Queen Latifah will reign another year at Jenny Craig

The Grammy-winning singer and Oscar-nominated actress, who became spokesperson for the weight-loss chain last year, will continue through 2009, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.

"We are proud of Queen Latifah's achievements and are excited to continue the relationship," says Scott Parker, vice president of marketing for Jenny Craig. "Queen Latifah embodies the healthy lifestyle principles and character that Jenny Craig stands for and we look forward to another great year."

After following the footsteps of Kirstie Alley and Valerie Bertinelli as spokeswoman, Latifah, 38, shed 20 pounds in 2008. Famous for her curves, she has said her goal was never "about getting skinny" but to have a healthy lifestyle through proper nutrition and fitness.
