7th Heaven Actor Stephen Collins is Under Investigation [Update]
TMZ is on the forefront of another Hollywood scandal. Stephen Collins, who played the dad on 7th Heaven got secretly taped by his estranged wife confessing to child molestation. TMZ got their hands on the audio tape and actually published it. If it is necessary to publish the audio is questionable. TMZ has protected the names of the victims mentioned. Stephen Collins and actress Faye Grant are in an ongoing divorce battle. The tape was recorded turing a therapy session.
TMZ reports that the NYPD has also the tape and have opened a criminal investigation.
Stephen Collins is best known for playing Eric Camden on the TV series 7th Heaven. The show ran from 1996 to 2007. 7th Heaven tells the story of the Camdens, a Protestant minister’s family living in the fictional town of Glen Oak, California. The central characters are the Reverend Eric Camden (Stephen Collins), his wife Annie, and their seven children. The 7th Heaven children cast included Hollywood star Jessica Biel.
Last month we reported about a 7th Heaven Reunion that included also Jessica Biel.
7th Heaven fans are already poring their heart out on Twitter about the news as America wakes up. 7th Heaven is trending now on Twitter.
So disappointed with Stephen Collins. 7th Heaven was my show and Reverend Camden was awesome!
