QUOTE OF THE DAY

"I found out Jillian [Michaels] was leaving, I went after it because it was the perfect opportunity. It was about health, fitness and diet, and I could relate to them being scrutinized for how they look: too this, too that, not good enough." -- Former pro tennis player Anna Kournikova, a personal trainer on the new season of NBC's "The Biggest Loser."
