Everyone deserves to get away with a little cheat on their diet every now and then – even Tanisha Thomas, who is appearing on this season of the VH1 hit show Celebrity Fit Club.
And the hot-headed Brooklyn diva thought she had gotten away with it, wolfing down a giant steak and spicy mac and cheese, until she was shocked back to skinny by a surprise telephone call!
In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com Tanisha tells her tale of dietary woe, “My boyfriend and I wanted a steak so we said let’s just try Mortons,” she says. “Our server was great, and the pastry chef came out to tell me they were a big fan.
“I ordered a salad, which I don’t like by the way, and didn’t eat it. Then they brought out the mac and cheese and the steak and it was delicious!”
But it seems the eyes and the ears of the food police are everywhere! “The marketing manager came over and said someone was on the phone for me, and I figured it was someone from their family,” Tanisha tells RadarOnline.com. “She put me on the phone and Harvey yelled ‘You’d better be eating some damn salad not some damn steak!’ I almost choked on my steak, I had steak sauce running down my face! I spit out my steak! It was instant horror!”
Harvey Walden is the tough as nails drill sergeant on Celebrity Fit Club that puts the celebrities through the wringer every week, and no-nonsense Harvey takes no prisoners. It turns out that Harvey knows one of the restaurant’s managers who let him know one of his Fit Clubbers had come in.
“It has been hard for me to keep the weight off since Celebrity Fit Club. I gained a couple of pounds but I’m back on track and I’m fighting to stay fit.
“During filming I wanted to wring Harvey’s neck, but I am so grateful for all he did for me!”
