Jenny McCarthy has revealed what her next gig will be following her departure from The View.

McCarthy announced Monday during an appearance on Good Morning America that she will be hosting an exclusive limited-run, live show on SiriusXM.

The new show entitled, Dirty, Sexy, Funny with Jenny McCarthy, will reportedly feature the fearlessly frank star discussing topics such as parenting, sex, dating and marriage, and of course, chats with celebrity guests and friends.

"It's no secret that I love to talk. I'm excited to do it on SiriusXM without having to interrupt anyone or keep things clean. You can bet your sweet ass this show will live up to its title," McCarthy said in a statement.

Confirmed guests on her new show include Chelsea Handler, Perez Hilton and her fiancé, Donnie Wahlberg.

Last week, McCarthy confirmed her exit from The View, and told fans to stay tuned for news of her future plans.

"So grateful to have worked with Barbara Walters in her last year, as well as many producers and co-hosts, and after much consideration, I've taken a new job that will allow me to do what I do best -- which is talk without having to interrupt anyone," she said on the June 7 episode of The View. "I will be announcing it in the next few weeks and I couldn't be more grateful for the fans like you guys who supported us, so stay tuned... even if it does compete with The View."

Last week, Rosie O'Donnell's return to The View was confirmed. Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Joy Behar, and Whoopi Goldberg — who will be the only returning host in the fall — have all commented, and McCarthy shared her own thoughts on the controversial move to bring O'Donnell back.

"I love Rosie. I have been a fan of hers forever," she told Us Weekly over the weekend. "I knew they were looking to bring some heat to the table and there is no doubt that with Rosie there will be some heat. They are definitely going in the direction of fire."

"It's going to be some exciting television," McCarthy continued. "I will be there with my beer and popcorn at 11 in the morning. I can't wait to see how it plays out."
