Who is Renee Sloan? All About Scott Baio’s Wife

Renee Sloan has been involved in the world of show business. Today, she’s better known as the wife of Scott Baio. Sloan, who also goes by Renee Baio in her life, and Baio have one child together named Bailey. She gave birth to her eldest daughter, Kalyn, in 1989.

Sloan has been an actress and stuntwoman in her career. Among the shows she did stunts on include Baywatch, Silk Stalkings, Renegade, and High Tide. Scott Baio’s wife was born in Tennessee and now lives along Florida’s West Coast.

The couple exchanged wedding vows in 2007 after dating for a few years. The couple moved out of California in 2023. Scott Baio, in an interview with Fox News Channel‘s Jesse Watters in May 2023, said the state’s homelessness problem was among the factors leading them to leave.

Scott Baio and Wife Renee Sloan Move to Florida

Renee, through an interview with the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, confirmed that they bought a home in Bradenton, Florida. “I chose Manatee County for various reasons,” Sloan said. “It’s close to Anna Maria Island, Siesta Key, and I love the small-town feel and values of Manatee County and I support mom-and-pop businesses and would like to keep them thriving.”

For her part, Sloan, Scott Baio’s wife, dealt with serious health matters in her life. In a Newsweek article from 2018, Sloan responded to a fan’s inquiry about her health on X, formerly known as Twitter. She replied, “Besides having 2 meningioma brain tumors, in Oct 2017 I also learned I have Microvascular Brain Disease.”

Renee Sloan Emphasized Health Issues in Tweet

Back in 2015, Scott Baio went on Facebook to inform his followers that his wife Sloan had a brain tumor. In 2021, in the middle of a Twitter back-and-forth between the Baios and musician Richard Marx, Sloan shared her health situation at the time.

“I hope Mr. @richardmarx is happy with the amount of vile targeted hate he’s sending to me,” Sloan wrote on Twitter. “I live with 3 brain tumors, chronic fatigue syndrome, vertigo, & seizures. (Along with chronic pain every day of my life). I hope you’ve achieved exactly what you set out to do & are happy!” The back-and-forth happened about a comment Sloan made in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook school shooting.

Scott Baio continues to help his wife care for her health as they settle into a Florida lifestyle.

At one time, Sloan reportedly owned three businesses: Whipped Couture, Bel-Air Bling, and Sloan’s Stones. She may still own them at this time, too.

Renee Sloan loves her family. She also is quite spiritual as Sloan does believe in God. She’s open about leaning up on her faith to get through life’s struggles.

She does not seem to be involved with show business at this time. The same goes for her health right now, too. There’s no word as to whether or not she would entertain an offer to go back in front of the camera.

Scott Baio also is pretty focused on his wife and family. He remains in the spotlight for sharing his comments about social issues.
