Jenny McCarthy getting the Oprah seal of approval, which may include a talk show

Jenny McCarthyBeing Oprah's buddy is never bad for one's career. And like former frequent guest stars Rachael Ray and Dr. Phil, now actress, author and former Playboy playmate Jenny McCarthy is poised to be the next "Big O" thing. She has inked a multiplatform deal with Harpo Productions to develop projects of all different kinds, including a talk show of her very own.

While her career may have started in nudity and comedy, she's more recently become known for her books, and her activism in the fight against autism, which her son has.

I've always liked McCarthy as she's not only beautiful and funny, but very intelligent. It made it easy for her to buck the stereotype of the dumb, hot blonde. She's also incredibly charismatic, which I think will make for a great combination in a talk show host.

I can see her bringing the same sort of humorous vibe to a talk show that Ellen DeGeneres does. She's just so damned likable.
