Former Biggest Loser yell-mentor Jillian Michaels has opened up about the reasons she left the show, and it's more or less exactly what you would expect.
Michaels told People that she and the producers had a few fundamental disagreements, one of which was the way she was portrayed in recent seasons. "In the beginning of the show it was tough love. You saw the tough, and you saw the love," she said. Recently, though, she thinks she was depicted as overly harsh: "You saw none of the relationships, none of the bonds that I build with my clients." Which, in her opinion, caused "millions of people [to] have this warped perception of me."
