Jenny McCarthy doesn’t let boyfriends meet her son for 6 months

Whenever Jenny McCarthy gets a new boyfriend, it seems the press hears about it. She was with Jim Carrey for years, and then dated some famewhore bodybuilder guy, right around the time her new book came out. She dumped the bodybuilder in December and found a new guy just in time to kiss her at midnight during her gig hosting New Year’s Rocking eve. Jenny may roll these guys out to the press after three dates, but she told Ellen Degeneres that she doesn’t introduce any boyfriends to her son Evan, 7, until after she’s dated them for six months. Good for her. Jenny also explained that she met her new boyfriend on a blind date that her sister set up for her, and that she went through a few duds before she found him.

Ellen: Now, how long have you been seeing Paul?

Jenny: For like, 5 weeks, I think it’s been.

Ellen: What do you mean, “I think?” At that point, you know exactly how many days.

Jenny: Okay, it’s like 36 days and two hours but I decided to import this time because I wasn’t doing a very good job with LA guys. These LA dudes had more make up in
their purse than me. They’d literally pull out their knapsack of concealers and I’m like, it’s time to look outside of LA. I found a boy. I went on some blind dates. He was my 5th blind date.

Ellen: Who set you up on blind dates?

Jenny: I told everyone I know, “Please, I can’t pick them. As a friend, find me a man.” So the first blind dates were these really bizarre dudes that were like, “Do you know Sharon Stone?” And I’m sitting on a date going, “Well, I know of her. I’ve seen her in movies.” “Well, you think you can get an autograph?” I’m like, “Oh my god.”

Ellen: What kind of friend set you up with that guy?

Jenny: Not a very good one. So my sister was the one who turned me on to Paul who’s a sports agent and lives in Boston. His accent is so strong it’s like Good Will Hunting strong that I really can’t understand anything he says to me. He could’ve proposed to me and I could’ve said yes by now and I have no idea. And I’m really happy.

Ellen: So he lives in Boston so you went on a date here or there? He came here?

Jenny: No, we met up in New York. We had a blind date there. You know that movie, “Up in The Air?”

Ellen: That’s what’s happening?

Jenny: We’ve been meeting up in the air in both cities and trying to make it work.

Ellen: So you’re very happy it seems.

Jenny: I am. I feel content. Everybody’s asking me the magic question, “Has he met [son] Evan?” Evan is, by the way, on the strictest VIP meet and greet which is like 6 months. I don’t have guys meeting him on a cycle. That boy is very important to me.

Ellen: Good, because that would be very confusing for him.

Jenny: It would be.

That’s great that Jenny makes sure a relationship is stable before bringing the new guy around her son. I wonder, though, what she does with Evan while she’s jetting all over the place to meet up with this new guy. She probably has a nanny who can watch Evan at home so it’s not disruptive to him and he can stay in school.

I don’t think Jenny is dating too much for a single mom, as much as she’d probably like us to think she is. She’s trying to find the right guy for her, and that involves getting out there and meeting people. Her mistake isn’t dating, it’s telling the press every time she sleeps with a guy. That’s better than bringing him around as another dad or “uncle” to her son, though. If Kate Hudson followed this rule her son would never meet her boyfriends.

Jenny McCarthy is shown on 12/11, 11/21 and 10/19. Credit:

    So, she’s an “author” now?

    I hate this world.

  2. mln76 says:

    Wasn’t she living with the one dude with the weird abs?Did she just not see her son that whole time? I think I would extend that to a year if I were her but I am just going by how my mom was after her divorce.
    But yeah it’s much better than Kate Hudson.

  3. Isabel says:

    I don’t necessarily agree with her beliefs on vaccines or her taste in men, but what’s important is that she’s such a caring and affectionate Mom. She’s allowed to date around. That’s how you find the right guy! Yeah, she might tell the press too much, but the paps will likely find her anyway. She’s honest about it. I really like her a LOT. She seems to have such a good heart.

  4. Missfit says:

    I was starting to like her, considering we can relate on having a son with Autism, but she just had to ruin it by being a hoe and dating all kinds of men. That’s the thing about some people, they don’t want to be lonely and date all kinds of people back to back…that’s not always the best answer. So that she’s possibly putting her men first before her son. She needs to lay off the damn d*ck so much and concentrate onto what’s more important. She was better off with Jim Carrey.

  5. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    So, basically, since she’s just been sleeping around, her son hasnt met anyone since Jim Carrey.


  6. Arianna says:

    @ kai
    hahaahhahhaahaha you and me both

    i dont understand how she is still relevant?
    love you ellen.

  7. Roma says:

    When Jim Carrey hosted SNL last weekend I just wanted to give him a hug through the TV. Jenny? I don’t really care about but I’m glad she’s not constantly bombarding her son with strange men.

  8. samihami says:

    She’s a kook spreading dangerous misinformation about vaccines. Hopefully no one is taking her seriously.

    Also, she claims that she magically “cured” her son’s autism through diet. I don’t know much about this disorder, but I don’t think that’s possible, is it?

  9. mln76 says:

    @samihami doctors are now saying that her son probably was misdiagnosed with autism when he may have had a form of epilepsy.

  10. Whatever says:

    Meh, the vaccine industry spreads plenty of its own dangerous misinformation about vaccines too.

