Jenny McCarthy gushes about her new boyfriend, sports agent Paul Krepelka, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday (January 12).
The 38-year-old star talked about kissing Paul during a televised New Year’s Eve special but pretended he was a random guy (watch below).
Jenny explained, “Everyone thought, ‘Oh my god. She kissed a random dude.’ But no, it was the boy that I’m currently seeing named Paul who I like a lot. He’s very sweet.”
He doesn’t live in L.A. like Jenny though!
“I decided to import this time because I wasn’t doing a very good job with LA guys,” Jenny shared. “These L.A. dudes had more make up in their purse than me. They’d literally pull out their knapsack of concealers and I’m like, it’s time to look outside of LA. I found a boy. I went on some blind dates. He was my 5th blind date.”
She added, “The first blind dates were these really bizarre dudes that were like, ‘Do you know Sharon Stone?” And I’m sitting on a date going, ‘Well, I know of her. I’ve seen her in movies.’ ‘Well, you think you can get an autograph?’ I’m like, ‘Oh my god.’”
So who was Jenny and Paul‘s matchmaker?
Jenny answered, “My sister was the one who turned me on to Paul who’s a sports agent and lives in Boston. His accent is so strong it’s like Good Will Hunting strong that I really can’t understand anything he says to me. He could’ve proposed to me and I could’ve said yes by now and I have no idea. And I’m really happy.”
