Former "American Idol" Winner Ruben Studdard Will Compete on "The Biggest Loser"
Season Two "American Idol" winner RUBEN STUDDARD will compete on the upcoming season of "The Biggest Loser". Ruben, of course, is the guy who beat CLAY AIKEN on the finale back in 2003.
This won't be the first time he has tried to lose weight.
Ruben did an intense diet and workout program with a personal trainer in 2006 . . . but it wasn't working for him. At the time, he said, quote, "I was losing weight, but I was exhausted. It was making me sick.
"I'm a big man. There was no way to do those workouts on that amount of food . . . so everything was contradicting itself."
A little while later, he became a vegetarian and dropped more than 80 pounds . . . after starting out at 455 pounds . . . but last year, he said that he'd gained almost all of it back while going through a divorce.
Ruben will be the first ever celebrity contestant on "The Biggest Loser". The upcoming season premieres on October 8th.

ALICIA SILVERSTONE has started a breast milk SHARING service for vegan moms who can't produce enough of their own. It's called Kind Mama Milk Share, and she's setting it up through her website.

Alicia says, quote, "Because we are a community of beautiful souls who recognize the importance of food as health, I say we help support those mamas and babies who need a hand during one of the most important times in their lives
"If you have milk to share, post it! If you are in need of milk, post it! Think of all the babies we can help raise together!"
