Love in the Wild host, Jenny McCarthy may have kicked off the New Year by kissing a sailor, but she has no plans for settling down with a new boyfriend anytime soon. Instead, the 40-year-old insists she’s taking some much-needed time for herself.
According to the Daily Stab, McCarthy is a picture of health on the cover of Shape Magazine’s Jan/Feb issue and 2013 is looking bright for the Playboy cover girl. In her interview with the magazine, McCarthy dishes about her new show, dieting tips, and dating.
McCarthy is looking forward to her upcoming late-night talk show, “The Jenny McCarthy Show,” coming out this spring. “I’m scared and excited about it at the same time. 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, I get to be “very open, kind of dirty, raw, and real.” This should be interesting!
McCarthy talks about staying fit and trim, and dished some dieting tips. She said a gluten and milk free diet was “the best health change” she’d ever made. “I lost a few pounds and have more energy,” she said. However, she admits her new soup diet is her favorite. “I make tons 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.”
When it comes to dating and having a boyfriend, McCarthy has put on the brakes. “I’ve gone on some dates, but I’m really taking a time-out for me at the moment,” she said. “One thing I realized in my past relationships is that I’m the best d*mn 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.”
