Jillian Michaels Reignites Feud With Andy Cohen And Al Roker

    During a recent interview, trainer Jillian Michaels reignited an ongoing feud over the keto diet with hosts Andy Cohen and Al Roker. While appearing on the #ADULTING podcast hosted by Zack Peter and Abigail Fraher, the Biggest Loser host recounted the beginning of the feud—and may have started a new one with Teddi Mellencamp.

    “Like with keto—Al Roker and Andy Cohen—I was like, ‘Great, let’s have this debate!’ [They were] gone. Vanished! Bye, bye. Gone!” said Michaels, who denounced keto in 2019 (in a Women’s Health interview) and said it’s “bad for a million reasons.” She believes that keto is not a sustainable nutrition plan for weight loss. “You know, anybody who—paleo, vegan — I mean, bring it! So, you have to do your work and be prepared in order to put something out in the world that has staying power and that delivers on the results.”

    After her impassioned argument against keto, Roker (who was following the keto diet in 2019) tweeted that Michaels “promoted on camera bullying, deprivation, manipulation and more weekly in the name of weight loss. Now those sound like bad ideas”

    Cohen made Michaels his “Jackhole of the Day” on watch What Happens Live and said, “a lot of people think Jillian Michaels is a bad idea.”

    On TheSkimm’s podcast last year, she doubled down on her claims about keto. “What’s so disappointing is that for years I’ve done the Today show. For years I’ve done segments with this guy. I was always greeted with the ‘Kiddo,’ right? And the big hug and the ‘How’s the family?’ and, like, I always thought we were homies,” she said of Roker. “I’m not just a fitness trainer. I have three certifications. I do continuing education. I’m a certified nutritionist.” Andy Cohen, she said, “is just not a nice guy. And I’ve said that for many years.”

    During this latest podcast appearance, she also commented on Real Housewives alum Teddi Mellencamp’s fitness accountability program called All In by Teddi, which came under fire in September after it became clear that there are no nutritionists or licensed healthcare providers on staff. The program can cost as much as $599 in the first few weeks.

    “You know, these women are not, they’re not nutritionists. They’re not registered dietitians. It sounds like they’re not certified fitness experts,” Michaels said. “And it doesn’t sound like they got all of those individuals behind their program. And I could very well be wrong—I don’t know—but it doesn’t sound like they did. So, this is where I would say, look, get out of your lane. You don’t see me commenting on politics? I don’t understand half of these policies. I’m not an economist. I didn’t go to school to study foreign policy. You know what I mean? That’s not my lane … I would say, stay in your lane. And when you’re in your lane, do your work.”
