Thanks to the thousands of loyal viewers and former contestants who have supported me during this time. These allegations are not only false but fly in the face of my lifelong devotion to heath and fitness. As everyone knows, my training approach has always put safety and well-being first. I love all of you!
The allegations made in today's "New York Post" are absolutely false and are in direct conflict with my lifelong devotion to health and fitness. Safety is paramount in my training regimen and, while demanding, my approach has always focused on the overall well-being of contestants as they lose significant weight and educate themselves, for the first time, on living a healthy lifestyle.
