Valerie Bertinelli, Phylicia Rashad and Queen Latifah won’t be the only stars officially whipping their figures into shape with Jenny Craig. Just six weeks after giving birth to her second child, Nicole Sullivan of Lifetime’s Rita Rocks plans to begin a new role, losing 35 lbs. of baby weight as a spokesperson for the weight-loss program. “Baby weight’s different than other stuff,” she tells PEOPLE exclusively. “You spend a year of your life eating what you want and enjoying letting the baby have what it feels like having — and I'[ve] lost track of what I’m supposed to be doing that’s right.” In addition to retraining herself about portion control, the actress (whose show returns Oct. 5) hopes that access to one of the program’s personal weight-loss counselors will keep her cravings in check. “If I could have done it on my own I would have,” Nicole explains, continuing, “There’s going to be someone I can ask questions — and someone to call me on my B.S.” To jump-start dropping one pound below her wedding-weight of 126 lbs., Nicole is keeping her goals real. “We all say we want to get healthy — and we do. We also want to look cute,” she laughs. “I want to put my jeans on and have my jeans look cute.” But beyond being able to slip back into her skinniest denim, “I want to be able to go snowboarding and have a fun day on the mountain without being out of breath all the time. I don’t want to feel like I’m too old,” she says. “I’m too young to feel like I’m too old to do stuff, basically is my motto.”

Corina, your a complete idiot and a moron! Queen Latifah is awesome and is NOT fat, she’s got curves. Maybe your the one that needs to lose some pounds, in your head!

And as for Nicole Sullivan GO GIRL!

Sophe D on

This is great!! She (Nicloe) is so cute anyway and real down to earth:)

Queen Latifah lost about 20lbs and that was all she said she wanted to lose? Her Aunt lost over 35lbs..Queen likes her body the way it is and just losing that 20 made her more healthy!!
Real women have curves!!

Corina, don’t be hater girl! Why don’t you join Jenny Craig and turn yourself into a hottie!?

I think I remember Queen Latifah saying something about wanting to become healthier, losing weight was not her main concern. I love Queen Latifah and I think she is a stand-up person, not only for herself, but for the real women who DO have curves, but are not really “fat”. Good for her! TV, movies, magazines and the whole media mentality are for these itty bitty stick girls, that any women I know haven’t seen that shape or size since 8th grade!! They just look like junior high boys with fake boobs. Queen was awesome in presenting herself in such a manner that said ‘I love me, and it’s ok to have curves BECAUSE I am a woman!’
I don’t know who Nicole Sullivan is, and good luck to her, but if I was approached to lose weight on Jenny Craigs dime, I would do it. Wouldn’t you?

I wish that people would stop focusing on the outside appearance and put as much effort into what they are on the inside…we have such a screwed up idea of what beauty is and isn’t.

The outside is just going to rot away anyway..diet all you want, zip into those zero jeans, but momma is still right… “it’s what’s on the inside that counts!”

I just joined Jenny Craig and started a month ago (I’m on day 31). I’ve lost 12.4 pounds (and counting) and have actually done a whole new change to myself and my activity level. Nicole will get the weight off in no time and it will do wonders for her to be in the program.

I agree with you Kim, only it IS OK to want to be healthier and at the time look cute in your jeans…after all, when you eat right, looking cute is icing on the cake!

You can be curvy and not fat, unfortunately, Queen Latifah is not. She is both curvy and still obese. It is unfortunate, but she is. I love her, her personality, voice, and acting ability, i would just love to see less of her body. BTW, I am curvy, I have breasts and hips, but I keep my body weight within my correct BMI. (5″4, 130lbs, 34DD, size 4 pant) You don’t need to be a stick, but you do need to keep your weight down simply for heart health, considering heart disease in the number one killer of women.
