They may be the most talked about new couple in the country, but a shocking secret lies at the heart of the Biggest Loser’s red-carpet romance.
Heartbroken and betrayed, the former partner of Biggest Loser trainer Steve “The Commando” Willis has finally broken her silence, confirming that her de facto husband and father of her two children has been having an affair with his co-star Michelle Bridges.
While the celebrity trainers deny they’ve begun a relationship, their public displays of affection in recent weeks have now pushed Froso, who has requested we don’t publish her surname, to speak out about her former partner’s betrayal. With the pair openly flirting on set, at the airport and on the red carpet last week, she has revealed the truth about their secret love, telling Woman’s Day, “Steve and Michelle’s affair was a shock to everyone.”
Froso first learned of the affair when Steve failed to come home after The Biggest Loser wrap party on March 19. Blindsided by the discovery, the mother of the former couple’s two children – Ella, 5, and Jack, 19 months – is understandably distraught. Convinced her relationship was solid, Froso had, until just weeks ago, been planning a future with the man she loved.
“Froso and Steve had their whole year planned out,” a close friend tells Woman’s Day. “They had planned a holiday and they had just purchased their dream family home. This was completely out of the blue and it’s shattered her.”
