Queen Latifah is the new Jenny Craig spokesperson.
1) When I think of the words "gorgeous" and "glamorous," Queen Latifah is one of the first women who comes to mind.
2) Jenny Craig is one of the programs that require you to buy their food. That has never made sense to me.
In both the linked article, and her TV spot, "...a healthier lifestyle, not on getting onto a specific dress size" are the focus.
Call me cynical, but that's no better than Weight Watchers' "Diets are Mean" ad campaign. You can spin it all you want, but it's still a diet! (And one that worked very well for myself, my mother, and many of my closest friends. I want to emphasize that, because I realize I've come across as very anti-WW lately, and I need to fix that.)
Seriously, though. If Queen Latifah wanted to raise awareness for diabetes or "a healthier lifestyle," I feel like there are better channels through which to work. Even Weight Watchers, if associating herself with a weight loss program was her aim. That being said, I can understand feeling that this would be a more accessible conduit for her message. If that was her reasoning, then excellent. If not? I'd be very, very surprised.
