Jenny McCarthy joins 'The View'

While the bubbly blonde was touted as Joy Behar's replacement on the ABC talk show, she will MERELY guest-host when the popular presenter leaves after her contract expires in August, while they look for a new co-host. Jenny revealed she is a huge fan of 'The View' but due to her commitments to 'The Jenny McCarthy Show' on VH1, she will be unable to take on the job full time.

She told 'Extra': "I will be helping them while they're looking.

“I can’t [because] I have my own show…maybe someday in the future.”

Jenny recently admitted has a crush on Bradley Cooper, calling the 'Silver Linings Playbook' star a hunk and she issuing an invitation for him to appear on her chat show so she can meet him.

She said: "He's (Bradley) my number-one crush. I'm hoping he'll be a guest on my show."

Unlike Bradley who is dating model Suki Waterhouse, Jenny is currently single and is planning on being on her own for a little while because she thinks she wasted too much time and energy on ex-lovers when she
could have been focusing on her own needs.

The 40-year-old star - who has a 10-year-old son Evan from her marriage to actor-and-director John Mallory Asher and was in a five-year relationship with Jim Carrey - knows she is the "best damn
girlfriend" a guy could have and she wants to wait for a man who deserves her.
