Jillian Michaels of “The Biggest Loser” recently told Women’s Health that she “can’t handle” the effect pregnancy would have on her body, so she hopes to adopt a child. Fans, including some Zap2it readers, found her comments to be offensive and shallow.
Michaels now tells Access Hollywood that she was misquoted. “The word ‘won’t’ and the word ‘ruin’ are not even in the article,” Jillian says. “It’s amazing, everybody’s asking about this and I’m like, ‘Did you read the article?’ ‘No I didn’t read the article.'”
]]>Tracey says, “Seriously can you be that superficial? If so, please don’t adopt. A
child is the greatest gift. You can always get back into shape after.
If you think your shape is more important than what a child can bring
to your life, then you have no business being a mother to one.”
House_Draven says, “I wouldn’t want someone to adopt a pet for such shallow, superficial
reasons, much less adopt a baby. I’m thoroughly repulsed. I suppose the
only good side to her comments is that she’s famous enough for them to
now be known throughout the adoption community, and hopefully someone
will think twice before approving her for a child.”
Shaheema says, “It’s
her choice, and a responsible one. Pregnancy does not equal motherhood.
The world is overpopulated as it is and so many unwanted babies need a
home. Good for her.”
Debbie says, “Oh puh-lease, she can get her body back into shape. SHE IS A FLIPPIN TRAINER DUH!!!!!”
