Something can be both empowering and way, way, way TMI, right? Actually, now that we think about it…we guess a lot of empowering things are. To wit, Jenny McCarthy‘s decision to stray from the standard issue Playboy style and pose for the magazine au natural. You know, in the pants area? “What’s everything?” the actress said on Today after being asked if she planned on showing “everything” in her photo shoot. “I mean I grew out a bush so nobody sees anything.” Jenny McCarthy: keeping it real, 24/7!
Personally, we love this. We’re not saying Vh1 is about to come out with a strong pro-pubes agenda or anything (we’re still hashing that out with the lawyers), but it is nice to hear that Jenny is doing exactly what she wants to do, rather than changing her look or body or self or downstairs situation to fit some kind of cookie cutter Playboy ideal. On a related note, where would one even get a cookie cutter like that? “I figured [I’d do it] one more time before everything really falls apart,” the Love in the Wild host added about her upcoming appearance in the mag. “Why not? And [my son] Evan‘s tuition was really expensive this year.” Haha, oh boy. What do you think? Is Jenny is holding it down for the ladies, or are you holding your hands over your eyes in repulsion? Or does the whole situation in general make you want to roll your eyes so far back in your head, you can see your brain?
