Got a mess there.
If it was mine I'd be cutting out all that damage and replacing with new drywall.
All that loose paints going to be an issue if you just try and just skim coat it .

Damn, i guess no easy way out? after I change the drywall, what a good sealer? Don't feel like spending $50 dollars for redgard just to do that little piece. By the way, thanks for the help and Merry Xmas

You need something to keep the water in the mud from blistering the paper----
What primer do you have around the house?

Gardz is the best I've found for that purpose---but anything that will petrify the torn paper will do.

Depot sells Rx35 which will work. I just looked it up at my Depot and it's $87.88 for a case for Guardz. Call around some regular paint store find one that handles Zinsser products. Should only be around $20 a gallon.
