Brenda Hampton’s dumbest idea, it turns out, wasn’t 7th Heaven, but her thoughts on including Stephen Collins in the show’s potential reunion. In 2014, Collins publicly confessed to inappropriate sexual contact with three underage girls (all between the ages of 11 and 14) between 1973 and 1994.
While being interviewed, or perhaps ambushed, by a TMZ reporter after getting her nails done, 7th Heaven star Catherine Hicks (the mom) was asked about her relationship with her former TV children, including Jessica Biel and Beverly Mitchell. She said she considers them family, and that they all still “get together.”
Stephen Collins once gave an interview condemning photos of a then-17-year-old Jessica Biel as "child pornography."
