Jenny McCarthy, a nursing school dropout, combined her 1994 Playboy Playmate Of The Year win, her gregarious personality, and tendency to overshare to ensure herself a multi-platform career. She became known as more than a pretty face and a set of fake boobs cohosting MTV's dating show, "Singled Out," from 1995-97. She graduated to her own MTV variety show, NBC sitcom, and a short-lived movie career. She met director John Asher on the set of "Diamonds" (1999) and they married months later. They welcomed son Evan in 2002, which inspired her first three books "Belly Laughs," "Baby Laughs" and "Life Laughs."
