The New York Post says today that Kirstie Alley will no longer be the lead spokeswoman for the weight loss program Jenny Craig. She will however continue to endorse dresses where the waist is made of elastic. Page Six says:
Jenny Craig spokesman Scott Parker says, "Although Kirstie will not appear in future advertising endeavors for us, she does remain on Jenny Craig's maintenance program and is confident that our program has helped her incorporate positive lifestyle changes that should last a lifetime.”Kirstie will be succeeded by Valerie Bertinelli and rapper-turned-actress Queen Latifah."Now that Kirstie has 'passed her maintenance baton' to Valerie, you'll see a new campaign with a new celebrity client emerge in 2008… one that promotes health with Queen Latifah."
More like passed her "maintenance bacon" to Valerie. I don’t know what the fuck that means, but these are starting to look more like an ad for one of those humiliating motorized shopping carts than one for weight loss. Why not just hire a damn gummy bear or Twinkie The Kid.
