Early life

Eggert was born in Glendale, California. Her mother, Gina Duncan, was a British-born talent agent, and her father, Rolf Eggert, was a German-born canning-company executive. [4] Eggert's quest for stardom started when her mother entered her in beauty contests. At age five, Eggert was Miss Universe in the petite division.

On April 21, 2015, she appeared on the television series Botched for a breast reduction. [17]

Eggert has accused her former Charles In Charge co-star Scott Baio of sexually harassing and sexually abusing her as a minor, beginning at age 14. [18] [19] [20] Baio has adamantly denied the claims.
