Jillian Michaels and her ridiculous footwear...

So today, I happened to catch The Doctors.  One of the segments was about some kind of exercise that was based on Cirque de Soleil or whatever it's called.  They had these really lean women climbing up and down sashes.  It looked pretty cool, actually.  The women reminded me of spiders coasting up and down silk.

Anyway, out comes Jillian Michaels with the rest of the doctors, minus the plastic surgeon, Dr. Drew Ordon, and the psychologist. Dr. Wendy Walsh.  Dr. Travis Stork has an impressive turn on the sashes, easily climbing all the way to the top and coming down.  Then the pediatrician, Dr. Jim Sears, tries his hand at an easy exercise.

It's at this point that I notice Jillian Michaels standing next to Dr. Lisa Masterson.  Both women have on ridiculous high heels, but Jillian's shoes are particularly stupid.  Not only are they about six inches tall, but they are on thick platforms.  I know Jillian is short and maybe she wants to appear taller, but it seems really hypocritical for a health show to be showing these women in footwear that can't be good for their feet.  And Jillian, being a personal trainer, should be wearing athletic shoes anyway.  She's a role model, right?  So she should be modeling the right clothes and shoes to inspire people to exercise.  Ridiculous platform shoes with extremely high heels don't exactly do that.  No one can exercise in those.

Just had to get that off my chest.  In all fairness, of course, I find that show mostly annoying anyway, especially since Jillian joined the cast.  But Jillian doesn't irritate me as much as the sexpot psychologist, Wendy Walsh, does.
