The Latest On Danny VS Fairplay

Fairplay Sues Bonaduce for Alleged Foul Play
Danny Bonaduce said he'd be sued. And he was right.

Jonny Fairplay has slapped Bonaduce and Fox Reality Channel with a lawsuit over the award-show back flip that the Survivor castoff alleges left him with more than just wounded pride.

The suit, filed Tuesday in Los Angeles, seeks unspecified damages for battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence and negligent supervision.

The production company that coproduced the Fox Reality Channel Really Awards, and the owner of the Hollywood nightclub that hosted the event were also named as defendants.

It was on stage at the Oct. 2 taping of the Really Awards that Bonaduce tossed Fairplay over his head.

Per Los Angeles prosecutors, who last week declined to pursue criminal charges against Bonaduce, the radio cohost and Breaking Bonaduce star acted in self-defense, a reasonable reaction to Fairplay jumping up, and wrapping his arms and legs around him.

Per Fairplay's lawsuit, which was filed under his given name of Jon Dalton, Bonaduce threw Fairplay "face first" to the stage "without warning," an overreaction to Fairplay's playful actions that are "known to be part of Mr. Dalton's routine and something that the two had previously done before."

The lawsuit does not detail where Bonaduce, 48, and Fairplay, 33, previously engaged in playful jumping, and back-flipping conduct.

The lawsuit, however, does get into the gory details of Fairplay's injuries.

"With Mr. Dalton on the ground and his blood and broken teeth on the stage floor," the lawsuit says, "Mr. Bonaduce proceeded to parade around the stage with pride in the attack that he had just committed and encouraged the audience to applaud his conduct."

In the lawsuit, Fairplay is just as steamed at the event's producers and host as at Bonaduce, accusing all parties of not so much as calling an ambulance to tend to Fairplay's "multitude of injuries to his face, mouth, teeth, gums and feet." The lawsuit was brought, it says, to make these defendants pay for their "tortuous actions."

Bonaduce is specifically cited for his award-show banter in which he told Fairplay that the audience, who was booing Fairplay, hated the Survivor: Pearl Islands alum. The lawsuit also calls out Bonaduce for branding Fairplay a "punk," and for "boasting that he was going to beat [him]."

Last week on Adam Carolla's nationally syndicated morning radio show, which Bonaduce cohosts, the Partridge Family survivor said he expected to be sued by Fairplay. Bonaduce went on to predict that Fairplay would lose "rather badly."

The Fox Reality Really Awards are scheduled to be broadcast on the cable network on Saturday.

Danny Flies The Coup

From The Los Angeles Times, Sunday, October 7, 2007:
Ex-Partridge Roosts In A Loft Condo

Danny Bonaduce has had a tough time. And what do the tough do when the going gets tough? They get going.

After his wife, Gretchen, announced plans to divorce the former "Partridge Family" child star after 16 years of marriage, Bonaduce listed his Los Feliz home for sale for $4.5 million and bought himself an $825,000 condo in Hollywood.

The Los Feliz home is a classic, Spanish Andalusiaan mansion, built in 1926 by architect Harry Hayden Whiteley. It has four bedrooms and five bathrooms in 7,000 square feet. There is a theater, gardens and views to the mountains and ocean.

Gated at the street, the home has a two-story, hand painted ceiling and a restored entry. The three story house also has a media room, a gym and a patio.

Bonaduce bought a 2,300-square-foot condo in a newly built, six-unit building in Hollywood. It has two bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms. The development has roof terraces, a game room and a work studio.

Prosecutors Won't Break Bonaduce

Danny Bonaduce (l) and Jonny Fairplay (r)

Danny Bonaduce will not face charges for an alleged random act of badness against Jonny Fairplay.

Bonaduce's in the clear—with Los Angeles prosecutors, anyway—after the L.A. County District Attorney's Office opted Thursday to pass on pursuing an assault case against the former child star after he flung Fairplay, the former reality star, off his back at an awards show.

Fairplay, who was bloodied in the tussle at the Fox Reality Channel Really Awards, filed a complaint with police early Wednesday.

But prosecutors found "insufficient evidence" of wrongdoing and essentially sided with Bonaduce's version of the story: namely, that Fairplay started it.

"Victim [Fairplay] initiated contact [and] acted offensively," said the D.A.'s official judgment. "It did not appear that suspect [Bonaduce] intentionally tried to cause injuries but simply reacted to victim's actions."

The matter is being dismissed altogether and will not be passed down to the Los Angeles City Attorney's office for possible misdemeanor prosecution, D.A. spokeswoman Jane Robison said.

On Friday, Bonaduce and his cohosts on Adam Carolla's syndicated morning radio show reacted to the news by referring to the onetime Partridge Family wiseacre as "Free Bonaduce."

Reached for comment Friday morning, Marc Marcuse, Fairplay's manager, said he'd been unaware of prosecutors' decision and had "no comment at this point."

