Jenny McCarthy Wanted To Be On 'The Bachelorette' After Divorce

Jenny McCarthy wanted to be 'The Bachelorette' after her divorce from John Mallory Asher but ABC rejected the idea.

Barbara Walters, McCarthy's 'The View' co-host, made the revelation on Tuesday's episode of the talk show.

"In the interest of information, one of us, that one," Walters said pointing to McCarthy, "you tried out to be a Bachelorette and you did not make it."

"No one knows that!," McCarthy said. "When I got a divorce, I was lonely. I needed to be loved."

"I was single and I loved TV," she tried to explain. "Put those together and I thought, 'Brilliant!'"

"My agent said, 'She wants to be the new Bachelorette.' And they said, 'No, we're not using celebrities at this time. Sorry.' That was 10 years ago."

McCarthy, who has been dating Donnie Wahlberg. has hinted that she wants to get married once again.

"I think he would be an amazing husband," the 41-year-old told Bethenny Frankel (photosBethenny Frankel photos) in an interview. "So, if he does propose, yeah, I would sure say yes. I wouldn't be surprised if I was the one proposing."
