How can I prepare a wall for paint that has the wall paper stripped, yet some of the drywall face has also come off?

I am stripping the paper in a bathroom, but find that in doing so some of the top of the actual drywall is coming up also. Is there anyway to salvage the walls and prepare them for paint?

Go ahead and remove the wallpaper. Now prime the walls with a good acrylic primer and allow to dry for a few hours. With the primer dry you can now patch the areas that are damaged using drywall compound. Make sure to prime the repairs before painting.
