Apparently Jill CAN give a convincing sales pitch if she believes in a product.


Or when the endorsements checks are being written straight to her and not through TBL ;)

I can only hope that one day Jillian will shill for Jägermeister.

Still, there's little wrong with getting paid, even if the in-show product placements are just painful to watch.

Signing off. This is CrabShaman for Laffy Taffy!

Yes, I saw that also (her new gigs).

I've watched the Doctors twice (when she was on it) and I really, really dislike Dr. Phil (Dr. um Shill).
Jillian has mentioned previously in tweets how much she loooooovvves Dr. Phil and his son (the one who produces the Doctors).

Frankly, I'm disappointed.

Interesting. I've seen once in a while on both shows, though I no longer see either of them much.
Guess that means that Dr. Phil isn't moving to OWN. I'd thought he might since they're showing his old shows.

This article is mostly about her new TV gigs, but at the end, it mentions that she is in the process of adopting a baby from Africa:

Jillian's New Gigs

I don't watch either show but I'm pleased to hear about the baby news. Good for her.

What's up with the message on Jillian's FB account today? She says she's ashamed of the FB page because haters like it or something. I don't know what prompted that. Anyone?

She's referring to folks being nasty in response to a photo of Rosie O'Donnell JM put up (she was on Rosie Radio yesterday). Lots of "fat ass" comments.

(on Rosie Radio, Rosie commented about that photo, how of all the photos JM could have picked she picked THAT one--Rosie talked a lot about her weight issues, naturally).

I didn't see the comments Jillian was referring to but I did see the original post. The picture she posted was this one of Rosie from her role in Exit to Eden.

Here's a clip of Jillian's interview with Sam and Stephanie at the finale.
She talks about what she'll be doing, and the adoption.

I'll have you know that you personally burned out my left eye with that picture and I have a full blown case of PTSD.

I both love and hate Dr. Phil at the same time. All she can do is screw up her career while working for that quack. Remember that Dr. Phil really isn't a doctor. He had his license pulled after he had an unfortunate encounter with a 17 year old patient.

And you forgot one more thing....they both think they know what they are doing. Maybe Jillian can help Phil diagnose the "patients" and Phil can help the "patients" lose weight. I wonder if Jillian is signing on to the 17 day diet plan that Phil was trying to sell. I'm surprised that Phil even wants to do anything with fat people as he has a dislike for overweight people.

Which is amusing considering he's reportedly near the top of the "overweight" BMI range--just shy of obese. And he's not a muscle-bound athlete, by a long-shot.

The fat bastard is in denial. Have you noticed on his show that he tends to throw up this picture of him in his high school football uniform from time to time?
Jillian is making a mistake hooking up with him. She's out of her league on the Doctors and she'll be in a swamp with Phil.

I haven't seen the picture, but I imagine that in his head, that how he still looks now.

The Doctors might need a name-change to The Doctors and Jillian, Who is Not a Doctor. ;)

Guys, Dr. Phil isn't the topic here, it's Jillian. Please keep the the thread Jillian-centered. Thanks.

I guess she'll be a regular on the Doctors on Mondays episodes. Its supposed to be called Mondays with Jillian.

Just an FYI guys... I'm not going to close this thread, but unless it specifically has to do with Jillian on TBL, it's time to put it into retirement (since she's not on the show anymore). Thanks.

She is sure getting a lot of air time between the Doctors and Dr Phil. She's on the Doctors every day and makes guest appearances on the Dr. Phil show.

I don't think she should be on the Doctors. She doesn't know enough to share the stage with them. And the "counseling" she does seems more and more unprofessional to me. I have always thought she was superhot, but toward the end of her time on BL her training shtick was wearing thin.

Does anyone miss her on BL? I really don't! But you could easily see her taking Anna's place next season...

In a way, perhaps her ABSENCE is. There's a lot of compare/contrast inevitable ("how would Jillian have done this"), but also its interesting to see how her existence is removed from clips and discussions of show past. Which is relevant I think, because the show markets itself as a continuity, a family, and an ongoing concern, via return visits, inspirational wall posters and displays in the gym, "Where Are They Now" specials, etc. Which are now all missing any image or mention of the petite, loud brunette in the black (or occasionally red) shirt.

Good question... I don't think BL has made an official comment, but apparently viewership is down 30% since she left the show. I think a lot of people like Dolvett and all, and Bob will always have his fan club, but I don't think it would exactly hurt ratings to bring Jillian back.
