Danny Pintauro, the gay Who’s The Boss child star (a term I’m sure he hates), has found a new line of work: schilling for Tupperware.
The fictional Jonathan Bower announces to visitors of Tupperware’s website, “My name is Daniel and I am a brand new Tupperware Consultant I’m here to party with you and show you that Tupperware is sexy, hip and not just in your grandmother’s kitchen! Look out America! Here we come!”
And that’s where he invites you to join him for his next plastics soiree: “If you live in Southern California, I’d love to come to your house and have a party…If you DON’T live in Southern California, I’d love to throw you a party too… but that’s a bit trickier (care to fly me there?).”
Curiously absent from Danny — sorry, Daniel — Pintauro’s bio page? Any mention of his past life: “Hello! My name is Daniel… I know I know.. first thing your asking yourself is ‘What is a GUY doing selling Tupperware? Aren’t they Tupperware LADIES?’ The answer is ‘Why the heck not!?(Oh, and I AM a lady…and a gentleman).’ I love to cook, I love to throw parties (my friends call me Martha when I plan a party), and I LOVE to save money. I have three dogs, I live in Los Angeles, and I’m excited to come to your home and throw a party! I’ll bring the dip if you bring the wine?”
I’m not sure if that’s a sales pitch or a dating profile.
Hey, good for him. At least he’s not off robbing backs or barebacking for some meth!
I hope he’s a sucess, much better than what that Lohan mess has done with her life.
Just an idea, imagine if everyone who reads this article just bought one item from his website/catalog. For some it gives them a celebrity story to tell at dinner parties – “Hey, I bought this from that child star from that sitcom with Judith Light and Tony Danza” – for others it’s like having a piece of 80’s nostalgia. Also, it would be a great way of supporting one of our own that doesn’t require anything more than a few minutes on the computer.
Oh, and I hope to god no one flies him to another city for a tupperware party in their pants…
@CHIP1218: Since when does a piece of Tupperware equal 80’s nostalgia??? Are you nuts or something? And one would have to have a pretty pathetic life to use this as a story to tell at parties! Big fucking deal!
Tell us how much you get paid for plugging him and his new “career”?
Is food storage so important you have to host a party for it? Why not just go to the store and buy some shit.
The Tupperware brand isn’t sold in stores, but similar products are.
I’d hit that.
This just proves how child stardom can mean DOOM to most young people. Once a hit TV show gets canceled, most of the stars (both Child and Adult) find it difficult to move on to other projects.
I wish him well…At least he’s far from what happened to Gary Coleman.
I will only buy from Aunt Barbara.
Mr. Enemabag Jones
I remember seeing him on the Arsenio Hall show as a tween, and he was shocked at the amount of money he was being paid to be on “Who’s The Boss?”. Aresnio though it was funny. I thought is was astute. He said he had bought himself a new BMW, even though he wasn’t old enough to drive it yet. I bet he wishes he had that money today.
That said, I wish things had gone better for him. If anyone deserves a reality show, it’s this man.
It’s an interesting piece, but borderline mean.
I sometimes feel bad that there doesn’t seem to be that much career opportunity left for him. Saw him on some talk show maybe a decade ago, where he mentioned working at The Gap — and how of the “Where Are They Now?” child star editorials snickered about how far his career had sunk. Seemed like a nice enough guy. Judith Light ought to pull some strings to get him on a SVU episode.
@Davey Fan: Actually, it’s often sold at mall kiosks these days. Modern-day working women don’t always have time for the Tupperware-party thing. That is SO June Cleaver.
Leave him alone – he’s trying to make an honest living – not holding up a dry-cleaner or screaming for publicity by doing some shadow-box campaign for governor of California. Or trying to invent a lesbian affair to spice up his memoir. Or assault tranny hookers. I could go on.
Will he throw a Tupperware party in the nude? I’d love to show him Who’s the Boss!
Seriously, kudos to Danny for not falling into the usual Hollywood death trap of drugs, cheap films and meth induced sex.
Good for you Danny!
Dayum, he grew up to be a hawty!!!!!!!!
@JD: So he’s a Tupperware Rep. BFD! He’s working and presumably a contriubting member of society. Why write such a mean spirited article? Shame on you! Save your snark for those politicians who don’t support and/or fight against the lgbt community, those straight celebrities who are not our allies, etc. Why write bitchy comments ridiculing our own?!? What has he done to merit the same? I have a suggestion for your dating profile: Bitchy, nasty, self-loathing and untalented queen.
The Tupperware isn’t the nostalgia, buying from an 80’s sitcom star would be (if you don’t want to tell others, at least you would know where you bought it from). I have never met nor do I know anyone who’s friends with the guy, but I thought how amazing it would be if the people who read this article and remember watching him on TV bought just one item from his site. As one guy mentioned, many former child actors that didn’t stay in the business are more likely to end up in jail, drug addicted, employed as a sex worker or some combination of all 3. I just thought for a moment, for a few bucks some of us could actually be helpful and help this guy as he starts a career and perhaps help prevent him from joining the path of some of the other child stars of 80’s sitcoms. But I forget, most people who post comments on this site only care about trashing other posters, bitching and complaining about how this site sucks, or objectifying any male pictured in a post.
