Jillian Michaels Might Be Engaged!

Celebrities Attend PETA's 35th Anniversary Party

WHAAAA?! Amazing news!

Jillian Michaels and her longtime live Heidi Rhoades are officially ENGAGED.

The fitness guru has finally decided to tie the knot with ladypal Heidi, and we know this because it’s a featured storyline on the first season of her hit E! show Just Jillian. Pretty high stakes teaser, no?

I mean, it shouldn’t come as a HUGE surprise…the two co-parent their two young children Pheonix and Lukensia, but when the couple was out grabbing ice cream people spotted some extra bling on THAT finger. Which is exciting for the whole family!

Check out their engagement rings HERE!

Jillian Michaels is Leaving The Biggest Loser After Last Year’s Controversy


The Biggest Loser trainer, Jillian Michaels, has decided to leave the show after last year’s controversial winner, Rachel Frederickson, lost a concerning amount of weight.

“After helping hundreds of contestants transform their lives and inspiring millions of viewers at home, The Biggest Loser and Jillian Michaels have decided to part ways and she will not be returning for season 16 when it airs in the fall,” NBC said in a statement.

This is the third time that Michaels has left the show.  However, sources say that this most recent departure has much more to do with her concerns regarding last season and the direction that show is taking.  After Frederickson’s dramatic and dangerous weight loss was revealed, Michaels spoke out in an interview with HuffPost Live:

 “Obviously, I thought she had lost too much weight and I was immediately concerned and wondering how this happened, how no one had said something to me and how the checks and balances that have been put into place, in my opinion, this had fallen through those checks and balances.”

I think this is a perfectly valid reason for Michaels to leave the show.  She’s a trainer and her job is to help people become healthy – not dangerously skinny.  I think it’s great for her to take a stand- too many people are so impressionable about their weight- and scary-skinny being glorified on TV isn’t going to give a good message out to those who are struggling with weight issues- on any end of the spectrum.

Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper says he was “stunned” by Rachel’s weight loss.


It was obvious that both trainers Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels were shocked by Rachel Frederickson’s 155-pound weight loss.

Now, in an interview for The Rachel Ray Show, he’s opening up about how he felt and the controversy around Frederickson’s thin body.

In an appearance taped Feb. 6 for the episode airing Feb. 13, Harper was asked by host Rachael Ray what he thought of fan remarks that the season 15 winner is now too skinny.

“What people don’t understand is, when the contestants leave to go home…they’re in charge of themselves,” he began. “I had not seen her until that night, and so when she walked out, I was just kind of like, ‘Whoa.’ And I’ve been on the show since the beginning, forever.”

“I was stunned,” the longtime fitness trainer admitted. “That would be the word. I mean, we’ve never had a contestant at 105 pounds.”

Harper and fellow trainer Jillian Michaels were initially reluctant to comment on Frederickson’s weight loss. On Wednesday, Feb. 5, both posted messages to their Facebook pages to “congratulate all of the BL contestants on their hard work.”

The statements went on to to say, “We’re not comfortable commenting on Rachel’s journey because we weren’t her trainers and weren’t given an opportunity to work with her at any point. Any questions about contestants on The Biggest Loser should be directed to the show’s producers.”

I think her weight loss WAS shocking, but is only part of her journey. Hopefully she settles into a more healthy weight.
