With her TV show "The Jenny McCarthy Show" coming to VH1 this spring, Jenny McCarthy pitched in on promotions by covering the January/February 2013 issue of Shape.

The 40-year-old Playboy blonde bombshell showed off her beach bod for the front page while dishing to the mag about everything from her love life to her diets.

Highlights from Miss McCarthy's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Shape!

On dating:
"I’ve gone on some dates, but I’m really taking a time-out for me at the moment. One thing I realized in my past relationships is that I’m the best damn girlfriend ever. I put so much energy into my boyfriends and their needs. If I gave myself that same kind of attention, who knows where I’d be at my life at this point? So for now, I’m putting everything I’ve got into my talk show and being a great mom."

On her new show:
"I’m scared and excited about it at the same time. Because it’s for an adult audience, the producers are giving me free rein and have asked me to push the envelope, I get to be my true, dirty self."

On her glutton and milk free diet:
"That’s the best health change I’ve ever made. I lost a few pounds and have much more energy. My new favorite thing is my soup diet. I make a ton of nutritious ones, like butternut squash and vegetable. When I want to drop 5 pounds quickly, I eat them for every meal for about 10 days."
