Bravo gives Jackie Warner a new series, Thintervention, despite controversial Work Out
Work Out star Jackie Warner is getting a new reality series on Bravo, which may be a surprise considering how reviled Jackie was when her show ended well over a year ago.
During the series’ contrived and set-up final season, Jackie made off-camera comments about a breast cancer survivor’s fake breasts, and as part of her extreme, annoying self-absorption, blamed the editing after firing the trainer who accused her of making those remarks. That caused a sponsor to drop its support of the show.
The new series is Thintervention—yes, that’s it’s real name, not Andy Cohen screwing with us—“will track the stories of people struggling with ongoing weight issues” as Jackie “works with them in their real lives surrounded by the every day distractions and stresses of family and work,” according to a Bravo press release. “Each episode of the one hour series will feature a grueling workout with Warner pushing her clients to their emotional and physical limits, a therapy session to get to the root of their weight issues, and a life lesson in nutrition such as grocery shopping or surprise raids of their home kitchens.”
The episodes won’t be one-offs, though, since the announcement says “[t]hroughout the course of the series, viewers will follow the stories of these individuals, and in the end will see who survived Jackie’s ‘Thintervention.’”
