Stephen Collins- I Deeply Regret What I Did

Posted: December 17, 2014 by RealMrHousewife in Celebrities, Real Mr. Celebrity, Scandal

Although actor Stephen Collins hasn’t commented at all on audio recordings that leaked of him claiming he had had inappropriate conduct with three underage girls, he has finally broken his silence. What is he saying? 

In a statement he released, Stephen says the following:

“Forty years ago, I did something terribly wrong that I deeply regret. I have been working to atone for it ever since. I’ve decided to address these issues publicly because two months ago, various news organizations published a recording made by my then-wife, Faye Grant, during a confidential marriage therapy session in January, 2012. This session was recorded without the therapist’s or my knowledge or consent.

On the recording, I described events that took place 20, 32, and 40 years ago. The publication of the recording has resulted in assumptions and innuendos about what I did that go far beyond what actually occurred. As difficult as this is, I want people to know the truth.

I did have an opportunity to do so with one of the women, 15 years later. I apologized and she was extraordinarily gracious.  But after I learned in the course of my treatment that my being direct about such matters could actually make things worse for them by opening old wounds, I have not approached the other two women, one of whom is now in her 50s and the other in her 30s.”

While we appreciate Stephen speaking out, we personally feel what he did is unforgivable and don’t feel this is something an apology can be accepted for.

    It isn’t up to you or I to forgive because we aren’t the wronged parties and we weren’t asked to forgive Mr. Collins. My feeling is if he has asked God’s forgiveness are we better than God to say we, who have no horse in the race will not forgive?
