Jennifer Love Hewitt is dating Jenny McCarthy’s ex husband

Jennifer Love Hewitt, her ex Jamie Kennedy and her new bf John Asher, in a Ghost Whisperer episode called “Dead Eye.” It airs tonight 4/9/10.

Jennifer Love Hewitt waited a hot minute before dating another co-star in the wake of her breakup with Jamie Kennedy. According to both Life & Style and The National Enquirer, Hewitt, 31, is dating an actor named John Asher, 39, who divorced Jenny McCarthy in 2005. (Jenny and John have son Evan, 7, together.) Hewitt hooked up with Asher the same way she met her last two boyfriends – on the set of her hit TV show, Ghost Whisperer. Enquirer and L&S have Hewitt and Asher spotted at different events looking coupled up, so it sounds like this is happening.

Less than a month after her romance with Jamie Kennedy ended, Jennifer Love Hewitt appears to have found a new Mr. Right — and he’s a friend of Jamie’s! Jennifer was spotted at a small March 27 dinner party with actor and director John Asher, Jenny McCarthy’s ex-husband (and father of Jenny’s 7-year-old son, Evan). “Jennifer was all over him,” an eyewitness tells Life & Style. “They were holding hands and canoodling. She was not hiding her affection or attraction to him at all. ” – From Life & Style

Jennifer was spotted getting cozy with… Asher, 39, at a bookstore where she was signing copies of her new book…

“The two of them definitely gave off a ‘new couple’ vibe, very into each other. There were lots of smiles and touchy-feely playfulness,” an eyewitness told the Enquirer.

Would it kill Jennifer Love Hewitt to wait a while before she jumps into another long term relationship? She’s admitted on her book tour that she doesn’t date much and just has boyfriends. It’s like she’s so focused on that damn engagement ring she visits every month that she can’t relax and enjoy life. I like her, though, and hope she’s happy. She’s practically holding her breath until she gets married and maybe it will finally happen for her. It’s not the best sign that the guys a divorcee who already has a kid, but it could work out.

That said, Asher might not be the best catch. He kisses and tells and once told a radio station about threesomes he had with McCarthy and other women. He also called her a “freak in the sack.” Apparently their relationship ended due to the stress over their son Evan’s autism. Maybe the guy has matured since he spilled the beans on his ex wife last year. It’s not the best sign, though, when a guy brags to the press about his ex being a sex freak. Given Hewitt’s penchant for oversharing, she may have met her match.

    Even though I adored his mother (Elizabeth Montgomery from Bewitched) he sounds like a real jerk. It’s hard to think much of a man that couldn’t help raise his autistic child. Then he goes on to talk about his child’s mother in that light.

    Have fun with that, JLH.

    Her inability to go without a boyfriend for 2 seconds is really annoying and ridiculous. She doesn’t seem like a bad person or a mean girl or anything, but I just can’t like her because she’s just so…I don’t know.

    I know autism and other issues often lead to parents divorcing, but to turn around and talk about his ex that way is a disgrace.

    Good lord, does she have a type or what? She really has a thing for the sadsack droopy eyed douchebag that thinks he’s all that. Blech.

    He scored with one the Beatles? Freaky.

    She seems nice and all, but we all know women like this and it’s hard not to find it pathetic after a while. Introspection doesn’t give you cancer. Instead of breathlessly lusting after the altar (which, as we know, is the prime and sole reason women exist), try evolving into a person who someone would like to marry. If I were a man, I’d get pretty freaked out upon realizing that my partner only sees me as a means to an end.

    Introspection: it’s not cancer, so try it. It’s new, but it’s good.

    Jennie Love is quite a find for Asher. Hope he appreciates an absolute gem. She is much more refined than Jenny Mc Carthy.

    Okay, she’s a serial dater. We all know people like her, and it’s like a virus with them. A true friend would explain to her that when you stop looking for that perfect someone, and find you are content on your own, that’s when Mr. Perfect comes along. I know this from experience.

    3 years after my divorce and a year after dating someone who thought I’d be great to date for life but not marry, I decided I would be just fine raising my children on my own. If it was God’s will for me to meet someone when my kids were adults, that was fine with me. If it was His will for me to spend the rest of my life solo, that was fine with me too. And I kid you not, it wasn’t more than maybe 2 weeks later I met the man I married. When we stop being so desperate, amazing things happen.

    Not sure this one will last either. Yeah, he is divorced and has a child, but I wouldn’t hold that against him. There are tons of people like this that end up in successful (second) marriages. Funny how JLH has never been married or had children, but she seems like she will never have a healthy, successful relationship.

  8. Jeri says:

    Read previous post of his over-sharing about Jenny (his ex). He’s a step child of one of Elizabeth Montgomery’s exes.

  9. Scarlet Vixen says:

    According to he’s actually been married and divorced twice.

    And I’m not a fan of talking about your sex life in public. But, Jenny McCarthy was in Playboy and very open about that kinda stuff, so all the sex talk prolly wasn’t really news to alot of people…
