I just saw an interview with Jillian Michaels on CBS Sunday Morning. She talked about how she’s now a “brand.” She talked about being so stressed out she wants to eat ice cream for dinner and drink wine straight from the bottle. She talked about being so busy she hasn’t been to the gym for weeks. She didn’t clarify if that means she hasn’t even done a workout at home. Given her net worth now, I’m sure she has some equipment of her own.
She also brought up what she claims is her own history of being a fat girl in high school. A photo of the teen aged Jillian was shown and she did look chubby.
She described her teen years and her home life during that time as horrible; she described herself as extremely unattractive, awkward, and unhappy. She uses this to claim she “gets it.” But what does she “get”?
“Lazy, weak, pathetic….victim mentality…I won’t listen to it.” That is how Jillian Michaels sees fat people.
So Jillian Michaels had a shitty teen aged life and now she wants to hate in every fat person what she hated in herself. And build a media empire to do it.
