7th Heaven Star Stephen Collins Admits To Sexually Abusing Minors

7th Heaven Star Stephen Collins Admits To Sexually Abusing Minors

Shocking evidence came to light today when it was revealed that Stephen Collins, best known for his role as pastor Eric Camden on the family drama 7th Heaven, admitted to molesting three girls ranging in age from 10 to 13. The admission was secretly taped during a therapy session with Collins’ estranged wife, the actress Faye Grant. Audio from the full tape was posted on TMZ earlier this morning and the New York City Police Department has begun a criminal investigation of the matter.

Collins and Grant are currently locked in a prolonged and contentious divorce. Faye secretly taped the therapy session with Collins and a therapist on the advice of a lawyer after Collins had confessed the crimes to her privately. On the recordings, Collins admits to exposing himself and inappropriately touching a young acquaintance over a number of years, starting when the girl was 10. He goes on to admit to indiscretions involving himself and two other girls, one of which happened in the ’90s.

Collins’ acting career stretches back to the 1970s, however his biggest role was as the father figure on the long-running television series 7th Heaven, which taught moral lessons through the travails of the fictional Camden family. He and Grant married in 1985 and have a daughter Kate. They announced their divorce in 2012, one can assume near the time the recordings were made. The incidents are said to have occurred in New York and the NYPD Special Victims Unit have said that one of the victims is a relative of Collins first wife Marjorie Weinman. At this time no arrests have been made.

Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo and her 5-year-old daughter Stella cover the November 2014 issue of Architectural Digest to give readers a glimpse inside their 16,000 square-foot home, located in Los Feliz.

Joined by husband Chris Ivery, the actress also shares several photos of their California home, including the nursery of their newborn daughter Sienna May.

Although home was originally built in the 1930s, when Pompeo, 44, and her husband Chris Ivery purchased the property in 2009 it required updates.

“Everything has been done before, so the question becomes, ‘How do you take something classic and make it fresh for a new generation?’ ” she says.

Sienna’s nursery was brightened with colorful headdresses from Nickey Kehoe, which complemented the fuchsia crib. The cozy room also boasts a child-sized chair from Pierre Jeanneret and a carpet from the Rug Company.

The actress went on to reveal her elder daughter’s colorful sleep space.

Showcasing mix-and-match patterns, Stella’s room features bean bags, an ottoman and matching bedding all from Missoni Home. Other features include oversized pillows with fabric from Stark, a few plush teddys, and a chevron-print lantern hanging from the ceiling.

“When something is so respected, you can turn it into something else, so that you are looking at it anew,” the mom-of-two says. “Reinvention is invention.”

In a Thursday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Pompeo opened up about her newborn daughter.

“She was born two months ago,” she revealed.

The actress went on to talk about welcoming her second daughter via gestational carrier.

“This is an incredible thing to do with your life, to give the gift of carrying someone’s child, so I am forever grateful and feel very blessed and grateful to her—she who will remain anonymous,” Pompeo said. “I was there with her when they inseminated her and we held hands. I looked into the microscope and I saw the embryo, I saw the baby, and they put it in a thingy and they inseminated her. And then we held hands and we prayed, we talked to God, and if she was meant to be. He said he was going to try to help us out and now we have a gorgeous baby girl.”

Kate Walsh is starting off her week with a serious sense of humor. The actress shared a bold throwback photo of herself sporting a truly bad haircut. Seriously, she admits it too.

“An unfortunate hair choice in the late 90’s,” she captioned the above photo on Twitter, revealing a brassy blonde bob style with a center part and a whole lot of side volume that couldn’t be more opposite than the rich auburn color the actress is sporting today.

Aside from the unfortunate hair, her makeup choice was definitely a very ’90s move — purple liner and shadow teamed with frosty pink lips is makeup straight out of an early ’90s music video. And we have a feeling this will be a look that will stay in the past.

What do you think of the photo? Are you inspired to share your own unfortunate hair pic? Share your thoughts below.
