Well, another famous couple bites the dust, only this time, it doesn’t appear like a half dozen mistresses and a Nazi photo are to blame. Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy, who I was surprised to find out were together for a whopping five years, both announced they had split via Twitter late yesterday. Each tweet was totally respectful and admiring, so I guess we can assume it was an amicable breakup, but dudes, I’m bummed. It’s super sad that I’ve naturally come to consider five years an epically long time, when, in actuality, it’s but a blip. In other news, GILFs everywhere are celebrating that they no longer have to compete with Jenny. [DListed] Keep reading »
For a long time, I was certain the artist formerly known as Prince (or is he Prince again? I get confused) was an alien. Turns out, he’s just a Jehovah’s Witness. After a lifetime of sexy dancing, the 50-something-year-old is in need of a double hip replacement, trading in his raspberry beret for a diamond-encrusted cane. But alas his highness has refused the surgery, citing his religious beliefs as his reason. Evidently, Jehovah’s Witnesses aren’t down with blood transfusions. [Celebitchy] — Or maybe he doesn’t want the doctors to discover his true alien identity? Hmmm.
After the jump, more celebs who have weird…er…unique views on medicine. Keep reading »
Funny lady Jenny McCarthy has inked a multi-year, multi-platform deal with Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo Productions. The projects include a syndicated talk show and a blog on Oprah.com, which Jenny launched last Friday, discussing PMS and sugar. Rachael Ray and Dr. Phil became household names after making frequent appearances on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and signing deals with Harpo, so the chances of Jenny becoming another Oprah protege-turned-TV mogul are high. She’s discussed her struggles with her son’s autism and published several books, including Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism and Mother Warriors: A Nation of Parents Healing Autism Against All Odds. Jenny, a former Playboy model who hosted MTV’s “Singled Out” in the ’90s, seems like an unlikely choice for Oprah. Would you watch a talk show hosted by Jenny McCarthy?

Marriage is so out this wedding season! Only Mariah Carey is doing it, that’s how over it is. After a nuptial-less summer — not even Kate Moss made it down the aisle — we started noticing the new Hollywood trend. Longterm partnerships (sans diamonds, splashy affairs, and cheesy photos) are the must-have Ray-Ban Wayfarers of relationships! After both had failed marriages, hippie generation icons Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have been going at it, without making it official, for 25 years. In an interview, Goldie claimed their secret to success is, “knowing I can walk out at any moment…that keeps things fresh.” And after going through the pain of divorce, many stars seem to agree.

The funny couple were marching on Capitol Hill, in support of a cause dear to Jenny’s heart — eliminating the toxins from children’s vaccines. McCarthy has said she believes her son developed autism from vaccines he received as a baby. [Washington D.C., 6/4/08] Keep reading »
Jenny McCarthy is busting all kinds of stereotypes and proving big-breasted bleach blondes are smarter than stodgy old dorks with degrees. The funny former Playboy pin up has been singled out for her autism activism and has just published a book on the subject, Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism. She has been standing up for her son, Evan, who suffers from the brain development disorder. McCarthy tells the compelling story of watching her son literally die as he went into cardiac arrest from a vaccination that she claims later caused his autism. She spoke out about her experience on Larry King Live this week, including how a shift in diet has helped her son manage his symptoms. If you thought McCarthy was brave for posing nude, you should see her fight the health care establishment! Keep reading »
