The Revolution's Co-Host Harley Pasternak Sued For Punching Incident in Apartment Complex!



The Revolution, the ill-fated ill-conceived concept and replacement series on ABC Daytime for the beloved One Life to Live,  not only tanked, but so to has one of the show’s co-hosts, celebrity fitness trainer, Harley Pasternak!

In a riveting news item from the New York Daily News it appears that Pasternak had anger management issues that came to a light in an apartment complex basketball court in New York City, and thus the trainer is being sued by two men!

Here are the deets!  “Pasternak waas busted for punching two Manhattan men in a squabble over a basketball court, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Manhattan Supreme Court.   Pasternak took a deal that forced him to sit through an anger-management class in exchange for making the misdemeanor assault charges from the January attack disappear. If he stays out of trouble, the criminal case will be dismissed.   But now he’s got new legal woes.  The men Pasternak socked are suing him, claiming the attack was “malicious, outrageous, offensive and intentional.” Pasternak, who has built a national reputation for his Five Factor Diet, could not be reached for comment. His attorney, Eric Arnone, declined to comment.

The trouble started about 7:45 p.m. Jan. 29 when Matthew Spritz, a lawyer, and Michael Berro, an exec with a tobacco wholesaler, were shooting hoops in a private gym in Berro’s building on W. 24th St. when Pasternak interrupted to ask when the gym would be free, the lawsuit states.  Pasternak left but returned a half-hour later and “began to hurl insults” at Berro, a 5-foot-six-inch, 140-pound man who was dwarfed by Pasternak’s 6-foot, 220-pound frame, Spritz said. Spritz moved to defend Berro, but Pasternak shoved a camera phone in his face, announcing he wanted Spritz’ picture to get him barred from the building where Berro owns his apartment and Pasternak was renting a unit with his wife, the lawsuit states.   When Spritz pushed the phone away, Pasternak smashed him in the jaw with a closed fist. Berro intervened and Pasternak slammed him in the nose, too, according to the lawsuit.

More than a dozen witnesses ran to separate the men as Pasaternak hurled insults: “Nice face. Want to go again?” and “Yeah, that’s right, I just spanked you guys,” according to the lawsuit.   Both men have had hefty medical and dental bills, according to court papers.   Building concierge Leo Frias said Pasternak, who was under court order to stay away from the two men, moved out about two months ago after living there only six months.  “He was a low-key guy — one of my favorite residents,” Frias said. “It’s an unfortunate thing.”The lawsuit is just the latest setback for Pasternak, whose clients include Hillary Duff, Katy Perry, Halle Berry and Jessica Simpson. This summer, ABC-TV cancelled “The Revolution,” a daytime lifestyles talk show that he co-hosted. Frias said building managers have a zero-tolerance policy for nonsense and expect residents to “respect the staff, the people here, the whole environment. “ If they don’t, they’re checked on the spot.”

Wow soapers, even the casting decisions of The Revolution did not bode well in the long run for the alphabet network! Weigh-in!

Hmmm.. Too bad ABC can’t be sued for canceling ONE LIFE TO LIVE !

te he he


It just goes to show how ill-conceived this mess, The Revolution, was.

In other news, their other ill-conceived mess, Good Afternoon America, ratings “plummet” in week 4 according to Mark Berman. He says it is as much as a 70% loss from OLTL numbers. And this garbage is supposed to run for NINE weeks?

I bet the good people at ABC are all patting themselves on the back over that one. Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!

This show (GAA) is total disaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With all due respect Michael, this story is a total waste of space on your website. I’m trying to forget that this “show” ever existed in the first place. So why should we even care about Pasternak or the rest of the hosts of The Revolution?

I know, right? Also, that picture of that poor woman in the pink gets framed just right so it looks like the article is about her. I thought it was because I never watched the stupid show to begin with.

I get so angry that OLTL was cancelled for this CRAPPY loser of a show!!!!!!!! All those commericals for this CRAPPY show made me throw-up and really angry…I am glad it’s gone….None of these replacement shows will NEVER WORK on DAYTIME PROGRAMMING!!!! Next to go The Chew another revolting show…Can’t understand why it is stiull on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Chews whole concept makes me sick…Get the bromo seltzer……………


The Young and the Restless Pays Tribute to Billy Miller at Conclusion of Episode

On Thursday, The Young and the Restless paid a special tribute to one of their favorite sons, Billy Miller. The actor who passed away on September 15th at the age of 43, was honored by the long-running CBS soap opera at the end of today’s episode.

Y&R shared on social media, “To end today’s episode we paid tribute to a greatly missed member of the Y&R family. Billy Miller will forever be in our hearts.”

Miller, who played Billy Abbott from 2008-2014 and won three Daytime Emmys for the role, was remembered with four photos from his time in Genoa City and as part of the legacy of Y&R.


Since his passing, many of his co-stars from both The Young and the Restless and General Hospital have shared their grief and remembrances including: Y&R’s Jess Walton, Eric Braeden, Elizabeth Hendrickson, Eileen Davidson, Jason Thompson, Finola Hughes and more.

Following Miller’s departure from Y&R, he joined General Hospital to take over the role of Jason Morgan/Drew Cain from 2014-2019.  Billy started his daytime career on All My Children as Richie Novack in 2007.

‘Dancing with the Stars’ Might Delay Its Premiere, ‘Veep’ Star Matt Walsh to ‘Pause’ His Involvement as Celebrity Contestant Due to Strikes

More pushback for ABC and Disney+’s, upcoming season premiere of Dancing with the Stars.  Now comes word that ABC may delay its scheduled season 32 debut episode.

After the show was picketed by WGA and SAG-AFTRA members. one of the show’s celebrity contestants is ‘pausing’ his involvement with competing on the show, and that would be Veep star Matt Walsh.

In a statement, Walsh revealed, “I was excited to join the show and did so under the impression that it was not a WGA show and fell under a different agreement.  This morning when I was informed by my union, the WGA, that it is considered struck work I walked out of my rehearsal. I have been and will always stand with my union members of the WGA, SAG and DGA.”

Walsh added, “Beyond our union artists, I am sensitive to the many people impacted by the strike and I hope for a speedy and fair resolution, and to one day work again with all the wonderful people I met at DWTS who tolerated my dancing.”

As previously reported, DWTS falls under SAG-AFTRA’s Network Code contract, which covers talk, variety shows and soap operas and is at play through June 2024. Thus, celebrities taking part in the show, are not in violation of SAG-AFTRA strike rules.

Meanwhile, though an unscripted reality series, Dancing With the Stars is a signatory to the Writers Guild’s minimum basic agreement. DWTS in the the past has employed a WGA writer among its staff of reportedly, 500.  However, given the harsh blowback of participants crossing WGA lines, ABC is now strongly considering delaying its September 26th season premiere of the ballroom dancing/competition series.

So, what do you think of Matt Walsh’s suspending involvement on DWTS? Should the show also pause its premiere till resolution of the WGA strike, at least? The WGA and AMPTP are set to continue talks today on Thursday to hopefully move towards an agreement to end the strike.
