I grew up watching Willie Aames play Tommy Bradford on tv's Eight is Enough. A slightly older Aames played Buddy Lembeck friend of Scott Baio's title character on Charles in Charge.
As an adult, Aames was on some reality tv shows. He has experienced financial problems and has battled drugs and alcohol. Aames is a born-again Christian. I have to say though, Aames looked and sounded great when I talked to him.
Aames talked about how much fun he had with Baio and how they sometimes just ad-libbed conversations. They had great chemistry and remain friends.
I told Aames about this site and what I do. He graciously recorded a testimonial which you can see upper right on this page.
