Jenny with Beach Ball," "Jenny on Motorcycle," "Jenny in Blue Silk." These are just a few of the 11,000-plus pictures devoted to Jenny McCarthy, 24, on the World Wide Web. With an irresistible blend of hormonal humor and sly wit, the cohost of MTV's popular Singled Out, a mosh-pit kind of Dating Game, keeps viewers and Net surfers glued to their screens. "When I look at myself, I don't see an abundance of talent," she says with characteristic frankness. "But you look at me and you can tell I'm having the time of my life." Her game attitude has paid off. McCarthy's 1997 calendar is flying off shelves, and she has played small roles in The Stupids and Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead. She leaves Singled next month for a new MTV variety show, which she describes as "kind of like Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous on acid." Says Singled cohost Chris Hard-wick: "I'll miss her. She's smarter than the factory-cranked-out polymer models who've been sculpted by modern science." McCarthy, who shares an L.A. house with beau and manager Ray , admits that she has been affected by all the attention. "I don't have the same amount of time to get my nails done," she says. "Just look at my toes. Isn't that sick?" It doesn't look like they'll be polished any time soon. Last February. McCarthy consulted a psychic who, she says, "told me, 'You think this year is great, just wait till next year. It's going to explode.' "
