Get your Freak on: Brett Eldredge is ready for the backstage hang with Blake Shelton

ABC/Image Group LA When Brett Eldredge kicks off Blake Shelton‘s Country Music Freaks Tour tonight in Oklahoma, it’ll mark a personal milestone for him: It’s his last outing as an opening act, before he embarks on his own headlining The Long Way Tour in April.

It’s a full-circle moment for Brett, since once of the very first shows he ever opened was for Blake.

“I’m excited that Blake is my last, like before I go jump into that,” Brett says, “because I just have such a comfort with that guy. For one, he knows who he is and he’s always been so real to me.”

“He’s no different from when I had nothing going on. I think [when] I opened the show for him, my record deal wasn’t done yet. But we hung out after the show like we were best buds… and I love that about him… He’s just an Oklahoma boy that is not only a huge artist and amazing singer, but star now, but he doesn’t act like that at all.”

Brett’s looking forward to experiencing what Blake’s tour is like behind-the-scenes.

“I’ve seen him a couple times live,” he admits, “but I’ve never got to really spend time backstage and stuff with him, and kinda seeing how his day’s going. I love those moments of building up to the show too, and hanging out, and of course, the moments after. I’m sure there’ll be some late hangs.”

Carly Pearce and Trace Adkins join Brett and Blake for the first show of the Country Music Freaks trek at BOK Center tonight in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Reps for Scott Baio respond to charges of abusive behavior

By Stephen Iervolino

Raymond Hall/GC Images(LOS ANGELES) — Representatives for Scott Baio held a press conference Wednesday afternoon to forcefully deny charges leveled earlier in the day by former Charles in Charge child star Alexander Polinksy, that Baio had been abusive towards him for years while they worked together on the show.

Baio was not present at the news conference but Baio’s spokesman, Brian Glicklich, and his lawyer, Jennifer McGrath, addressed the accusations on the actor’s behalf.

Glicklich read at statement from Baio when said, in part, “I am stunned that anyone could be so cruel as to attack not just me, but my entire family with lies.”

Glicklich also noted that, “Scott denies every single claim of inappropriate behavior.”

Earlier Wednesday, Polinksy alleged that Baio began harassing and abusing him after he witnessed an intimate moment between the actor and an underage Nicole Eggert. Polinksy accused Baio of using homosexual slurs against him and frequently humiliating him in front of the cast and crew. Polinksy said the abuse also turned physical.

Eggert backed up Polinsky’s claims. She has already alleged that Baio sexually abused her when she was a minor, a claim Baio has denied.

Polinksy and Eggert have filed reports with the Los Angeles Police Department, which is investigating. Baio’s reps said the claims made by Eggert and Polinsky are provably false and asserted that an investigation will clear their client.

Furthermore, Baio may take action against his accusers. At Wednesday’s press conference, McGrath said, “When this police investigation concludes and Scott is totally cleared of any wrongdoing, he will pursue any and all legal options available to him as to anyone who has knowingly made false claims about him.”
