And Now, a Word from Scott Baio and Shannen Doherty...

We interrupt your regularly scheduled celebrity gossip updates to bring you words of wisdom from two actors that haven't been heard from in years:

Shannen Doherty and Scott Baio.

The former Charles in Charge star and Arrested Development guest star was promoting his new reality show - Scott Baio Is 45 ... and Single - at an LG Mobile Phones event in Hollywood on Tuesday.

And he talked to People magazine about the recent struggles of a few young celebrities in today's culture.

"You have to have a good family behind you. And you have to save your money," Baio said, hoping that Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears were listening to this profound advice.

Meanwhile, if there's anything the former child actor knows more than surviving in Hollywood, it's bedding a slew of gorgeous women. Seriously. The dude's ex-girlfriends include Pamela Anderson, Heather Locklear and Denise Richards.

Baio says he avoided the pitfalls of fame because "my family was square and didn't care who I was, and honestly, I got lucky. I worked with [Happy Days producer] Garry Marshal for 10 years and he was a great guy. The show was fantastic, and nobody did drugs. Everybody on that show saved their money and did the right thing."

Heck, in today's society, even someone has little known as Paul Sculfor takes drugs. What chance do real stars have?

And then there's Shannen Doherty. The former Beverly Hills 90210 star has a different take. As well as no earthly reason to still be in the news.

"It's totally different [today]," she said. "[The attention] is to an extreme now that I can't relate to. My heart goes out to all of them and I certainly hope that they keep their heads up and most importantly they keep their self-respect."

We'd be satisfied at this point if they just kept their legs shut when getting out of a car.
