Mike & Molly star Melissa McCarthy has been named the new brand spokeswoman for Ivory soap.
The Emmy winning funny lady said of her new gig:
"I grew up using Ivory, and that smell always reminds me of when I was a kid. As a working mom of two, I love anything that simplifies my life. So when one bar of soap can handle backyard dirt, spaghetti hands and the unidentified crusty bits under my girls' necks, I'm in."
Melissa will also host the "Soap Dish", Ivory's new online social community on Facebook, where she will interact with women and discuss everyday topics including motherhood, marriage and meatloaf.
Ha! Congrats Melissa!
