Jenny McCarthy Scores Co-Host Gig on The View—And Dates With Donnie Wahlberg!
The two are reportedly dating after sparks first flew between them during Donnie’s March appearance on Jenny’s VH1 talk show, The Jenny McCarthy Show, and their conversation turned to how the actor liked to talk dirty in bed.
“Some guys do it wrong,” Jenny pointed out.
“Yeah, I don’t do it wrong,” Donnie responded.
“Let’s just say we visually give 50 Shades of Grey a run for its money,” Jenny later wrote online. “It gets steamy. I mean like really steamy. Being turned on by a guy is always fun but to have it legitimately happen to you on TV is to be turned back into a 12-year-old. By the time we get into the groundbreaking interview, my face turns fifty shades of RED.”
Time will tell if Jenny and Donnie’s fledgling relationship can stay white hot or just fizzles out due to their skyrocketing careers.
ABC has just announced that Jenny will be leaving VH1 and joining The View as co-host now that Elisabeth Hasselbeck has departed for Fox & Friends. “Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor,” Barbara Walters said in a statement. “She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view.”
While Jenny is getting used to her gig, Donnie will be busy working on a new show as well.
Heard #BLUEBLOODS is on right now! Reminds me, I start shooting again in a week! While still touring! Thats when 3 hours of sleep becomes 1.
