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.”

How about they try to make a real human being not a celebrity a spokesperson. Pay for them to do the diet but nothing more so they have no monetary value in saying it’s great etc.
