Jenny McCarthy on her Playboy cover: “I grew out a bush”

Jenny McCarthy
The more Jenny McCarthy talks, the more annoying she is. The last time we covered Jenny, she was calling out her ex, Jim Carrey, for not visiting her 10 year-old son, Evan, after their breakup. Evan is not Jim’s biological child, but apparently they shared a strong bond. Jenny even revealed that Evan had been asking about Jim and that he’s in therapy to deal with the loss. In a statement responding to Jenny’s claim, Jim called her out for violating her son’s privacy and said that he will always love Evan. The whole episode gave me the impression that Jenny is a jerk, and it made me feel for her son.

As you may know and not care about, Jenny is about to pose in Playboy again. She first posed for the men’s mag at 21, which helped launch her career as a sexy doofus. Recounting her first experience posing nude, Jenny told Oprah that s the Playboy people were surprised when she first took off her undies because she supposedly had the hairiest nether region they’d ever seen. In an appearance on The Today Show, Jenny said she’s using her pubes to maintain her modesty or something:

When asked recently if she plans to bare it all, McCarthy, 39, answered without hesitation.

“What’s everything?” she said with a laugh during an interview on Today. “I mean I grew out a bush so nobody sees anything.”

Explaining her reason behind the upcoming racy shoot, the Love in the Wild host says, “I figured [I’d do it] one more time before everything really falls apart. Why not? And [my son] Evan’s tuition was really expensive this year.”

The revelations didn’t stop there.

When asked if she’ll ever find “true love” by co-host Kathie Lee Gifford, McCarthy – who dates Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher – softly admitted, “I think I might be there – almost.”

You know how Jenny has her talking points? We heard her talk about her sex life during her last press tour, when she bragged that she was very horny and claimed she was great in bed. She did the same thing on Howard Stern last week (video is here) on which she said of giving beejs “I’m very very good at it. I will actually research on how to make sex more interesting and better, whether that’s positions and I’m cartwheeling on that… talking dirty.” This woman only has so much to sell, you know? It’s not like she has a particular talent that we know of.

Jenny talks about her Playboy spread at 2:30 in the video below.

    She annoys me to no end. I have never been a fan but she is particularly grating this time around.

    • Choupette says:

      Only read the title. Can you PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE stop with the Jenny McCarthy coverage? PLEASE?

      • corny says:

        AGREE! It’s like taking a trip to the farm and watching the pig roll in the mud covered in horse flies

      • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

        I agree – she is the blonde Kim Kardashian and equally uninteresting.

    • JudyK says:

      Corny said it BEST! Big ditto.

      “Growing out her bush”…such a class act. NOT.

  3. paola says:

    I think she just plays the part..she’s not as stupid as she sounds..

    • tripmom says:

      Excuse me, but anyone who encourages people not to vaccinate their children, and thinks she cured her son’s autism with proper diet, is stupid. Period.

      • Agnes says:


        not to mention, autism that he didn’t apparently have to begin with – i read that he was misdiagnosed and has something else. this woman is dumb as dirt and totally irresponsible to bring her personal “fight” out there and make it into a public health issue/threat.

      • SW says:

        Many intelligent people choose not to vaccinate their children. It’s their choice. As it should be

      • hazeldazel says:

        And many “intelligent” people can let their children die from diseases that are preventable and better yet – infect other children with them too! Yay! All because a couple guys decided to publish an article that “vaccines are bad mm’kay” with faked data (which they’ve admitted).

      • Melanie says:

        Intelligence is a spectrum and while many intelligent people choose not to vaccinate their children it makes them closer to stupid on that spectrum.

      • Melanie says:

        As far as the diet goes, I’ve read a lot of instances in which parents of austic children claim to have cured their children using a special diet. I’ve read that what is happening is that austic children are often sensitive to gluten and since they’re autistic they cannot always communicate to their parents how uncomfortable they are and sometimes have outbursts or what is percieved as austic behavior. When their diet changes they feel better so they behave better. So it’s not that their cured it’s just that they feel better since they are eating better for their bodies.

      • sweetshell says:

        It’s usually people who are not affected by autism who think vaccines are safe.

      • Anne says:


        No it is people who look at the fact that study after study has discredited a link between autism and vaccines. It has been shown that the one study that did link the two, was a fraud.

