RESTON, VA - MARCH 23: Jillian Michaels speaks during the 2013 Get Radical Women's Conference at Hyatt Regency Reston on March 23, 2013 in Reston, Virginia.
Jillian Michaels
was sad to say goodbye to “The Biggest Loser” for the second time.

That said, she tells “People” that she’s had some “fundamental differences” with the producers of the NBC reality staple for some time now.

“In the beginning of the show it was tough love. You saw the tough love,” she said.

But in recent seasons, Michaels felt that producers should her being mean without the “bonds that I build with my clients… [M]illions of people have this warped negative perception of me.”

She was one of the first people to publicly speak out about the controversy at the end of last season, after winner Rachel Frederickson was accused of losing an unhealthy amount of weight.

Michaels told “People” that for her next projects, she needs “to be able to have an impact on the outcome of what I do.”

The show must go on, however, and "Biggest Loser" will return on a new night, Thursdays at 8pm, beginning September 11.
