Huge fan here.
From your Living Single days, to your jazz cd, to the universally panned but MizFit-adored Taxi & Last Holiday.
Your picture book Queen of the Scene? Still a tad too old for my Tornado but already purchased & at the ready (with its accompanying cd no less.)
You exemplify—or at least the small glimpse we, the unwashed masses, are allowed to see of you—being unapologetically yourself (my goal for the Toddler Tornado if I might share a personal tidbit) & comfortable in your own skin.
All the above was why MizFit shed a protein-packed tear when she heard the news about your signing on with Jenny Craig.
Visions of you screeching FETTUCINI (ala a certain 80’s tv star) floated in my head & saddened me a smidge.
Had I been wholly wrong about your body love?
And then I saw your commercial.
You talk about becoming a size healthier. No mention of shedding a specific number of el-bees or working to achieve a specific size.
You focus on preventing diabetes and other health problems as a reason for losing weight.
When you mention that TWELVE is your favorite number you mean the number of friends/family who signed on to do Jenny with you—-not a dress size goal or pounds shed.
In this era of stars saying “I dont exercise and I eat what I want (small girlish giggle). Im just lucky I guess!” and then starving themselves/subsisting on a diet of lettuce & gummy fish you truly are the QUEEN.
