McCarthy to Become Oprah's Next Pet Project
Jenny McCarthy has come a long way from the pages of Playboy. The former centerfold has been singled out by Oprah Winfrey as her next protege'. The blonde bombshell, whose resume includes such blockbuster hits as BASEketball, Scary Movie 3, Dirty Love and Witless Protection, has teamed up with Winfrey for a slew of projects -- including her own talk show. Talk about strange bedfellows. Apparently, Winfrey never caught an episode of MTV's The Jenny McCarthy Show where the actress passed gas and forced herself to vomit, among other things. People is reporting that McCarthy is already writing a blog on Oprah.com with her most recent entry focusing on PMS and sugar. Ever since McCarthy began speaking out about son Evan's autism, she's now considered somewhat of an authority on health. She's also written two books: Louder Than Words: A Mother's Journey in Healing Autism and Mother Warriors: A Nation of Parents Healing Autism Against All Odds. If Winfrey's track record holds true, McCarthy could be placed to become the next Rachael Ray or Dr. Phil. Not too shabby for a gal who gained notoriety shaking her moneymakers in front of obnoxious college guys on national television.
