Scott Baio is 45... and Single

Scott Baio, of “Charles in Charge” and “Happy Days” fame, is launching a new show with VH1 called “Scott Baio is 45… and Single.” On the show, Baio hires a life coach to help him discover why he has been unlucky in love. He even goes back to former girlfriends to find out what’s wrong with him.

I’d have married him. When I was about 12, I had the biggest crush on him. Scott Baio and O.J. Simpson… (Now we know where MY problems lie…) I didn’t realize that men had the same insecurities as women about being single when seemingly everyone else is married. In the VH1 description of the show, they say that Baio is “staring down the barrel of middle age” and he’s in a “mid-life crisis of mythic proportions, wondering why he's still single, alone and still unable to settle down…”

But at this stage of the game, I have to ask, WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL? So you’re 45 and single… You are CHACHI for Pete’s sake! You have dated Pamela Anderson and Heather Locklear! But Baio says it’s time for him to decide if he wants to be a lifelong bachelor after all or if he wants to bite the bullet and marry his current girlfriend. I bet his girlfriend feels fabulous about the fact hat it took an eight-week series on VH1 for him to figure this out. I, for one, cannot wait to find out what he discovers.

Scott Baio is obviously a media hound pushing a reality show, if his girlfriend had any balls she would dump him and find a man who doesnt have to turn their relationship into a money making fiasco. I hate it when washed up old celebrities try to rekindle a lost fame the will never have again. As far as relationships go, I dont know why some people have a harder time finding love, some find it everywhere, some nver do, some grow out of love, some live lovelessly with someone (is that a word?) But great friends last forever.
