Then on Tuesday’s episode of NBC News’ Megyn Kelly Today, Eggert accused Baio of penetrating her with his finger while they were both in his car back when Eggert was 14 years old.
Baio told Robach “Absolutely nothing” happened between the two of them during those years.
Baio also said it would have been “Absolutely impossible” for any of the alleged inappropriate behavior to have happened because the two were constantly surrounded by teachers, parents, family, crew members and producers while they were on set.
As for seeing her off the set, Baio said he saw her in the studio lot.
When asked about Eggerts’ claims of inappropriate behavior in his garage, Baio replied, “I have no idea what that means. No idea. You can’t keep making up different things.”
When asked if he was concerned Eggert may take her claims to the police, Baio replied, “No. Why would I have concerns over something I didn’t do? Rather than take your case to social media w people tend to beat up people like me, why not do it through the proper channels instead of making the appearance-because you put out allegations like that and it becomes like wildfire.”
At the end of the interview, Baio talked about how the allegations are not only affecting his reputation and career but also his family, including his wife and 10-year-old daughter.
This isn’t the first time Baio has denied these allegations.
In addition to denying the accusations in his Facebook Live video, during which he called them “False claims”, he shared a letter he claims his lawyers sent to The Dr. Oz Show on Jan. 17 after the legal team heard Eggert was scheduled to appear on the show.
