Jenny McCarthy moves to Chicago to be near new boyfriend

Kaiser pointed me to this story in the NY Post on Jenny McCarthy packing up her house in L.A. to move to Chicago. Her rep says she’s not moving in with her boyfriend of a whole few months, Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher, but you know she’s doing it to be closer to him. Jenny grew up in Chicago so it’s possible that she’s moving her son Evan, 10, closer to his grandparents, aunts and cousins. So in that respect it might be a good move for her and Evan. On the other side, she’s moving her kid away from his school and friends so she can be closer to her boyfriend of less than a year. She’s already said that Evan misses her ex boyfriend, Jim Carrey, so much that he’s in therapy for it. So is this fair to him? Here’s more:

Jenny McCarthy’s moving from Hollywood to the Windy City — home of her Chicago Bears linebacker boyfriend, Brian Urlacher. The Playboy cover girl was spotted clearing out her Los Angeles house yesterday in preparation for the move with her young son, Evan. Whispers were that McCarthy was moving in with Urlacher, but her rep told Page Six: “Jenny is not moving in with Brian, but she is relocating with her son to the Chicago area for the foreseeable future.” We hear McCarthy will eschew the city’s downtown to set up house “not far from where she grew up, and has lots of friends and family nearby.” The “Love in the Wild” star will commute to LA and New York for work. McCarthy, who’s currently gracing her sixth Playboy cover, and Urlacher have been dating quietly since April. The blond bombshell made headlines last month when she told Wendy Williams she accidentally texted a racy picture of herself intended for Urlacher to her dentist, who’s “like, 80 years old.” Chicago just got a lot more interesting.

Well it will be cheaper for Jenny in Chicago too that’s for sure. She said that she didn’t get “50 million or 25 million” from Jim Carrey after they split and joked that she was “living in a van down by the river.” She’ll be able to live in a much nicer place on the river in Chicago. I love that city. It does seem foolish to move so fast after she started dating someone, but at least she has family nearby.

    As obnoxious as I find her, it’s hard to fault her for moving back to her hometown. Don’t know how the kid will adjust, but moving back near family seems totally normal.

  2. ZigZagZoey says:

    She has always been a nasty skank, and she gets worse with age.
    She horrible on Love In the Wild.
    Cheek implants that could cut a bitch.

    I can’t believe I’m defending her…and actually I’m not really because I know Jenny’s doing this only for herself…but I think her son will be fine with the move. It may even be a good thing.

    My son is on the autism spectrum and I was terrified about moving a couple years ago, and so was he.

    Turns out it was the best thing that could have happened to him at that point in his life…going to a new school in a new community gave him a clean slate where no one had any preconceived notions about him. It empowered him in ways I could have never imagined and his progress since then has been astonishing. In fact many people who have met him say they’d never have guessed he had any “special needs.”

    Life can work in mysterious ways and hopefully Jenny’s son will he happy and adjust smoothly, especially if he has relatives nearby while she parties with the Bears.

    We have a great city. We don’t have nearly the amount of photogs they have to put up with in other cities. Guilanna and Bill, the Cusacks, Lauren Holly (jim’s other ex!), Vince Vaughn, Eddie Veder, Belushi, Liz Phair are well known for being low-key and go virtually unnoticeable.

    • Esmom says:

      So true. I used to see Joan Cusack all over the place, in the ‘hood, at Target, and she blended in very well with all the other soccer moms.

      And Eddie Vedder must really know how to ease in because I had no idea here was even here!

      • Chicagogurl17 says:

        I used to run into Joan all the time at NW hospital (her hubby was there for cancer treatments I think) and she was a gem to talk to. I love her humor.

        Vedder is a huge cubs fan (his box is next to belushi’s) and he has a home here and another in Arizon (where’s cubs train). Met him a few times, really nice guy.

    • RobN says:

      But that’s actually an argument against her moving there. There’s nothing she loves more than getting hounded by paps for doing absolutely nothing. She’ll be lost without her ability to flash her boobs at a camera.

      • Esmom says:

        I’m sure she’ll do everything possible to get noticed at Bears games. There’s Cutler’s girlfriend to hang out with, they can fight over the spotlight.

      • Mandy says:

        Somehow I don’t see Jenny Mccarthy pulling the same crap Kristin Cavallari did by calling the paparazzi to Chicago and then pretending she had nothing to do with it. Jenny’s only problem is that she’s very opinionated and that tends to get her in trouble. Out of the two of them I think Kristin is the one that’s going to be the bigger troublemaker.

        Also you don’t ever hear about Jenny Mccarthy at clubs, or running around flashing her boobs to people. She posed for playboy,but that’s not the same. I’ve never really heard of her being a lindsey lohan type girl.

    • Relli says:

      We sure do! Now if we could only get a handle on the schools and crime, it would be even better!

      Nice to see my fellow CB Chicagoans

      • Chicagogurl17 says:

        So true! Been here since ’97 in about 10 different hoods since but I’m living in Albany Park now and it’s not fun.

      • Relli says:

        @Chicagogurl17.. 7 years, 3 hoods and now Humboldt Park, I feel your pain! The things we do for cheap rent in this city 🙂

  5. Holden says:

    Good for her, hopefully that means we won’t be hearing about her again for a long time.

  6. TheOneAndOnly says:

    How is this vapid idiot even newsworthy, and i’m embarassed i even took the time to comment.

  7. Lucy2 says:

    Hope the move is Ok for her son (couldn’t care less about her) but it seems odd to me to move away from her job and have to “commute”. She’ll be away a lot, so hopefully the grandparents are good and helpful.

  8. Laura says:

    How can she let her son wear such awful shoes – uggs and crocs, yikes! That boy needs some chucks or dcs or something, stat…

  9. Jennifer12 says:

    This silly hasbeen (if she ever was) goes on and on about her victim of a son, but she’s the one who victimizes him. An endless parade of boyfriends that she introduces him to or follows around? Nice. Any kid needs stability, especially ones with disabilities. What a tool.

  10. notsoanonymous says:

    Off topic (in that this has nothing to do with her move to Chi-town) –

    I’m a big fan of The Nerdist, and I CONSTANTLY wonder what Chris Hardwick really thinks of Jenny. He spent a ton of time with her right when she got famous, and he seems like a relatively chill dude. Anyone seen quotes?

    EDIT – Recent interview:

    I don’t know. When I look back at that time, we were just so not in any of the same categories. Not in a super-harsh way, but people laid this competition down where it was, “You’re doing this, but she’s doing this.” It’s like comparing a basketball player to a hockey player. That’s about as sportsy as I get, by the way. I know hockey players have sticks, basketball players have a ball, and I understand the basic mechanics of those games, but that’s about as far as it goes.

      I like the Nerdist podcast too!
      I’ve always gotten the impression he didn’t really care for her, but tries to stay professional and not badmouth anyone. JMO.
