‘Happy Days’ Star Scott Baio has had enough with California and has decided to leave for good

Scott Baio who played Chachi Arcola on the series Happy Days just announced he is leaving California for good. But when people found out why, they got very angry...


Over the couple of years, many big names in the world of film and other celebs have decided to leave California behind and search for other states to settle with their families.

One of them is actor Matthew McConaughey, who moved to his home state of Texas in 2020 because he wanted his children to be raised with the same values as he was and to be closer to his family.

Mark Wahlberg did the same when he sold his $30 million Beverly Hills mansion and moved to Ohio where he owns a Chevrolet dealership and has family.

When Joe Rogan, the famous podcast host, made a decision to leave L.A. back in 2020, he said the reason was the “insane” traffic and high cost of living in the city.


Now, yet another celebrity is saying goodbye to California. Scott Baio, best known for the role of Chachi Arcola on the television series Happy Days, took to Twitter to announce his departure from the place he’s called home for many years. However, the reason he listed divided people’s opinions, and as some supported him, others were harsh on him.

Namely, Baio wrote how he has it enough of the issue of homelessness in L.A.

“After 45 years, I’m making my way to finally ‘exit stage right’ from California. The most recent survey conducted by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority found approximately 69,000 people experiencing homelessness in L.A. County and 41,000 in the city in 2022.”


His tweet caused a stir and comments started pouring in.

“Good for you, Scott,” a Twitter user commented. “You and your family will be much happier. Besides, if CA ever changes, you can go back.”

“Wonderful sir. Hope you find a place where yall can be happy and comfortable. Have a little space left in Texas if you want it. We would love to have you here,” another added. “Congrats. If and when my son leaves we are out of here too. Been here since 1970 it is not the same beautiful state it once was,” a third commented.

But not everyone was happy with Baio’s comment about homelessness.

“Considering you’ve never done anything to help out in the situation after getting wealthy off of us, we will be glad to see you go,” a Twitter user replied in anger. Another person added their experience, “Happy Californian here, especially knowing you are leaving!!”

Some even made jokes at the actor’s expense. “With your lack of work over the last 20 + years – are you one of the homeless?” someone tweeted.

“You exited from relevancy about 30 years ago, who cares?” another person added.

“It’ll be easy to pack up your tent and shopping cart,” another user unhappy with his tweet wrote. “Cause you’ve been out of a career for 40 years too!”


That Baio is serious about moving places speaks the fact that he has his home listed at $3.85 million. The place spans 6,300 square feet and contains five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, and a home theater. It was purchased in 2010 for $1.85 million.
