Weekend Weddings–Scott Baio FINALLY Ties the Knot

So much for being 45 and single. Producers of “Scott Baio is 45… and Single” need to change the title of the reality TV series. Because now Scott Baio is 46… and married. The actor kissed his bachelor days goodbye last night when he tied the knot with longtime gal pal Renee Sloan (with whom he has an infant daughter). According to PEOPLE magazine, the former “Happy Days” star and self-proclaimed “life-long bachelor” wed Sloan during an intimate ceremony on the roof of a luxury high-rise building in Los Angeles.

According to band member Nick Carter, Richardson’s announcement “came as … Continue reading

BackStreet/’N Sync Creator Says Bye Bye Bye to Possessions

Take boy band impresario Lou Pearlman for example. He was the mastermind behind two bands I abhorred in the 90s – Backstreet Boys and ‘N Sync. Just like the New Kids on the Block before them, these bands were targeted primarily at young girls, but both managed to have many hits on the charts and many of the former … Continue reading
