Jenny McCarthy has been mostly single since splitting from Jim Carrey in 2010, but it looks like she has found a new beau in former New Kids on the Block member Donnie Wahlberg.

Jenny McCarthy Jenny McCarthy has discovered she can use her new talk show as a dating service, and it looks like it's helped her find a new boyfriend. People magazine is reporting that McCarthy and one of her former guests are now something of an item.

Donnie Wahlberg, star of Blue Bloods and former New Kid on the Block, appeared on McCarthy's VH1 show back in March, and the conversation went to places not normally safe for TV.

"Do you talk dirty while you're having sex?" McCarthy asked Wahlberg on the show while the two sucked on red lollipops.

"I do," he replied.

"You do — but some guys do it wrong," she responded.

"Yeah, I don't do it wrong," he teased.

The 40-year-old actress was so impressed by the appearance that she talked about Wahlberg in her blog.

"Let's just say we visually give 50 Shades of Grey a run for its money," she wrote. "It gets steamy. I mean like really steamy. Being turned on by a guy is always fun but to have it legitimately happen to you on TV is to be turned back into a 12-year-old. By the time we get into the groundbreaking interview, my face turns fifty shades of RED."

After Wahlberg's appearance, the actor may still have been on McCarthy's mind. She talked to People about using her show to meet guys.

"I'm hoping to meet some on my talk show," McCarthy said. "I keep telling my producers to book some cute, heterosexual single men."

It's not clear how the actors' schedules will affect their blossoming new romance. McCarthy may be joining The View, and Wahlberg will return to shooting Blue Bloods very soon. Friday, he tweeted about returning to the set:

"Heard #BlueBloods is on right now! Reminds me, I start shooting again in a week! While still touring! Thats when 3 hours of sleep becomes 1."
