Jillian Michaels and Dr. Travis Stork of The Doctors announce exciting news
Jillian Michaels joined the cast of the hit show “The Doctors” this season, and she and fellow cast member Dr. Travis Stork made exciting personal announcements on the Sept. 27 episode of Rachel Ray.
“I’m engaged to get married. Thank you very much. I’m very excited,” said Stork, when prompted by Ray to reveal what had been going on in his personal life over the summer.
Stork’s fiancé is also a doctor.
“She’s not just a doctor. She’s a supermodel doctor,” said Michaels in response. “When I first met her, she’s like 5’10”; she could be on the cover of Elle Magazine. The hot girl.”
Stork said Michaels was correct with her assessment.
“She’s beautiful, she’s smart, but she’s an even better person, and that’s the truth,” he said. “It is true. I’m very lucky.”
As for Michaels, Ray asked her if she had a baby in her future.
“I don’t want to jinx anything. Things are looking positive and I’m hoping, it’s looking good, that maybe spring of 2012,” she said. “Hopefully, fingers crossed. Knock on wood. End of April, beginning of May. Things are progressing. “
“You’re going to adopt, of course?” asked Ray, jokingly looking at Michaels’ stomach.
“I’m not pregnant,” Michaels clarified. “The adoption process is going well.”
Both Stork and Michaels said working together on “The Doctors” has been a fun experience and Michaels’ relatives have begun asking her to consult Stork about various possible illnesses they could have.
Michaels has carved her spot out on “The Doctors” by being the controversial new voice. Recently, when a man admitted to a horrible addiction that was slowly killing him, she responded by saying, “Why don't you be a man and blow your brains out!"
Michaels has always been an outspoken personality, showing off her attitude on her hit show “The Biggest Loser” and with The Doctors she has retained that feisty attitude. She says she left “The Biggest Loser” because she was becoming complacent.
She has said the results on “Loser” had become unrealistic, with people losing large amounts of weight every week, which most people don’t have the resources to do. She said she feels like she’s reaching more people on a more realistic basis on “The Doctors.”
"Prime time is just not geared to inform the viewer," she said during a break in shooting last week. On "The Doctors," "we really dig in there and help people with the 'how to' of life transformation."
