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.”

Just like Queen Latifah,Oprah is another fat ass that can’t keep the donughts out of her fat mouth.

Why do we have such an obsession with weight? Thin does not equal moral, beautiful and relevant. Shouldn’t we work on our character as much as our bodies, or much more?

I am eating McDonald’s as I write this, LOL

i agree about queen…she looks great and wanted to get healthier. however, i’m sick of seeing, “real women have curves!” women without curves are real women, too…let’s just say women come in all shapes!

Wow Wow Wow, I’m not a hater, It was just making an observation. I’m a latin woman so believe me if I do understand curves, just does not make any sense to be an spokerperson for Jenny Greig and still with excess baggage.

I wonder if they have to pay the weekly fees plus the 300+ a month for food? Probably not, Im glad it works, but its expensive!

Face it ladies–if you you good on the outside,you feel better on the inside.You don’t need to be pin thin, jus not a plus size.

Oh another thing she did lose weight. She lost 20 pounds which is all she wanted to lose anyways!! Good job Queen!!

Stop bashing people because they are overweight.
It is true that when you loose the weight everything looks better on you (I should know, I lost 100 pounds with Gastric Bypass Surgery) but I also found out that the most important thing is how you perceive yourself. I believe that Queen Latifah has a very high self steem. She was careful not to mention weight loss on her commercials but rather feeling healthy. Probably she achieved her goal. She is a very successful entretainer and a great person.

Valerie and Phylicia look wonderful. They can afford to buy the program. Maybe Jenny Craig should give the program to “everyday” people and use them in their commercials. We would love to lose the weight but can’t afford to buy the program.
