Jillian Michaels Has Two Brand New Babies—Oh, And She's Also Dating a Woman

Jillian Michaels, who rose to fame as one of the original trainers on The Biggest Loser, doesn't seem to do anything quietly. So perhaps we should not be surprised that she's dropped not one but three gossip bombshells in a single day. Guess what? She's dating a woman, AND she's become a new mom to not one but two children more or less overnight. Whoa, girl, give us a second to catch up.

While it had previously been reported in a few places that Michaels was bisexual, she's never really openly discussed who she was dating. But now everyone knows. Her name is Heidi Rhoades, and she just gave birth to a baby boy named Phoenix. In a bit of funny timing, the adoption from Haiti that Michaels has long been pursuing also came through. So now she is mom to two-year-old Lukensia as well. She'd initially said she was adopting as a single parent, but now she's gone official as having a full-on, instant family. She looks very happy, but she does say it's been a bit of a whirlwind: "I don't even answer email. I don't have time to care about anything else." Well, good for her. And, it's nice, for once, to be overwhelmed with an abundance of good news from a celebrity's life. [People]

The new issue of Rolling Stone is mostly about the dearly departed Beastie Boy Adam "MCA" Yauch. There are interviews with Ad Rock and Mike D, which are their first since MCA died. Ad Rock says this of how he's doing after losing his friend:

I'm totally numb. My wife is like, "I want to make sure you're getting it out." But then I'm walking the dog and I'll start crying on the street... It's pretty fucking crazy…

Oh, those poor guys. Even though it will make you sad, it's well worth reading both interviews. [Rolling Stone]

Yesterday we learned that Kelly Clarkson's new boyfriend is killing her creativity by making her too happy to write angsty songs. Today we learn that he is also killing her appetite. Regarding her recent weight loss, she said this:

I would love to say that it had something to do with my work, but it doesn't. I have a boyfriend, and if I'm being completely honest, no one likes to be not toned when you are dating someone. […] I tone whenever I want, and I chose to now because my boyfriend and I are both really into it. But we don't work out together. We did that once and I didn't like huffing and puffing. I didn't like looking all red and gross, so I don't do that.

There is so much to say, and yet there is nothing more to say. [People]
