Jenny McCarthy gets ‘Dirty’ after ‘The View’

 

What’s Jenny McCarthy up to after The View? Doing a lot of laughing.

The actress-TV personality is headed to Magic City Casino Saturday night with her comedy show, Dirty, Sexy, Funny. Joining host McCarthy on Stage 305 will be a handful of her most amusing gal pals.

“I handpicked the girls who I really thought had my own brand of humor,” explains the former Playboy Playmate, 41. “They have that raw, crude kind of Chelsea Handler edge. They tell it like it is. Right up my alley.”

Though the cast is all female, guys shouldn’t be afraid to tag along.

“A 50/50 audience is my goal,” McCarthy says. “That’s why we put the word ‘dirty’ in the title. You kind of know what you’re gonna get. We definitely show appreciation for men even though they can be a pain in the a-s.”

Will she miss her old pals on the ABC morning show set? Yes, but the mother of one (who is engaged to Donnie Wahlberg) is stoked for the future.

“I fell in love with [ The View] family,” McCarthy says. “I am so grateful I got to work with Barbara Walters in her last year. But the direction I’m about to go in is a bit different than the show is going, and I decided to roll the dice and move on.”

For tickets to the 8 p.m. show: www.magiccitycasino.com, 305-649-3000. McCarthy will host an after party at E11EVEN Miami; doors open at 10 p.m. For table reservations and to RSVP, call 305-305-6611 or visit www.whatis11.com.

    Attack of Sharknado 2: Oh yeah, there’s another one

    The idea of making a movie about a tornado that scoops up thousands of sharks and sends them flying through the air to chomp their way through a bevy of people, places and things sounds totally ridiculous. That didn’t stop Syfy from moving ahead with Sharknado, a movie that became a pop culture phenomenon last year. The mania reached such a fevered level that a sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, was ordered. It premieres at 9 p.m. Wednesday on Syfy.

    Bachelorette Andi Dorfman: I was attracted to Josh Murray from the beginning

    Bachelorette (no more) Andi Dorfman stopped by Good Morning America on Tuesday to show off her ABC swag (aka engagement ring) from former pro baseball player Josh Murray. The 27-year-old lawyer and her 29-year-old grinning fiance held hands and looked pretty happy. “I definitely knew there was that chemistry and attraction with him,” Dorfman said of their first meeting. “I'm definitely an overthinker, though, so it took me till the very end.” Plus she had to break up with 24 guys first. No wedding date has been set yet; the couple need to do more publicity first.
