There is a popular saying that goes, “Life begins at 40.”  In the case of ‘70s and ‘80s heartthrob Scott Baio, he appears to be getting his second shot at fame and life at the ripe middle age of 45.  The actor who shot to fame as Chachi, Fonzie’s (Henry Winkler) cousin on the popular ‘70s show, Happy Days, currently stars in his own reality television show, Scott Baio is 45… and Single, which has just been renewed for its second season.

Scott Baio is 45… and Single chronicles Baio’s struggle to overcome his lifelong fear of commitment and the various methods he has employed in order to avoid it.  In the recently concluded first season, Baio was forced to confront his commitment demons with the help of life coach, Alison “Doc Ali” Arnold.  The actor also had to meet with some of his celebrity ex-girlfriends to uncover the flaws that took place during their relationships.

Over the years, Scott Baio has developed a reputation for dating some of the most desirable and high-profile female personalities in Hollywood.  Among his former flames are Blue Lagoon and Suddenly Susan beauty Brooke Shields, Baywatch babes Nicole Eggert, Erika Eleniak and Pamela Anderson, Melrose Place vixen Heather Locklear and desperate housewife Nicolette Sheridan.

When season 1 of Scott Baio is 45… and Single aired its finale on Sunday, Baio appeared to have finally kicked his commitment phobia by proposing to current girlfriend, Renee Sloan.  It was a rather timely move as Sloan responded with a surprise of her own by announcing that she is pregnant.   With the stage now set for the next phase in their lives, Scott Baio’s reality program is also ready to move into its sophomore year.  Production for the second offering commences this fall, with six half-hour episodes and three hour-long installments scheduled for the season.
