Queen Latifah: The Newest Face Of Jenny Craig

Queen Latifah is the latest celebrity to front a weight-loss plan.

Beginning next month, Latifah will be a spokesperson for the Jenny Craig weight loss organization, the company confirmed in a statement.

“We officially confirm that Queen Latifah will join the Jenny Craig program in January,” Scott Parker, Jenny Craig’s Vice President of Marketing said. “We are thrilled to have Queen Latifah support our mission of improving health by taking her first step toward achieving a more healthful lifestyle.”

Last year, former “One Day At A Time” star, Valerie Bertinelli became the face of Jenny Craig, alongside Kirstie Ally.

Valerie reportedly lost 30 pounds, while Kirstie lost 75.

Queen Latifah was last on the big screen in “Hairspray,” and will be seen next alongside Katie Holmes in this winter’s, “Mad Money.”
