Jillian Michaels Wishes She’d Been Born Straight

“I’ve been approached about having mutual approval over everything to do a reality show. It’s interesting because we can talk about parenting, relationships, health—all the things that are important to me. But then I think, What if I open up and people attack us just because we’re a gay family? It scares the hell out of me….I don’t know that I am [comfortable talking openly about being gay] now, to be honest with you. The gay thing has always been hard for me. When Heidi and I are out and somebody older asks, ‘Are you sisters?’ I say, ‘We’re friends.’ I guess it comes from thinking that they will be shocked or disturbed. Look, I wish I had some strapping football player husband. It would be such a dream to be ‘normal’ like that, but I’m just not.”

Fitness guru Jillian Michaels came out as bisexual in 2011 and struggles with discrimination just like anyone else. She told Health magazine about the fears that she and her partner Heidi Rhoades face simply for being who they are and their desire to fit in. The couple has two kids together. It’ll be a happy day when her family is considered just as “normal” as any other — or better yet, when society’s obsession with normalcy fades away altogether. Keep reading »

Jillian Michaels Adopting From The Congo, Keeping Her Hard Body

“My dossier, which is your paperwork portfolio, is in to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Now it’s just a waiting game. It could be six months, twelve months; it could be two years. Or, it could be tomorrow! They call you and they say, ‘Oh, we have your referral,’ which is essentially the child they match you up with, and you go overseas and you get him or her.”

Jillian Michaels confirms that, now that her contract with “The Biggest Loser” is over, she is in the process of adopting a baby from the Congo. Last year, she let us in on her reasons for wanting to adopt rather than having one herself. “I can’t handle doing that to my body,” she said. How noble? This way, she helps a child in need … and doesn’t damage her six pack. [Showbiz Spy] Keep reading »

Jillian Michaels Leaving “The Biggest Loser”: What Should She Do Next?

Jillian Michaels seems like someone I should like. She is hardworking, entrepreneurial, ardently tries to bring out the best in people, and is famous for something other than her butt. But frankly, the woman terrifies me. I cannot watch “The Biggest Loser” without fear that her glistening six-pack of steel will appear in my living room and scream, “Drop and give me 20! No, 50!”

Jillian recently tweeted that she is moving onto greener pastures. “Season 11 of Biggest Loser will be my last :) have to finish out my contract,” she said, referring to the season that starts in January. The notoriously intense personal trainer told her fans that she wants to “become a mommy” (likely through adoption), but we have some other career ideas for Miss Jillian: Keep reading »

Are Formerly Chubby Trainers More Credible?

I’m going to tell you a secret that I usually don’t have to reveal—I am a closet aerobics junkie. I have a binder of workout DVDs for every kind of dancing imaginable, various generic “burning the bulge” titles, Hip Hop Abs, Slim in 6 and whatever infomercial has roped me in this week. And every six months or so, I remember that I’ve gained 20 pounds since college, go into healthy mode and actually use said DVDs. I have intense emotional reactions to all of the people on the tapes, telling me I’m doing a good job, even though I have been doing wonky, ineffective versions of what they’re telling me to do.