        Not to mention the recent outbreaks of measles and mumps that didn’t have to happen. These outbreaks put vulnerable people like cancer patients at risk.

      • Jess says:

        @Melanie- I LOLed and I don’t do that! Thank you for explaining the spectrum! Haha! Stupid is as stupid does- amiright?!

    • Rhiley says:

      Yeah, she is pretty dumb. She shoots off her mouth for attention and half of the crap she says arelies and the other half is just her talking about her snatch, her boobs, and her farts.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @hazel, I’m with you.

        @Melanie, very well said. I’m currently in the process of working with a gastroenterologist to determine whether I’m gluten sensitive, have celiac, or something else. I’ve noticed how much my health and mood have improved since going gluten-free. I’ve read that a gluten-free diet can improve a multitude of diseases (ADD and autism among them). However, like you said, no peer reviewed study has yet to indicate that autism can be cured via diet.

      • olcranky says:

        sad, her son is now 10 you’d think she try not to humiliate him with these types of talking points

  4. Aries says:

    She is too old to be talking about her bush. Nobody wants to see that shit!

    • Cleveland Girl says:

      I love her and I totally agree with you. She even LOOKS really old here. How old is she? 35?

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        Not a Jenny fan, but 35 is old? And mid-thirty-something’s are too old to be sexual? I guess I better enjoy the next three years, as I’m expected to live out the remainder of my life in seclusion so I don’t offend anyone with my oldness.

      • muffin says:

        i think cleveland girl was trying to say why does she look so old when she’s only 35. at least that’s what i took. i agree she looks very old and her skin looks saggy… i believe she’s 39 but she looks older.. this is a vulgar and irresponsible woman ..thank you for posting pics that reflect her inner nature.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @muffin, I was referring to the original poster AND Cleveland Girl’s response of “I totally agree.” One is CLEARLY ageist (and most likely in her teens or in possession of teenage reasoning), the other is teetering. I appreciate your interpretation though, (and I have misinterpreted posts in the past). However, I think I may be on target with these two.

      • Anmelt says:

        She is 41 actually. But that is not old anyway as Playboy has had older women featured, some dutch lady called Patricia Paay was 60 in 2009 and she looked hot. However, I have never understood the allure of Jenny McCarthy.

    • bobo says:

      I’m 33, 30’s are too old to be young, to young to be old. In my opinion, the perfect age.

  5. lease says:

    Love her! She’s not afraid to be herself. As for the Jim Carrey thing, it was a breakup after all and we are all entitled to one bitter outburst after a breakup!

    • Bobby the K says:

      ‘Not afraid to be herself’. Unfortunately, her real real self is a narcissistic lying famewhore. she exploits her own son for sympathy and attention. he has money for tuition, the playboy shoot excuse is a lie as well. Her motive is her. Her motive is always her.
      Really, not that deep.

    • mzthirtyeight says:

      I love her, too.

  6. Kasey says:

    After the whole calling out Jim Carrey thing I think this confirms my belief that she’s interested in speaking of sensationalizing herself and life for attention and publicity. Unfortunately, she’s got no filter so that means those in her life are left wide open to the public.

    • Rhea says:

      ITA. And why she never thinks about her son feelings if he ever finds out she’s spouting this “Oh, poor me— I have to do this because [my son] Evan’s tuition was really expensive this year??”

      • Marjalane says:

        Hmmmm, I may be mistaken but I’m pretty sure Jim Carey gave her something in the range of 5-6 million when they broke up. It was a big deal at the time.

        This woman is trashy. I feel bad for her son, I thinks he’s going to have a parade of “uncles” coming in and out of his life forever.

      • anon33 says:

        Exactly. That was just gross.

  7. shaniqua nunyadambidness says:

    I used to think she was funny and raunchy and irreverent and good times. Now, she’s just gross and vulgar and preachy and inappropriately aggressive. Yeah, her son might struggle with autism (or he did til she cured him with…?), but – if she thinks posing in Playboy with her wonk jugs and hand-knitted merkin hanging out at her age (AND HIS AGE) won’t have some negative effect on him, then she’s batsh*t crazy. Ugh…and the botox and new nose/cheekbones…something’s not right with her face. It’s like watching the decomposition of Pammy A. all over again.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      ITA with everything you said in this post. Used to think she was harmless fun but now she just screams try-hard. I’m no prude but it’s hard for me to approve a woman with children (who are old enough to understand) posing in Playboy. ugh.

