Stephen Collins' estranged wife is indignant he's bellyaching he can't get work because of that audiotape in which he confesses he sexually abused children ... Faye Grant says the real reason he can't get work is because he's a pedophile.

Collins' lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, filed legal docs saying, "Faye's decision to parade that recording ... has resulted in Stephen having no income other than investment income and pension income."

Now Grant's lawyer, legal pitbull Marty Singer, tells TMZ, "The tape has nothing to do with Mr. Collins' plight.  It is Mr. Collins' horrific conduct and actions that have caused him damage."

Singer calls Collins a pedophile, adding, "It is also unfortunate that Mr. Kaplan is attempting to justify his client's conduct by diverting blame onto third parties."
