Jenny McCarthy is getting her own VH1 talk show “I get to be my true, dirty self”

If you’re new-ish to celebrity gossip and find yourself baffled as to why we dislike Jenny McCarthy, you can read these three stories for background. She trashed her ex boyfriend, Jim Carrey, for not visiting her son after their breakup, even though the boy is not Carrey’s biological son, and even though Carrey reportedly gave her a nice cash settlement (which was unnecessary, they weren’t married). Plus she regularly says things just to be shocking. I guess that’s how she’s always been and that’s how she’s carved a career for herself.

In the January 2013 issue of Shape Magazine, Jenny reveals her incredible bikini body and her secrets for staying slim. She also announces that she’s going to have her own talk show on VH1. We’ve heard rumors in the past couple of years that Jenny was shopping some kind of talkshow, and that she was potentially going to get a deal on Oprah’s network. (That fell through, although it’s probably to Jenny’s benefit since no one watches that network anyway.) Now it’s really happening, and she’s going to find a home on the network with the trashiest of the trash shows. (Although that’s arguably TLC, not VH1.)

Jenny McCarthy is single and she’s hoping that when she launches her upcoming VH1 talk show next year, a certain leading man comes by the couch – Bradley Cooper.

“He’s my number-one crush,” Jenny told Shape magazine, which features the 40-year-old celeb showing off her toned midriff on its January 2013 cover. “I’m hoping he’ll be a guest on my show.”

Jenny is currently single, and she told the mag she is focusing on “me” time.

“I’ve gone on some dates, but I’m really taking a time-out for me at the moment,” she told Shape. “One thing I realized in my past relationships is that I’m the best damn girlfriend ever. I put so much energy into my boyfriends and their needs. If I gave myself that same kind of attention, who knows where I’d be at my life at this point? So for now, I’m putting everything I’ve got into my talk show and being a great mom.”

As for that TV talker – “The Jenny McCarthy Show” — which is coming to VH1, Jenny said it will showcase all sides of her personality.

“I’m scared and excited about it at the same time,” she said.

“Because it’s for an adult audience, the producers are giving me free rein and have asked me to push the envelope, I get to be my true, dirty self,” she added.

Jenny heads into her talk show looking better than ever, the result of a gluten and dairy free diet.

“That’s the best health change I’ve ever made,” she said. “I lost a few pounds and have much more energy. My new favorite thing is my soup diet. I make a ton of nutritious ones, like butternut squash and vegetable. When I want to drop 5 pounds quickly, I eat them for every meal for about 10 days.”

Jenny has revealed her crush on Bradley Cooper before, which is strange to me. I can’t imagine anyone getting hot for that guy. I feel like she just picked some random actor who doesn’t get any love and decided to declare a crush so that the media would take notice. I don’t get Bradley Cooper’s appeal. Someone must though since he was People’s sexiest last year.

As for her soup diet I’ve heard her say that before. She said she has Montel Williams’ Health Master blender and she makes the soups in there. (You can use it to heat and everything due to how fast the blades are.) I have a Vitamix and have only made soup in it about twice. I usually use it for smoothies for breakfast. I wonder if I could do this soup diet or if it would drive me crazy. After lunch of just soup on the first day I would be grabbing a roll and scarfing it down, I doubt I could go without solid food for so long like that.

OK! has more online from Jenny’s Shape article, including her recommendations for exercises, if you’re interested.

    I guess we now officially have all dumb people on TV. Or am I missing someone?

  2. aims says:

    Of course she thinks shes “the best damn girlfriend.” Is that why shes always breaking up, and then trashes her ex’s? They might be rolling their eyes at the statement.

  3. PinkG says:

    Welcome to the new America. No intelligence, no integrity.

    • RN says:

      Precisely. Exhibiting trashy, unintelligent behavior is now a lucrative career path in the good old US of A. It turns out that you don’t actually need university; rather, just invest in implants (location TBD by user) and speak as coarsely as possible ( in an effort to “keep it real”). Bonus points if working in Las Vegas means realizing your ultimate dream.

    • OhDear says:

      It’s common in Europe now (and possibly Australia), too.

  4. judyjudy says:

    I strongly dislike the term “me time”. Ugh.

  5. Hautie says:

    “I put so much energy into my boyfriends and their needs. If I gave myself that same kind of attention, who knows where I’d be at my life at this point?…”

    Seriously? If there has ever been a girl who has always put her ass first…. it is Jenny McCarthy.

    I bet is just chaps her ass. That her cousin Melissa McCarthy, has turned into a huge success. Without having to show everyone her tits. Numerous times.

    Or trash talking every man, that ever made the mistake, to care for her.

    • poppy says:

      so true. you know it chaps her ass; not only did she become famous for getting nekkid, she had surgery so she could look good nekkid, and god only knows who, erm, what else she had to do. and here comes cousin melissa, not blonde, not botoxed, not boobified, and not skinny! omg! she has talent and can use her brain! unlike cousin jenny.
      seriously, i had no idea they are related. i NEVER would have made the connection -solely because i can’t imagine anyone admitting they are related to jenny mccarthy.

  6. mzthirtyeight says:

    I think she can be entertaining, and I like a goofball, but I do hope she steers clear of some of her more controversial views and keeps it lighthearted. Gotta be better than Handler.
    As for the soup thing, if I liked more than 2 kinds I might try it-but I, too, would probably be goin loco without solid food.

    • deehunny says:

      She really does look fantastic & I think you made a good point- she can be fun & entertaining when she keeps things lighthearted and funny.

