"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.
Jenny McCarthy took to her Twitter this week to address rumors that she kissed a mystery man in Las Vegas. Stacy Keibler tweeted that she would love to play beer pong with Betty White.
Check out what other celebs tweeted this week.
Actress Jenny McCarthy claims Steven Seagal once demanded she take off her dress during an audition.
CBS News' Crimesider reports the former Playboy Playmate gave an interview to Movieline magazine in 1998, saying Seagal asked her to strip at a casting call for "Under Siege 2," threatening her if she told anyone.
It looks like Jennifer Love Hewitt is quickly recovering from her recent breakup with actor Jamie Kennedy. The comely actress has been spotted out and about with actor/director John Asher, Jenny McCarthy's ex-husband.
"They are dating," a source tells People. "They've been spending a lot of time together and are having fun. He showers her with attention and is helping her move on from her breakup with Jamie."
In a surprising split, "Extra" has confirmed Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey have called it quits after five years.
Carrey's rep tells "Extra," "Jim and Jenny have recently decided to end their five-year relationship. They are grateful for the many blessings they have shared and wish each other the very best."
Jenny McCarthy had her breasts redone to make them smaller, she admits.
"Women have to get their 'tires rotated,' so to speak, every ten years, so I never had them fully removed, but I had them taken out and replaced only because I couldn't fit into normal dress sizes," McCarthy tells Fox News.
She continues, "I had to buy dresses in a bigger size and have them taken in so I just decided to get them taken down a bit. The boobs got a little droopier because of it, so there is a yin and yang to everything. But I feel better in my clothes."
McCarthy also opens up about her struggle to lose weight after giving birth to son Evan, now 7.
"I was 211 pounds when I delivered my son, so I know what it is like to be obese and fat and miserable," says the Jenny Craig spokeswoman. "I'm 5'6, so it was a tough thing to carry around; losing it is something I'm very proud of."
She says there's no real shortcut to dropping pounds.
"It took me a good year to fit back into my jeans, but it's all diet and exercise. There is really no magic pill; they are the two things you absolutely have to do to maintain good shape," she says.
She says she didn't have to work out in her 20s, but in her 30s, "it's a mandatory thing."
In addition to working out, "I eat a lot of soups and salads; I puree a lot of vegetables because there is still protein in vegetables. I love spinach salads with nuts so it's mainly vegetables," she says. "When I PMS, I notice I need extra protein, so I eat fish. Exercise is Bikram yoga and treadmill running like 'Hamster.'"
Her dream figure?
"Right now I want Lady Gaga's body," McCarthy admits. "I'm obsessed."
And even though she's 37, "I would absolutely pose for Playboy," she says. "I would be so flattered if they asked me. It's probably not going to happen, but I think I want to do it again."
