Exclusive! Sara Rue: ‘I’ve Never Worn a Bikini in My Entire Life’

Although it’s not your goal to wear any teensy weensy bikini like the Jenny Craig spokeswomen before you, Sara, you’ll look fab in one anyway with your hardcore exercise plan!

Believe it or not, Sara Rue has never worn a bikini before – and she doesn’t plan to in the future, either. “I’ve never worn a bikini in my entire life,” the newest Jenny Craig spokeswoman tells

Although Kirstie Alley and Valerie Bertinelli strut their stuff in skimpy swimsuits for their respective ad campaigns, Sara says she won’t follow in their footsteps. “I have not committed to appearing in a bathing suit,” she tells us, adding thoughtfully, “But you never know what could happen.”

Sara, 30, says that her problem area has always been her stomach, so we completely get her bikini anxiety. “I’ve never felt comfortable showing my stomach, so I’d like to be free of that worry,’ she confesses. “Even just wearing jeans and a cute T-shirt, I’d like to not have to worry about feeling self-conscious.”

One thing that really makes Sara sweat – and not in a good way – is the gym. “I don’t like spin classes, because people yell at me. As soon as people yell at me, I’m out!”

Which perhaps is a reason Sara does her gym duty at home, from the comfort of her garage. “I’m not a gym person. I feel uncomfortable when I work out there, so I work out at home!” she says. “I use the treadmill in my garage and watch really bad reality television.”

In addition to the treadmill, Sara says that she also tries “to get 45 minutes of cardio five times a week and then do a regime of crunches/lunges: 100 crunches, 25 lunges and 25 drops.”

Atta girl, Sara! Whether you want to wear a bikini or not, we know you’re going to look damn good in one with this exercise routine!
