36 Celebs That Are Out And Proud
For so many years, celebrities had to hide their sexuality. Afraid of not getting work or keeping the jobs they already had, so many men and women of music, television and movies lived closeted and non-authentic lives. Today, these talented individuals use their sexuality not only as a platform for truth, but also as a way to assist other young people to be true to themselves and not live a life in fear. Some may surprise you, others are well-known to the LGBT community. Their stories instill hope that sexuality will become less of an issue then living an inspired life.

Jillian Michaels has taken it all off to flaunt her toned body in the latest issue of SHAPE magazine.

The now former host of NBC's The Biggest Loser (the network announced on Wednesday that she won't be back this fall), 40, explains that she looks better now than she did decades ago, despite finding it "hard" to hit the age milestone.

""I won't lie. This birthday was hard. But when I think back on my 20s and 30s, I look better now than I ever have," she tells SHAPE. "Yes, I'm older but I'm also wiser and that's a more intrinsic type of beauty."

One of her strengths, as evidenced by her p...

Jillian Michaels
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.

The show's competitive nature was blamed for the gaunt appearance of recent winner Rachel Fredrickson. Michaels' stunned face was posted along with photos of F...

Jillian Michaels Yoga Inferno
Jillian Michaels' latest workout DVD is so hot, she and her fitness buddies had to wear sunglasses during filming. Okay, it may have had something to do with the extremely bright desert sun, but the workouts are definitely heat (and sweat) inducing.

If you liked Michaels' "Yoga Meltdown," you'll love her latest workout DVD. "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. You'll definitely burn a lot of calories, particularly if you perform the advanced versions of her exercises.

The Biggest Loser premiered its 14th season last night with some new twists, and familiar changes. Jillian Michaels returned to train this season’s contestants, and there are some children joining in the weight loss challenges.

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.

Jillian Michaels Defends Pregnancy Statement

4/28/2010 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.

"I'm going to adopt. I can't handle doing that to my body. Also, when you rescue something, it's like rescuing a part of yourself," is what Jillian was quoted as saying in the magazine. She now says it was taken out of context.

"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

11/28/2009 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...
