Looks like the prescription didn’t work for Jillian Michaels: The TV superstar trainer is leaving the daytime syndicated hit show “The Doctors” after a half season.
According to insiders who spoke to the New York Post, Jillian “wasn’t a good fit” since she was the only co-host among the other four—Travis Stork, Lisa Masterson, James Sears, and Drew Ordon—who wasn’t a physician. (Sounds like a recipe for massive ego clashing if you ask us.)
“Jillian has contributed greatly to our show this season, and we value her talent and insight as she has inspired countless people to improve their lives,” the show said in a statement. “Although it wasn’t the fit we both hoped for…Jillian will always be a part of ‘The Doctors’ family.”
Jillian issued her own public farewell, albeit a more succinct one: “I have enjoyed my time on the show and the opportunity it provided me in my mission to help others improve their lives.”
The 37-year-old trainer is most famous for appearing on NBC’s the “Biggest Loser.” Although she officially left the show earlier last year, we’re sure Bob Harper wouldn’t mind sharing the limelight again if she were itching to make a comeback.
