We know she’s not as famous as Angelina Jolie or even a random Kardashian. We still adore Nicole Sullivan–and Us Weekly, for giving this working-gal actress an outlet for saying something that we don’t hear enough. First of all, though, we should note that this pic is from Nicole’s commercial for Jenny Craig. The actress (probably still best known for MADtv and a recurring role on Cougar Town) has certainly helped to create the perception that new moms need to concentrate on getting the weight off fast. We’ll even note that we’re about to quote Nicole while she was at the recent “Real Women of Jenny Craig” event in New York City. Still, we think she’s being admirably frank when she tells Us the following: [photo via jennycraig]
“I would flip through celeb magazines…and I just couldn’t get how these moms like Jessica Alba lost so much weight so quickly—and yet I couldn’t. They all lie and say, ‘Oh, I lost the weight running after the kids or breastfeeding.’ It’s not true!”
Yes. We’ve thought the same thing. In fact, we even caught ourselves agreeing with Courtney Love once when she complained about all the models and actresses who blithely insist that they never diet to maintain their Hollywood-worthy weight. “Liars,” Courtney sneered, and we thought the same. Sorry for departing from the sisterhood. Also, Jenny Craig has already publicly announced that they won’t be offering a sponsorship deal to Kim Kardashian. That was a little preemptive, but, you know–good for them.