      And that ANYTHING is better than Handler. Ugh. Talk about insufferable.

  7. Kittykat says:

    For the first time – I get it how too much too dark make up makes you LOOK OLD!! Dang

  8. cmc says:

    She’s annoying and seems like an overall awful, insufferable person, but her body is amazing. If there’s ANYTHING I’d be willing to listen to her talk about it’s diet and exercise tips.

    Can I just say, I’m really glad she has STFU about the supposed vaccine/autism connection.

  9. shewolf says:

    I dislike her very much and out of all the celebrities to bring awareness to vaccine related injuries did it really have to be her? Ugh. She looks fantastic though, I’ll give her that! She just needs to settle down on the crazy eyes.

  10. NerdMomma says:

    I dislike Jenny McCarthy for distracting families dealing with autism or worried about autism with her anti-vaccination nonsense. She’s done more damage to the field of autism research than any uneducated trashy ho should ever be able to do. I can’t believe there’s anyone anywhere who wants to hear what she has to say. About ANYTHING.

    • judyjudy says:

      The truth is that some children ARE injured by vaccines. The numbers aren’t high but it does happen. Researching why it happens and who might be effected is very difficult.

      I agree that Jenny Mcarthy is a poor representative of any cause but it is unfair to assume that others who are concerned about the correlation between vax and autism or any other related injury are spewing nonsense.

      It is a legitimate concern for some. Be thankful that your children are healthy and try to share compassion with those who are desperately seeking answers regarding their child’s health.

      • NerdMomma says:

        I am a special education teacher and I love my students dearly and am very compassionate for what their families deal with. The fact is, there has never been a link between vaccines and autism- there was one article published that was later debunked because the data used was faked. Do vaccines have ill effects for some kids? I am sure that they do. Do they cause autism? I am saying that the amount of attention that has been placed on an autism-vaccination link has distracted people who have a lot of passion for helping kids and families from doing things that would have been more effective. A ton of money and time has been wasted due to that false information.

  11. neelyo says:

    Because America’s been clamoring for a budget Chelsea Handler show.

  12. lori says:

    Bradley Cooper and Jim Carey are really close friends. That’s why Jenny says she has a crush on Bradley. To make a dig at Jim.

    • OhDear says:

      Man, she really needs to move on from that. Though I suspect that she’s using the association to draw more attention to herself.

  13. Susan says:

    She does look good, but I doubt she got that body by only eating soup. Mmmmmm-hmmm…

    And I can’t handle TV anymore. Every frigin’ “celebrity” and their grandma’s pomeranian seems to have a reality TV shows these days! I stayed in a hotel over the weekend and tried watching some cable TV since I don’t have a TV at home and figured it would be fun. Lemme tell you, I found myself constantly switching channels trying to find some decent content amidst all of the heavily scripted “reality” TV shows. What have they done to The Learning Channel?

  14. Joanna says:

    it’s sad when women are so used to getting things for being “sexy” that that’s all they can do. yes, jenny’s pretty hot, but she needs to mature and realize she has more to offer than sexiness and her “dirty” schtick.

    she’ll be like madonna, at 60, making a fool out of herself.

  15. littlemissnaughty says:

    Why do I think that this woman is worse for TV than Honey Boo Boo? That was honestly my first thought. She’s going to educate America on autism, isn’t she? Ugh.
    She’s so grating and she comes off as one of those people who have NO clue how they come across. Complete lack of self-awareness. She must be exhausting in real life.

  16. Elina says:

    Her face looks crazy. Not cute.

  17. Blannie says:

    I can’t STAND this woman. And since I live in the Chicago area, she’s turning up regularly on a local morning talk show, Windy City Live. Every time I turn it on and I see her ugly mug, I turn it right back off again.

    She’s vulgar, coarse and supremely grating. I predict her show will flop since she’ll be required to talk about other people and that’s not anything she’s interested in doing. She’s all me-me-me.

  18. Stuart Horsely says:

    Do I see bad cheek implants? Ugh. They look painful.

  19. Webbie says:

    Oh gosh….. Just no. Is she honestly insinuating her previous remarks and actions were filtered?! Confidence and crassnes are two different things, they are not interchangeable. :/

  20. KellyinSeattle says:

    Count your blessings, Jim Carrey!

  21. evyn says:

    Oh, dear Lord. Why?

  22. Holden says:

    Oh christ, apparently she learned nothing from her obnoxious ass days. Here we go again.

  23. DreamyK says:

    I was so-so with Jenny until a few things happened this last year that make me think this woman is a tad unhinged: Moving to Chicago to be near NFL player Urlacher after only dating a few months was creepy. He dumped her very shortly after she arrived there. Because, you know, she’s creepy.

    Then wrapping her hand around Justine Beaver’s neck and trying to bite his artery was beyond creepy. It was disturbing.

    Why do these big wigs not talk to more women before they sign people up for a talk show. That’s baffling. I don’t know anyone who would want to watch her. Ever.

  24. Str8Shooter says:

    Oh right, Jenny. Cuz you’ve been nothing short of a Jane Austen-esque figure all of these years. Like the time you did a Candies shoe ad while you were taking a dump. Or being interviewed and talking about your flatulence.


  25. truthful says:

    I wish she’d go away…

  26. Tuxedo Cat says:

    I cannot stand this woman, and I don’t even know why. She just seems to show up every few years and she’s so loud, with nothing really interesting to say. I am embarrassed for her son. She is way too personal for me in her personal commentary. If she didn’t have children, it’s different, but who wants to read about their mom humping a tree branch.
