I kind of hate to admit that I stayed up last night to watch the new reality show on VH1 - Scott Baio is 45...and Single.
I grew up watching Scott as Chachi Arcola every afternoon on Happy Days. I pulled his pictures out of my Tiger Beat and Teen Beat magazines and put them on my closet door. I practiced kissing those flat glossy lips with my girlfriends after school. Forget Joanie, I loved Chachi.
I still do, I guess. The premise of his
life show is this: At 45, Scott is still single. He has dated lots of women over the years and is wondering why he has never committed to any of them. He hires a life coach and she starts him on a path to recovery - whatever that may be, we don't know yet.
The show is kind of silly and you can already see how one of his buddies has to go. I just enjoyed watching Scott...it felt like seeing an old friend after a really long time. (I know...GEEK!) I really can't believe he is 45.
I guess that means I really am 36.
