Jenny McCarthy dished about how she dropped pounds to fit into her custom Ines Di Santo wedding gown with the help of SkinnyStix. SkinnyStix is a powder you pour into water to boost energy and lose weight. McCarthy said that with the help of the appetite suppressant, her wedding dress was “a little bit baggy.” You can find out more about SkinnyStix at Zantrex3.com.
The newlywed is moving onto bigger and better things than daytime TV - dirtier, sexier, funnier things. Her Sirius XM show Dirty, Sexy, Funny starts back up in October on Stars Channel 109 Monday through Friday at 10 a.m. - the time slot right after Howard Stern. McCarthy told us, “Obviously there is not a better lead-in than Howard Stern in radio. And I guess by following him, it leaves me to go anywhere I want.” McCarthy will be covering topics from sex to humor to dating, marriage, and more. “I wanna kind of always keep it open. Even revenge on your exes, stuff like that.” -- Uh oh, watch out Jim Carrey! Previous episodes of McCarthy's Sirius XM show are currently available On Demand on the Sirius XM app and feature guests like Howard Stern, Perez Hilton, Chelsea Handler, Jason Biggs and her new husband Donnie Wahlberg. The show is very raunchy and certainly lives up to its name. McCarthy is one “dirty bird” - check it out.
McCarthy is also in the midst of a Dirty, Sexy, Funny comedy tour she put together with all female comedians with the blessing of the late Joan Rivers. Rivers praised McCarthy for giving female comedians a platform with this tour. McCarthy told Hollywood.com: “She really appreciated it because she did the same thing. She cheered women on.… I, like everybody, miss her already dearly.”
The Dirty, Sexy, Funny comedy tour will be in Clearwater, Florida, on September 20, Las Vegas on September 26, and Detroit on October 17. Click here to checkout the full list of tour dates and to buy tickets to a show near you. McCarthy said it best, “These chicks are funny.… Come and enjoy it.”
Fun fact: McCarthy’s favorite show is Bar Rescue on Spike TV. Lookout for the show's host Jon Taffer as a potential future guest on McCarthy's Sirius XM show.
When I first heard of Bar Rescue, I lumped it into the group of shows that dads love — you know: American Pickers, Storage Wars, and Pawn Stars. (Partially because my dad absolutely loves it and all those other shows.) But after watching a couple episodes, I realized I was hooked.
Bar Rescue is a reality show on Spike TV that stars Jon Taffer, who goes around to different failing bars in the country where he offers his professional expertise, brings in other experts of the industry, then renovates the bar — all in an attempt to rescue the bar. But that’s not the best part.
Sometimes, more often than not, Taffer also counsels the dysfunctional workers of each bar, which can lead to a lot of drama. Seriously, there are catfights, screaming matches, insult wars, and all-out brawls between coworkers.
While the major drama of the episodes is awesome, it’s also really interesting to see how these different bars and restaurants are operated — especially if you’ve worked in the industry before. It’s fun to yell at the screen when the employees admit that they haven’t cleaned the bar in months or when they serve their tables all wrong because you know better. (They don’t even wipe down the bar!? What are they doing?)
Still, whether you have experience working at a bar/restaurant or not, Bar Rescue makes you think you could probably run your own bar without running it into the ground. Which might be a bad thing, because it often has me quoting Ted and Barney from How I Met Your Mother: “We should buy a bar!” Actually, no, we probably shouldn’t.
