Yesterday we learned that Mariah Carey has been appearing in mysterious new TV commercials and today we learn that those commercials were to promote Mimi‘s new gig as the spokesperson for Jenny Craig weight loss. Mariah appeared on The Rosie Show last night to announce her involvement with Jenny Craig (which is going by just Jenny now) and show off her hot post baby bod. MC is also on the cover of the new issue of US Weekly magazine talking about her weight loss.

“Shake It Off,” indeed! Six months after welcoming twins Moroccan and Monroe, Mariah Carey has lost 30 pounds — and shows off her toned legs and flat stomach in size-6 short-shorts on the stunning new cover of Us Weekly, out now. “I gained an enormous amount of weight,” the Grammy-winner superstar tells Us of welcoming her son and daughter April 30 with hubby Nick Cannon. How’d she slim down? Beginning in July, Carey buckled down with a nutritionist and a workout plan from Jenny (formerly Jenny Craig), keeping to a 1,500-calorie-a-day menu and thrice-weekly workouts. “I feel incredible,” the “Fly Like a Bird” singer tells Us, three months after her body transformation began. She and Cannon, 31, famously struggled to conceive their twins (born via C-section at 35 weeks) after a heartbreaking miscarriage. “It was a huge blessing to be able to have the babies,” Carey says, “But I felt trapped in my body because I couldn’t move.” Adds the once-again svelte star: “I’m proud of how hard I worked to get my body back…I had to do this for me.”

Honestly, I never thought Mariah Carey would be the kind of celeb to sign on to endorse a weight loss company … but the time is really perfect for her to do so. After having twins, everyone is well aware that she put on weight … now she gets paid to show off the hot body she now has after she shed all of that weight … and I’m convinced she’s getting paid a FORTUNE! Mariah Carey is among THE smartest business women in entertainment … all of this sounds PERFECT to me. She will make a great spokesmodel for Jenny, you just wait and see.
