“Biggest Loser” trainer Jillian Michaels — the only woman I’d trust to rape me with the appropriate amount of force — has fielded three different lawsuits in the last week or so because fatties are upset that her diet pills don’t work. The plaintiffs are also mad at that sly huckster who came to town and sold them what he promised was a revitalizing tonic.
[Kathy] Hensley claims Jillian and those companies — Thin Care and Basic Research — failed to disclose that the main ingredients of the “Jillian Michael Maximum Strength Fat Burner” allegedly combine to make a “toxic cocktail.”
In the lawsuit, Hensley claims one of the pill’s ingredients — citrus aurantium — is “potentially lethal” and known to cause high blood pressure and serious cardiac problems in certain individuals. [TMZ]
You know what else is potentially lethal and known to cause high blood pressure and serious cardiac problems? Being fat. Maybe the pills aren’t the problem.
