Today we talk about how reality and tv are different. So when I say I don’t like Heidi, I don’t know Heidi, so it is more accurate to say I don’t like the way they are editing Heidi.
I was really pretty sure I wasn’t going to like Jillian Michael’s’ new show Just Jillian. I couldn’t see Jillian do what I call realty show shenanigans. What?! Carrot Top how did you get here? So I watched the show with fingers crossed. Here is what I learned:
- She is super sensitive
- She is HYPER superstitious
- She is a phenomenal mother
- She loves her partner
- She always wants to be the best at everything she does and never wants to let people down.
You get to meet Jon Carlo and some of the other people you hear mentioned on her podcast. You get an idea of just how much she is trying tackle every single day. It’s a ton.
I was deeply moved watching how humble she is when people come up and just WORSHIP her, and how again and again she deflected the praise when itwas “You did this” meaning Jillian did this for the person. Jill would quick to say “thanks for saying that, but to make sure that the FAN took all the credit. Jillian said, No, YOU did it.
I’m ready for episode two.
