LOS ANGELES - April 26, 2007 � On this week's episode of Bravo's Work Out, SkyLab owner Jackie Warner and her trainers receive the devasting news that their dear friend and fellow trainer Doug Blasdell passed away. This poignant episode, dedicated to the memory of Blasdell, begins with Warner traveling to her hometown in Ohio where she works to reconcile her relationship with her mother, as well as visits her father's grave for the very first time, Tuesday, May 1 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Photography from this series is available on Media Village at www.nbcmv.com/bravo.com.
Warner and the trainers receive news from the hospital about Blasdell. "It's unexplainable the feeling you get when someone calls and tells you that they will die," said Peeler. "There's nothing you can do about it. You can say every prayer to God you can say, you can find all the money in the world, the best doctors in the world, and nothing will change it."
Warner also goes home to Fairborn, Ohio for an emotional visit. "I feel like I'm in a child-like state when I'm home, and it's not a comfortable one," said Warner as she drives through her hometown feeling emotionally unstable. "Until I resolve my relationship with my mother, I'm not going to find peace in my life. " While home, Warner visits her father's grave for the first time, which helps resolves lingering childhood issues.
