Star Mom: Jenny McCarthy


Do you miss being the childless party girl of 10 years ago?
Not for a second. Now I have a 5:15 screaming wakeup call '- so I guess the only thing I really miss is sleeping in. But he makes up for anything else I might miss. I am single again, though! I tell people I'm only single on Saturday nights.

Googling you for research is something else! Do you ever worry about your son uncovering all those sexy photos?
I don't care if he sees pictures. I'm going to teach him that it's just boobs. Words are different though '- I am going to have to monitor what he reads. I don't mind taking a beating; I just don't want him to see his mom taking a beating.

Your son's named Evan. What's your take on all the crazy celebrity baby names these days?
Celebrities are pretty creative, eccentric people to begin with&#8230 but I think it's weird, and I wouldn't name my kid Banana. It's like, "Jenny just gave birth to a seven-pound Green Pepper!"

Any traits of yours you hope he inherits?
Definitely my sense of humor. When guys have a sense of humor, it can get them laid. At three years old, though, he can wait a while for that.

Any that you hope he doesn't?
My stubbornness. I'll tell him, you have to take another bite of waffles before we go, and he'd sit there for three hours if I'd let him, just to show he doesn't have to.

What about the future? More kids, more books?
Not sure about more kids, definitely more books. We'll do a Dating Laughs, a Puberty Laughs, a My Husband's Dead, Now What Do I Do? Laughs. And when Oprah's tired, I'm going to slip into her chair and take over.
