Jenny McCarthy regretted not wearing any underwear when she hosted the Playboy 50th ANNIVERSARY TV special - because she wanted to leave some panties behind as a souvenir.

The former Playmate was allowed special access to the magazine's boss HUGH Hefner's private quarters at the Playboy Mansion for the two-hour behind-the-scenes show, which aired in America on Sunday (07DEC03).

It meant she got to spend time in Hef's bedroom for the first time - and that's where she discovered the chandelier where the Playboy chief's girlfriends hang their underwear.

A disappointed McCarthy, who has been a pin-up four times in the magazine, said, "Go figure, the day I don't wear any, I can't leave something behind of myself."

And after checking out Hefner's private bathroom and sitting in his empty bath, the married mum-of-one added, "I could be one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends."
