Celebrity To Host ‘american Idol’ Finalists At Sea

Matching: Both Jillian and Heidi wore dark hats and shades in the early Malibu sun

The 39-year-old star looked as if she had been horse riding but there was no stallion or mare in sight as she and the family strolled around the farmers market in busy Malibu. Although Jillian’s partner, Heidi Rhoades, is still nursing a foot injury, she is obviously keeping up with her better half. Good times: Celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels and her partner Heidi Rhoades looked happy with life as they strolled in Malibu Sunday with son, Phoenix Thirst quenching: Jillian gave three-year-old Lukensia a tasty drink while a friend of the family held her hand The 32-year-old showed her toned legs in a pair of cut offs, while her arms looked as strong as Jillians in her lavender tank top. The partners, both of whom wore black hats and glasses to shade their faces from the morning sun, were with their two children. While three-year-old Lukensia walked, her one-year-old brother, Phoenix, rode in a push car. Don’t cry! Jillian seems to be comforting Phoenix as pulls his ears and seems upset Why walk when you can drive?! At 14-months-old, Phoenix is completely capable of walking, but he seems to be in training for the Los Angeles car life Lucky lad: Phoenix is pushed and carried by his mothers Michaels earlier this year had finished 14 seasons with the hit reality show The Biggest Loser, where she is famous for taking heavy and out of shape contestants and whipping them into shape. It was last year when Jillian and Heidi adopted Lukensia from an orphanage in Haiti. Heidi gave birth to Phoneix in the same month. While on sabbatical from her show, Jillian has been spending plenty of time with her family and promoting her fitness videos.

A great way to take all the stress out of things is with a cruise, and if you have yet to book up, then you should do today. Christmas on a Cruise ship is a wonderful place to be because it is like one big happy family at that time of year, and you dont even have to prepare the food or clean the dishes. One such company you should consider is Celebrity Cruises. We say this because we already know the Celebrity Cruises Christmas 2013 itineraries, but they have only just announced the entertainment, which is said to be both star-studded musical performances, along with a gaming experience that is revolutionary. First there is Finalists at Sea, which is a series of concerts direct from Las Vegas. There will be two artists on each selected ship, these include former X-Factor contestant Bo Bice, TV hostess Kimberly Caldwell, Melinda Doolittle, Matt Giraud, Mikalah Gordon, Blake Lewis and Elliot Yamin. They will not be the only form of entertainment on certain Celebrity Cruises Christmas 2013 sailings, as you will also have the opportunity to play on the new Xbox One. We already know the cruise ship company has a deal with Microsoft to help provide entertainment on their ships, so it was obvious they would be getting the next-gen console as well.
