    Anybody see the new show on VH-1? It features half a dozen movie-TV actors from the 80s and 90s, puts them in a house and offers them a chance to resuscitate their careers.

    Christopher Atkins is in it

    Also David Chokachi (not sure that's spelled right) from Baywatch

    Adrian Zmed from T.J. Hooker

    Eric Nies from The Real World

    Jamie Walters from 90210 (the original one)

    Billy Hufsey from Fame

    Anyway, it's pretty good. Really cool seeing all these guys again. Christopher comes off the best.

    P.S. It's called Confessions of a Teen Idol, or something like that, and it's on VH-1 Sunday night. Scott Baio, by the way, is one of the hosts.

    yes, CA seems to be the most "normal" down to earth guy of the bunch...the contrast between these guys male stripper bodies and ageing faces is interesting, i think...can't these guys afford a face lift or other plastic surgery? surely, as actors/models, the are self-absorbed enough to spend the bucks... icon_lol.gif

    Definitely have to check that out. With Christopher Atkins and David Chokachi in it... and others, it would be pretty interesting.

    Well, I think most of them look pretty good as is. Chris is still, IMO, extremely good-looking. Sure, he has some wrinkles, but he looks OK with them.

    And like you say, most of them still look good with their shirts off

    Funny story about the album . . . sometimes I think Christopher Atkins was everyone's first crush LOL

    I just read an article about him and he is fully aware of the impact he's had.

    He said he knows that 90% of his fan base are gay guys. He is appreciative of it and doesn't seem to be the least bit homophobic.

    For the record, he divorced a couple of years ago, after 18 years of marriage. He has two kids, now in college.
