Scott Baio Stars With Other Has-Beens on "Confessions of a Teen Idol"

Posted by Fara Kearnes on December 29, 2008 5:14 PM |

baioHave you ever wondered what happened to Scott Baio from "Happy Days" and "Charles in Charge," Christopher Atkins from "The Blue Lagoon," or Jason Hervey who played Kevin’s older brother Wayne on "The Wonder Years"?

Well the aging idols are back on a new VH1 reality show, "Confessions of a Teen Idol," which debuts January 2. While Chachi has stuck around Hollywood, the others have gone on to lead less glamorous lives. But they're willing to take a shot at celebrity again by making their "confessions."

"It's not a makeover show or anything cornball like that, it's just these guys dealing with their past and how fame messed things up for them," Baio told the New York Daily News.

"It also raises the question of if they want to be famous again and how to deal with it now. Do these guys really want to go through all of that again?"

As part of the eight week episodes, the former teen idols attend weekly therapy sessions as well as endure meetings with directors, producers and other folks who Baio calls the entertainment industry's "gate keepers."

"They go to these meetings but then get to see how these people react to them," said Baio, 45. "They also get to see how a focus group of women react to photos of them when they were famous and now. It's pretty hard-core stuff, and it's not a cruel thing but a real thing. It's very tough to be objective about yourself so this was a chance for them to hear what people really think about them."

"Confessions" will also feature Adrian Zmed ("TJ Hooker"), Jeremy Jackson and David Chokachi ("Baywatch"), Jamie Walters ("Beverly Hills, 90210"), Bill Hufsey ("Fame") and Eric Nies ("The Real World," "MTV's The Grind").

If you were ever in love with anyone of these guys, or a couple of them, this will an interesting celebrity reality show to watch.
