EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Celebrity Fit Club's Tanisha Thomas Caught In The Act!

Tanisha, best known for her role on Season 2 of the Oxygen Network’s reality show The Bad Girl’s Club, reveals she suffered an injury while competing in boot camp competitions on the new season of Celebrity Fit Club, ultimately slowing down her progress. She wouldn’t reveal how much weight she lost during the show but did tell that the change was dramatic.  “When I came home let's just say I was no longer a plus-sized female,” she said. “My boyfriend walked passed me at the airport and didn’t even recognize me. I'm thinking back and I'm getting upset that I gained the weight back”

Mastering the boot camp wasn’t the hardest part of the show for Tanisha. It was getting used to the new diet.

“Oh, it was salad and dry stuff, psyllium husks mixed in with cereal...and soup! I was like, soup makes me angry!’ Why eat soup when I could have a burger or a slice of pizza!”

The new season, which premiered on Feb. 10, features one of the best casts yet including Nicole Eggert, Sebastian Bach, Bobby Brown, Kevin Federline and his other ex, Shar Jackson.

Tanisha says she hit it off with Kevin Federline from the beginning.

“Kevin reminds me of my younger brother who I am really close to,” she told “He just seemed like he was the realest person there to me. Real genuine and sweet. I could really talk to him about things and he was so understanding and so down to earth. Me and Kevin really formed a friendship.”

When it comes to those rumors that Federline gained his weight in order to get on a weight loss show, Tanisha says no way.

“Who wants to gain weight on purpose?” She balked. “This is a guy who said he drank 12 cans of sodas a day. Of course you’re going to look like a pregnant man when you drink 12 cans of soda a day.”

Tanisha said she definitely got to put some of her Bad Girls Club attitude to good use.  “Me and Sebastian definitely got into it because he was rude and arrogant and disrespectful,” she said. “I call things how I see it. That’s what makes me a bad girl. I’m just real with it! Sebastian was real and disrespectful at time and I felt he needed to be put back in line.”
