Baywatch actress Donna D’Errico, now 49, says she was raped at age 22. She told Inside Edition that she rape happened while she was on vacation in Panama City Beach, FL and a man grabbed her and forced her into his car while she was searching for a restroom. She said he drove her to an isolated area and raped her.

She added that he then left her naked in a wooded area and she had to walk to a highway and wave down a truck.

She says she never told anyone about the rape because she felt ashamed and blamed herself for dressing too sexy, but has felt empowered by all the women who have come out recently to reveal their experiences with sexual assault.

“I never told anybody because I was just so ashamed of what had happened to me,” she said. “I started blaming myself for the way I was dressed. I was, like, well, I brought this on myself because I was dressed so sexy.”

D’Errico played lifeguard Donna Marco on Baywatch from 1996 to 1998.
