Semi Sordid?

Don't these pictures just take you back?


Be still my beating heart.


IMO, Chachi is still pretty hot. Even after all of these years.


You can imagine my excitement when I heard about his new reality show on VHI: Scott Baio is 45 - and Still Single. This link will take you to the show's website. Not only does it report that Scott Baio apparantly has a lengthy "roster" of "erotic ex's" that rivals Warren Beatty but it also refers to the former Tiger Beat Star as a bad-boy with a "semi-sordid" past (quoted language all lifted from website).

What?

Really?

Really-really?

Is it me, or is this a little hard to accept? I guess I'd always imagined Scott marrying a nice Italian Catholic girl - and that he would fulfill my version of a Billy Joel fantasy. He and Ralph Macchio. After a little further research tonight, I've learned that not only did he sleep with Erin Moran (Joanie) back in the day but that he's been engaged to Pamela Anderson TWICE. Wow.

If you are as curious as me - set your Tivo ahead of time. The show starts Sunday.

OMG-I was SO excited when I saw the commercial for his show the other day! My husband looked at me like "Are you serious?" I heart Scott Baio! I didn't know about his sordid past though. Oh well. He's still cute.

Pamela Anderson????? Get out! OK, now I'm going to have to watch.

Well...I wasn't much of a Scott Baio gal...more Leif Garrett, but you want to talk about a different type of sordid? Eeeewww.

Joannah said...

Yuck. He's no Charles in Charge, I guess...

I might have to check that show out just for a guilty pleasure. ;-)

I was never a SB fan, but David Cassidy? He rocked my pre-teen world.

I saw a preliminary show about it the other day in which he was sitting with Erin Moran. I lost a whole lotta respect for him, not that I had much to begin with.

But what about Joanie????? Mrs. C would be so upset.

"M" said...

You are just too funny! He sure was/is a cutie. Sean Cassidy is still my teenage heart throb.

kris said...

A must see. Thanks for the heads up.

Rhonda said...

Yeah, I heard about that show...too bad we don't get VH1 up here.

Jacquie said...

I KNOW!!!! I was reading Entertainment Weekly today and they called him a man slut! Imagine my surprise. And then there's Bret Michaels, the Poison guy who's show is starting this week, too. Apparently he's having trouble finding a good woman. Uh, whatever.

Krista said...

Dude I was so into Scott Baio back in the day. I'm gonna have to check out this show just for the sheer lunacy of it all. It'll be like a train wreck... horrible but just.can't.look.away.

Cavatica said...

I think he looks stoned in that picture. I was a Shawn Cassidy fan. Okay, I liked Scott too. I gotta say, this whole discussion is a little creepy. They're old now. My little sister, who's 16, NEVER heard of them. This means: Ladies (don't read on if you can't handle the truth) we're old!!! Noooooooooo!

isepa said...

He always seemed like a lame ass to me. I can't believe you would like this s*#^! I'll stick with Real World/Road Rules. :-)

Shandra said...

He is still pretty cute. I am shocked! Not sure what I expected.

I had a thing for Peter Criss from Kiss. I wanted to change my name to Beth, so he would be singing about ME.

Who knew Scott Baio was such a man ho?

Carolyn said...

Hahaha- I had posters of Scott Baio and Eric Estrada all over my room when I was a kid! But Scott Baio was my absolute favorite. Sort of makes me shudder a bit now.

I lived for tiger beat.... especially when Sean Cassidy was the centerfold

C.J. said...

I forgot all about him. It freaks me out that he is 45....that means I'm not 14 anymore!

Zoinks....I wonder who was taking care of Mrs. C!?! I heard the Fonz was at one point ;0)

Beth and Shayna said...

Ahh, Chachi, who did not LOVE that boy?

Shannon S said...

I was about to acknowledge that I was single too and maybe...until I read further! Ewww. And how does Pammy end up with such winners? Tommy, Scottie, & Kid Rock? Now the surfer she was with at one time...=)

tundrachica said...

Joanie was such a slut...I knew it! I can't believe he is 45...the hubby will be happy to hear that as it will make him feel a few years younger.
I'm pretty sure I had that exact same issue of Tiger Beat back in the day.

Project Ni Hao said...

Holy crap, Chachi is 45????

A sure sign that your life is in the toilet? That would be a starring role in a special on E! or in a series on VH1.

Funny how most of the heart-throbs from the 70's wound up so messed up. I was an Andy Gibb fan. 'Nuf said.

Mark & Michelle said...

I heard about this show...we don't get the channel here...

Oh I remember spending my money on TigerBeat magazines...
