Do you remember when you last thought Jenny McCarthy was hot? That was back in the 90s wasn’t it? So in that respect her new Playboy cover, where she’s clutching her breasts while wearing throwback fingerless fishnet gloves, is fitting. Too harsh? I concede that McCarthy is superficially hot, until she opens her mouth. She’s really been annoying me lately by trashing her ex boyfriend for not visiting her kid, who isn’t even his. You heard that story, I’m not getting into it again. She claimed earlier that she grew out “a bush” for the shoot, which honestly made me want to see it. Luckily the photos aren’t yet available online or I may have given in and bought the magazine on Zinio. Here’s what Jenny told People about it:
Just months away from hitting the big 4-0, Jenny McCarthy proves she’s still got it.
The host of NBC’s Love in the Wild appears in her seventh nude pictorial for Playboy in the July/August issue that hits newsstands Friday, and PEOPLE has a sneak peek.
“I’m really proud of it,” McCarthy tells PEOPLE. “The pictures are really gorgeous and classy. They could be out of W magazine. They’re really elegant. It’s probably a lot more sophisticated than a lot of the stuff you’d see of people with their clothes on.”
Prepping for the shoot didn’t take much effort for the TV personality.
“The one thing I like about Playboy is they don’t have the anorexic look,” she says. “The women are voluptuous. So I didn’t really want to diet. I just wanted to tone up.”
Well she’s got to pay her bills somehow, since Jim Carrey didn’t give her $50 million or $25 million when they split. He probably gave her something, though, but in Jenny’s mind it wasn’t enough to stop her from talking smack about him when she needed some publicity.
Playboy has a few head shots online and they actually look pretty, prettier than this cheesy image. Really, when were these type of gloves ever hot? I associate them with eighth grade, Madonna and Desperately Seeking Susan. I guess Playboy knew which demographic they were going for when putting Jenny on the cover. Too harsh? It’s not her age, which is very close to mine, it’s her.
