Jenny McCarthy’s comedy show hits Las Vegas!

Jenny McCarthy Hosts "Dirty, Sexy, Funny" Comedy Show

Jenny McCarthy brought her comedy show to Las Vegas last night at the Hard Rock Hotel. She hit the red carpet with her current boyfriend Donnie Wahlberg. Her  “Dirty, Sexy, Funny” comedy show stars Rachel Feinstein, Tiffany Haddish, Tammy Pescatelli and Lynne Koplitz.

According to sources, the purpose of Jenny’s show is to test drive the concept of her all-female comedy showcase.

The Las Vegas Sun caught up with Jenny on the red carpet of the after-party, and asked about her new comedy show.

What is the long-term goal for this production? Do you want to be the producer of a comedy show or a comedy club operator?

“I want to be a little bit of Don King, but the nice version. I think I have a good eye for comedy, more than even doing comedy. There have been times I’ve been in comedy clubs — and I’m a big fan of standup — and there is one girl who stands out for me, who makes me really laugh hard. This has happened, and I’ve thought, ‘What if I put one of each one of those girls I see in a club that I love, under one brand?’ So I created ‘Dirty, Sexy, Funny’ and have premiered it here.”

Your vision is there will always be women in the lineup?

“Always. I want the female point-of-view.”

Where is the show going next?

“I would love a residency in New York. I’d love to go on tour. I’d love to make it huge.”

In Las Vegas, too? There is a lot of comedy in town.

“Oh, (heck) yeah. I would love to have a residency here.”

Holly Madison has told me she is a huge fan of yours. Her quote to me was that when she was a teenager, “I wanted to be Jenny McCarthy. I wanted her exact career.”

“I love Holly. We’ve been friends for a very long time. I respect the (heck) out of her. I’ve been supporting her. I love her. I love hearing that, and I love that she has started a family and is having so much success here.”

I didn’t realize until reading about you today that you’re cousins with Melissa McCarthy.

“Yeah! Right? We’re first cousins.”

You’re close then?

“Yeah, we’re very close. A lot of people don’t realize we’re related. I’m incredibly proud of her and happy for her. If you look closely at the both of us, you can see these happy Irish faces.”

I’ve never understood the Jenny McCarthy thing. She’s pretty – but I find her beyond annoying. MORE PHOTOS AFTER THE JUMP! (more…)

Everyone hates Jenny McCarthy on ‘The View’

Jenny McCarthy Chats For "Extra!" Interview

Jenny McCarthy was brought in by ABC to replace Elizabeth Hasselbeck on ‘The View,’ and as it turns out – no one likes Jenny. I read an article yesterday that said not only the cast doesn’t like Jenny – but neither does the audience. So much, in fact, people are saying they actually miss Elizabeth. You don’t say!

I’ve been saying for years I don’t know how anyone can listen to Jenny. She is BEYOND annoying. I could never watch a talk show that she’s hosting. Never. She drives me crazy.

The View isn’t favorable for Jenny McCarthy! A production source told exclusively that the newest co-host of the ABC morning show’s job is in jeopardy because her big mouth is making viewers tune out.

And incredibly, former Playboy Playmate McCarthy, 40, has proven to be even more unpopular with viewers than the polarizing Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who left The View for Fox News, the production insider revealed.

“ABC has begun doing deep research on Jenny’s work on the show and the initial findings are that viewers want to tune out the second she opens her mouth!” the source told Radar. “The data has revealed that she is FAR more off-putting than Elisabeth.”

Although The View titan Barbara Walters, 84, who is retiring from broadcasting in summer 2014, “isn’t looking for a replacement for Jenny yet, she is obsessed with ratings and the longevity of the show, so Jenny needs to turn it around or she will be gone.”

The source is unclear if McCarthy’s deal is for one year or two, but said that “if Barbara wants her out, they will buy out her contract.

“Right now they’re just trying to adjust Jenny’s performance on the show so that she comes off as more appealing, but that’s an uphill battle.”

According to The Wrap, The View has seen minor dips in total viewership after McCarthy’s debut.

The mother of an autistic son, McCarthy has come under fire by some for her controversial stance that vaccines cause autism.

Only morning show I can handle is Hoda and Kathy Lee. I want to be them when I grow up.

Jenny McCarthy: I Deserve Great and Donnie Wahlberg Is Great

Jenny McCarthy Hosts at 1 OAK Nightclub in Las Vegas

Jenny McCarthy is VERY happy with Donnie Wahlberg, and she wants the world to know! “If every relationship leads you to the next person and it leads you to what you want and what you don’t want, I feel like I deserve great and he’s great,” The View cohost said Saturday while hosting a party at 1 OAK in Las Vegas.

The couple have been dating since early July, and are happier than ever. “It’s new,” she said. “I took a year off [from dating] but I said if I meet someone who makes me stop that year off, it’s someone who I need to pay attention to.”

On Saturday, after McCarthy, 40, and Wahlberg, 44, took in the Boyz II Men concert at Mirage and dinner at Stack, they hit the club with several friends. In the club, the couple danced together, appeared blissfully happy, and seemed unaware of anyone else in the 16,000 square foot space.

At a VIP table above the deejay booth, McCarthy, donning a black long sleeved cocktail dress, sipped a few drinks and clung to her boyfriend and her sister. Aside from a reporter nearby, it was a rare moment of privacy for the best-selling author.

Maybe Donnie’s “the one” after all?

FIRST LOOK: Jenny McCarthy sits with her ‘View’ co-hosts!

It’s official! Jenny McCarthy is coming to ‘The View’!

Today we’re getting our first look at the 40-year-old along her new co-hosts, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Barbara Walters.

Barbara seems excited Jenny’s joining the crew. “She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view,” Walters said of what Jenny might bring to “The View’s” signature table.

I honestly can’t stand Jenny – she just gets under my skin. I think she’s so abrasive and annoying, I’m not sure how anyone listens to her. I don’t watch the View, so I suppose this news doesn’t affect me much.

McCarthy was hired less than a week after Elizabeth Hasselback left after 10 years. She’s moved on to “Fox & Friends.”

Joy Behar has also left the show after 16 years. The new season will premiere on Sept. 9.
