Anna Kournikova got fired . . . from something . . . definitely not her job of looking amazing in spandex

Anna Kournikova has a tremendous backside

Anna Kournikova will not be back as a trainer next year on The Biggest Loser. In other news, Anna Kournikova is one of the trainers on The Biggest Loser. I had no idea. How does she find the time? Isn’t she way too busy not winning anything at all ever? From The Hollywood Reporter:

Kournikova was hired by NBC to host and act as trainer on season 12 of the reality weight loss series, following Jillian Michael’s exit. It seemed like a great idea at the time: she’s attractive, camera friendly and a major athlete. But staffers say they clashed with her, and some of the contestants found her a bit brash. Whereas Michaels was soothing, encouraging and even uplifting, Kournikova did not sympathize with her overweight contestants, often telling them about her own tough upbringing when they complained about training being hard.

A source on the show actually called Kournikova “a nightmare.” She would definitely not have been mistaken for a life coach.

Shocking news you won’t see anywhere else: Hot Russian chick is an asshole. Come on, NBC. We’ve all been to strip clubs, so we’ve all had to deal with that shitty “I know I’m hotter than anyone you’ve ever been with” attitude. Did you guys really think that Anna Kournikova would be a nurturing soul? That’s just a bad job of scouting if you ask me. Now if the empty suits who run NBC insist on working with Anna, I recommend that they wait 10 years. By 2021 AK’s looks will be gone (along with her money and green card), so she’ll be as nice as every other over-the-hill ex-stripper that still needs to feed a habit.
