Getting playful on the panel during the show, Barbara Walters said to the 41-year-old beauty, "You tried out to be a ‘Bachelorette’ and you did not make it!"

Jenny laughed, saying, "No one knows that!" later stating that she was "lonely" after her divorce from ex-husband, John Asher, claiming that she "needed to be loved."

Of the experience, the former Playmate said, "I did this show called Singled Out on MTV back in the day, so I knew that if I thought it would be great because I was single and I love TV, so put those together and brilliant."

Jenny also stated, "So I got my agent to call ABC and say I wanted to be the new 'Bachelorette' and they said, 'No we’re not using celebrities at this time.' That was 10 years ago." And the rest is history!
