Jenny McCarthy

Have we been too harsh on Jenny McCarthy?

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.

Do You Care How Much Jenny McCarthy Weighs?

jenny mccarthy

I don’t see why anyone needs to know what number Jenny McCarthy sees when she gets on the scale, but I guess she’s proud of it and wanted to share it with the public, so here ya go: she weighs 136 pounds. Uh… congrats?

From Radar Online:

“I’m a big yo-yoer. I do go up and down. I go from like 120 to 138. Right now I’m at 136, I think,” the 5’7? actress, model and comedienne told Radar.

“And I take this time to thoroughly enjoy it during the holidays. I’m kind of part of the collective thinking when it comes to just surrendering to the not so great foods.”

But McCarthy, 41, admits she hides her weight well.

“Sometimes it has to do with PSM. I drink a lot of water! When you have a lot of water it kind of tends to go everywhere,” she said. “Like a little bit in your neck and a lot in your boobs and your arms…to me it’s more evenly spread out I think.”

Is this seriously something worth spending an interview on? I’m no Jenny McCarthy fan so I don’t care about anything she has to say, actually, but like… really? She has nothing more interesting about herself than how much she weighs? How sad for her. I can see why fans of The View find her so offputting.

Sharon Osbourne Is Sorry For Telling ‘The View’ to Fuck Off

sharon osbourne the talk

What I love about Sharon Osbourne is that she is reckless with her mouth. She will say whatever the hell she wants about whomever the hell she wants and if you don’t like it, too damn bad. That’s why it wasn’t at all surprising when she told the ladies of The View to go fuck themselves while appearing on The Arsenio Hall Show earlier this week. I mean, first of all, who could really blame her? The View sucks. The Talk isn’t much better, but whatever.

On Thursday’s episode of The Talk, Sharon made a half-assed apology for bad-mouthing her own show, until the other women pointed out that she’d mixed up the show names, to which she replied:

“I have to own this I’m fully responsible for myself, some of the time. Unfortunately I was inappropriate and I was trying to be funny at someone else’s expense.”

“See I’m not well, I’m not responsible. I’m not. I’m really just a loose cannon. Anyway I want to apologize to Jenny, Sherri and Whoopi, who are all accomplished self-made women who have amazing careers.

“They have achieved so much. I mean Whoopi is an Oscar winner. Who am I to say anything about Whoopi? Any of the ladies – I respect Jenny as a mother, as a woman, as an artist. Sherri too. I can’t even get the name of my own show right so please, understand it was my irreverent behavior. No disrespect was meant and I’m not a person that is mean. I’m really not and I apologize.”

Ha! I mean, she’s too right that Whoopi is kind of in another league, but you know right well Sharon didn’t mean a single world of that. My guess is that the producers of The Talk told her to apologize, pronto, and that’s where we are with that.

“The View” Fans Find Jenny McCarthy “Off-Putting”

jenny-mccarthy-view

Jenny McCarthy is not making a whole lot of fans by joining The View. Sources say she may be fired pretty soon, as viewers find her “more off-putting than Elisabeth [Hasselbeck].” The sources are from Radar Online so grain of salt and all that but really, who doesn’t find this hard to believe? Here’s the rest of the report, via Daily News:

“ABC has begun doing deep research on Jenny’s work on the show and the initial findings are that viewers want to tune out the second she opens her mouth!” a production source told Radar.

“The data has revealed that she is far more off-putting than Elisabeth.” The source revealed that Barbara Walters, 84, who will retire in summer 2014, “isn’t looking for a replacement for Jenny yet, she is obsessed with ratings and the longevity of the show, so Jenny needs to turn it around or she will be gone.”

Despite the fact that McCarthy has only been hosting for a little over a month, the production source is unclear how long her inked deal with the show is for, however, “If Barbara wants her out, they will buy out her contract,” the insider said.

“Right now they’re just trying to adjust Jenny’s performance on the show so that she comes off as more appealing, but that’s an uphill battle.”

Ratings are also down.

Anyone been watching her on The View? Do tell. Is she annoying as all hell or is that impossible after Elisabeth?

Oh God: Jenny McCarthy Joins The View

jenny mccarthy marquee las vegas

Jenny McCarthy is picking up where Elisabeth Hasselbeck left off, as she takes her seat on The View. What a step up from her Carl’s Jr. gig. I’m sure she’ll bring that extra special early 2000′s feel to the show and I hope that she sent Jim Carrey and Oprah gigantic thank you gifts for keeping her in the dimly lit spotlight that she’s managed to stay in.

Barbara Walters is, like, soooo happy that Jenny McCarthy is going to join their tea party, saying (via Entertainment Weekly),

Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor.

Really? Let’s review some of the things Jenny McCarthy has said — publicly. Things she’s said knowing someone was writing it down, ready to quote her on it.

(On costarring with Donnie Wahlberg, who is apparently her boyfriend now or something):
Let’s just say we visually give 50 Shades of Grey a run for its money. It gets steamy. I mean like really steamy. Being turned on by a guy is always fun but to have it legitimately happen to you on TV is to be turned back into a 12-year-old. By the time we get into the groundbreaking interview, my face turns fifty shades of RED.

(On doing ecstasy):
I found myself holding a tree to brace myself. The texture felt so good that I decided to rub my head and boobs all over it. It was a tree I was humping!

And I’m not even going to touch the whole Autism thing.

Joy Behar is set to leave the show next month, but I’m pretty sure it’s unrelated.

Jenny McCarthy and New Kids on the Block’s Donnie Wahlberg Are A Thing

jenny mccarthy donnie wahlberg

Stranger things have happened, I suppose, than Jenny McCarthy hooking up with Donnie Wahlberg – the lesser brother, naturally – but that’s exactly what’s happened. The pair are apparently having a lovely time dating each other and I suppose that’s fine because we all want someone to come home to… or something.

From People:

In a coupling you only thought possible in a nostalgic 1990s-era dream, Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg are dating, PEOPLE has learned – even if they are taking things Step by Step.

Steamy sparks flew between them in late March when New Kids on the Block and Blue Bloods star Wahlberg, 43, made an innuendo-filled appearance on her self-titled VH1 talk show.

The duo provocatively sucked on red lollipops while McCarthy, 40, asked “Do you talk dirty while you’re having sex?”

“I do,” he replied.

“You do – but some guys do it wrong,” she replied.

“Yeah, I don’t do it wrong,” he said seductively, as McCarthy looked as though she needed some air.

McCarthy referenced the red-hot appearance in a blog she posted in advance of the episode on Chicago Splash.

“Let’s just say we visually give 50 Shades of Grey a run for its money,” she writes. “It gets steamy. I mean like really steamy. Being turned on by a guy is always fun but to have it legitimately happen to you on TV is to be turned back into a 12-year-old. By the time we get into the groundbreaking interview, my face turns fifty shades of RED.”

I don’t understand any of this but to be honest, I’m kinda too tired to care. I forgot Donnie Wahlberg was even a thing. And Jenny McCarthy I only remember because she’s shilling for a hamburger joint now. Love comes from unexpected places, I guess.
