Today's Evil Beet Gossip

MY GOD NO!!!

Super-amazing-adorable power-couple Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy have called it quits on their five-year union.

My first reaction to the news was, “What? Fuck, this is way late for an April Fools’ gag and it’s not even all that chuckalicious to begin with” and then I saw that both parties Tweeted the news. I’ve found out the hard way, if it’s on Twitter, it’s gotta be true:

Carrey’s Twitter: Jenny and I have just ended our 5yr relationship. I’m grateful 4 the many blessings we’ve shared and I wish her the very best! S’okay! ?;^>

McCarthy’s Twitter: Im so grateful for the years Jim and I had together. I will stay committed to Jane and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart.

What happened?! This, from the couple who publicly swapped bathing suits on the beach?

Does anything good ever last?!

      • Are you kidding me? If you have autism, is is obviously high-functioning. Did you know that 50-70% of people who are autistic have an IQ of 35-50? Or that 50% of autistic people will never develop verbal language skills? Have you seen the suffering of children with autism, who won’t be touched and can’t communicate?

        Lucky for you, your autism is not a handicap to your life. Most people with autism don’t have that much luck. I’m not saying that Jenny McCarthy has all the answers (or any), but I am saying it’s wrong to minimize the seriousness of the disorder.

      • Did you know there are childhood conditions that are much more dangerous to children than autism? I have a child with Chiari Malformation (yeah look it up – it’s not autisim so it’s not the OMG it’s the end of the world “condition”). It can’t be cured, it can only be treated and it’s a hell on earth procedure to help these kids. But alas, when it’s in the news it’s pushed to the back page because it just doesn’t rank as important as autism. Got it.

      • Brilliant argument! Next time my brother (who has autism) is banging his head against the wall in frustration at not being able to communicate, I’ll reassure him that it could be worse.

  • you want to have more fun with the white s i n gl es, hot,sex y beauties. …It takes only a few minutes to submit a profile which, however, will bring a lot of fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. [_www.A G E R O M A N C E com_]= == free to join C’MON NOW!!!

  • you know, this actually bums me out. i’m not her biggest fan, but i thought they looked like a nice pair..

  • Not a fan of her (mostly because the Autism thing; personally I think she’s nuts) but they seemed like a great couple.

  • Maybe Jim finally wised up to the fact that he was involved with a self-centered, self-important crackpot.

  • This is sad. But I also just want to say that I have a son with autism, and I’ve read some of her books. We have tried some of the treatments she advocates (after tons of additional research and visits with various doctors), and though my son isn’t cured, he’s done so much better. Changing his diet had the most dramatic effect on him–within weeks. If I didn’t go through this personally I would have thought she was nuts too, but there are things you can do for some kids to lessen the effects of autism dramatically. We do everything we can–traditional behavior therapy, occupational therapy, diet + supplements, etc. and I’ve seen all of it help him. I did vaccinate my son, however. Anyway, I agree with a lot of her message, if not all of it. You can’t blame her as a mother for doing everything she could to help her son. So I guess you can call me crazy too. :)

    • My son is 18, has a girlfriend, is in college and holds a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and, oh yeah, is autistic. Trust your judgment. Feed him right. Give him the best family life that you are able. He will be just fine.

  • I think Jenny wanted more kids. I think Jim was partial to the idea until he found he was going to be a grandpa. Jenny thought she’d be okay with but realized how much she wanted more kids. Jim said no way that his kid and grandkid would b the same ago. So two arrived at splittsville.

  • ***age*** not ago.

    That’s just my opinion. My partner and I talked of kids (he was ten years older with a teenage daughter) when his daughter came home pregnant, that kaiboshed any kids with us and that kaiboshed our relationship.

  • I don’t think Jenny wanted more kids. She’s said many times that autism has kicked her ass. She just tweeted around Easter that she had some extra eggs if anyone wanted them because she wouldn’t be using hers… (talking about fertility)

    His tweets have been anti organized religion lately. I think all the Catholicism news has gotten under his skin. To me, his tweets have seemed almost manic. He may be going through something…. I have often wondered if he had manic depression.

    Or Maybe they just got bored. It happens.

    I’m sad for them though. I thought they made a good couple. I also thought it was interesting that she said she’d be there for his adult daughter yet nobody mentioned her son……

    • he is severely bi-polar and has been quite outspoken about it in the past. he has said that his relationships have suffered a lot because of his disease and the amounts of medication (namely, lithium) that he has to take to keep him centered.

      this whole thing sucks…

    • hrm. I wonder if her no-medication healing powers conflicted with his dude-I-gotta-have-my-meds-or-I’m-toast eventually got the best of them.

  • Maybe he wanted his grandchild to be vaccinated so deadly diseases could be prevented? That would totally piss her off. She may not be able to cure autism a 2nd time!

  • OH my god, I love your post very much , i love you , I will come back here every day, so beautiful …. ***meetingrich.com***

  • Hey Jess – you do that. And the next time my son stops breathing at night because of the apnea that the Chiari causes, I won’t try to rouse him, and be thankful he’s not autistic. He’s too small for a CPAP machine so don’t bother suggesting that to me. AUTISM IS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD – THAT’S ALL I’M TRYING TO SAY. Whether you believe it or not – YES there ARE things that are MUCH worse. And I’m not ignorant enough to think that Chiari is the end of the world either. Parents/families with autistic children need to stop thinking they are the only ones dealing with scary issues.

  • Hey Jess – you do that for your brother. And the next time my son stops breathing at night (during one of his as many as 40 “episodes” a night) because of the sleep apnea brought on by Chiari, I won’t try to rouse him. I’ll just be thankful it’s not autism and let it go. FYI – he’s too little for a CPAP machine so don’t bother suggesting one. People need to grasp the fact that autism is NOT the worst thing a family has to deal with. I’m not ignorant to the fact that Chiari isn’t the worst thing a family has to deal with, either. I know there are problems much much worse. I just wish parents/families of children with autism could admit the same thing.

  • Not the end of the world: Way to stereotype an entire group of people. My son has autism. It’s not the end of the world. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. What is this, a competition for who has it harder?
