What tops most girls to-do lists the minute they get engaged? Hitting the nail salon for the perfect mani to match their new bling, of course. Jenny McCarthy, who just announced her engagement to Donnie Wahlberg Wednesday, made sure her tips were freshly painted — though no nail art could distract us from that new mega-carat engagement ring sitting pretty on her left hand.

The View co-host shared her exciting news on air while showing off her sparkler to the other hosts. “It’s a yellow sapphire,” she said of the bauble, which looks to be 5-plus carats (if we had to guess) and is surrounded by a halo of diamonds. (Get an up-close look at the bauble — and her hot-pink Sally Hansen manicure — above.)

McCarthy couldn’t contain her excitement on set, jumping around as she flaunted her rock. Wahlberg — who proposed to his girlfriend of less than a year last weekend with the help of her son Evan — even made a surprise appearance to kiss his bride-to-be. But the couple isn’t in a rush to head down the aisle. “We don’t know yet,” she responded when pressed by her co-hosts about a wedding date.

While we wait for more answers (and imagine some gowns we’d like to see McCarthy wear — not to mention the New Kids On the Block set list that will inevitably be performed at their reception), we’re going to add the star to our celebrity wedding calendar, which is really starting to fill up — Kim Kardashian, Mila Kunis, Lauren Conrad, Olivia Wilde, Jamie Chung … the list goes on.

What do you think of McCarthy’s ring? Do you like her colorful stone, or are you a fan of the classic diamond? Share your thoughts below!

First, I believe the question was what do you think of the ring, NOT what do you think of her. Secondly, the ring is gorgeous. As for classical diamond question, there are so many choices available. I went with an emerald center stone.

What a gaudy ring. What is it that these people buying these Hugh stone’s. The marriages rarely last long enough to get to the value of the ring out of it.

Good for them…I hope they will be very happy. Don’t like the ring, though. Too big and wrong colour.

I knew they would get married. I could see it, how much they seem to love each other. I am happy for them. Congrats!!!!!!! I think the ring is a real sparkler, looks great.

hey you on

Yuck and she has old lady hands

Had more pr*cks than a porcupine? She’s had exactly 4 relationships (including Wahlberg) since she left school. Look it up. You’ve probably had more in your life time. She got her bad reputation from modeling for playboy magazine, not from sleeping with a ton of men.

I’m not sure if this is an article about Jenny McCarthy getting engaged or a Sally Hanson ad.
