Jenny McCarthy is single and she's hoping that when she launches her upcoming VH1 talk show next year, a certain leading man comes by the couch - Bradley Cooper.
"He's my number-one crush," Jenny told Shape magazine, which features the 40-year-old celeb showing off her toned midriff on its January 2013 cover. "I'm hoping he'll be a guest on my show."
Jenny is currently single, and she told the mag she is focusing on "me" time.
"I've gone on some dates, but I'm really taking a time-out for me at the moment," she told Shape. "One thing I realized in my past relationships is that I'm the best damn girlfriend ever. I put so much energy into my boyfriends and their needs. If I gave myself that same kind of attention, who knows where I'd be at my life at this point? So for now, I'm putting everything I've got into my talk show and being a great mom."
As for that TV talker - "The Jenny McCarthy Show" -- which is coming to VH1, Jenny said it will showcase all sides of her personality.
"I'm scared and excited about it at the same time," she said.
"Because it's for an adult audience, the producers are giving me free rein and have asked me to push the envelope, I get to be my true, dirty self," she added.
Jenny heads into her talk show looking better than ever, the result of a gluten and dairy free diet.
"That's the best health change I've ever made," she said. "I lost a few pounds and have much more energy. My new favorite thing is my soup diet. I make a ton of nutritious ones, like butternut squash and vegetable. When I want to drop 5 pounds quickly, I eat them for every meal for about 10 days."
