If you think Jillian Michaels is just a fitness phenomenon, think again!

The uber-successful health guru is showing off a side of herself the world has never seen before in E!'s new eight-part docu-series Just Jillian. Just Jillian will follow Michaels "as she takes on balancing the demands of her ever-growing empire, parenting five-year-old Lukensia ("Lu") and three and a half-year-old Phoenix with doting partner Heidi, and trying to devote enough quality time to all of them," E! announced in a press release today.

So how's Jillian handling having cameras around her 24-7?

"I'm having a great time!" Michaels recently told E! News exclusively. "I'm having fun."

But it's a bit of a different story for Heidi, the adorably shy and soft-spoken one in the relationship. "I don't really like being the center of attention at all, so even solo interview give me really bad anxiety," Heidi joked.

As for how daughter Lu and son Phoenix are liking the world of reality TV, Michaels gushed, "They're having fun! The kids are having a great time. They got very attached to the crew. They're the stars actually."

In addition to showcasing Michaels' balls-to-the-wall work ethic, Just Jillian will give fans the chance to see a softer side of Michaels at home and in her relationship with Heidi (but trust us, there's never a dull moment!). "I find that we have very typical issues that other couples have," Michaels revealed. "You got to dinner with a couple and you hear the same s--t that goes on in your own household, so I think it will be fun for people. It's sort of like a big, gay Modern Family...It's a lot of fun."

Don't miss Just Jillian when it premieres Jan. 19 at 10 p.m., only on E!
