It was a good week for women in their 40s. Valerie Bertinelli, best known as a child star on One Day at a Time, has recently reappeared on the scene as a spokesperson for Jenny Craig. As you can see from the above People magazine cover, Jenny Craig did some mighty good work for Valerie. The 48-year-old’s body puts many a 20-year-old’s to shame. Sorry, Kirstie Allie, I think you did it wrong.
Valerie’s not the only one making fortysomething look damn good these days. Former model Cindy Crawford clearly hasn’t let selling couches get in the way of working on her figure. I think this shoot from Allure magazine says it all:
Now we don’t want to get labeled as pornography so we’ll crop the picture here, but you can imagine what the rest looks like. Isn’t this a tad racy for Allure? But stripping down and getting sudsed up is definitely one way of saying a big old “f*** you” to anyone who thinks you look old.
Pardon me, I’m going to go to the gym now…
