Laura Dern was a guest on Live with Kelly and Michael yesterday and she told them an embarrassing story about the first movie she did. The actress starred in the coming of age flick Foxes with Scott Baio, and her mother invited him over to the house. The teen heartthrob said yes and showed up in Saturday Night Fever like white pants suit. She then said he sat down on the couch and her dog greeted him. Only problem is, the puppy was in heat and left her mark on his suit.
To this day, it is still hard for her talk about the incident that happened 35 years ago. Then again, if it happened to any of us, we would also still be traumatized from it to this day.
What made Dern’s tale even better is how Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan’s reacted when she was done telling it. Their expressions are as classic as Laura’s story.
Chachi and Roger Phillips aka Scott Baio and Ted McGinley are reunited on See Dad Run at 8p tonight on Nick At Nite and looks like they aren’t as close as they used to be during their Happy Days together.
So what brings Ted McGinley back into David’s life? A reality show on a fake one. McGinley has one and he wants David and his family to be on it. So tune in to see how it all plays out!
Scott Baio Tweeted this really awesome photo of Happy Days creator Garry Marshall, TV stepdad Al Molinaro and writer Rich Corell on the set of See Dad Run, which is the same sound stage where they shot Happy Days together over 30 years ago. I don’t know about you; but seeing Chachi with first TV family again put a big smile on my face.
I can’t remember the last time I saw Al Molinaro, and I have to say that the 94 year old actor, who also starred on The Odd Couple and Joanie Loves Chachi, is looking fantastic. Actually they all look great and it is even better to see them all happy together in one place!
I can’t wait to see what happens Garry Marshall appears with Baio on Nick At Nite’s See Dad Run this season. That’s got be interesting for Marshall, you know, acting with this little kid he saw grow up, who is now older than he was when hired him to star on Happy Days.
BTW I remember reading once that Garry Marshall likes to name his characters after streets and every time I pass Arcola Ave in Toluca Lake (a few blocks from where Marshall lives), I think of them.
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.
