Hollywood Days - Scott Baio Again

Pin It Now!
If you are new to my blog, on Wednesdays I post about my experience in Hollywood as a former child/teen actress. If you want to start at the beginning of these posts go here.

This post is a rerun. However, there is a new bonus photo at the end of the post. And Scott Baio is turning 50 (if you had a crush on him that means you're old too). He and his wife (his real wife Renee, not me his 1985 wife) are hosting a big party that you are invited to. For real. It is a fundraiser for their Baily Baio Angel Foundation on September 26th in L.A. Please go on my behalf and present him with my letter. Actually, Renee has already seen this letter and has told me she feels quite threatened :)

Before I almost married Kirk Cameron I almost married Scott Baio. I think I wrote this in 1985. I was 10 years old.

But once again, by the time I actually met the guy I was over him. Story of my TeenBeat life. I first met Scott shortly after I landed the role in Lassie. We had many of the same producers and crew (from "Charles in Charge") and both shows were done at Universal Studios. Scott also directed two episodes of Lassie. At that time he was dating Pamela Anderson. I remeber her hanging out on the Lassie set one day.
Somewhere I have a picture with Scott. If I ever find it, I will sell it to you.

UPDATE:
I found it! Please mail me one million dollars. Scott doesn't look super thrilled to be posing for this pic with me, but I know he was just dying on the inside and dreaming about our future life together complete with a "manion and butler." But I was only 15 and he was 30 so it just wasn't the right time. Oh well. If you watched "Scott Baio is 45 . . . and Single" like I did, you know he met his match in Renee.

Hahaha! Well, at least you have that picture! I was going to marry him, too. It was love at first sight when I watched him on Charles in Charge. I also couldn't decide on whether I liked or hated Nicole Eggert. I mean, she got to touch him and talk to him, and she was blonde and cute where I was stick-like and brunette with puberty miles away.

I love the picture. It was nice of him to take it with you. Him and his chest. And I love your outfit. Totally cute.

Alright, I never understood the draw for Scott Baio...I always thought he was sorta weird looking.
I know, I'm rude.

SurferWife said...

Classic! Soooo funny.

And Scott Baio looks exactly like my older brother.

Thanks a lot Mimi. So, you think my brother is sorta weird looking.

Just great.

He is though. You're right. My brother, I mean.

"Miss" Anita said...

LOL!! At least you have "proof" that he actually put his arm around you. :)

Alisha,
He waited too long to tie the know. He missed out on us :)
Mimi,
Not rude, you just had bad taste that's all.
SurferWife,
I guess you didn't want to marry Scott if your brother looked like him
Miss Anita,
How do you know that is not one of those cardboard cutout things?
