Jenny McCarthy Dating: TV Host Shares What She Looks For In A Date

Posted: Updated:

Single mom Jenny McCarthy has a two-point checklist for any of her potential suitors.

"Number one is, 'Do you like kids?' And number two is, 'Do you have kids?'" the host of VH1's "Jenny McCarthy Show" told People magazine.

McCarthy implemented this test after a recent blind date. She flew to another city to have dinner with a man who, just minutes into the date, talked about how much he despised kids. The kicker? He knew she was a mother before they even went out!

"I didn't even get to the check," the six-time Playboy covergirl told the magazine. "I said, 'Excuse me.' I got up and grabbed my purse and walked out the door and flew home."

McCarthy was previously married to actor and director John Asher. The former couple filed for divorce in 2005 after nearly six years of marriage. They have one child together -- a 10-year-old son.

After the split, McCarthy dated actor Jim Carrey, but the pair parted ways in 2010 after a five years together. In 2012, she was romantically linked to NFL linebacker Brian Urlacher, but they broke up after three months.
