on Nik Richie Radio and talked about her time back on Charles in Charge in the late 1980s.
Nicole played Jamie Powell, one of the Powell kids taken care of by Charles, who was played by Scott Baio. Both Nicole and Scott were major crushes for teens all over the world.
On the radio show, Nicole revealed that she and Scott, who is now 53, started hooking up during filming. "Yeah, there was some flirting, yeah there was some messing around later when I was like 16. And don't forget, he was in his 20s."
But she said they didn't have sex until later. "I was a virgin until I was 17, almost 18 years old." She didn't want to go into the virginity thing on the radio, but they pushed, since she’s dated so many famous people. She said she didn't lose her virginity to "Marky Mark" Wahlberg. He was close, though.
Nicole eventually revealed that Scott was her first time. She was 17 and started dating another guy and didn't want to be a virgin anymore. “I was embarrassed I was a virgin, so I needed someone to pop the cherry and make me a veteran.” So she basically asked Scott to do the deed. She didn't even want to go out to dinner with him, she just wanted him for the experience!
Nicole also hooked up with her Baywatch co-star Jeremy Jackson, but long after they were on the show. She was also engaged for a while to the late actor Corey Haim.
It's a pretty interesting and revealing interview; listen to it here.
Scott is about a dozen years older than Nicole, so what do you think about her asking him to pop her cherry when she was a teen? Is it creepy that he said yes?
