Chachi is a heartless bastard...

A couple of days ago, we got the news that Erin Moran died at the age of 56.  She was well-known to people of a certain age for playing Joanie Cunningham on Happy Days and Joanie Loves Chachi.  Her love interest on both of those shows was Chachi Arcola, played by chief dickhead Scott Baio.

I just read a very sad article about Baio's comments regarding Moran's death.  Basically, Baio says Moran died due to addictions to drugs and alcohol.  News reports indicate that Moran had stage four cancer that had apparently not been publicized and that was probably why she succumbed.   She was found dead in her home in Harrison County, Indiana.  No illegal narcotics were found in Moran's residence.

At this point, the type of cancer Moran had has not been publicized.  It's true that addictions can lead to other illnesses that hasten death.  But was it really necessary for Scott Baio to say this?

Got any class, Mr. Baio?  

When I was growing up, Scott Baio was sort of a heartthrob.  I see that he's now evolved into a middle aged jerk.  

For some reason, when I think of Scott Baio, I think of this...

Or this...

I just think it was pretty classless for Scott Baio to make those comments about his former co-star's death.  He has no business assuming he knows what killed Erin Moran.  It sounds to me like he hadn't a clue, anyway.  Even if she did die due to drug use, he could have been kinder with his comments.
