Jenny McCarthy is CANDID.
She’s a strong, fierce, painfully funny woman, which, let’s be frank, is endearing as hell. Even when we don’t agree with what she’s saying, we always admire how forthright she is with her opinions, particularly when it comes to love and relationships.
Jenny McCarthy has never been afraid to speak her mind, whether it’s on her current Sirius XM show (Dirty, Sexy, Funny) or way back at the beginning of her career. Many of us were first introduced to Jenny on the pages of Playboy — where she became Playmate of the Year — or on the very ‘90s MTV dating show Singled Out.
But even in those early days, her personality and unflinching sense of humor shone through. Quickly, she started appearing on sitcoms, she became one of the panelists on The View, and she even got to host Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve.
But Jenny McCarthy is so much more than just a TV show host. She’s a touring comedian, she’s been in movies, she’s written books (SEVERAL books), she’s the star (along with her husband, Donnie Wahlberg) of her own reality show Donnie Loves Jenny, she’s a mom and an activist. So, to say she’s just on television or just anything really is a HUGE understatement — she’s a total rock star.
I’ll be honest, I’ve been binging on her Sirius talk show since I found out about it because with a host like Jenny, paired with her amazingly open and funny guests, she could talk about anything and I’d be hooked.
Having so much experience in life, relationships, and sex, it’s only natural that she would be someone you would go to for advice, right? She’s completely unafraid to be herself, even if means garnering unwanted attention because no one can do Jenny McCarthy like Jenny can.
And, as someone who is still trying to find out what kind of woman I am, I appreciate people like Jenny who are so at ease being a bombshell, a strong personality, and a mother, all at the same time.
Plus did I mention she was funny? Because when someone passes along wisdom about sex, passion, and parenting, it’s always so much better when they’re funny.
