Jenny McCarthy

Former Playboy model Jenny McCarthy is apparently being lined up to replace chat show host Oprah Winfrey

Jenny McCarthy could be the next Oprah Winfrey.

The 32-year-old former Playboy model is apparently being lined up as a replacement for the chat show legend after it was revealed she "has a development deal with Winfrey's Harpo Productions".

Jenny, who split with funnyman Jim Carey in April this year, has been confirmed as a member of the company by a Harpo spokesperson.

The spokesperson told the New York Post: "We do not have anyone taking over for Oprah. We do have a development deal with Jenny McCarthy. We are exploring possibilities across a number of platforms."

Jenny started her career in 1993 when she posed on the cover of Playboy for $20,000.

She later began her career as TV host with MTV dating show 'Singled Out' before appearing in a number of films including 'Scary Movie 3' and 'John Tucker Must Die.'

She gave birth to her son Evan Joseph in 2002 and he was diagnosed as having autism three years later. Jenny has since them become an activist in promoting the belief that vaccines cause autism.
