Jillian Michaels, America’s favorite fitness guru and Biggest Loser trainer, came out of the closet a few months ago, admitting her bisexuality. Since then, Jillian has flooded her twitter page with sweet words about the new love in her life, never mentioning the sex of the person. Now it is being reported that the partner who is bringing so much love to Michael’s life is Vanessa Marcil.
Marcil is a former star of the soap General Hospital, where she was briefly engaged to co-star Tyler Christopher. She also has a child with Brian Austin Greene and was briefly married to Corey Feldman in the early 90′s. Because of these public romances the media, including supposedly LGBT friendly Perez Hilton, are reporting that Michaels turned Marcil gay and that Marcil is an “ex-hetero.” Prior to the rumors of the two being together, there was much media attention on the “best friend” relationship between the two women.
Anyone in the LGBT community has suspected Marcil’s bisexuality for a long time. The buzz reached a fever pitch during her General Hospital days, when Marcil wore a feminist charm around her neck. Marcil also attracted the attention of the press with her frequent, “best friendships” with women, including General Hospital co-star, Sarah Brown.
Congrats to the happy couple. You can catch Jillian Michaels on ABC’s the Biggest Loser and Marcil on Lifetime, in some movie where she finds love and happiness with a man.
