Lesbian Fitness Guru Faces Felony Charges After Driving Incident

Posted on | March 30, 2017 | Comments Off on Lesbian Fitness Guru Faces Felony Charges After Driving Incident


Ten years ago, Jackie Warner was an L.A. celebrity, the star of Workout, a reality show on the Bravo cable TV network. For three seasons, the show featured Warner and her clients at her Sky Sport and Spa in Beverly Hills. A self-made millionaire, Warner is the author of the books This Is Why You’re Fat (And How to Get Thin Forever) and 10 Pounds in 10 Days: The Secret Celebrity Program for Losing Weight Fast.

Being a reality TV star, however, didn’t quite suit Warner’s temperament. The producers made Warner’s lesbian relationships a focus of the show, and she had three different girlfriends — Mimi Saraiva, Rebecca Cardon and Brianna Stockton — during the course of three seasons. And then there was the incident when Warner was caught on camera making negative comments about a client’s breast implants. As it turned out, the client was a “well-known fitness model and breast cancer survivor.” Warner says she “didn’t like doing the type of TV that I was doing which made me uncomfortable and uneasy,” so she left the Workout series and eventually sold her gym. She went into a downward spiral:

“To be honest, I felt a bit lost and started partying a lot. It felt like I was taking a few steps backward in life and I started making bad decisions.” . . .
Jackie realized she needed to accept responsibility for her actions and devise a plan to pull herself out of her misery. “I quit drinking for a year and I quit dating for a year,” she continues, adding that she prayed for guidance every morning and night and cut “almost everyone” out of her life including friends, business partners, managers, lawyers.

Two years ago, Warner was planning a comeback with a new book, but evidently that didn’t work out so well, and now there’s this news:

The former Bravo fitness star crashed her car into a pole in West Hollywood, CA Feb. 24, after allegedly “sleep driving.” She nearly ran over an LA County Sheriff’s Deputy when she allegedly threw her car in reverse and tried to leave the scene. . . .
The former star of Work Out went to lunch earlier in the day, drank one martini and took an Uber home, sources close to Jackie told TMZ. She then claims to have taken the sleep aid Ambien and says that the next thing she knew, she woke up in the hospital with no memory of the accident. According to TMZ, she wasn’t wearing pants — just underwear — when she was arrested around 5:45 pm. The former owner of Sky Sport and Spa in Beverly Hills was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon for nearly mowing down the deputy. Her blood alcohol level was measured at .08, exactly the CA legal limit, so she hasn’t been hit with DUI charges just yet.


You were driving without pants, with a .08 blood-alcohol content in the middle of the afternoon, you nearly killed a deputy and were taken into custody at gunpoint? Could be trouble, but don’t worry, the “Ambien defense” will save you. You’re a former reality-TV star and a lesbian. There’s no way a California court is going to convict you of a felony.
