Default Scott Baio Comments on Erin Moran's Death.

http://variety.com/2017/tv/news/erin...ys-1202393831/

Monday morning, the Harrison County Coroner’s Office and Sheriff’s Department issued a joint statement saying Moran passed due to complications with her stage 4 cancer. The statement added there were no illegal narcotics found at the scene, but Baio thinks her lifetime of drugs and alcohol abuse may have had something to do with her untimely death.

“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’m saddened by what happened. I don’t know if it was drugs that killed her, I read one report said it might have been and I hope it… I don’t know what I hope. It’s what it is. What can you do?”

“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.”

“I never did drugs. I never was interested in drugs, it never intrigued me. I had parents and a brother and sister who were straight arrows and my father, God rest his soul, said to me, ‘You do drugs, I’ll kill you.’ Aside from Erin, everybody on that show, as far as I know, I never saw drugs or alcohol. I just, there was no reason for me to do it. My parents set me right, that’s the best thing you could have.”

____________________________________________________________

I'm guessing Scott Baio was never raped by a member of his family.

Having no idea what that might do to a person, I will not judge her.

Yep, I love these people who encounter a tragedy in somebody else's life and yet can't stop talking about themselves. Totally narcissistic.

Also, he was wrong. She died of cancer. So does he go back and apologize for continually implying she died of drugs?

And where is his genuine feeling about losing a co-worker (and if I am not mistaken, lover at some point)? He never talks about Erin at all, except to say she was into drugs and lost her way. Never a second about how she made him feel or what impact she had on the world.

And as far as his comments about her "never finding her way", what was his way? Charles in Charge? I don't see him burning up the silver (or small) screen.

Sorry, this just totally puts me off this guy.

Scott Baio Responds to Criticism Over Comments on Erin Moran’s Death
by Denise Petski
April 24, 2017



Scott Baio’s comments earlier today on a WABC radio show about the death of his former "Happy Days" and "Joanie Loves Chachi" co-star Erin Moran sparked a sharp reaction on Twitter, and Baio has responded.

His comments were made before coroner and sheriff’s officials announced her death was the result of complications from Stage 4 cancer. When asked if he regretted his comments, he responded, “I said IF.

I generally like Scott Baio but in regard to his ungracious comments about the late Erin Moran both before and after her death, I definitely need to say that he needs to sit on it.

Yep, that makes it all better.

Still no expression of hurt or affection for Erin, you notice. He needs to stop by the compassion store; I think his tank is running pretty low.

He sounds like he's been hanging around Trump too much.

Well, any at all is too much, but you catch my drift.

Would you give the same advice to Scott Baio, whose comments were dripping with judgement against someone he should have felt compassion for? Or to yourself, for your comments about what Erin did in her life, or how she should feel about it?

Exactamundo. And I'll repeat what I wrote earlier: I'm guessing that Scott Baio was never raped by a member of his family. He talks about what a great family he has, that they all stayed away from drugs. By referencing his own family, he seems to understand the importance of family. And he obviously has a family he can turn to. It's very possible Erin didn't have that for herself. We don't know everything that happened in Erin's life and with her family, but I'm guessing having been raped by one of them, there was some serious psychological damage done to her from the trauma of that event that never healed. And perhaps she felt she lost that family connection that we all need (like Mackenzie Phillips). Who knows? How can any of us judge someone in those tragic circumstances? And before someone jumps on me, no, I did not see her raped. But I saw real tears in her eyes and real pain on her face when she revealed that. That was no act. I believe her.

I was going to say something on this earlier after the first few posts, but I thought I'd wait until it was more obvious.

This is the real hatred here for Scott Baio, not what he said about Erin Moran.

Nope, it's about the things he says, and repeats, that lack empathy. I don't get that he cannot understand that rape can bring serious trauma that can be with a person for life and lead them to bad places. She needed kindness in her life, not constant scorn from tabloids, and certainly not from those closest to her.
