Last week Mariah Carey Tweeted a picture of herself taking a bubble bath and it looks like she has started a trend. Yesterday Scott Baio Tweeted a picture of himself in the tub and said, “Is anyone casting for a new Alfalfa? @NickelodeonTV”. I guess he can star in that show along with his other Nick-at-Nite show See Dad Run. I would watch an adult version of Our Gang!
Now back to clean celebrities, I wonder which celeb will be the next one to Tweet a picture of themselves taking a bubble bath? Let’s hope it is someone we want to see doing it like these two!
Two guys, who went over to Kenya and worked at an orphanage there, taught the kids the theme song to Charles in Charge. Out of all the opening numbers from television shows, I feel bad that the orphans were taught this one. Not because it is bad, but you can’t get it out of your freaking head. They are probably still singing it as I type this.
BTW here is what Josie Davis, who played Sarah Powell on the show, Tweeted about the video “Kenyan Orphanage taught “Charles in Charge” what the hell??” I have to say I totally agree with her!
Scott Baio was on Watch What Happens Live yesterday and Andy Cohen played Celebrity Crotch Shots with Jamie-Lynn Sigler and him. Let’s just say the See Dad Run star won by a landslide. In other words we all know he was very familiar with a lot of celebrity crotches back in the day and now we know he knows them better than anyone else. In fact he did even better than I did. Largely because I had no idea that was his crotch in the picture. Who knew his little Chachi was a Charles in Charge??? Yeah I have no idea what that meant either.
Back in the ’80s Scott Baio starred in Charles in Charge and tonight 8p on Nick at Nite he really needs his former character to help him on the fun family sitcom See Dad Run!
Baio plays David Hobbs, an actor who just ended his run as the perfect dad on a family sitcom, and now he has decided to be a stay at home with his three real kids while his wife (Alanna Ubach) goes back to work on a soap opera. By the end of his first day at home with his teenage daughter Emily (Ryan Newman), prepubescent son Joe (Jackson Brundage) and 5 year old Janie (Bailey Michelle Brown), he will learn being a real dad is not as easy as being one a television show. Even though it won’t be easy, he is in it for the long run. That is unless his family recasts him, which they won’t.
See Dad Run is the type of show that everyone in the family can enjoy together because they will experience the wrongs that every family has experienced. Like tonight when David loses Janie at a Mommy and Me class and he has to find her before his wife gets home. His assistant Kevin (Ramy Youssef) will come up with a very Hollywood way to hide the fact that his boss lost his youngest kid. You will have to see it to believe it and to laugh out loud over it!
See Dad Run is Nick at Nite’s first attempt at an original sitcom and I am sure that it will be so much of a success that they will be adding more original ones to their lineup!
And the best part of the show is having Scott Baio back on a weekly scripted television show again because it has been way too long since he starred in his last one.
Willie Aames stopped by the taping of Scott Baio’s new Nick At Nite show See Dad Run and the two of them look as close as they did when they played best friends in the movie Zapped! and on the classic sitcom Charles in Charge. Can you believe that campy teen movie came out 30 years ago because the 51 year old Baio and the 52 year old Aames look as good as they did when they started playing Charles and Buddy back in 1984.
Seeing the two of them together like that has totally made my week. So much so I am going to dust off my copy Zapped! and watch it again. But until I do, I will just keep singing the theme song to Charles in Charles over and over again like a giddy teenage girl watching the show just to see them.
BTW it took me a minute to realize that it was Eight is Enough’s Tommy sitting next to Happy Day’s Chachi because he looks really great now. I really hope that Baio can create a role for him on See Dad Run because I know I for one would love to see the two of them working together again. Tell me I am not alone.
Scott Baio is a former-Playboy who dated many many women like Erin Moran, Pamela Andeson and Julie McCullough to name a few. Well now he is happily married to Renee Sloan and he has a 4 year old daughter named Bailey. Even though she hasn’t started school yet, that hasn’t stopped her from dating and the Happy Days star is having a hard time dealing with it. He Tweeted the awwwwdorable picture and said, “God sure has a way with karma. My daughter (4) on a 2nd DATE with her Beau, Brandon.#justshootme” If he thinks it is bad now, wait until she is a teen. Now he knows what all those fathers of the women he used to date went through when he showed up on their doorstep to pick up their little girls.
Seriously how sweet is that picture of Bailey and her boyfriend Brandon on their date? Young love is so precious.
Scott Baio is coming back to TV in October for Nickelodeon’s first scripted show Daddy’s Back and it looks like the daddy is getting a makeover by his beautiful daughter Bailey. By looking how Chachi Arcola came out, I think the little four year old has a career in the makeup industry if she chooses.
BTW I wonder if he will be writing this scenario into his show about an actor father who stays home to raise his raise his kids while his soap opera wife returns to work? I can’t wait to see the show that got a twenty episode pick up when it debuts later this year.
I thought this picture of Scott Baio with his daughter Bailey watching the Oscars together was so awwwwdorable I just had to share it with you. Seriously doesn’t his beautiful 4 year old daughter look just like him? Especially since they are napping in the same position.
When Scott Baio was a younger ladies’ man he could get the girls to do whatever he wanted. Now that he is a father of a nearly four year old daughter, there is only one lady in his life and she gets him to do whatever she wants! The former-Playboy Tweeted the above picture said, “THIS is what happens….. #dadwithdaughter” Way to go Bailey to get you father to put on a Tiara and earrings because that is something no one ever thought they would see happen!
BTW I really hope he writes this into his new pilot Daddy’s Home for Nickelodeon!!!
If someone were to tell you that Scott Baio is a stay-at-home dad now, you would think that is something that could only happen in the land of make believe on television. Well you are right because that is the premise for his pilot that he is working on for Nick at Nite. According to Nickelodeon the show will be called Daddy’s Home. The potential sitcom (like this won’t get picked up) is about David Hobbs (Baio) America’s Favorite TV Dad for 10 years, who finds himself suddenly at home raising his kids while his soap opera wife gets back into the biz!
Knowing how good Scott was on Charles In Charge as a Manny, I can’t wait to see how the now-real life dad is at playing a stay-at-home father! Seriously who isn’t excited for this show that Nickelodeon better pick up! After all it is their first attempt at a scripted sitcom and we all know how that worked out for their sister station TV Land with Hot In Cleveland. Maybe Chachi can have a Happy Days/Arrested Development reunion with his TV uncle Henry Winkler on the show playing his dad. You know since Winkler is the male Betty White!!!
There is no word on who will be playing his wife, but I am rooting for Nadia Bjorn since Days of our Lives mistakenly let her go. Wouldn’t she be great as his soap star wife?
In honor of this news, here are all of the versions of the Charles In Charge theme song throughout the show’s run! C’mon you have to admit it was one of the best of theme songs ever!!!
