Jillian Michaels famously left The Biggest Loser because she felt the show had taken a negative turn and destroyed her reputation as a health and wellness advocate in favor of promoting dramatic weightless results. But Jillian hasn’t left reality TV behind for good – she’s embarking on her own solo show and she’s also rebranding herself after taking a public beating.
In an effort to reestablish her image after her merry-go-round relationship with the Biggest Loser, Jillian now reveals a softer approach – and a more down-to-earth one. Like “hell no!” she doesn’t like to exercise, “I watch the clock every minute,” the personal trainer admits.
“People assume that I think I’m better than that show. I do not. Also, there’s a misconception that I keep leaving,” Jillian explains. “On season three, I was fired. On season 11, I asked for time off to start a family. In this go-round, it was a mutual decision. I wanted to make some creative changes, but I was not a producer. I need some control in something with my name attached to it.”
On Friday, Leah‘s second husband, Jeremy Calvert, took to Twitter to share that the Teen Mom 2hot mess has done it again. Jeremy accused Leah of cheating on him with Robbie and announced that he is filing for divorce.
Victoria’s rep Steve Honig reached out to share that she did NOT get paid for her guest appearance on the show. “Victoria did not get paid for her appearance on RHONJ, so she didn’t do anything for money. ” He continued, “And as far as her being a liar, well, we have a polygraph test that says otherwise.”
It turns out when Kim told Poison Gorga she runs with the big the boys, she wasn’t lying – her man is New Jersey’s infamous “King of Con” Thomas Giacomaro! Thomas just got out of prison after serving time for bilking investors out of $73 million dollars! And now he’s ready for the next phase: working on a book, movie deal and television show about his legendary life. “Hundreds of millions of dollars went through my hands,” Thomas bragged. “It makes ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ look like he stole a pocketbook.”
Last week on Manzo’d With Children, we left with Albie Manzo and Lauren Manzo fighting on the deck about her disapproval of Albie’s new girlfriend, Brittany. Albie stormed off and went crying to Caroline about how people need to just stay out of his business. Lauren (having no friends) calls her fiancé, Vito Scalia crying about how mean Ablie was to her. Caroline Manzo doesn’t want Albie and Lauren to fight and certainly doesn’t want either of them to not speak to each other ever again. So mama Manzo tells Albie to get over himself and tells Lauren she should have not called Albie a d%*k and a douche and to make peace otherwise they are all kicked out of the house (yeah right, Caroline).
This big blowout causes Albie to make a 911 call to Amber, his life coach, for a home visit STAT! Amber uses her jump to conclusion mat to discover that perhaps Caroline and Lauren are too involved in Albie’s life and their motivations are more about themselves than Albie’s well-being. Bingo. Well, hopefully Albie will be able to resolve this issue with Lauren in a civilized way.
Bethenny shared on her website, “Well, there has been a lot of speculation about my return to television and to Bravo in particular. Bravo and I have maintained an incredible partnership and relationship over the years, which is something I am very proud of and grateful for. It really is where it all began for me, and you can’t forget where you came from.”
Andy commented and asked Teresa Aprea if she felt bad about her scene with the “clink clink” karma diss, saying she took a lot of heat over it on Twitter for “kicking”Teresa Giudice when she’s down. Teresa A says she did feel bad and that the two of them are okay at the moment. “I did apologize. It came from a place of anger. It was mean, it was a little harsh. So, I did apologize and I did address the situation.” Teresa G sees the clip for the first time at the reunion and Teresa Aprea admits that Tre was pissed.
