Whatever Happened to Danny Pintauro?

11 Oct

October 11, 2010

Remember Danny Pintauro from Who’s The Boss?  The sitcom where we were supposed to believe that Tony Danza went from a former baseball player to a nanny/housekeeper? Really, if Tony was that bad a ballplayer, how come he never played for the Mets? Seriously, how are we supposed to believe this stuff?

This, by the way, is Standard Comedy Plot # 109, next seen in the Hulk Hogan opus, Mr. Nanny.

Anyway, here’s Danny, cute little sitcom tyke. On a hit show, guy had the whole future ahead of him. And then nothing.

Ever wonder what happened to him? He didn’t seem to act much after the show went off the air. In fact, He didn’t seem to do much of anything and faded into obscurity. Even the kids from Diff’rent Strokes went on to greater fame as felons. Danny? Other than a few gay porn pics online (trust me, don’t search) he hasn’t exactly been setting the world on fire.

So what is Danny Pintauro doing now?


Yep, you guessed it. He’s selling Tupperware.

He is a Tupperware salesman.

I’d like to say “how the mighty have fallen” but that doesn’t quite fit.

According to his Facebook page, he only needs $25 more to reach his sales goal.

We wish him luck.

    At least I can now assert who is decidedly NOT the boss.

    This sent me into hysterical laughter while oddly bringing down my mood. An amazing new emotion to be sure. Wonderful post.

      My brother sent me the link to the Tupperware page. I called him up and couldn’t stop laughing- I didn’t think it was real! (But it is!)

    Could be worse. I’m relatively sure Pintauro is getting more work now than Katherine Helmond.

    I’m proud of myself though, I avoided the cheap and easy jokes about “airtight seals” and the famous tupperware “burp”

    Oh geeez……..I’m gonna burn in hell aren’t I?

      Katherine Helmond is 82, has a couple of Emmy Awards, and just guest-starred on The Glades.
      I think she has Tupper-Boy beat.

    Fantastic(ly depressing) find.

    Speaking of “Where is the cast of ‘Who’s The Boss’ Now?” have you seen Tony Danza’s new reality show where he’s teaching English here in Philly? It’s priceless.

      Thaks Grump. I haven’t seen it yet but I intend to. Tony Danza is a strange mix- he is amazingly likable on TV, but there is so much to laugh at too.

    I’m scared to ask how your brother ran across this page. Please tell me he wasn’t doing the porn search you warned us of. (kidding, of course!) There are simply too many jokes living inside this story. A good stand-up has at least 10 minutes or so of material here. Thanks for the laugh, though. Greatly appreciated!!

      Thanks Janece! This news has slowly been making the rounds. My bro heard it on Opie and Anthony and checked it out and sent it to me. Too many jokes? Ten minutes? We were laughing about this for almost half an hour, (and a lot cannot be reprinted here.) I just decided to downplay it a bit here and let it speak for itself.

    He’ll come to your house to do a party! Moving to Southern California NOW.

    Lifetime just played a marathon of every “Who’s the Boss?” episode ever. I DVRed every single one, but I fast-forwarded through the parts where Danny pretended to be straight.
