Jenny McCarthy debuted her blue Smurf hair at the Grammys: try-hard & dumb?

Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg attended the Grammys last night. I would get mad about Jenny’s try-harding, but honestly, the red carpet perked up a bit when she arrived. It was a fairly boring carpet, and as soon as Jenny came out with her blue hair, I was living for the mean comments. The reason why they were there was pretty simple: Donnie stars on a CBS show, so he was asked to present a Grammy (he got one of the country music awards), and Jenny is a famewhore so she decided to attend the Grammys with her husband.

I don’t even have an ID for her black dress. I don’t even care? It was shiny, and the little gloves reminded me of Madonna. The sunglasses reminded me that Jenny is a legend in her own mind. And the blue hair reminded me that she’s a 45-year-old woman who still behaves like a teenager. Apparently, Jenny dyed her hair because she “was just bored.” As Betty Draper once said, only boring people are bored. Here’s the video of their red carpet interview:

    Blue hair and big sunglasses trying to distract us from something else she’s done to herself? Her face was already frozen on NYE, so it can’t be that. New boobs?

    • Scal says:

      THIS. She debuts a new face every year at NYE and then it settles around this time. I figured the glasses were for covering up some eye work.

        People below who “would never criticize a woman of any age for her choices” mystify me. As long as it’s not nasty and mean, I think do each other a favor by critiquing fashion and style. Hey, we’re ALL getting “older” every day.
        And it’s fun.

        I WILL snark on someone’s intent, esp. if they’re being phony, but just commenting on what looks good or not isn’t mean.


        This doesn’t work for me. She used to be pretty.
        She seems like she’s never quite found her niche — too alert [maybe not smart but at least alert] to just be a PB bunny all her life, but never found her spot.

    “…besides promoting the return of measles” 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • hnmmom says:

      Honestly one of the funniest things I have read lately!

      • Sabrine says:

        Love the measles comment. I would not call down a woman for wearing blue hair at the age of 45, nor any other fashion choices women choose at an older age. It really bothers me when younger people “decide” what older people should or should not wear. Jenny’s blue hair is her deal and if she loves it, why not.

      • ELX says:

        Let’s leave it that she’s a vapid, ignorant individual who is directly responsible for illness, disabilities and deaths. She should not be provided with a platform for anything, anywhere.

    • Char says:

      Yes! I seriously laughed out loud at that one! 😂

    • adastraperaspera says:


    • minx says:

      I’m dying!

    • Neelyo says:

      May that be her epitaph. HAHAHA!

  3. Willa says:

    Jenny Mc Carthy is always try hard and dumb. The smurf hair just completes it.

    • Millennial says:

      They are both try hard. I remember watching a clip of their show where he literally gives her an enema because she doesn’t feel good.

      Which is not exactly my first line of defense when I don’t feel good.

      • Snowflake says:


      • AnnaKist says:

        Ick. She’s beyond gross, stupid, wilfully ignorant and fame-whorey. They are both try-hards who should just give it up. And she looks ridiculous.

      • Plantpal says:

        I thought Donny’s show was Blue Bloods? Which I like but am not up to date on. I haven’t seen Ms. McCarthy on the show. Danny Boyle gives someone an enema? ?????

      • Lady D says:

        What’s worse is that it was televised! I really thought the K clan sniffing their pee stained linen napkins in a restaurant was as low as TV could go. I was wrong.
        I also seem to remember Leanne Rimes doing a pregnancy pee test in front of her in-laws in a hotel.

  4. Girl_ninja says:

    She abd her husband are always try hard and dumb. Did anyone ask ger about vaccination and her role in the rise of childhood diseases?

  5. Eiré says:

    It’s not really a question of *if* it’s try-hard and dumb, is it?

    The real question is, how low can she go?

  6. Lorelai says:

    Oh FFS, she looks ridiculous.

    • hnmmom says:

      It looks like she’s wearing a rubber hair mask, like she cut the face off the mask and just wore the hair.

