Jenny McCarthy Talks Justin Bieber on "Good Morning America"

Posted Tuesday October 2, 2012 9:41 PM GMT

On tour to promote her new book, "Bad Habits: Confessions of a Recovering Catholic," Jenny McCarthy stopped at "Good Morning America" in the Big Apple on Tuesday (October 2).

Perhaps coincidentally wearing the same colors as a traditional nun's habit, the 39-year-old former Playmate donned a black pantsuit and a white button-down shirt with matching platform heels.

After taking ABC's JuJu Chang on a tour of her childhood home, which included posters of Jesus rather than celebrities, she admitted "Jesus was my Bieber."

Growing up in a very Catholic family, the Chicago native reveals, "My biggest fear throughout the book is that I was going to be possessed by Satan at any point. I think 'The Exorcist' is a great way the Catholic Church can scare the heck out of you. I replaced my Cabbage Patch dolls with St. Joseph."

From poverty to stardom, how did the blonde bombshell make the leap from aspiring nun to Playboy playmate? She candidly revealed, "It was devastating in my childhood to watch my mom and dad struggle for food, where dinner was gonna come from. When I posed for Playboy, I went home and wrote a check out for all their bills and moved them into the suburbs." Watch the video of Jenny's interview (with a special appearance by Stephen Colbert) below.
