Scott Baio and Erin Moran may have played sweethearts on the “Happy Days” spinoff “Joanie Loves Chachi,” but apparently there’s no love lost between the two actors these days.
While promoting his new Nick at Nite show “See Dad Run,” Baio said he has no plans to invite Moran, his financially strapped former co-star, to guest on the show, reports the New York Post.
Asked about Moran, who was evicted from her Hollywood home and is currently living in an Indiana trailer park, Baio said, “I feel bad, but sometimes you make your bed and you have to sleep in it. That is unfortunate. I have extended myself a couple of times and at a certain point you have to say, ‘You know what? I have got my own life to live. I am not going to worry about this.’”
Moran was recently part of a successful lawsuit that included “Happy Days” stars Donnie Most, Anson Williams and Marion Ross, along with Tom Bosley’s estate. Each of the stars were awarded $65,000 in royalties based on the use of their images in merchandising. Baio chose not to participate in that action. “I don’t like lawyers very much,” he told the Post. “That show was very good to me. Paramount was very good to me.”
Baio hinted that the tone of “See Dad Run, which bows Oct. 6, will be similar to that of his old sitcom “Charles in Charge.”
Update: Erin Moran was found dead at age 56 on April 22, 2017.
