Stephen Collins felt like it was okay to expose himself to 3 underage girls ... because the same thing happened to him even before he was a teenager.

Collins told Katie Couric a woman repeatedly exposed herself to him when he was between the ages of 10 and 15. He said the experience distorted his perception because ... "I never felt like I was molested."

In the interview, airing on 20/20 ... Collins does not say who the woman was -- nor does he say if he was forced to touch her.  

It's the first time he is talking on camera about molesting and/or exposing himself to the girls ... decades ago.

'Bad Girls Club' Wannabe

Destroy the Boot

Go to Jail

EXCLUSIVE

Bad Girls Club Driving Boot Car
The chick who left the "Bad Girls Club" audition with a Denver Boot attached to the car could end up in jail ... TMZ has learned.

It appears Chicquita Washington -- the registered owner of the car -- high-tailed it out of a Houston, TX parking lot with the boot on the back tire, then roared away, dislodging it and breaking it off.

Parking officials tell TMZ ... if she just drove off with the boot there'd be no crime, but she was gunning it toward a parking enforcement officer who booted the car, and we've learned the guy filed a police report, claiming she clipped him.

If cops and prosecutors buy his story, Chicquita could be charged with criminal assault.

Chicquita is bananas.

Ex-49er Ray McDonald

Out of Work & Under Investigation ...

No Problem

Exclusive Video

If Ray McDonald is pissed off about getting cut from the San Francisco 49ers -- he did a bang up job of hiding it outside his attorney's office.

The defensive lineman let out a massive yawn as he strolled to his car after meeting his lawyer in San Jose Friday -- 2 days after he was named a suspect in an alleged rape investigation ... and subsequently 86'd by the Niners.

Ray's pretty chill -- especially for a guy facing his second criminal investigation in 6 months, and suddenly out of work.

Watch ... Ray's got a friend with him who says new information will be "coming out soon." Unclear if he's talking about Ray's future in the NFL ... or the alleged rape case.

Heidi Klum

My Boobs Are

Too Hot for Las Vegas

EXCLUSIVE

Heidi Klum Sharper Image Ads
Much like Sony did with North Korea, Sharper Image has caved in its battle with the City of Las Vegas ... and in this scenario, Heidi Klum's boobs are "The Interview."

Sharper Image's new ad campaign features a scantily clad Klum alongside suggestive copy designed to get you to buy the gadgets Sharper Image sells that you never knew you needed.

But Klum's cleavage did not meet Clark County code and the ads were barred from being displayed at McCarran Airport. The crux of the problem ... "the showing of the female breast with less than a fully opaque covering or any portion thereof below the nipple" -- aka underboob.

So Sharper Image submitted toned downed pics, which were approved, and will soon be displayed for all to see.

Who knew Las Vegas was run by prudes?
