Jenny McCarthy says her new pictorial and cover in the July/August edition of Playboy is "a salute to the MILFs" -- and backs up her words by saying that she's not modest about the shoot in terms of how she'll explain it to her 10-year-old son, Evan.
"I think he can find a lot worse available on the Internet these days," the Chicago stunner, 39, tells People. "I think people make such a big deal sometimes about it, when I feel like it just comes down to how you raise your child and how you explain things to your kid."
Jenny, the ex of A-lister Jim Carrey, says she and "Evan … will have that conversation someday."
Fun fact: Jenny first appeared in Playboy as Miss October 1993.
