Jenny McCarthy remembers her granny panties at the Donnie Wahlberg gala

Jenny McCarthy was holding nothing back at the Donnie Wahlberg gala Monday night. The 44-year-old star had no problem showing off a pair of signed, orange and pink printed granny panties to WGN producer Jeff Hoover.

Although not the exact pair, the granny panties were a humorous reminder for McCarthy who says she remembers spending her pregnant days in them and had given Hoover a signed pair in the past.

The star was at the event with her husband Donnie Wahlberg to help raise awareness and support families affected by autism.

McCarthy has been a strong proponent of research into causes and treatment of autism.
