Valerie Bertinelli and Nicole Sullivan are about to be in even better company as Eastwick star Sara Rue joins them as the newest spokesperson for Jenny Craig. The 31-year-old actress tells PEOPLE that she can’t wait to start the program. “My weight has fluctuated my whole life, and because I’ve been on television since I was 11 years old, everyone has seen it,” she explains. “I think like so many women in this country I have a problem controlling what I eat sometimes based on my emotional health.” Bertinelli, who lost 40 pounds on Jenny Craig, tells PEOPLE that Rue “is me three years ago. She’s every woman who’s ever started a diet.” She will be a good spokesperson because, “she’s real. She’s honest.” Rue’s initial weight loss goal is 30 pounds. Then, she says, “we’ll see how my body looks, how I feel, and go from there.” Her first post-weight loss goal? “Rock climbing or wind surfing!” Rue says. “The things that I’m just too intimidated the size I am now to do.” But the big question remains: Does she want to follow in Bertinelli’s footsteps and sport a bikini? “If I look half as good as Valerie does at the end of this, maybe, possibly,” Rue says, smiling. “I don’t know if I’m more scared of sharks or being in a bathing suit. Maybe sharks, depending on the day.” For more on Rue, pick up the December 14 issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.–Monica Rizzo

I’m a Jenny Craig client and love the program and my consultant – she makes all the difference during my weekly consultations. I wish Sara luck and know she will be successful with whatever she sets out to accomplish!

I’ll bet that the posters here who are on Jenny Craig and are ‘happy’ with the price are single women who do not have to purchase ‘regular’ food as well for their family. My grocery bill averages $150 per week. If I joined J C the weekly cost would almost equal my grocery bill for the rest of the family! To the lady who commented that it equals going out once a week with her family…. where are you eating?? At the Ritz?
