In light of the controversial tweet over the Sandy Hook shooting, here’s a look at how Baio has stuck by his wife through thick and thin
Actor Scott Baio is back in the news, and it’s not for work on screen. On October 4, the actor took to Twitter to vigorously defend his wife, Renee Sloan, over an explosive conspiracy theory about the Sandy Hook elementary shooting. Baio ignited a firestorm after retweeting a theory that alleged one of the victim’s mothers was portrayed by an actress, which quickly led to backlash. Despite apologizing, the fury continued with people even targeting Sloan. That led the actor to hit back, as the battle on Twitter escalates.
The controversy is not the first time Baio has been slammed online. Back in December 2020, he made headlines for boycotting a ‘Happy Days’ reunion fundraiser for the Democratic party. His absence was widely mocked at the time, while others celebrated the news. Months before, Baio joined the long list of Trump loyalists who backed the then-President and his calls for a recount after the 2020 Presidential elections.

With Baio’s wife now involved in the latest controversy, we thought it would be a good time to revisit their relationship. Here’s a look at how the duo met, and how Baio stuck with Sloan after going through a very long list of girlfriends, and one engagement.
Scott Baio-Renee Sloan timeline
Dubbed the ‘legendary bachelor’, Baio went through a long list of girls before Sloan. From Denise Richards to Brooke Shields, and Jodie Foster to Heather Locklear, Baio’s list of girlfriends could have rivalled James Bond, but few captured his heart like Sloan. The duo first met at the Playboy Mansion in the 1990s, where he was a regular visitor. They stayed friends over the decades before they began dating in 2005.
Unlike his previous relationships, this one stuck all the way to the alter – the duo got married in a rooftop ceremony at a luxury high-rise in Los Angeles on December 8, 2007. The wedding came just a month after Sloan gave birth to the couple’s first child Bailey, who was born prematurely. Unfortunately, Sloan was pregnant with twins but lost one of the children during the 11th week of her pregnancy. Undeterred, the duo tied the knot in what would prove to be a very consequential.
