    On Sundays, behind the doors of The Biggest Loser ranch and unseen by almost 9.5 million viewers, several contestants of the hit reality television show meet in Moses Kinikini’s bedroom to partake of the sacrament and share their testimonies. Six of the 22 contestants on NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” this season are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, namely Moses Kinikini, Kaylee Kinikini, Rulon Gardner, Justin Pope, Sarah Nitta and Denise Hill. “We are always here at the ranch,” said Moses Kinikini, who graduated from BYU in marketing. “We don’t have an opportunity to attend church...

    LOS ANGELES – Jillian Michaels has been sued for alleged false advertising by a woman who claims she was duped into buying a diet supplement endorsed by the celebrity trainer. Christie Christensen of Lake Elsinore, Calif., is seeking class-action status for the case she filed Tuesday in Los Angeles. Michaels is a hard-charging, no-nonsense trainer best-known as one of the stars of NBC's hit reality show, "The Biggest Loser." Christensen's lawsuit claims she bought a product called "Jillian Michaels Maximum Strength Calorie Control" last month and that it has failed to lessen her appetite or cause her to lose weight...

    "Saudi Arabia has rejected Pakistan's nominated diplomat as his name translates into 'Biggest Dick' in Arabic. Akbar Zib, a high profile Pakistani diplomat was nominated for the Saudi post but after some hand-wringing the country had to reject him due to the unfortunate loss in translation. The diplomatic wrangle appears to bring to life the scene in Monty Python's Life of Brian where a Roman consort called Biggus Dickus is routinely mocked."

    Controversial filmmaker and author Michael Moore was recently asked to be on the next season of NBC’s The Biggest Loser series. Moore immediately accepted, NBC sent him contracts to lock in his appearance, and Moore signed and returned them by express mail the very next day. However, Moore, who claims he was previously unfamiliar with the show’s concept, has dispatched his legal team to negotiate his release from the contracts with NBC. Moore’s sources revealed to him months ago his nomination for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. Being positive he would win the famous award, Moore had already planned to...

    UPDATED to include Dane Patterson's apology. A followup to my Thursday story about the fabricated account of "Biggest Loser" eliminee Dane Patterson running a marathon, when in fact he only ran 23 miles: The producers of "The Biggest Loser" are taking full responsibility for the misrepresentation. Here's the apology put out late Thursday night by Reveille, the company behind "TBL": "As the Executive Producers of 'The Biggest Loser' we would like to make an official apology and set the record straight with regards to the claim in last night's episode that Dane completed a marathon in Arizona.

    ABC News' Nitya Venkataraman and Nancy Flores report: While his 2008 rivals in Washington, D.C. spent the morning in congressional panels debating the future of US involvement in Iraq, GOP Presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul charged the U.S. has "dug a hole for [itself]" in Iraq, and simultaneously defended his anti-war place in the Republican party and jabbed the current administration saying, "you don't have to be a war monger to be a conservative." At a policy forum at Johns Hopkins University in Washington, D.C., Paul described Iraq as a "preemptive war" saying it was a "planned invasion and occupation"...

    Former Vice President Al Gore is acting in a very "Nixonian" way, a top political expert says. Appearing Thursday night on CNN's "Glenn Beck" show, savvy Republican political pro Roger Stone told guest host Michael Smerconish that Gore carefully parses his words when he ducks the question about running for the presidency. "He's preserving his political options: 'I'm not planning to run; I have no plans to run; it is highly unlikely that I would run,'" Stone said. "Nowhere does he say, 'if nominated I won't run; if elected I won't serve.' And I don't think he's going to say...

    As a news junkie, over the years I have seen a lot of political campaigns. Some were brilliant, some pathetic, some nasty as all get out. But I have never seen anything like this: A major party candidate trying to get elected by mostly talking about how much weight he has lost. That's right -- current California Lieutenant Governor Cruz Bustamante, a Democrat, who is running against liberal Republican high-tech billionaire Steve Poizner for the state Insurance Commissioner post, is battling a multimedia blitz portraying him as in the pocket of the insurance industry by talking about his 70-pound weight...

    SAN DIEGO (AP) - Hundreds of people were turned away Thursday from an open casting call for NBC's hit weight-loss show "The Biggest Loser" because the venue couldn't accommodate the immense crowd. "Today's San Diego casting call for 'The Biggest Loser' had to be canceled due to the overwhelming response from potential candidates for the show," NBC publicist Joanne Parks said. Approximately 1,500 people waited on the street to enter restaurant Dave & Buster's for the audition, police spokesman Dave Cohen said. Arguments broke out, but no one was arrested, he said. Messages left for the restaurant's management Thursday were...

Sept. 11, 2001 might have been just another sunny day" [So the real question that requires answering is this: Why did this legacy-obsessed president miss a golden opportunity to secure his legacy for all time by wiping out terrorism, then in its incipient stage and stoppable?