    • MW says:

      Yeah Shaniqua and Orig – I used to think she was overly outgoing but fun, but she just says this vulgar stuff for the shock value so she stays relevant, at any cost. I don’t think she is completely dumb, and she is so pretty. Shame – she could exploit herself in less vile ways and still keep somewhat relevant. At least for her son’s sake.

  8. birdy says:

    Her reasoning for doing it was “And [my son] Evan’s tuition was really expensive this year.” Really Jenny??

    Jim reportedly set up a trust fund for her and her kid whilst they were dating for millions so that she would always be looked after even if they split so she does not need the money. This is all about her famewhoring for a bit of attention as since her split with Jim and her “curing” her kid of autism, she has no relevance in the public domain. Stunts like this and negative comments about her ex are the only way that she know gets any press coverage.

  9. Susan says:

    Jim Carrey is right, her son’s privacy is not on her radar screen. No child should have to encounter public knowledge about his Mom’s privates.

  10. Christine says:

    Clothing in earth tones suit her skin coloring.

  11. imabrat says:

    Ew. How tacky and classless. In the long run, class wins over money any day.

  12. Sabrine says:

    I saw her on a talk show saying she gives the best BJ’s a man could ever want. Someday her son will cringe at her big mouth, especially if it’s talking about his personal business.

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      I think she needs to dial down the raunch for the sake of her son. I also think that people who claim to be great lovers usually aren’t.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @mort-right? If you’re good in the sack I don’t see any reason why you would have to run around talking about it. Sexy? No. Incredibly insecure? Yes.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        Hey kitten!

        You hit the nail on the head. Major insecurity.

  13. Dana says:

    I think she is looking a lot like Chelsea Handler in these photos.

  14. bagladey says:

    Her face looks a bit rough.

  15. birdy says:

    Jenny McCarthy – A look into the future for Chelsea Handler.

  16. the original bellaluna says:

    I only clicked on this to comment that I cannot stand this woman! She really needs a filter. Or a handler. Or to, you know, just go away.

    And her “son’s tuition was really expensive this year”? It’s called CHILD SUPPORT, bimbo – GET SOME!

  17. Annie says:

    Lookin’ rough. botox and fillers always creates the same blobby, puffy face eventually. Lindsay has the same thing going. Sheesh, I’d rather just have some wrinkles than this dreadful pillow face look.

  18. Jackie says:

    rarely do women have the ‘ick’ factor…she has it in spades.

  19. Sonia says:

    Nice…now her son can shoulder the blame for his mama being a trashy ho…it’s for his tuition after all. Way to protect his privacy Jenny!

  20. judyjudy says:

    Women who brag about their BJ skills are the tackiest of them all.

  21. Jazzmin says:

    Jenny has always been a woman who does not mind talking openly about her body, sex or anything else that makes some women uncomfortable. I agree with her 100% rock on Jenny!!! Some other poster mentioned she is “too old” 39 is not old! Hopefully when you reach that same age bracket you’ll check yourself in to a assisted nursing facility. 🙂

    • Chell says:

      Thank you for posting this, I am 39 & that is not OLD by any means!
      Love Jenny~ I have read all of her books she wrote about her son. I have soooo much respect for her as a mom after reading them!

  22. Cathy says:

    Her face is shaped wierd. I can’t quite pinpoint the word I want to use, so I guess wierd will just have to do.

  23. CrazyDaisy says:

    She’s a low class pig…

  24. Embee says:

    Too much, definitely. I do think that she was being tongue-in-cheek about the tuition, riffing off of the age-old excuse of “I was young and needed the money for my babies.” She was being honest with her first answer: she’s doing it one more time while her body is still nubile enough to pull it off. I find her a bit too brash (and I like brash women) but on the whole I think she’s been an entertaining personality to watch.

    Also, I have read a ton of accounts of people curing their children’s behavior issues through diet, so I don’t think her claims are outrageous. She’s also not the only person in the world to believe that vaccines are harmful; I came to a different conclusion when I researched the issue, but many people are understandably suspicious of the studies that proved the vaccines were safe.

