Jenny McCarthy, former Playboy Playmate and host of her own new show, VH1’s The Jenny McCarthy Show, knows how imperative it is to age gracefully in front of the camera.
“I am Team Botox,” Jenny admits in an exclusive interview in the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands now. “I do it here and there. I use very little, so my face still moves,” she says of the procedure.
And although Jenny says she’s open to getting plastic surgery done in the future, she plans on waiting. “You don’t really need old-fashioned surgery any more with all the lasers and Botox,” she explains. “So I’m not sure I would go under the knife until I’m at least as old as Joan Rivers — like 99 or however old she is!”
Despite her success, Jenny says she’s not the next Oprah — “That’s like saying I’m the next God!” — but being in front of the camera does push her to bring her A-game. “Ninety percent of the way you look is what you eat, so I’m really just cautious. I’ll really fill up on fruits and vegetables,” she explains of her preparation for her upcoming show airing Fridays at 10:30 p.m. “Maybe I’ll guinea pig myself on new [beauty] treatments on the show. I’ll be the rat for America, without going overboard!”
