Scott Baio Clarifies Comments on Erin Moran's Death & Drug Use

After her death, her "Joanie Loves Chachi" co-star Scott Baio shared his condolences on Facebook.

Scott says he was ONLY asked about "Erin's troubled past due to drug & alcohol abuse" during the radio interview on the morning on April 24, during which he said, "I'm okay, a little shocked, but not completely shocked that this happened". RIP Erin. I'll always choose to remember you on our show making scenes better, getting laughs and lighting up tv screens. I feel asleep woke up about a hour later still holding her hand and she was gone, she was just gone. "Now I truly understand the meaning of 'Fake News, '" wrote Baio, referring to a term famously used by President Donald Trump, whom the actor stumped for during his presidential campaign previous year.

Former "Happy Days" child star Erin Moran, 56, likely died from complications of Stage 4 cancer, the Harrison County (Indiana) Sheriff's Department and medical examiner said Monday in a joint statement. "Makes me sick to my stomach".

Erin Morans close friends are still reeling from the news of her death - including the select few who knew about her quiet battle with Stage 4 cancer.

Moran's struggle with alcohol and substance abuse has been well documented and Kimberly admitted that drugs are a problem in the otherwise quiet community.

"I'm also trying to process this loss".

Williams said that he kept in touch with his co-star as she underwent chemotherapy and radiation for her illness.

Caitlyn Jenner opened up Monday in an Associated Press interview about her rocky road to transition and why she wrote a tell-all memoir, "The Secrets of My Life".

She told DailyMail.com: 'Saturday me and my kids loaded up in the auto we went to go to my mom's for a cookout and we saw the coroner van in her driveway and they were there. I'm a compassionate person.

"Great to see Mr. De Niro, who I love, and. you know, all the people that I know", Reynolds said. She needed Kleenex, so i went to the store and came back.

Howard and Moran played siblings Joanie and Richie Cunningham on Happy Days, and the 63-year-old actor-director has fond memories of working with her.
