    Entertainment tonight or something is interviewing Scott Baio about his wife's miscarriage, and the little graphic read, "Chachi's lost baby"

    Does that seem, I dunno, wrong?

    Offensive? Maybe "stupid" is more like it.

    Certainly in poor taste, but it doesn't offend me. Might offend Scott and his wife though.

    Now, this might be equally offensive, but...

    ...the future of Scott Baio is 46 and Pregnant is in doubt.

    Yes

    They ruined the ending of the show, and the season hasn't even started.

    Spoiled endings really offend me, dead fetus's not so much.

    It's not about the celebrity though. It's about the media, DL, and its insensitivity. I couldn't care less about Baio

    But seriously, I do think it's a stupid attempt at being "clever" on their part. I'm sure two morons sat there writing it up and one said; "Dude, wouldn't it be awesome if we called him Chachi instead of Scott Baio? Brilliant!"

    I am not personally offended, but I wonder if Scott is. People probably call him Chachi all the time to be funny, or be a dick, and that is one time they should show some ****ing respect.

    That is rude and disrespectful. I'm not personally offended, though.

    Offensive, nO.

    Poor Taste, yes.


    I love hollywood gossip. But I draw the line with personal things like that. That has to be a horrible situation that family is in now...














    Now Britney Spears on the other hand...

    Catchy (cheesy) titles are supposed to reel people in, I guess. But, I'm not so sure attempting to be clever with this particular subject matter is necessary.

    I'm slightly more offended that someone actually watched Entertainment Tonight.

    I feel sorry for Scott and his wife. That's a terrible loss.

    I looked into it more. Apparently Baio and his wife were supposed to have twins. One died and the other survived. So it's not as bad as it seems. But this happened two months ago, anyway.

    Twins doesn't mean you've got a spare. It's still a horrible thing to lose a child.
