Jillian Michaels “Pregnancy Will Ruin My Body” Misquote
Jillian Michaels is livid that she’s been misquoted as having told the May 2010 issue of Women’s Health that she wants children, but doesn’t plan on getting pregnant because the weight gain will “ruin” her stunning physique.
The tough-as-nails fitness guru created a stir with bloggin’ mamas when she reportedly told the lifestyle mag that she’s planning to adopt kids because she doesn’t want to ruin her super-fit figure by getting pregnant.
There’s only one problem: Jillian claims she never explicitly made such a remark.
“I never ever said that,” she emphatically told NBC’s Access Hollywood on Monday.
The portly-preteen-turned-kick-ass trainer says all she actually told the mag was: “I’m going to adopt,” and, “I can’t handle doing that [pregnancy] to my body.”
“The word ‘won’t’ and the word ‘ruin’ are not even in the article,” Jillian said emphatically. “It’s amazing, everybody’s asking about this and I’m like, ‘Did you read the article?’ ‘No I didn’t read the article.'”
She added: “I can’t understand how people can judge or question something that they haven’t even bothered to find out if it’s real or not.”
Jillian’s Biggest Loser spinoff, Losing It with Jillian Michaels, will premiere on The Peacock this summer.
