Actress and comedienne Jenny McCarthy celebrated her fabulous 40th birthday and Halloween at Gallery Nightclub in Planet Hollywood on Wednesday evening.
Dressed as -- what else? -- a sexy cougar, McCarthy, who is rumored to be in consideration for the role of Bo Peep in nearby “Peepshow,” celebrated the milestone birthday and holiday with her sister and girlfriends while enjoying Lemon Drops, Bacardi, Don Julio 1942, Corona and Moet champagne.
The blonde bombshell, who has never looked better, was presented with a birthday cake as a confetti cannon went off in the boutique nightspot. She judged the costume contest; finalists included Teletubbies and a zipper-faced zombie, but the grand prize when to the Transformer -- robots in disguise! -- Bumblebee. Before Gallery, McCarthy and her group dined at Public House in the Venetian, with McCarthy raving about the food and drinks.
McCarthy, a Playboy Playmate of the Year, recently dated Brian Urlacher of the Chicago Bears and was in a longtime relationship with actor and comedian Jim Carrey. Thanks to contributing photographer Carlos Larios for his photo gallery of the beautiful birthday girl.

Catering to the young and modern crowd, Planet Hollywood is a one-stop shop for entertainment with its massive shopping mall, slew of restaurants, spacious casino and clubs.
The ambiance of the casino is retro-chic meets high-tech with black granite floors throughout and colorful LED lights throughout the space. The theme carries into the 100,000 square-foot casino with 250 flat screens topping off slot machines. The casino is also home to 87 tables, a sports book and a poker room.
There's also the Miracle Mile Shops, one Vegas' largest malls, with 140 stores including BCBG Max Azaria, bebe, Urban Outfitters and The Discovery Channel Store.
Following an afternoon of shopping, guests can satisfy their appetites at one of the gourmet restaurants in Planet Hollywood, like the non-traditional approach to steakhouses at Strip House or check out the exotic Far East motif at KOI restaurant and lounge. And if guests are still looking for more, they can spend the after hours at Privé, Triq or Krave nightclubs.
Perhaps one of the resorts biggest attractions came in March with the addition of "Peepshow." The naughty twist on the story of Little Bo Peep is modern-day spin on the run-of-the-mill Vegas topless review. The "Peepshow" stage has seen visiting celebs like Scary Spice Mel B, "Dancing with the Stars" Kelly Monaco and Playboy's Holly Madison.
