In a horrific apparent accident over the weekend on Saturday … fitness model- turned fitness expert – turned Bravo reality series star – Greg Plitt was killed when he was struck by a a Metrolink train in Burbank, California.  He was only 37 years old.  Greg had appeared on Bravo’s Work Out series.  Plitt also made appearances in daytime soaps in the role of  Henderson for three episodes on Days of our Lives during 2007 to 2008.

Police confirmed that Plitt was struck at 4:05 p.m. on the tracks at Front Street, just north of the Burbank Metrolink Station.  Sgt. Scott Meadows from the Burbank Police Department told PEOPLE that the death “appears to be an accident.”

In an update from TMZ late this afternoon:  “Cops say two men were filming Plitt on the tracks when the train conductor spotted him in the way. He attempted to stop and began sounding his horn — but Plitt remained on the tracks.
Investigators seized video of the incident as evidence.  There are also reports that Plitt have been filming some sort of fitness video near the tracks.  In another account, Metrolink passenger Victor Crowell told KABC 7 News: “He had on all black. The train went by. I saw him stumble over the tracks. He had a camcorder in his hand.”

A Bravo spokesperson related. “This is a terrible tragedy. Our thoughts and deepest sympathy are with Greg’s family and friends.”   Andy Cohen, former programming executive at Bravo and the host of Watch What Happens Live tweeted, “We couldn’t take our eyes off Greg Plitt after we cast him on Work Out – was as nice as he was beautiful.”

Plitt was also starring in Plitt in a docu-series, Friends to Lovers which just had its premiere last week!  Prior to becoming a fitness expert, Plitt worked as a U.S. Army Ranger after graduating from West Point in 2000.

A terrible loss that could have been prevented.

I just saw this on the NBC-4 news last night. They showed him doing push-ups on the tracks and an interview with family said he had a fascination with friends. That being said, has no one in the film industry learned anything from the “MIDNIGHT RIDER” tragedy last year?!

Domino

that should be fascination with trains, sorry.

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)