  11. Louise says:

    I don’t follow Jenny closely but I thought she changed her stance on vaccines, that it didn’t cause autism. Well it’s too late now since she was on a very public anti-vaccine for years. Kate Hudson definately needs to take note about waiting to introduce men to her son.

  12. Wicked SteppMom says:

    mln76: OOOH, I hadn’t read that! That’s awesome! As an epileptic, that just makes me dislike her even more. I know that the Ketogenic diet can be used on some children to control, and even “cure” their epilepsy, and some teens/adults can use a different form called the Modified Atkins. Personally, I just think she’s a nutjob who doesn’t bother to learn enough about actual medical conditions before deciding she’s an authority on what causes them. I was absolutely giddy when they announced that the major study that all these people who claim vaccinations cause autism is based on was PROVEN to have fraudulent data.

  13. Jezi says:

    That’s what I’m talking about, I agree. I made a comment on the Kate Hudson post and got attacked by some chick named olive because I think that it’s important for the parents to at least make sure that the person they are involved with is going to be around for awhile and not just in and out of the child’s life.

  14. mln76 says:

    Look Jenny Mccarthy totally made an ass of herself with her faux autism advocay but to be fair it isn’t her fault that her son was misdiagnosed she isn’t an MD. Also alot of people still believe that kids are over vaccinated. Some doctors space the shots apart so that they aren’t done all at once (which I think is much more reasonable than not vaccinating). I don’t trust the FDA on a lot of issues because they are really corrupt and even when drugs are banned in Europe and Canada it takes ages for them to speak up on side effects.

  15. Justaposter says:

    I agree with her about the 6 month rule.

  16. the original bellaluna says:

    Personally, I never introduced ANYONE to my children who I didn’t think would be around for good. Of course, I also didn’t date for 2 years after leaving and filing for divorce. Children just hold out so much hope for having a “complete” family; it’s not fair to “Kate Hudson” your kids. Kids should always be a single parent’s first priority.

    And if a dude is not liked by your kids and your pets, RUN AWAY! Kids and pets are very intuitive that way…

  17. van says:

    Also agree with her about the 6 month rule. Too bad she did not pass that on to Halle Berry.

  18. original kate says:

    “I just think she’s a nutjob who doesn’t bother to learn enough about actual medical conditions before deciding she’s an authority on what causes them.”


  19. JenJen says:

    Well that is good for her son if it is true. He is probably still taking it hard that she tossed Jim away. He really did seem to care about the boy and seems like this Beotch was just using him. Her book,”knowing it all” about sex and love looks like a bunch of bull to me. She didn’t love Jim for a long time (if ever at all the way she is so cold). She “let” him hang around,taking notes all the while for her book to make a buck off of him and his name.
    She was lucky to have a good man like Jim,I never did like her. I hope he is doing o.k. He does get really depressed and seemed to be happy in this faux family.

  20. crtb says:

    I agree with her about the 6 month rule

    My daught is 22 now but when she was a child, I didn’t introduce anyone until we were in a sereious relationship. It’s hard for an adult when people leave you. It is even more difficult when children become attatched to people. So I only introduced my daughter to men that were going to be around for a while.

  21. Tess says:

    I just saw Jim Carrey on The Actor’s Studio and I have to say that I fell a little bit in love with him.

    He’s got so much heart, soul, and depth.

    Her? Not so much. And nobody should make choices about their child’s innoculations based her her pseudo scientific ruminations.

  22. Lee says:

    Six month rule…very smart lady…

  23. JenJen says:

    Yep, she is on Ellen talking about a new guy and this “rule”. I don’t know something is making me wonder if Jim dumped her and this is her taunting him to try to get him back, or to get a ring.

    At least she isn’t giving details about her and Jenna Jamison in a bathroom stall. Her big mouth and Rumor jaw really get on my nerves.

  24. Camille says:

    Good for her. I hope she finds long lasting happiness. She sounds like a good mum to me.

  25. gaugustaus says:

    A story recently came out stating the study that supposedly showed a link to autism & vaccines was bogus. Maybe that’s why she has changed her story so much.

    EDIT: here is a link from Popular Science (one of many stories about what I mentioned above) in case anyone is interested

  26. Matt says:

    I am very happy with Jenny’s ‘six month rule’. I have a friend of a friend who has had like eight boyfriends over the space of 12 months, and they are all going on family picnics with her five year old daughter. I try not to judge (ha!) but I just worry it’s going to mess up her daughter big time because she will have no stability in her life.

  27. Emily says:

    I really don’t like her due to her insane vaccinations=autism thing, but I do respect her for doing this. Much better for her son, I think; less confusing and hurtful than getting to like his new “uncle” or whatever before having him disappear suddenly.

  28. anotherrandom says:

    As a single mother I love this 6 month rule. I’ll have to remember that one. My son has never met anyone, but I’ve never seriously dated anyone since I left his father. Speaking of which, Evan has one so the question of where he goes when Jenny McCarthy is running around is more than likely with him. They probably work it out that way.

  29. Isa says:

    It’s not her fault that her son was mis-diagnosed but it is her fault for spreading false information and promoting paranoia about vaccinating children.
    She is far from a doctor.

    Anyway, good on her for her rule. I told my husband that if we ever split up I want him to wait a while before introducing our child and baby number two to someone. Not that I can control that, but I asked nicely. 🙂 And I told him I would do the same!
