'Jenny McCarthy Show': Josh Groban scared off by racy go-go dancers, says host

the-jenny-mccarthy-show-vh1.jpg Jenny McCarthy has a new talk show on VH1 -- but it sounds like the first show did not exactly go off without a hitch.

McCarthy tells Access Hollywood that Josh Groban, the singer who was scheduled to appear as her first guest, bailed on the taping after getting an eyeful of her sexy go-go dancers.

"He did show up, [but] I think the go-go dancers [his team] took a look at and thought they were a little too sexy for their taste," says McCarthy. She adds, "Five minutes before my first show taping, [Josh's] team removed him."

Why does the show have go-go dancers? Because the show should be "like a nightclub."

"I feel like -- even though Jay Leno is sexy and all -- I wanted to bring some sexy girls like you'd see in a nightclub," says McCarthy. "We have a bartender, a DJ, so I thought let's have some go-go dancers, dressed the same as you see in Vegas. Kind of cabaret style."

"The Jenny McCarthy Show" airs Friday nights at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on VH1.
