Jillian Michaels Leaving Biggest Loser, Wants Kids
Bye, bye, Jillian Michaels.
The tough-talking trainer and fitness guru announced that she is leaving the NBC reality competition that made her famous.
"Season 11 of Biggest Loser will be my last :) have to finish out my contract," Michaels, 36, Tweeted earlier this week.
Michaels explained her decision -- and her desire to have kids. "I want to take a year off TV and focus on becoming a mommy and doing more charity work," she wrote.
Michaels launched her own weight-loss show over the summer, Losing It -- which also inspired her, she said.
"Shooting Losing It also had big impact on me," she said of the series, in which she helped kids slim down. "Living with kids, I saw firsthand what I was missing."
As for Michaels' replacement on The Biggest Loser? "They already hired her," she told a Twitter follower. "Using my last season to help launch her in season 11."
Michaels' final Biggest Loser season gets underway this January.
