Alison Sweeney: “My Kids Are So Happy Now”


The Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney coves the October 2014 issue of FITNESS and opens up about leaving Days of Our Lives after 21 years, Jillian Michaels‘ departure from The Biggest Loser, and family life with husband Dave and their two kids: son Benjamin, 9, and daughter Megan, 5.

On life after Days of Our Lives: “The show will always have a place in my heart, but I wanted to have more time with my family. My kids are so happy now, and I’m no longer thinking about nine other things while I’m with them. Everyone in my life has commented on how much more relaxed and at ease I am.”

On Jillian Michaels’ departure from The Biggest Loser: “As a friend, I could relate to [Jillian] leaving. She made the decision that was best for her and her family, and I admire her for being true to herself. As a co-worker, I’m sad because I miss her, but new people bring new dynamics, which is what makes a good show. And our new trainers are awesome.”

On fit activities she does with her family: “We bike, hike, swim, walk the dogs and play catch or kick the soccer ball around the yard. My parents introduced my brothers and me to so many fun things — skiing, hiking, waterskiing. It’s a wonderful memory, and it’s something my husband, Dave, and I want to share with our kids. We want them to be brought up with the spirit of being game for anything.”

On the one treat she has to have, no matter what: “Red wine. I love it so much my husband actually built me a custom wine tap in our house. Best gift ever. He’s not much of a wine drinker so I was always ruining a bottle for one glass—or I felt pressured to drink more so it wouldn’t go to waste. Now I can have just a glass, and the argon gas in the tank seals it back up, so one bottle can last for weeks.”

Kerry Washington ‘Couldn’t Turn Down’ the Chance to Create a Scandal Clothing Line

09/15/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

It’s almost Scandal-ous (sorry) how much we’ve been looking forward to the Scandal collection at The Limited, especially because it was designed by Olivia Pope herself, Kerry Washington, with the show’s costume designer Lyn Paolo (nominated for an Emmy this year). So when we were offered a chance to check out some exclusive sketches and chat with Washington and Paolo about the soon-to-launch line, what could we say but “It’s been handled?”

When working with Washington and Elliot Staples (Senior VP of Design at The Limited) to design the “aspirational, sophisticated and feminine” collection, Paolo says, she was delighted by how easy the process was. “We really didn’t have any challenges with this collection! The whole adventure has been fun, exciting and honestly just a joy,” she says. “The woman who will wear this collection is polished and sophisticated — a professional with an accomplished sense of style.”

Washington echoed the sentiment, saying, “I truly admire Lyn and love collaborating with her to create Olivia Pope’s looks each week. Being able to work with her on a project that brings Olivia’s style and confidence to Gladiators everywhere was something I couldn’t turn down.” That’s not to say it was totally seamless. “The hardest part was how busy Lyn, Elliot and I are. Our schedules, combined with our geography, made for an exciting collaborative process. With the help of technology and overnight deliveries, we were able to make it happen!”

So Staples led the team to create a selection of tailored, elegant pieces that echo the style that’s made Olivia Pope such a runaway fashion icon. “We wanted to create a line the professional woman would incorporate into her wardrobe and that fans of the show would be excited to wear,” he said. That includes wide-legged trousers, ladylike blouses and even a cape — though Paolo says she couldn’t possibly pick a favorite piece.

Washington, tellingly, loves the coats, though she was excited to bring to the whole collection the sense of timelessness she sees in her character’s clothing. “Olivia is too busy to follow trends and looks for key pieces to incorporate into her wardrobe — look at her amazing outerwear collection!” she says. “It’s important to have a statement coat that carries across seasons.”

Ultimately, they can’t wait to see the collection on everyday Olivia Popes on the street. “Our inspiration came from the fans, our amazing Gladiators, who were asking for a way to look like [the character],” Paolo says. “I know I will run over to whomever I see in the collection and say hi … and also thank them for supporting us! We are all so excited and hope that the line will allow our Gladiators to enjoy yet another aspect of the amazing show that Shonda Rhimes has created.”

The collection will be in Limited stores and online on Sept. 23. Are you excited to shop it? See any favorite pieces? Share your thoughts in the comments!

Paul Walker’s Daughter Posts Tribute Photo


In a touching tribute, Paul Walker‘s daughter Meadow shared a shot of her late father via Instagram.

“Happy birthday, I love you,” the teen, 15, captioned the precious pic on what would have been her father’s 41st birthday.

The actor, who died in a car crash last November, was in the midst of filming the 7th instalment of The Fast and Furious franchise when he died. His younger brothers, Cody and Caleb, filled in for him as body doubles for the remaining scenes.

Cody also took to social media and posted a birthday tribute to his late brother.

“This day is a bittersweet one,” Cody captioned the image via Facebook.

“Today I’m reminded of how much I miss you,” he added. “But at the same time, this day is also a reminder of how many years of memories, adventures, lessons and love I was lucky enough to share with you. Today is a celebration of all those years.”

The Fast & Furious 7 will hit theaters next April.
