Jillian Michaels, a personal trainer known for her appearances on NBC’s reality weight loss competition The Biggest Loser, identified herself as an extremely self-loathing lesbian or bisexual woman in an interview with Health magazine this week.
She told Ladies Home Journal in 2010 that she could fall in love with either a man or woman, but she has apparently chosen to settle down with a woman, her wife Heidi Rhoades, with whom she shares two children. She doesn’t seem to have any complaints about that, but oh just think of the way life could be without “the gay thing”!
“I don’t know that I am [comfortable talking about being gay] now to be honest with you,” she told Health. “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.”
He’s no strapping football player, but if all else fails, we think Rupert Everett would marry her.
