No confusion intended. When I wrote about the rape in this thread, I had already posted the link to the video in the other thread (http://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards/...=359198&page=2 ), The other thread was more widely read, so I assumed everyone was following that initial thread and knew what I was talking about here. As far as the credibility of Erin's claims (claims out of HER mouth, no one else's), I explained already in this thread my position:

Regarding the venue she chose to make that revelation (Howard Stern Show), this is what I wrote:

None of us can understand the mental impact of growing up a celebrity, then having that yanked away from you. And the abuse she apparently experienced WHILE at the height of her fame. Rape by a family member, OMG! In her world she needed her family more than anything to navigate her fame, and at least this one member of her family failed her.

As for her choosing to do Stern's show, she may have been at a point where there was no one she could trust anyway, and also needing some kind of public exposure (no matter how negative) in hopes of jump-starting her career. And Stern exploited her weakness and desperation, just as he did with Dana Plato. Dana Plato also went on the Stern show and was abused horribly by people calling in, which some people believe may have been set up by Stern's staff. Even if they were not plants, Stern's people did nothing to filter out those callers and Dana ended up in tears and the very next day she was dead. (That tragic show is also on Youtube.) Perhaps Howard Stern has some remorse over these decisions, but if so I've never heard about it.

Zoneboy already reposted the link here, but I'll do it once more so all my comments and the video are together in this post. Her rape confession starts at 6:00:
