Jenny McCarthy Won't Wax for Upcoming 'Playboy' Spread

The actress jokes that she "grew out a bush so nobody sees anything" when she strips down for the shoot

Jenny McCarthy is ready to pose for Playboy again, but there's one thing the July/August cover model isn't planning to do.

The reality show host is excited about her upcoming photo shoot, but she isn't making it easy for audiences to see every single detail in the nude cover spread. When asked if she plans to show all of her body, McCarthy explained that not waxing down there will make the photos less revealing.

"What's everything?" she said with a laugh during an interview on Today. "I mean I grew out a bush so nobody sees anything."

The 39-year-old Love in the Wild host also detailed her reasons for going through with the Playboy shoot right before she celebrates the big 4-0 in November.

"I figured [I'd do it] one more time before everything really falls apart," she joked. "Why not? And [my son] Evan's tuition was really expensive this year." 

McCarthy also discussed her personal life with the Today hosts. When Kathie Lee Gifford asked McCarthy (who was with ex Jim Carrey for five years) if she thought she'd ever find "true love," the model-turned-actress was candid about her prospects.

"I think I might be there -- almost," admitted McCarthy, who is currently dating Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher.

A new television show, a Playboy spread and a new love? Sounds like turning 40 couldn't happen at a happier time for McCarthy.
