Jenny McCarthy has tried online dating, blind dates and fix-ups, but now she has a new idea about how to meet eligible bachelors.
"I'm hoping to meet some on my talk show," McCarthy, 40, says of her new, self-titled VH1 gig. "I keep telling my producers to books some cute, heterosexual single men."
The idea to merge work and dating came from a friend and fellow talk show host, Chelsea Handler. "She told me book who you want to date," the former Playboy cover girl told PEOPLE at a fundraiser for Generation Rescue, her autism non-profit organization, at Studio Paris in Chicago on Tuesday.
But so far, the producers haven't come through. "Time and time again we're not getting them," said McCarthy, who arrived at the event in a black and white dress, gold-studded high-heel sandals and pink streaks in her blonde hair.

She may be the dance pro, but Julianne Hough lets Josh Duhamel take the lead in their new romance, Safe Haven.
The Dancing with the Stars vet, 24, plays a woman with a mysterious past who falls for Duhamel's character, a widower with two young kids.
The film, which hits theaters on Valentine's Day – of course! – is based on the 2010 bestseller by reigning romance author Nicholas Sparks.
