The blonde bombshell started her new job as a host on The View on Monday and her boyfriend was a guest, but she revealed that she wasn’t sure he was even interested in her at first.
“He was on my talk show for Vh1 and I went a year without dating anybody. So I don’t know if I was really randy or really ready but he was there and I gave him my phone number, which I’ve never given a guy my number but I was interested,” Jenny told Scott & Todd on 95.5 PLJ Radio in New York City on Tuesday.
But he played a game and made her wait, which freaked her out.
“It took two weeks for him to call me back and I thought for sure he was playing for a different team, if you know what I’m saying,” Jenny explained.

She said that she was doing the typical girl worrying, “That’s of course my ego, a girl’s ego, he must be married, he’s gay, What’s wrong?”
He finally dialed her up and Jenny said that “it was really great and we talked for a while. We took it slow.”
Jenny, 40, is a mom to 11-year-old Evan and dated comedian Jim Carrey for five years before splitting in 2010.
She said things are going well with Donnie now, telling Scott & Todd: “I must say it’s been awesome!”
