Valerie Bertinelli Ready to Flaunt Bikini Bod With Carrie Fisher

"I would love to do a swimsuit reveal with Carrie. I've always looked up to her, so I'd love to film a commerical with her showing off her weight loss," Bertinelli told PopEater. "I'm proud of the progess she has made so far."
Bertinelli began her weight loss journey with Jenny Craig in 2007, when she weighed 172 lbs. Now, she weighs 125 lbs. She's delighted to hand the baton to Fisher, who was just named the new weight loss spokeswoman last week.
Fisher, who played Princess Leia in the original 'Star Wars' trilogy, is hoping to lose 30 pounds on the program.
"I know how to eat alone, but I need help not eating," Fisher told PopEater in early January. "I haven't been able to enjoy a good part of my life because so much of what's on my mind is about my weight."
Although she doesn't plan to wear her infamous Princess Leia two-piece when she reaches her weight loss goal, Fisher can't wait to show off her figure. She joined Jenny Craig's MetabolicMAX program in late November and reveals she has already shed 12 lbs. by eating plan-approved meals and exercising five days a week.
