According to the LiveFeed, Sara Rue, of 'Popular' and 'Less Than Perfect' fame, is set to host 'Shedding for the Wedding,' a midseason reality show on the CW.

Rue, who lost 40 pounds in six months on Jenny Craig and has appeared with Valerie Bertinelli in ads for the chain, will oversee the shenanigans that ensue when 10 couples who want to slim down in time for their big day hole up under the same roof for three months. And, borrowing a page from 'The Biggest Loser,' each week the couple that loses the fewest pounds will be banished from the house.

The 31-year-old actress has more than weight-loss in common with the contestants on the show. She's been engaged to teacher Kevin Price since last August and has her own nuptials to look forward to -- and keep fit for. (Her first marriage to director/writer Mischa Livingston ended in divorce in 2007 after 6 years.)

Although a premiere date for the show has yet to be announced, in the meantime fans can keep an eye out for Rue's big-screen comedy, 'For Christ's Sake,' which is in the can and awaiting a 2010 release date.
