Celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels is on the cover of Health magazine this month but outside of the typical health and fitness questions, the writer asks, “Have you always been comfortable talking openly about being gay?” Here’s how Jillian answered:
“I don’t know that I am [comfortable talking about being gay] now, to be honest with you. The gay thing has always been hard for me. When Heidi and I are out and somebody older asks, ‘Are you sisters?’ I say, ‘We’re friends.’ I guess it comes from thinking that they will be shocked or disturbed. Look, I wish I had some strapping football player husband. It would be such a dream to be ‘normal’ like that, but I’m just not.
