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!

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!

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.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

In the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, Sterling K. Brown tries to win another Emmy for his role as Randall Pearson on This Is Us.   To view all the nominees, head on over to the TV Academy’s website.

This past June, CBS also aired the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-packaged show for broadcast due to Covid-19 restrictions.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
