Actress-turned-author Jenny McCarthy stopped by The Grove to chat with "Extra's" Mario Lopez about her new book, "Love, Lust and Faking It: The Naked Truth about Sex, Lies, and True Romance."
"I thought 'Should I write a harlequin novel or should I write my own experiences on love and disastrous sex stories?'" McCarthy explained. "The latter won. I wrote all my disaster stories."
On Tuesday's "Oprah," Jenny McCarthy opens up for the first time about why she and Jim Carrey ended their five-year relationship -- and addresses her current dating status.
McCarthy and Carrey seemed to be a match made in celebrity couple heaven, but they called it quits last May. Jenny told the queen of talk that when a relationship "isn't fun anymore, you need to start an investigation and do an inquiry into the relationship."
Actress Jenny McCarthy has definitely found a new man -- and his name is Jason Toohey.
Although McCarthy has teased about her "mystery man" on her Twitter account, the two have finally made it public, recently kissing at the Midsummer Night's Dream party at Las Vegas's Palms Casino Resort.
To Jenny McCarthy the saying, 'What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas!' rings oh-so-true!
"I can't believe how much cleavage I'm showing on f***ing 'Extra' right now!" the buxom blonde exclaimed, as "Extra" caught up with McCarthy at Playboys' Midsummer Nights Dream party at Las Vegas' Palms Hotel.
"Extra's" Terri Seymour caught up with Jenny McCarthy at the Pepsi Refresh Project in Anaheim, where Jenny dished about being single -- and rumors that she's developing a new daytime talk show.
"I'm having a good time, I'm enjoying being single," she said of her breakup with longtime beau Jim Carrey, adding that she's ready to date again. "I mean, look at me. Do you think I'm wearing these false eyelashes for the Community Center? I'm 37 and lookin' for love."
The funnywoman has been having some fun with the media -- she recently tweeted pictures of herself with other men, "friends" she added. "I even tweeted my next mystery man. It's me making out with Darth Vadar."
One thing McCarthy is sure of with her future love life: no more famous people. But she does say she and Carrey are still good friends. "Oh yeah, absolutely. I have nothing but wonderful things to say, a wonderful man, great experience."
The actress is finally answering those pesky rumors that she might be replacing Oprah. "Can anyone really replace Oprah?" she coyly asked "Extra's" Terri Seymour.
McCarthy does confirm that she's developing a new daytime talk show with Oprah Winfrey's Harpo Productions, but can't give the full deets. "I have a deal with Harpo, that's all I can say. It definitely has my own spin on things -- and hopefully you'll just use that part."
CNN's Larry King and his pal Ryan Seacrest hosted the "Larry King Live: Disaster in the Gulf: How You Can Help" Telethon Monday night -- raising $1.8 million to help clean up the nation's worst environmental disaster.
"Extra" was there to document the many A-listers lending a hand, including Cameron Diaz, Nicole Richie, Kathy Griffin, Jenny McCarthy, Chelsea Handler and more.
