Jenny McCarthy

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.

Do You Care How Much Jenny McCarthy Weighs?

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.
