Jenny McCarthy had asked friends to set her up on blind dates this winter. But they weren’t going so well – until suddenly, one of them went spectacularly.
“The first blind dates were these really bizarre dudes that were like, ‘Do you know Sharon Stone?’ ” McCarthy, 38, says in an interview airing Wednesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “And I’m sitting on a date going, ‘Well, I know of her. I’ve seen her in movies.’ ‘Well, do you think you can get an autograph?’ I’m like, ‘Oh, my god.’ ”
Thankfully, her fifth blind date was with Paul Krepelka, a Boston sports agent. They’ve been dating for five weeks now, and McCarthy jokes that they might already be engaged.
