Jenny McCarthy has found a new man in Las Vegas.
He’s Jason Toohey, a former fitness model and cast member in the pirate show at Treasure Island. They’ve been living together in Las Vegas for two months, McCarthy’s rep told People magazine’s Mark Gray.
McCarthy, the former Playboy Playmate of the Year who split with actor Jim Carrey in April, was with Toohey at the Midsummer Night’s Dream lingerie party at the Palms on Saturday, which she hosted.
But Toohey remained in the shadows during her red carpet appearance. A spy told me they were seen walking away, hand in hand, after the red carpet scrum. McCarthy has a son and Toohey a daughter.
Toohey, 35, is listed as founder of Eyedews, an under-eye mask treatment. McCarthy has not only been promoting the product via Twitter but had Eyedews logo placed in the background of the red carpet at the Palms Pool & Bungalows.
She told the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s Doug Elfman last week that she rented a house in Las Vegas while a new home is being built for her in Los Angeles.
