DISCUSSING JILLIAN, PHOTOSHOPPING OUT WOMEN AND E-HOARDING
Shoshana told the staffers about her secret e-hoarding. She thought her email was broken but Pete took a look at her email and it was actually not working because she had 22,000 emails in her inbox! Pete explained why (I didn’t get it.) The most Pete had ever seen in an Entourage email account was 11,000, he was impressed at her hoarding capabilities! Shoshana said she doesn’t delete any of her emails. She said she likes to go back and look at them because it’s like looking back at a part of her life that she would have forgotten about without the emails. Everyone on the staff told her she’s an e-hoarder because that’s exactly what hoarders say. Jeannie said she can’t delete her old voicemails from her daughter from when she was little. Her voicemail inbox keeps filling up but she doesn’t want to delete the sound of her daughter’s little voice! She asked Pete if there was a way to move them off her phone to save them and he said there was.
NEW SCRABBLE WORDS, BIG KIDS IN STROLLERS, REGRETTING BABY NAMES
Rosie mentioned an article about parents regretting the names they selected for their children and asked the staff members (with kids) if they ever regretted the names they chose. Pete wished, looking back now, that he chose Josephine for his daughter Irene because he thinks it fits better with the other two girls names - Sophie and Eleanor. Jeannie said her husband chose the boy names and she chose the girl names. She said her kids became their names and now she can't see them as anything else. Pete sometimes wishes kids could choose their own names! Pete said he wanted to name them one, two and three - Prima, Seconda, and Tertiary, and when they turned of age they could label themselves! Jeannie said that was the stupidest thing she ever heard.
Rosie and Sharon love to go to the restaurant RED together when they're in Miami. Sharon and Rosie are huge fans of Miami.
Sharon said a play she stars in entitled Round-Heeled Woman is going to London in October! Round-Heeled Woman is about a woman who puts an ad in the New York Review of Books called a "Round-Heeled Woman" which is a woman of promiscuity. In the ad she says, "Before I turn 67 next March, I would like to have lots of sex with many men." She got 63 responses! It's based on a book A Round-Heeled Woman: My Late-Life Adventures in Sex and Romance and Sharon bought the rights to it and made it into a play. It's based on a true story and the author said it never occurred to her that anyone would ever respond. But she got so many responses she couldn't even fit them all in one book. Rosie said it's a provocative play that opens with Sharon playing the lead role pleasuring herself on the phone!
Rosie showered Glessy with her love and thanked her for calling in. Pete, who seems like a huge fan, shouted out, "I love you!" before she hung up. It was very sweet.
THE TOY GAME
ROSIE AND JEANNIE TIED FOR FIRST PLACE!!!!!!!
PART TWO OF AN INTERVIEW WITH JILLIAN MICHAELS AND HER MOM!
Jillian said when someone does something like Gastric Bypass, they're bypassing the reasons why they're heavy in the first place while doing extraordinary damage to your body in the process. Jillian said an assistant of hers had gastric bypass but she's still heavy and one day she brought McDonald's in to eat and Jillian told her she didn't want her eating poison in front of her. About two weeks later she came to her and told her, "I'm ready, will you help me?" She was finally ready to lose weight the right way.
Rosie took several calls. One caller was so excited that her two favorite celebrities were colliding in one show! She told them that she had a dream about Jillian forcing her to run one night and the next day she got out and ran. Now it's a year and a half later and she's lost 95 pounds and has finished two half marathons! Jillian said in the dream, Jillian represented to her all the parts in her she's not yet aware of and that carried her through 90 pounds of weight loss. The one tragedy in the story is thinking Jillian saved her life. Jillian said what the caller doesn't realize is that she saved her own life and she was always strong enough to do it herself. Rosie said it's true for many celebrities and people have come up to her before and told her she saved their lives through sharing the stories of her life. Jillian's mom, not wanting to discount Jillian's and Rosie's participation in these life transformations, said people still need a role model to inspire them. She said people need to connect with others in some kind of way and feel "if they could do it, I could do it" so Rosie and Jillian shouldn't discount their own role in other people's success.
During the break Jillian's mom asked Jeannie if she's ever connected or felt close to a therapist and that question alone brought Jeannie to tears. Jeannie said she's never felt close to a therapist and has never really had the time to dedicate to going to therapy consistently. Jillian's mom recommended Jeannie look for candidates training to get their PhD. who must take on 3 training cases. She said apply to a psychoanalyst institute for training analysis.
Jillian said we could look at the science of weight loss but if you're terrified of the end result it's not going to help! Jillian said said you need to look at what happens to you when you take the weight off. She listed an example of a man she's training who when he lost weight, his mother, who also had a weight problem, would withdraw and fall into a depression. Jillian said losing weight can be very complicated.
Rosie then asked Jillian about her leaving The Biggest Loser. Jillian said she loved her time on The Biggest Loser but in Primetime it's all about entertainment and there's not enough time to provide information. She said in daytime she can give information and support to the audience. Jillian will be one of the regulars on The Doctors. She said she'll be in the 5th chair, on a regular basis, co-hosting the show! She said she's coming on to deal with preventative measures and empowering support for the viewers. She wants to help motivate and support the viewers through a transformation.
Rosie recommended a documentary entitled Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. Rosie said it's really interesting and fascinating and recommended it to Jillian and the audience at home. They discussed processed foods and how the entire food system is setting us up to fail. She said it's difficult to blame the majority of the country for being overweight when it's too expensive for most to eat healthfully. Jillian talked about how we should eat organics because of the pesticides we put on our fruit and vegetables. She said she gives tips on how to get organic food at a more affordable price but she said what you cannot afford to get is CANCER.
Jillian and Rosie briefly discussed the documentary Gasland and how the personal is political. Jillian said you have to give people information but you also have to give them solutions too or they begin to shut you out and that's what she's personally going to do on her new show.
Rosie then let James talk to Jillian for a little while because he's a HUGE fan. He said a lot of people tell him he's in shape and that he has a lot of muscles but as much as people tell him he looks good he's never happy with how he looks. Jillian said he needs to look back and see where else in his life has he felt not good enough. And how far back has he felt not good enough. She said identifying that will help him greatly because he's playing that thought in a loop in his head.
Jillian's mom and Rosie talked about psychoanalysis and how it helps one deal with the issues of why we overeat. Jillian said she had a client once tell her it felt like they were a tree that was being pulled out, their roots were going to be exposed and their tree was going to die. Her mom told her to tell the client that if they don't tend to the roots, they are going to die. Rosie found this comparison to trees so interesting because the very first poem she ever wrote in 8th grade was....
