NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Jenny McCarthy is tackling a double shot of television with two new shows for NBC.
During the 2012-2013 television season she’ll be hosting “Surprise with Jenny McCarthy,” but first up is the second season of dating program “Love in the Wild,” which begins June 5 on the Peacock.
“Everyone’s been saying to me, ‘Bring ‘Singled Out’ Jenny back!’ I’m like, ‘I’m 90! I can’t do it!’ But when NBC came and said we’ve got this show, ‘Love in the Wild,’ I said, ‘Let me take a look at it. Ooh, sign me up, I can bring a lot of ‘Singled Out’ Jenny into this show,’” Jenny recounted to Access Hollywood correspondent Jill Martin on Monday at NBC’s Upfronts in New York City
Asked if she found “Love in the Wild” while they were filming, the actress and TV host replied, “I made out in the wild, but I didn’t find love there. But now, I’m, doing OK.”
Jenny even dropped a hint at the type of man she’s found, revealing that her last appearance on Access Hollywood Live, where she discussed bald men with Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, may have given her some positive dating karma.
“All I know is we must have been good ‘manifesters’ because we talked about me looking for a bald guy so, things worked out,” she grinned, declining to reveal any more about her new man.
According to an April report in the Chicago Sun Times, Jenny is dating Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher.
