EXCLUSIVE: Nicole Sullivan Unveils Her Bikini Body, Thanks to Jenny Craig

Five months ago she announced her plan to drop 35 lbs. with Jenny Craig, and after 16 weeks on the program, Nicole Sullivan has met her goal! On March 22 — just one month before her 40th birthday — the Rita Rocks comedienne will showcase her better-than-before-baby bikini body in a national commercial spot — just like her successful predecessor Valerie Bertinelli. “I am beyond thrilled with my success on the Jenny Craig program,” the mom-of-two said. “After having Beckett, I dreamed of a day where I’d feel comfortable enough in a swimsuit, let alone a bikini, to join my husband on pool-side play dates. Getting into a bikini again and feeling as good as I feel now.” The best thing about dropping the weight? “[Now] my two children will always see Mommy as healthy! And my husband Jason can’t be more thrilled; he’s lost 25 pounds of ‘sympathy weight’ to boot.” And the funny lady, a MADtv alum, tells PEOPLE that there is one more fun bonus: shopping! “I went in and bought a pair of size 4 pants and I don’t ever remember doing that — maybe when I was 21 [years-old]. I feel like the world has opened up to me. Does a lot of it have to do with fun clothes? Yeah, but you know what? Women love fun clothes. It’s a big deal to us. I feel like I can wear anything in my closet. And I can buy stuff that’s really cute.” Hear more from Nicole on her weight loss in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands tomorrow. –reporting by Elaine Aradillas

sorry Nicole, I know the dieting and exercising are esential however, this pic depicts you frail, unhealthy and not flattering at all…i think you should put some weight back on..

I find these jenny craig and nutrisystem adds so ridiculous. seriously, you think she looks like that just from food?! no way. she obviously worked out like crazy to have a firm belly and toned arms and legs like that. same with the nutrisystem chick. they should really stress to people they need to EXERCISE ALOT to look like the spokemodels. so misleading. and yes, she’s too skinny. she looks sickly.

She’s almost forty and has two kids. She’s a regular person not an athlete or swimsuit model. So, guess what, everything isn’t going to be tight and toned. Relax.

I agree with Rusty, she looks a little scary. TOO thin. It’s great to lose weight, I’m all for keeping a health weight…… but….this doesn’t look healthy

Allison on

I absolutely love her, but definitely think she should have kept 5 pounds of that weight on.

She looks a little creepy. But hey, good for you if that is what you want.

Another Hollywood Lollipop!! Do they not know that the lollipop look is not sexy…it’s sickly! Bummer deal, she was cute before!

Wow! I agree with everyone who says this in not a good pic. She looks sick, not healthy, if thin = healthy, ok, but, man, it’s a bad shot. But, I do agree that this Jenny Craig thing is doing a lot for many people who have struggles with weight loss. it’s a train to jump onto if you can.
