When asked recently if she plans to bare it all, McCarthy, 39, answered without hesitation.
“What’s everything?” she said with a laugh during an interview on Today. “I mean I grew out a bush so nobody sees anything.”
Explaining her reason behind the upcoming racy shoot, the Love in the Wild host says, “I figured [I’d do it] one more time before everything really falls apart. Why not? And [my son] Evan’s tuition was really expensive this year.”
The revelations didn’t stop there.
When asked if she’ll ever find “true love” by co-host Kathie Lee Gifford, McCarthy – who dates Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher – softly admitted, “I think I might be there – almost.”
