After returning for two seasons, Jillian Michaels has once again had enough of Biggest Loser and is eying an exit from the show.

A source tells People Michaels is concerned for the well-being of the contestants, who are urged to lose the highest percentage of their body weight.

Pink gorged on cheesecake and chicken wings during her pregnancy.

She told Closer magazine: "I put on nearly 50lbs and it was awesome. I knew that as soon as I got pregnant I was going to eat cheesecake and chicken wings - and I did. I gained every one of those pounds. But I thought I'd lose it a bit easier."

"Yoga Inferno" is an all-new, vigorous and focused yoga practice that will have you burning calories and "scorching fat," just as the DVD claims.

NBC Fall Season Preview: Spies, CIA Plots And Outsourcing

NBC Fall Preview
NBC is likely getting tired of being referred to as "fourth place NBC." Last year's Jay Leno experiment was clearly a disaster and served as a boon for TBS, which won the Conan sweepstakes. This fall, NBC has fresher programming. With aging favorites and risky new underdogs, does the network have a shot at moving up the ratings ladder, even to third place? Time will tell. Stranger things have happened. Here's a look at what new shows could make the grade and what's in store for old favorites.

April 28th, 2010 10:31am EDT
Jillian Michaels has been a target after her statements in Women's Health, which appeared to be against birthing a child so she could maintain her figure. Michaels is now defending her words.

"There is a misunderstanding circulating in the press on my personal choice to not get pregnant," she posted on her Facebook profile. "I think that pregnancy is admirable and...

Macy's 2009 Thanksgiving Day Parade: Meh

November 28th, 2009 8:51am EST
So, in the spirit of Turkey Day and all that is holy in the holiday season traditions, I got up too early to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade along with an equally weary Liz Lewis. This year was pretty run of the mill.

Like all years past, NBC rolled in with semi truck filled with shameless plugs, an overload of NBC promotions, and puns corny enough to even make younger kids grimace. The route changed, to the chagrin of all those with pricey Broadway real estate who look forward to this fall classic, and the cast of Glee was glaringly absent. With NBC bringing out some real...
