    Default Valerie Bertinelli wants to lose 30lbs and is the new celebrity face for Jenny Craig

    COVER STORY: Valerie Bertinelli Says 'I'm Fat'

    WEDNESDAY APRIL 04, 2007 08:45 AM EDT

    By Vicki Sheff-Cahan and Michelle Tauber



    Valerie Bertinelli, best known for her 1975-84 sitcom One Day at a Time, has landed a brand new role: Joining Kirstie Alley as the new celebrity face and body for Jenny Craig, PEOPLE reports in its new cover story.

    The 5'2" Bertinelli, who turns 47 this month, vows to lose 30 lbs. by September (from a size 14 to a size 8). Going public with her goal "is the motivation I need," Bertinelli says. "I need to do this in front of millions of people so I can't mess up."

    And, she adds: "It is freeing because I can say it first: I know what you're thinking I'm fat."

    Bertinelli says that Alley, who has maintained her 75-lb. downsizing, also offered some advice: "She said, 'Even if Wolfie [the 16-year-old son of Bertinelli and her ex, Hall of Fame rocker Eddie Van Halen] wants to go to In-N-Out Burger, don't do it, because paparazzi will photograph you!' "

    The Craig campaign, for which Bertinelli will shoot a new ad every month as she shrinks, represents a major step back into the public eye for the until-now stay-at-home mom whose last big TV role was on Touched by an Angel in 2003.

    "Wolf is my priority," she says of her son. "I was a Hollywood hermit." Also, she admits, "I didn't like going up for interviews because I didn't want to hear how fat I am."

    Although Bertinelli remains guarded about her current weight "Tom [Vitale, her boyfriend of nearly three years] doesn't even know, and he's not going to until I get down" she is blunt about her goals.

    "I don't know how my size, 14, has become obese while size 0 is normal," she says. "It's insane. I'm not even going for a size 6. I'll be happy with a size 8."

    She's still cute and has the kind of soft, round features that age very well. I find her very genuine and likeable and hope she does well.

    I really like Valerie. She has always maintained a level of class and decorum that is so absent in Hollywood these days. More importantly, even though Farrah is always credited for it, Valerie truely had the ultimate feathered back hair that every single girl I knew had from about 1976-1981. Farrah's was more of a tangled, layered curled mess - Valerie had REAL feathers, and that is the cut that most girls had. She also often sported the combination of "feathered top, tubes on the sides " look that was very popular in the majorette and cheeleading crowd. God, I miss my feathered hair.

    She does seem very down to earth.
    Hope she does well on the program. I would try something like that, but I am afraid that the food tastes like shit...

    Personally I think she's pretty as she is, but good for her if she wants to slim down.

    I have always liked her. However, those tops everybody seems to be wearing now make everybody look pregnant, I think they are hideous

    I agree, they're about as flattering as a moo moo and make even a super skinny girl look fat.

    Probably comfy though.

    I've always liked her, and I wish her the best of luck. She doesn't look bad now, but I understand her wanting to lose weight.

    What gets me about her and Kirstie Alley is they look WAY bigger than the size they say they are. I have gal pals who are in the size 14 neighborhood and Valerie looks quite a bit larger than than they do.
