Jillian Michaels Denies That She Used To Spit On People At Restaurants

January 7, 2022 / Posted by:

Jillian Michaels may have a rep as a proud, unapologetic, fat-shaming asshole, but she’s spitting back (heh) at Page Six’s story that she used to spit on people at restaurants. The drama started when Jillian’s ex from the nineties, fitness trainer Jackie Warner, went on the Hot Takes & Deep Dives with Jess Rothschild podcast to reminisce about Jillian’s anger issues. Jackie claims Jillian used to get thrown out of nice restaurants for screaming, cursing, and spitting on people. Spitting? That’s about as gross and disrespectful as you can get. See: Bob Ewell vs. Atticus Finch.

53-year-old Jackie (whom you may remember from her starring role on Bravo’s Work Out or her 2017 Ambien DUI arrest) says she and Jillian dated in the nineties when Jackie was in her late twenties and Jillian was 21. Jackie says Jillian is a really shady person who takes after her father, whom Jackie describes as “a really not morally, not good ambulance chaser.” Jackie mentions Jillian’s spitting tendencies twice during the podcast. The first time she brings it up while explaining that a young Jillian used to have a stealing problem at work:

Every bar she’s ever worked at as a bartender, she’d spit, she would steal thousands of dollars – thousands! She’d come home and put down a roll of hundred dollar bills she stole from every single bar.

The second time was when she was talking about Jillian’s explosive behavior:

We’d get thrown out of nice restaurants, screaming, loud, cursing, and I couldn’t take it. I just was not the same. I mean, she used to spit on people. Yeah. She used to spit on people. My mom and I were just talking about it a few days ago.

Here’s the Jillian part of the podcast. The spitting stories are at 14:26 and 16:10:

Page Six reported on the spitting story, and wrote, “A rep for Michaels did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.” Well, Jillian, 47, took to her Instagram to address the allegations. She tagged @pagesix in the video, and denied everything:

I’m taking a moment to address you, Page Six, about the fact that you just printed complete lies about me, that I spit on people in restaurants. But you get away with it, because you claim “an ex of mine” claims it.And then you lied, though, and you claimed that you reached out to my people for comment, which is completely untrue, because the comment would have been that your article is untrue. And I’m pretty that if I had spit on many people in restaurants, or even one person, for that matter, it would have already made your paper.

Um, I’m actually not sure about that. Because Jillian wasn’t famous in her (alleged) spitting days. So even if a nobody bartender/personal trainer hocked a loogie at me while dining at an LA Denny’s in 1995, I probably wouldn’t make the connection watching The Biggest Loser ten years later. Jillian continues, insisting that nobody from Page Six ever reached out to her reps and that the reason she’s so upset is because she has two kids, ages 9 and 11:

And yes, my kids know that I don’t spit on people in restaurants, but it certainly isn’t fun for them if they have to go to school and one of their friends says, “I heard your mom spits on people in restaurants.”

Hmmm, I actually think it’s a fascinating icebreaker, but to each their own. Jillian ends her rant by telling Page Six to “do better.” Here’s the video:

Page Six has yet to publicly respond to Jillian’s claims about their claim that they reached out to her about Jackie’s claims (oh no, I’ve gone cross-eyed), but they better apologize soon! You don’t wanna get on a chronic spitter’s bad side, especially during a pandemic.
