Controversy trailed season 13 of NBC’s reality competition “The Biggest Loser.” The conversation centered on winner Rachel Frederickson and the notion that perhaps she lost too much weight, sending a negative message towards young women. The methods that Frederickson used to shed the 155 pounds were also questioned.

Jillian Michaels did not work with Frederickson and thus has not commented on the stunning transformation. But the portrayal of Michaels and her future involvement with the show have also been topics of conversation.

“I don’t know yet,” Michaels said on “Ralphie Tonight,” in an interview that aired Monday night. Michaels had called in last week to promote her “Maximize Your Life” tour stop at the Beacon Theatre in New York. “In life there’s good and bad in everything and everyone. But ultimately at the end of the day I will always be grateful to that show because it has afforded me to connect on such an intimate level with so many people.”

Michaels also mentioned that her tour would not be possible without “Biggest Loser” but seemed to reference it in past tense.

“I’m thrilled to have been a part of it,” she continued. “You know I can’t say what the future holds right now. But as soon as there is news I will shout it from the mountaintops.”

There are two dates left on the “Maximize Your Life” tour. Michaels also recently wrapped up a cover shoot for Shape Magazine. To get herself in top shape for the shoot, the trainer partook in a regimen that shunned sugar and alcohol.

“I really enjoy working with (Shape),” she said. “They’re a great magazine and a really good partner to work with and I think we share the same kind of message of empowerment for women.”

It is a message that Michaels shared to audiences across the country on her tour; one she will surely continue to stump behind. But as to whether the trainer will be promoting that message on TV: stay tuned.

Neon Trees lead singer Tyler Glenn was not happy. There were personal issues. There were other points of contempt with the band, maybe not with any of its members but certainly with the rigors of a touring musician on a major record label.

Glenn began to identify the problems and how to resolve them, or at least how he did not want situations to play out moving forward.

“I started writing these songs in therapy,” Glenn told “Ralphie Tonight” via telephone about the band’s third studio album, Pop Psychology. The LP was released last month. “I also felt like, if I was going to put this record out, I didn’t want to do another cycle of press where I was kind of glazing over some of the themes.”

Struggles with fame and personal relationships are two of the topics that Glenn tackles on Neon Trees’ latest effort. So in March, the lead singer came out as gay in Rolling Stone magazine.

“For me, it’s fun to be able to talk about some of that personal stuff because I think it adds a weight and a humanity to it,” he said. “Where people who enjoy the band now have another context to listen to the record in.”

Glenn does not feel like he is a new person, nor does he believe this changes the band – known for its up-tempo sing-a-longs “Animal” and “Everybody Talks.”

“At the heart of it, the record is just a fun, energetic celebration at the same time,” Glenn explained. “I think it serves dual purposes and I’m proud of it.”

If you are looking for any change in the band, return to the aforementioned context and “Everybody Talks.”

“I say, ‘And that was when I kissed her’ and I kind of stop and say, ‘It was a her at the time,’” he reveals. “Because it was. I was seeing a girl at the time. But to be able to sing these songs, there’s kind of more of an anthemic quality to them.”

Glenn will be leading those sing-a-longs, of tracks old and new, on the band’s forthcoming summer headlining tour. The trek kicks off Monday in Nashville and ends June 13 in Washington D.C. The second to last date is on June 12 in Philadelphia. The concert will be held at the Piazza at Schmidt’s, an outdoor venue near Festival Pier.

“It’s really cool to be able to say what I’ve always said which is, ‘Self acceptance is important and you should be okay with the flaws that you have.’”
