Jenny McCarthy Does Playboy At 39

After almost 20 years since her first appearance in the magazine, Jenny McCarthy graces the cover of Playboy once again this month. The July/August issue, unveiled today, features Jenny’s seventh nude pictorial for Hugh Hefner’s famous magazine. Not bad for a woman who turns 40 in a few months. “I’m really proud of it,” the host of NBC’s Love in the Wild told People magazine. “The pictures are really gorgeous and classy. They could be out of W magazine. They’re really elegant. It’s probably a lot more sophisticated than a lot of the stuff you’d see of people with their clothes on.”

We wouldn’t go as far as to say they’re suitable for W, but the photos are pretty impressive, and at the very least, they make for good motivation to hit the gym. Jenny even admits to getting in shape for the shoot. “The one thing I like about Playboy is [that the women in it] don’t have the anorexic look… The women are voluptuous. So I didn’t really want to diet. I just wanted to tone up.”
