Chachi Loves Chachi

In between cutting the lawn, doing some laundry and cleaning out my garage--OK, you got me, "instead of doing some laundry and cleaning out my garage"-- I caught the first three episodes of the new celebreality show Scott Baio Is 45...And Single.

It seems the Happy Days and Charles In Charge star is considering marriage to a long-time girlfriend. In an effort to make the relationship work he's hired a life coach for guidance and inspiration, and to help him figure out why he's so far been unable to commit to a single woman.

This show is no Lost.

In fact, after watching the first three episodes, I'm certain I've figured out the mystery of Baio's mid-life, existential dilemma. I know the reason he's cheated on every girlfriend he's dated, and why he regularly treats the women in his life with contempt.

[Spoiler alert!]

He's a prick.

I would expect such an answer from an enlightened new age sensitive guy like you. But us regular guys, we know the real reason: Because he can.

Hiya Jelly-Filled! I'm glad you thought it was funny too. It gave me a big laugh, but I laugh at almost anything. :)

Stanton: You may well be on to something. Baio's list of girlfriends is pretty impressive--sort of a wish list for many a guy who grew up in the 70s and 80s. His treatment of them, though....not so good.

Wha', he's a prick just because he thought the best way to ensure domestic bliss is to tie it into a TV deal? You got high standards. :p

OMG!! TOOO FUNNY. I"ve seen this show and although I had a secret crush on Chachi years ago I"m pretty sure that you are correct Film Geek. He's a prick. If there was ever any hope that I could be "Mrs Chachi" it is all dashed now. I don't got the rack for it.

hee hee hee.

I always hated Scott Baio. He gives me the creeps.

The Film Geek said...

Hey Jackie: At least his name ain't Pinky Tuskadero! Man, I loved me some Pinky, and her sister Leather.

Thanks Denny, I'll ponder that over the weekend and answer the meme.

Hey Barbie: Hell, even I think Scott Baio is hot. He's just a prick is all. :)
