Jenny McCarthy brushes off new romance reports

Model-turned-actress JENNY McCARTHY has dismissed reports she has found a new boyfriend just weeks after splitting from footballer BRIAN URLACHER.

The busty blonde ended her four-month romance with Chicago Bears linebacker Urlacher in August (12), but an article on Eonline.com on Thursday (25Oct12) suggested she had bounced back from her heartache by embarking on a new relationship with celebrity jeweller Pascal Mouawad.

McCarthy has brushed off the claims via her Twitter.com blog, insisting the rumor is not true and she's "still single and happy about it".

The Two and a Half Men star also revealed to fans that she is currently too ill to date - because her extensive promotional tour for her new autobiography, Bad Habits: Confessions of a Recovering Catholic, has left her with a throat infection.

She tweets, "I'm in bed with strep throat. Was a long book tour and finally caught up with me. Boo."
