That said, Scott Baio, a proud Trump supporter who played ‘Chachi’ on the show, is not thrilled and not taking part.

More about bitter Baio from Yahoo News:

Baio told anchor Maria Bartiromo a show like Happy Days with “traditional American values” shouldn’t be used to promote people like Biden and Kamala Harris. He also took aim at John Stamos, who offered to play Baio’s character “Chachi,” labeling the actor an “elite Marxist.”

“I think Stamos always wanted to be Chachi instead of paying second fiddle to a three-year-old,” Baio said, referencing Stamos’s hit show Full House which starred child actors Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

“I have been, you know, [whacked from pillar to post] for the past four years and by people who were supposed to be all-inclusive and understanding and loving,” Baio said. “And they’re all basically… they’re fascists and you’re not allowed to think outside of what they think, and I find it disgusting.”

Nicole Eggert On Scott Baio: He Penetrated Me With His Finger When I Was 14-Years-Old

Appearing on Megyn Kelly TODAY, Nicole Eggert went into more detail about her allegations that Charles in Charge co-star Scott Baio sexually assaulted her during the run of the 80s sitcom while she was 14-17 years old.

The actress, who is 11 years younger than Baio, told Kelly that the first time Baio was sexually inappropriate was in his garage where he penetrated her with his finger.

She goes on to say that Baio warned her to stay quiet about the alleged incidents as he could go to jail and the TV show would come to an end leaving hundreds, including her, out of work.

Eggert went on to star on the long-running Baywatch series.

While Baio has denied all of the allegations, he does admit he had intercourse with Eggert once she turned 18. He says that Eggert came on to him and he responded as any “red-blooded American” male would.

Watch the interview below.

Scott Baio Accused Of Sexual Molestation By 80s Sitcom “Charles In Charge” Co-Star Nicole Eggert

Nicole Eggert, who was a child star on the 80s sitcom Charles in Charge has accused her co-star, prominent Donald Trump supporter Scott Baio, of sexual molestation during the run of the show.

According to Eggert, the alleged multiple incidents occurred during the time she was 14 to 17-years-old.

Adam Carl, an actor who appeared on the TV show at the time, says he remembers Eggert crying to him about the alleged assaults. His statement could serve as contemporaneous corroboration of her accusations.

Renee Baio, Scott’s wife, attempted to defend her man on Twitter:

The actor-turned-reality-star took to Facebook to deny the accusations saying in part, “I’m here today to talk about some allegations that have been made against me that aren’t true by somebody named Nicole Eggert. The reason I’m doing Facebook Live is because nobody can edit me, nobody can change what I said. These are my words. And what I’m telling you is the truth.”

Baio continued, “I’m going to knock down all these false claims against me. My reputation is being damaged. My family is being put through this and I’m done. I’m done. So, I’m going to walk you through this methodically and hopefully succinctly and please be patient because what I’m being accused of is horrible. I’m being accused of inappropriately touching her when she was a minor, and having sex with her when she was a minor….”

Baio did admit that once Eggert turned 18, he did have consensual sexual relations with her, but it was instigated by Eggert, not him.

“Now, any normal, heterosexual, red-blooded, American guy… the outcome would have been the same, the same thing would have happened,” said Baio. “She seduced me. She came in the house and started kissing me.”

Baio, whio is 57-years-old now, would have been about 26-year-old when the alleged abuse began.

Eggert posted additional tweets in response to questions on Twitter, but later deleted them.

Here are a few (via JoeMyGod):

Scott Baio On Erin Moran’s Passing: “You Do Drugs Or Drink, You’re Gonna Die”

Scott Baio and Erin Moran

The Harrison County Coroner’s Office and Sheriff’s Department have issued a joint statement regarding the passing of former Happy Days star Erin Moran.

Her death was due to complications with stage 4 cancer.

The report included the fact that there were no illegal drugs in her system or found at the scene.

Her former co-star Scott Baio, however, wasn’t slow to expect her passing was a result of past addictions.

Variety is reporting that during an interview with “The Bernie & Sid Show,” Baio admitted he was “not completely shocked” by his former co-star’s passing.

“I’m OK, a little shocked but not completely shocked that this happened. My thing is, I feel bad because her whole life, she was troubled, could never find what made her happy and content. For me, you do drugs or drink, you’re gonna die. I’m sorry if that’s cold, but God gave you a brain, gave you the will to live and thrive and you gotta take care of yourself.”

“I knew Erin well, over the last many years I have not spoken with her. She was just an insecure human being and fell into this world of drugs and alcohol. Again, I don’t know if that’s what killed her, I’m sure it was a culmination of years and years of doing it that might have had something to do with it. She just never found her way.”

“How do you help somebody that doesn’t want to help themselves? You try a couple of times and if they don’t want the help, I gotta go, sorry.”

Baio, a fervent Trump supporter, had a kinder, gentler message on Sunday morning:

Scott Baio Defends Donald Trump: Trump “Talks Like A Guy,” So Grow Up If You’re Offended

I’m not sure if it’s good news that Donald Trump has Scott Baio, 70s/80s sitcom actor, come to his defense with this.

Talking to Fox News, “Chachi” had this to say:

“He [Donald Trump] talks like a guy. And ladies out there, this is what guys talk about when you’re not around. So if you’re offended by it, grow up. And by the way, this is what you guys talk about over white wine at your brunches. So take it easy with the phony outrage, this is the way the world works. It’s not a big thing.”

Make note that the Fox News host jumps in quickly to say “I don’t! I don’t talk like that!”

Reality TV Star Scott Baio Has No Problem Calling Hillary Clinton C-Word

During an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash last night at the Republican National Convention, 70s/80s actor Scott Baio showed no contrition about tweeting the above meme last week.

Said Baio, “It’s just a picture somebody sent and we sent it out. You make of it what you want. I didn’t have to put anything behind it. I just sent it out there, you know. You look at it any way you want.”

This is the Trump/Pence campaign.

Whatever happened to class?

Scott Baio returns to prime time TV

Scott Baio is returning to prime time TV with his new sitcom “See Dad Run” on Nick at Nite.

Baio plays an actor who decides to stay at home and take care of his kids when his long running sitcom – playing “America’s favorite dad” –  gets cancelled and his wife goes back to work.

Says Baio:   “There’s nothing new
under the sun. No new ideas,” Baio said. “This is an idea that’s not
particularly original, but it’s fun and it’s funny.”
What makes “See Dad Run”
different, Baio said, is the fact that “it’s a story about a guy who is
not an idiot like a lot of TV dads are. He’s just … playing catch up
(after playing a dad on TV for 10 years), and he’ll never really get
there because nobody every really gets there.”
This is Baio’s first run at TV since his two VH1 reality shows.
