Jenny McCarthy photographed by Arny Freytag
Pamela Anderson and Jenny McCarthy—two blonde goddesses who have become dream girls. Did we mention where each got her start? Here on our pages, of course. Both have moved on to show business success and celebrity status, and we're so proud we thought it was time for a pictorial honoring them. Our cover shot of Jenny was taken by Arny Freytag; Pamela's by Stephen Wayda. Our Rabbit always has been a good student; he's one of Jenny's prized pupils.
