'7th Heaven' Dad, Stephen Collins, Confesses on Tape to Molesting Multiple Children

Stephen Collins, who played the Dad on the long-running series 7th Heaven, is being investigated by the NYPD after his wife released a tape to authorities in which Collins admitted — in therapy sessions — that he molested underage girls.

So far, the recordings of the therapy sessions — which were apparently legal but done without Collins’ knowledge — reveal he molested three girls, ages 11 to 13 at the time, one of whom was a relative of his first wife. In the recordings — obtained by TMZ — his wife, with whom he is currently divorcing in a nasty dispute — questions Collins about the molestations during the therapy session. Collins revelations clearly shock and sicken her (as they should).

“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. It’s incredible … Collins has trouble keeping the girls straight, but then he gets clear and confirms the incident. We’re told this girl was also from New York and was between 12 and 13 at the time.

Obviously, this situation is f**ked up beyond measure, and one just hopes that no more allegations from co-workers on 7th Heaven or Revolution — where Collins worked with multiple young girls — come to light.

It’s all very sickening, and hopefully, justice will be served quickly and harshly, because fuck that guy.
