Did you ever wonder what happened to Ron Palillo, who played the smart student Arnold Horshack on Welcome Back, Kotter? Ironically, Ron is now a TEACHER at a charter school in West Palm Beach, Florida. After moving back to New York in the 90’s where he lectured and did off Broadway plays, Ron, now 60, was offered a job teaching 9th grade acting at the G-Star School of the Arts in Florida. He says it’s exactly the kind of progressive high school he would love to have gone to himself. The former sweathog is a big hit with the students.

    He’s doing something really worthwhile, gratifying, poor paying, but wonderful.

    RON WAS THE BEST OF THE BEST. HE WAS VERY CONSIDERATE TO TEACH OTHERS HOW TO GET INTO ACTING THE WAY HE DID. HE WAS A BRILLANT GUY WITH MANY TALENTS TO SHARE. HOWEVER THERE IS ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF STRESS IN A TEACHING JOB ESPECIALLY IN HIGHSCHOOL.

    I HOPE THIS WAS NOT THE CAUSE OF RON’S HEART ATTACK THE STRESS OF TEACHING. ALONG WITH LIVING IN A VERY HOT HUMID CLIMATE LIKE FLORIDA IS. REST IN PEACE, RON

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?
    |

    BLIND_ITEM_NEW_#CUT

    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
