Just last month, Jillian Michaels made the not-so-shocking announcement that she was leaving The Biggest Loser, and now we finally know why!
The professional trainer opened up about her departure from the show after 10 years, and she didn't exactly hide the fact that she clashed with some of the producers! One of Jillian's biggest issues was how she was portrayed on the show, as she revealed:
"In the beginning of the show it was tough love. You saw the tough, and you saw the love. You saw none of the relationships, none of the bonds that I build with my clients."
Jillian's image as a tough and borderline "abusive" trainer only got worse when she was accused of cheating when she let some of her contestants use caffeine pills on the show. The problem really hit home when someone approached her daughter and told her:
"I know who your mom is – she's a cheater. I saw it on TV."
At the end of the day, Jillian decided the best move was to just move on, and after 10 years on the show it's probably not a bad idea! Besides, now she can focus on being a trainer AND a mom!
