Stephen Collins Is Still Alive

Posted on | October 8, 2014 | 22 Comments

There was a rumor last night that actor Stephen Collins committed suicide. The rumor proved to be false, but you can understand why there were rumors. His estranged wife secretly recorded Collins confessing to having molested at least three young girls:

Collins — who is in the middle of a nasty, prolonged divorce with actress Faye Grant — revealed to her in 2012 he had molested and/or exposed himself to several underage girls years before. Collins and Grant went to a therapist where she peppered him with questions about the incidents . . .
Grant taped the therapy session. . . .
You hear Collins flatly confess to molesting an 11-year-old New York girl — a relative of his first wife — saying, “There was one moment of touching where her hand, I put her hand on my penis.” He also acknowledges exposing himself to the girl “a couple of times” . . . he says when she was 11, 12 and 13.
Grant asks, “When you exposed yourself . . . did you have an erection?” He responds, “No, I mean, no. Partial, maybe I think.”
Grant then inquires about other girls. Collins mentions an L.A. girl who lived in their neighborhood, but says he tried righting the wrong by apologizing to her years later.
And then they talk about yet another girl. . . . We’re told this girl was also from New York and was between 12 and 13 at the time.

TMZ notes that some of Collins’ roles look creepy in retrospect. He starred in “the fantastically awful 1996 Lifetime movie ‘The Babysitter’s Seduction,’ Collins sleeps with his teenage babysitter (played by a 19-year-old Keri Russell).” CBS News reports this:

[Entertainment Tonight] has obtained the declaration from Stephen Collins’ wife of 27 years, Faye Grant. . . .
“I believe that Stephen used his celebrity status to engender the trust of the families of the children he molested,” Grant’s declaration claims. “I further believe that there have been other victims, but he has thus far only confessed to those three girls.” . . .
“The two victims in New York were apparently molested over the course of several years, from the ages of 10-14 years old,” Grant claims in the document. “My understanding is that all three of these victims are now over the age of 26.” Grant says that she believes one of the victims filed a sexual assault complaint in New York. . . .
The documents also claims that the 67-year-old actor’s mental state, “Stephen’s therapist subsequently disclosed to me that Stephen has narcissistic personality disorder with sociopathic tendencies.”

Estranged wife? Narcissistic sociopath? Hmmm.

Will Stephen Collins sue me for quoting court documents?

    “I believe that Stephen used his celebrity status to engender the trust of the families of the children he molested,” Grant’s declaration claims.

    As horrific as these behaviors are, it is worth noting the similarities with many other such cases. Parents become “seduced” by coaches, teachers, or whatever who tell them their children are special. As a consequence, they let down their guard and allow these predator adults unsupervised access to their children. This happens all the time, yet parents still fall for it. Whether it’s because the parents are trying to live their lives vicariously through their children or because parents are truly trying to help their children succeed is irrelevant. When an adult shows interest in your kid for whatever reason, be very, very cautious. And never cede control of your child’s life to another.

    He made a tweet critical of Sarah Palin years ago so I believe you’re on the right track.

    He should have emigrated to France while he had the chance. He could rent the Chateau next door to Roman Polanski.

    As an aside, she secretly recorded a therapy session. Think about that. From what I read, she held onto the tape for a while before spilling the beans when it seemed it was in here best interest to do so. So much for her concern about the victims.

    Stacy Tweeted: “narcissistic personality disorder with sociopathic tendencies.” … Sound familiar?

    I see a vision of The Whitey House.

    I read that LAPD has had possession of the tapes since 2012 hence the reports that they were re-opening their investigation. Given the power of Hollywood, I wouldn’t put it past the authorities there to have tried to sweep this under the rug and only truly investigate it now but it is public.

    My wife, Mrs Z, loved that show, also Touched By An Angel… She believes in angels – I don’t – which begs the question of how we stayed together for 27 years to date!