  7. magnoliarose says:

    I could barely look at her once I became fixated on Donnie’s cosmetic contouring situation on his face. I spy several bronzers working hard with his bisque BB cream.
    Her blue hair is a blatant attention grab of course, but I want to study him with a magnifying glass.

    • deets says:

      I think he’s also shaded in his hair line to make it appear more full.

      • Giddy says:

        Yes! The hairline is ridiculous looking. I think he’s also either used make-up on some thinning patches, or he’s using that nasty looking shake-on stuff that is advertised on television. “Your friends won’t be able to tell!” I was recently up close and personal on an elevator, behind a guy using that shake-on hair. It was so awful looking, like a weird brown rats nest.

    • Neelyo says:

      It looks like he’s gone full-on Joey Lawrence and is just going to draw on his features and lost hair from now on.

  8. smcollins says:

    Yes and yes, as well as another new face.

  9. Lolo86lf says:

    Yes, she looks try-hard and that hair isn’t doing her any favors. That dress is not even well fitted. She looks like some sort of rebel without a cause, and she is way past that age.

  10. Lilith says:

    Dumb and Dumber To.

  11. Tia says:

    These days it’s the anti-vax and being Melissa’s cousin (apparently the resentment at the plump brunette rather than the skinny blonde cousin making it big was *epic*).

  12. RN says:

    I haven’t seen a picture of her in years. If you hadn’t told me who this is, I never would have recognized her. She has a completely different face!

    • lucy2 says:

      I used to go to a New Years Eve party every year and we’d always have the show on in the background, and would spend most of the night discussing how jacked up her face is. Every year it was worse and worse.

  13. deets says:

    With combat boots, my teen self would have loved that is to say it’s about 20 years out of date.

    She should have hired a professional hair colourist instead of doing it at home.

  14. Patricia says:

    I can’t even watch that clip it’s so try-hard and uncomfortable. Wow they are a perfect match. The desperation just reeks. And yes Jenny looks ridiculous. I’m all about individuality and self expression but that’s a whole different thing than attention seeking.

  15. Nancy says:

    I forgot she was married to Markie Mark’s less relevant brother. She always sought out attention, usually with her loud mouth, so the hair is less annoying, even if she resembles a Smurf. My dude, blue socks?

  16. StormsMama says:

    I like his show 😆😆 with Bridget M and Tom Selleck 😅😆

  17. Beth says:

    They’re both has been’s and need to be try-hards to remind people who they are and that they’re still around

  18. Aerohead21 says:

    Looks like someone had some work done on her face…blue hair, giant sunglasses, and the gloves ruin that dress which is already iffy on it’s own…

  19. KiddV says:

    She looks like Kim Basinger in that last photo, only not as pretty.

  20. LB says:

    I am probably in the minority, but I actually like it!

  21. vespernite says:

    Oh FFS Donnie! Can you please wake up and leave her try hard butt! UGH! #DonnieDoBetter

  22. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    I will always love The New Kids On The Block no matter how old they are. But I wish he could find someone better than Jenni Mcarthy. Blah.

  23. Frosty says:

    “All the kids’ friends say I’m the cool mom!”

  24. raincoaster says:

    I had hair that colour a month ago (it was an accident; it was supposed to be Faded Blue Jeans, not Smurfette) and now it’s turquoise bluey-green. This colour does NOT let go, even though it’s supposed to fade in ten shampoos. I’ll have to tough it out until I can stand it no more and then do purple over it, let that fade, and then get it to the white I want it to get back to. So, she’s in for six months or more of misery, if that makes you feel better.

    And she’s wearing sunglasses because she probably couldn’t book a good makeup artist for the day and didn’t think her own job on her face could pass scrutiny.

  25. Carmen says:

    Blue hair is not a DIY project. She needs Guy Tang to do a coloring job on her. That pic looks like she just poured ten bottles of blue food coloring into a pot of water and dumped it over her head.

  26. Deedee says:

    While I like the blue hair, it doesn’t compliment her. It looks like a wig. And the whole shamans looks like a hot mess. She needs a stylist badly.
