She’s lean, she’s mean, she has long hair now and she’s putting fear and lust into the loins of housewives across America. Superstar trainer and celesbian extraordinaire, Jackie Warner, will premiere her latest show on the Bravo network, Thintervention with Jackie Warner, on September 6.
Full Disclosure: I am a huge fan of pretty much any show that includes fat people trying to lose weight and lesbians, so don’t expect any flip-flopping from me in terms of wanting to watch this.
Our fearless, carb-deprived lesbian leader is taking eight people on a seven-week journey to change the rest of their lives. I need to know why I keep missing these casting calls because this is all I’ve ever wanted to do with my life (besides blogging for a gay website, of course).
From Bravo’s description below, it actually seems a bit like a mixture of (stay with me here) Celebrity Fit Club, Losing It with Jillian Michaels and Celebrity Rehab.
In Thintervention, Warner of the Bravo series Work Out will do what she does best – kick butt and inspire drastic lifestyle changes for her overweight clients who are struggling to lose weight and get healthy for good. Warner will push them to their limit at her gym and inspire them with intense workouts at amazing locations. Not sent to a weight loss camp or facility, instead Warner works with them in their real lives surrounded by the everyday distractions and stresses of family and work, making the chances for long-term success greater. Progress will be checked through group therapy and weekly weigh-ins. Warner will do whatever it takes to keep her clients on track – even if it means surprise ambushes at their homes, work or when out socializing.
Yes! I love surprise ambushes and group therapy sessions! Also, I love that this isn’t a competition; it’s just a push to get people to make healthier decisions. Warm fuzzies!
On paper, the contestants seem fairly interesting. We’ll see a former Playboy Playmate, and a former reality star in her own right, Jeana Keough, who was on The Real Housewives of Orange County.
Check out the preview below:
I love how the first male contestant we see says that Jackie looks mean and "might have bigger balls " than him. I’m inclined to agree.
Of course, the first female contestant we see says that she isn’t gay but Jackie is mighty fine. Give her two glasses of pinot after dieting for a few weeks and I’d bet Mandy would be all over Jackie’s buns of steel.
So, who’s with me in the love for all things flab to fab? I’m going to try to take the chubby challenge with them. If Jeana can do it, I sure as hell can.
