Jillian Michaels wishes she were straight

In a recent interview with Health magazine, Jillian Michaels opens up about her sexuality, and the pressure society puts on her.

When asked if she would ever consider doing her own reality show, Michaels responded: "I've been approached about having mutual approval over everything to do a reality show. It's interesting because we can talk about parenting, relationships, health—all the things that are important to me. But then I think, What if I open up and people attack us just because we're a gay family? It scares the hell out of me.

Then asked if she is comfortable talking openly about being gay. "I don't know that I am now, to be honest with you. The gay thing has always been hard for me. When Heidi and I are out and somebody older asks, "Are you sisters?" I say, "We're friends." I guess it comes from thinking that they will be shocked or disturbed. Look, I wish I had some strapping football player husband. It would be such a dream to be "normal" like that, but I'm just not.


this bo$$ though, still coming out & living her life even though she's brave enough to admit that it's scary.
