Jenny McCarthy in 'final stages' of talk show deal

Another "New Year’s Rockin' Eve," another opportunity for Jenny McCarthy to make us laugh by doing the unexpected.

You may recall that during last year’s “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest," McCarthy was a reporter roaming the streets of New York. She wound up kissing who we thought was a random man, but it turned out to be her boyfriend at the time.

“Last year turned out to be an incredible experience for me,” McCarthy says. “It was like a bucket list dream come true.”

But as she gets ready for this year's event, there are some considerations to make. “I’m still single right now, so who knows if I will be kissing someone at midnight?” she wonders.

Besides resuming her reporting gig on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest,” the former Playboy Playmate will be starting the new year with a talk show deal.

“I’m in final negotiations for my talk show. I’m 99 percent there. Literally we are in the final stages of [inking] the deal,” says McCarthy. “It will have a little bit of celebrity and just a lot of fun.”

McCarthy also aims to have a talk show that will “empower women," she continues. "I want to have a connection with women for a higher purpose.”

The mother of one admits that she was offered the chance to be in a reality show, to which she said thanks but no thanks. “I don’t necessarily like airing ALL of my garbage,” she says. “I’m a little bit more of a platform giver.”

    I do not even know the way I ended up here, however I assumed this publish used to be great. I do not understand who you are however definitely you're going to a well-known blogger for those who aren't already. Cheers!

    She had a show on NBC – barely lasted the year! I guess some people don't learn from history.

    She actually is a phenomenal interviewer and has a great sense of humor. I think she'll be a great talk show host.

    Wonder what would happen if George Clooney was given a talk show? Might actually have something interesting to watch instead of another talk show 'empowering' women to take control over their orgasms! No Im not a lesbian, just tired of all the nonsense that everyone sees as suitable talk show fare!

    Considering the damage this woman has done with her anti-vacination hysteria, more TV time is the last thing she should be given.
