The former Playboy Playmate, who's completing her one-year stint on The View, will host a one-hour weekly series on SiriusXM starting this Wednesday.

The series, called Dirty, Sexy, Funny With Jenny McCarthy, will cover topics such as parenting, sex, dating and marriage and will include celebrity guests.

Chelsea Handler, Perez Hilton and McCarthy's fiance, Donnie Wahlberg, are already scheduled to appear.

"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," McCarthy said in a statement. "You can bet your sweet ass this show will live up to its title."

SiriusXM Radio president and chief content officer Scott Greenstein added: "Jenny's no holds barred style and playful personality is sure to entertain listeners. We are excited to welcome her and offer her a platform to have uncensored, unscripted conversations about the topics she's passionate about."

The live, limited-run show will air each Wednesday, starting July 16, at 6 p.m. ET.

It was recently announced that McCarthy is leaving The View at the end of this season, along with longtime panelist Sherri Shepherd, as the show undergoes a major facelift. ABC already announced that Rosie O'Donnell will fill one of the empty chairs next season, but the network is likely looking for more panelists, since O'Donnell and moderator Whoopi Goldberg are the only names attached for the show's 18th run.
