This is ugly.

During a radio show, Little House on the Prairie star, Melissa Gilbert dropped a bombshell when she accused director Oliver Stone of sexual harassment.

Gilbert (right) starred in the iconic Little House on the Prairie show that aired from 1974 to 1982.

But Gilbert accused the famous director of something even more sinister – setting up the opportunity to humiliate the young actress in an act of revenge.

At first, Gilbert was reluctant to name names, but finally relented, according to Deadline.

“I’m actually sitting here telling you this story, afraid to say his name, because I’m worried about backlash,” she said.  Eventually, Gilbert came clean, “Oh f*** it! It was Oliver Stone, and it was The Doors.”

Gilbert told radio host Andy Cohen that Stone “wrote this special scene that he wanted me to do for him physically in the casting room, and it was humiliating and horrid.”

She also claimed that Stone told her to get on her knees as he said, “Do me, baby.”

Gilbert said she refused and left the room in tears. She believes Stone set up the audition for the sole purpose of retaliation because she once said something about Stone “that embarrassed him publicly.” And according to Gilbert, he didn’t forget.

“He got me back and it hurt,” she said.

Gilbert said she had never really talked about the incident since, and the role eventually went to Meg Ryan.

This is the second accuser to come out against Stone. In October, Playboy Playmate Carrie Stevens said Stone assaulted her at a party 20 years ago when he grabbed her breast and “honked it like a horn.
