Anna Kournikova To Leave 'Biggest Loser' After One Season

Two months after officially making her debut on 'The Biggest Loser', Anna Kournikova (photosAnna Kournikova photos) has announced she will not return to the series next season.

"I enjoyed my time on the Biggest Loser ranch," says the former tennis star in a statement.

"Although I will not be returning as a full time trainer on season 13, I will always be a part of The Biggest Loser family and my commitment to bettering lives through health and fitness will continue."

But sources tell THR it was NBC that asked Kournikova to leave -- not the other way around.

One person says the fit Kournikova was "a nightmare" and simply didn't sympathize with the show's overweight contestants.

"The show just wasn't the right fit for her," another source tells 'People'.

But despite the report her publicist maintains "Anna was 100 percent not fired from the show."
