Former Singled Out host Jenny McCarthy recently dropped a bombshell to View co-host Barbara Walters on the ‘reveal your secret’ episode on the Tuesday, Jan. 14, show. “In the interest of information, one of us, that one,” Walters said, pointing to her “you tried out to be a Bachelorette and you did not make it!”

Jenny gasped claiming, “No one knows that!” …. “When I got a divorce, I was lonely. I needed to be loved.” She was referring to her divorce from John Mallory Asher in 2005.
“I was single and I loved TV,” she continued. “Put those together and I thought, ‘Brilliant!’”
The 41-year-old actress even had her agent call ABC. “[My agent] said, ‘She wants to be the new Bachelorette,’” …. “And they said, ‘No, we’re not using celebrities at this time. Sorry.’ That was 10 years ago. So, pfft.”
Wow, who knew ABC had so many suitors!
McCarthy, 41 is now dating NKOTB singer Donnie Wahlberg, 44, so hopefully she will get his final rose after all.