Marcuse said he last spoke with Fairplay, the villain from Survivor: Pearl Islands, back when he was known by his given name Jon Dalton, on Thursday. "He's in pain," Marcuse said. "And he was getting more surgery done on his mouth...At this point, Jonny's just recovering."

Bonaduce remarked on his radio show Wednesday that he expected Fairplay to sue. "But he'll lose rather badly," Bonaduce added.

The incident, as seen everywhere on the Internet, including the Fox Reality Channel Website, which has not shied away from promoting it, occurred when Fairplay took the stage at Hollywood's Boulevard 3 nightclub and got razzed by the audience.

"Are you guys really booing?" Fairplay asked.

At that point, Bonaduce stepped up onto the stage, tapped Fairplay on the shoulder, and, as the prosecutor's report put it, "said they were booing [Fairplay] because they hated him," which is more or less a word-for-word transcript of what Bonaduce actually said.

In short order, Bonaduce walked away, Fairplay called him back and leapt on him, "thrust[ing] his pelvis into suspect's body," as the D.A.'s office described it. Bonaduce, who as any viewer of his own reality series, VH1's Breaking Bonaduce, could attest, is a gym rat and onetime steroid user, removed Fairplay from his person with relative ease. The flipped-over Survivor castoff landed on his face, resulting in jaw and dental injuries, Marcuse said Wednesday.

While Bonaduce won't face criminal sanctions for the Fairplay incident, the author of the confessional memoir Random Acts of Badness has been held liable in the past for facial rearrangement. In 1991, Bonaduce was ordered to pay $3,000 to fix the nose of the transvestite he punched in the kisser.

Neither Bonaduce, 48, nor Fairplay, 33, was up for a Really Award, although both might be considered front-runners for next year's Favorite Fight category.

The awards, fight and all, are scheduled to air Oct. 13 on Fox Reality Channel.

Danny Bonaduce In On-Stage Scuffle

It looks like our favorite "red-headed hamburger" has made mince-meat out of an ex contestant from "Survivor" while on stage at an awards show for Reality TV. (Yes, folks -- they have officially run out of ideas for awards shows.) Below is the story and a clip from TV's "Extra."

Fairplay files police report on Bonaduce

LOS ANGELES - Former "Survivor" contestant Jonny Fairplay filed a police report Wednesday, alleging that Danny Bonaduce threw him and knocked out his teeth during an awards show.

The battery report was taken by police shortly before 2 a.m. at a Hollywood hospital where Fairplay was treated and released, Officer April Harding said.

"He had one tooth broken, another tooth missing from his gum line and two other teeth that were loose," she said.

The report, which listed Fairplay under his birth name of Jon Dalton, 33, said the reality show contestant was at an awards event when Bonaduce walked onto the stage without invitation and made a "derogatory statement" to Fairplay, Harding said.

"Dalton said he went to hug him and then when he did that, Bonaduce ... threw him over his shoulder ... and Dalton fell to the ground," Harding said.

"The investigation's in its initial phase. Currently we don't have any plans to arrest Bonaduce," she said.

Fairplay, a wrestler and reality show contestant, came in third on the 2003 CBS show "Survivor: Pearl Islands" but was roundly condemned by viewers for concocting a lie that his grandmother was dead to win sympathy from competitors.

Bonaduce, the center of the 2005 reality show "Breaking Bonaduce" that detailed his efforts to repair his marriage and recover from alcohol and other problems, most recently has been co-hosting Adam Carolla's radio show.

The incident took place during the Fox Reality Really Channel awards, which were being held at a nightclub on Sunset Boulevard. (They air 10 p.m. Oct. 13.) A videotape that aired on showed some audience members booing Fairplay, who was on stage as a presenter.

"Are you guys really booing?" Fairplay asked.

Bonaduce then comes onto the stage.

"They're booing 'cause they hate you" he said.

"That's a good thing, right?" a smiling Fairplay responded.

As Bonaduce walked away, Fairplay called after him. Then, still holding a microphone and with a look at the audience, he backed up and leaped onto Bonaduce, wriggling his legs. Bonaduce held him for a moment and then heaved him up over his head.

The 48-year-old Bonaduce, who first became a star at age 10 on "The Partridge Family," told TMZ that Fairplay "started to throttle me" and he threw him to stop the attack.

"I'm sorry he got hurt," he said.

However, Fairplay told TMZ he was giving Bonaduce a hug — one of his signature moves as a performer.

"It's a nice thing," he said.

Bonaduce "threw me over his head as hard as he could. ... I just went, like, mouth first into the stage," he said.

"It knocked one tooth out and then it moved three others ... there's like floating bones. One tooth is, like, shattered eight times. There's like eight breaks," Fairplay said.

Fairplay said he underwent 2 1/2 hours of dental surgery and needs additional work.

Asked if he had any last words to say to Bonaduce, he replied: "You're mean."
