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?!

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
