Jenny McCarthy is adding advice columnist to her résumé.
The former Playboy model will serve as a daily online blogger for her hometown newspaper, The Chicago Sun-Times.
She will also write a weekly print column for the publication's new magazine, Splash.
The column, called Ask Jenny, will answer readers' questions on topics including love, sex, parenting, friendship and fitness, USA Today reports.
"Not only is [the Sun-Times] something that I grew up reading, but I just feel honoured," Jenny said in a statement, insisting it was "a privilege" to be asked.
News of her appointment came after Jenny moved back to Chicago earlier this year.
Shortly thereafter, she began writing a monthly charity column for the tabloid.
Her editors at the time were so impressed they asked her to extend her talents to other areas of the publication.
"When I first began editing Jenny's pieces, I was astounded at how smart and funny her writing was - she has a natural gift," Splash editor Susanna Negovan said in a statement.
"I can't wait for our readers to discover what I already know: She has a voice that will charm them."
