Chubby ladies of the world: beware.

MSNBC’s tall, thin, blonde co-host Mika Brzezinski wants to join Weight Watchers.

Not wants. More like she’s dying to get in.

Regular watchers of MSNBC “Morning Joe” already know about her intense obsesession with food. Who can forget her startling admission of blindly eating a tub of Nutella in the middle of the night as her husband watched in horror?

Now she has a new obsession: She wants to go to the Weight Watchers meeting. She said as much on Friday’s program.

Specifically, she wants to go with “Clinton: The Musical” star Judy Gold, who attends with comedians Susie Essman and Joy Behar. In “Clinton: The Musical,” Gold plays Eleanor Roosevelt and Linda Tripp.

Gold tried to fight her off.

“I’m gong to this meeting, please?” Mika begged.

“Well the publicist is going to kill me,” said Gold, then mimicking her publicist: “‘Why did you tell her about the Weight Watchers meeting?'”

Gold soon grew mock testy. “You don’t need weight watchers and you already wrote that book,” she snapped. “I don’t want to hear your relationship with food when you look like that. OK?”

Mika replied, “I know, I’m obsessed.”

Gold reasoned, “I have to wear like bicycle shorts under my dress so my legs don’t rub together.”

Mika asked, “Are you wearing SPANX right now?”

Gold admitted, “YESSSS.”

Mika tried to empathize. “God I hate that,” she said, asking again, “Can I go to this meeting?”

Again Gold displayed impatience: “YESSSS.”

And then, “No, you’re not coming. You can’t weigh in.”

Mika went absolutely loopy. “I want tooooo,” she cooed. “I want to weigh in. I want to weigh in.”