    As for Jim Carey…I just congratulate her on surviving that one.

  25. Anne says:

    She is a horrible person. She spreads misinformation about vaccines. And she has made money for writing all those books about autism and how she “cured” her son.

    She has continued to defend Wakefield despite the fact he has been outed as a fraud and completely discredited.

  26. aims says:

    Nobody cares abut your bush, Jenny. How can she find time to do playboy when she so busy throw old boyfriends under the bus, and exploiting her son?

  27. annaloo. says:

    This woman came to fame bc she posed for Playboy. What were we expecting from her, honestly? That she win a Pulitzer Prize for being a literary genius? Even Pam Anderson knew she would never be asked to perform Shakespeare.

  28. nvg says:

    Please, grandma, put it away. Your time has passed.

  29. Crazy Charlize says:

    Jenny told Oprah that the Playboy people were surprised when she first took off her undies because she supposedly had the hairiest nether region they’d ever seen.

    Doubtful. They’d already shot Demi Moore, who was the furriest creature they’d ever seen.

  30. Joan says:

    Well, 80’s fashion has come back in style … I just never thought growing a full bush would be included. Yikes.

  31. Melanie says:

    I tried watching her interview on Oprah after she and Jim Carrey broke up. It was the first interview I had ever seen her in and I couldn’t even get through 15 minutes of it. She just seems really obnoxious.

  32. MST says:

    Um — can anyone tell me what this woman’s talent is?

  33. L says:

    Again, this is why she called out Jim Carrey- publicity for the magazine spread. She needs it to sell well. This is why she pretty much does everything-she needs to sell books, magazines, whatever. She’s a user and always has been.

    As for the immunization thing, when my friend’s kid nearly dies from whooping cough because she’s to young to get the vaccine-then yes I think that people who don’t vaccinate their children are more towards the not intelligent side of the scale. (not only to protect their own kids but for herd immunity)

    • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

      I’m with you. My friend’s pre-teen daughter died of meningitis because the vaccine wasn’t available at the time of her daughter’s birth. Had she been vaccinated, she would be alive today.

  34. lucy2 says:

    Classy as always.
    I can’t believe she stated her son’s tuition as a reason. Oh that poor kid.

  35. vibius says:

    Wow, first Madonna and now Jenny McCarthy. Guys with old lady kinks must be having a field day.

  36. Viv says:

    Tuition? Didn’t Jim give her $20 Million instead of a ring and announced it to the world? Did she have to give it back?

  37. Chatcat says:

    I’m going to keep it simple…she is a pig. I feel sorry for her son, I can’t imagine he can or will ever be proud of such a trashy/skanky Mom. I have paid for 3 boys, 12 years of parochial and private parochial high school and didn’t sell my soul or anything else…just worked my ass off and did without things for myself.

  38. BRE says:

    There is nothing that woman won’t talk about. I happened to read a part of one of her books and she discussed anal bleaching!

  39. Jennifer says:

    I can’t even believe I am commenting on this, but when you’re a single mom and you date and you choose to allow the new person in your life to meet your
    kids, you need to take into consideration that the relationship may not last and you need to be prepared to talk to your kids about it.She is whiny and pathetic.

  40. Ravensdaughter says:

    TMI-she baring it all but she still has to open her big mouth and share more than necessary.
    Especially after her little fit about Jim Carrey, ex-boyfriend who set aside $50 million for her son, I think even less of her (not that I thought she was worth much in the first pace).

  41. bubbles says:

    I’m soooo glad she cleared that up. I was laying awake at night wondering…

  42. LittleDeadGirl says:

    The more the she talks about how good she is at sex the worst I think she’s really at it. She has to research and study? It’s not a test. Just enjoy yourself and have fun with your partner. I had no idea I should be getting my GRE books before I get into bed.

  43. Jay says:

    “…I will actually research on how to make sex more interesting and better…” Given her track record with what she calls “research”, that actually scares me more than it could intrigue me.

  44. Bobby the K says:

    Any speculation as to what colour this bush is gonna be?

    Those people who say they ‘love’ her, that’s just a joke right?

  45. Hfgggh says:

    Fit with a capital f
