WNYW Anchors Settle Differences on ‘People’s Court’

Like an odd version of “This is Your Life,” Greg Kelly and his “Good Day New York” co-anchor Rosanna Scotto appeared on a special WNYW version of “The People’s Court.”

Scotto sued Kelly for pain and suffering. Kelly counter sued for $11 billion trillion.

As part of the evidence against her co-anchor, Scotto showed Judge Marilyn Milian a greatest hits clip of Kelly throwing a hula hoop at Scotto’s head, dumping water on her during a segment and getting sandwiched on top of her during a women’s football demo. Kelly wore an arm sling in hopes of winning sympathy from the audience he kept calling a jury.

Kelly lost. According to the story, he now has to peel potatoes. But after he was repeatedly called unathletic and clumsy he may have already served his sentence.
