'Biggest Loser' Chick Dumps Hubby ... for a Lady

5/9/2010 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A female "Biggest Loser" contestant didn't just drop a couple of pounds after she left the show -- she also dropped her husband ... and picked up a brand new GIRLFRIEND!

TMZ has learned Rasha Spindel -- who appeared on the NBC reality show back in 2006 with her then-fiance Edwin Chapman -- recently divorced the guy after three years of marriage ... and is now engaged to a woman.

We spoke to Rasha, who told us, “After 30 years, I finally realized I was gay. I have never been this happy as I am now as I am about to marry my best friend and soul mate who just happens to be the sexiest drag-king on the planet.”

Rasha added, "I wish Edwin the best of luck and I hope he finds happiness."

Spindel's new special somebody is Vanna Pecoraro -- they're set to tie the knot at a private ceremony on August 28.

The comments here are disgusting and homophobic. Bigotry is rallied against in our society, yet hate directed towards those in the gay community is still fair game. I have no qualms with the sexual orientation of others, as it is none of my business whom someone else decides to love. We are not in ANY position to tell this woman whom she should date, marry or spend her life with. Commenters would be better served to be concerned with whom they share their beds with, rather than with someone who looks to be so obviously happy.

I think I'm done with TMZ... This is just another attempt for perfect strangers to "post" rude, nasty, immature comments about people we don't even know. WHO CARES IF SHE'S GAY???? I'm sure there are a lot of unpleasent things we (the internet world) could post about all of you negative posters out there. Shame on you TMZ for allowing these two women to be ridiculed for no reason. I was a fan, but no longer. AND this is coming from a conservative repulican!! GROW UP PEOPLE AND HAVE A LITTLE EMPATHY!!

Dude- Seriously who cares! Who is this chick anyway. She's ugly and fat and so is her dyke girlfriend. That guy rocked and he was hot. He should be the one interviewed.

If a woman is gay, that means they like other females. So, why would a gay woman choose to be with a woman who looks so male? You would think she wouldn't be attracted to her because she doesn't look like a female. Just like Chaz Bono. Her girlfriend is gay and likes women. But now, he is considering himself a guy. So, will his girlfriend leave him now for another woman since he technically isn't one anymore???

I just dont get lesbians, I actually can accept gay men more than lesbians cause men are just too fun to be with, a strap on is no substitute for the real thing lol
