Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg might elope

No one cared about their dating relationship or their engagement, so now Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are resorting to more drastic measures to get our attention: they’re claiming they might elope so as to guarantee a “small” wedding and less attention from the press.  I see what you did there, guys! Reverse psychology!

From US Weekly:

“I’d like a small wedding,” Wahlberg told Us. “A perfect wedding for me would be Jenny, myself, and our three boys.” (This will be the second marriage for both stars. McCarthy, 41, was previously married to director John Mallory Asher, with whom she shares son Evan. Wahlberg, 44, shares two sons, Xavier and Elijah, with first wife Kim Fey.)

So does that mean they might elope? McCarthy simply smiled at her fiance and quipped, “We haven’t decided yet.” Laughing, the View co-host told Us that since getting engaged to Wahlberg last month, her wedding plans have gone back-and-forth.

“It depends on the day,” she said. If the two plan to have a formal ceremony, it will take place before 150 guests, including 6 or 7 groomsmen and bridesmaids on each side. “All of my bridesmaids are going to wear Pandora jewelry!” McCarthy dished.

“It would be this year or next year,” she added. “We like the idea of getting away on a vacation, but we also like the idea of keeping it local,” citing Boston (Wahlberg’s hometown) and Chicago (where McCarthy was raised) as potential options. Or, McCarthy joked, “find something in the middle, and force everyone to get there.”

“As long as she’s there, I’m there,” Wahlberg said.

Well, ain’t that sweet?

Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are engaged

Well, it looks like true love really does exist, because Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are getting married! Jenny announced the news on The View on Wednesday and Donnie himself even made an appearance to show off what a lovey dovey couple they are. Gag me.

Apparently Jenny’s 11-year-old son Evan helped Donnie with the surprise proposal, which is sweet. They don’t yet have a wedding date planned, but have considered August 2015. I wish I cared more (or at all), but alas…

Congrats to the happy couple, I suppose!

Have we been too harsh on Jenny McCarthy?

Jenny McCarthy has gotten a lot of criticism in her day for being an idiot and saying stupid shit, like how vaccinations cause autism and all that. But now, apparently she didn’t mean it like that and wishes everyone would stop saying she’s anti-vaccine.

As she wrote in the Chicago Sun Times,

I am not “anti-vaccine.” This is not a change in my stance nor is it a new position that I have recently adopted. For years, I have repeatedly stated that I am, in fact, “pro-vaccine” and for years I have been wrongly branded as “anti-vaccine.”

My beautiful son, Evan, inspired this mother to question the “one size fits all” philosophy of the recommended vaccine schedule. I embarked on this quest not only for myself and my family, but for countless parents who shared my desire for knowledge that could lead to options and alternate schedules, but never to eliminate the vaccines.

Blatantly inaccurate blog posts about my position have been accepted as truth by the public at large as well as media outlets (legitimate and otherwise), who have taken those false stories and repeatedly turned them into headlines. What happened to critical thinking? What happened to asking questions because every child is different?

For my child, I asked for a schedule that would allow one shot per visit instead of the multiple shots they were and still are giving infants.

I am passionate about important conversations on how we can improve health care for our children and generations to come. This is an extremely important discussion and I am dumbfounded that these conversations are discounted and negated because the answers are not black or white. Again I ask, what happened to critical thinking?

The column goes on from there and is well worth the read. To be fair, if indeed she’s been severely misquoted, that’s fine and well. Or, if she’s come to her senses and realized she was SEVERELY misinformed before, that’s even better. Either way, the sooner people stop spouting bullshit like this, the better.
