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

    This bad boy seems to have calmed down since he got serious about his former pornstar girlfriend and he has his friends wondering WHY. What’s so special about HER? We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy. It’s a family affair – the girlfriend watches while the bad boy fiddles around with the guys!
