Tonight's special guest is Ajay Rochester, an Australian who now makes her home in Beverly Hills. An adopted child, Ajay has faced a number of challenges that might easily have broken her, including physical and emotional abuse in her childhood. A single mum to a boisterous and beguiling son whose Asperger’s Syndrome went undiagnosed for the first five years of his life, Ajay found herself obese, alone and running out of options. Her diary about her weight-loss lessons that transformed over 300 pounds of depression, eating disorders and damaging yo-yo diets became her first book, Confessions of a Reformed Dieter. Ms Rochester become a role model for women everywhere struggling with obesity, well being and self-esteem issues. She wrote 4 more books on health and wellness, and established a thriving member-driven online community and support network called Healthy Body Club. A former host of "The Biggest Loser" TV show, Ajay is again struggling with her weight, but has taken on an additional and even more important issue, her Bullying Bites TV campaign, partly in response to her son's life experience.  Now 13 years old, but doing well with his high functioning Asperger’s, he's been bullied one way or another his entire life. As Ajay says, "Humans of all different kinds deserve an equal amount of love, respect and dignity."
