Poor Jenny McCarthy – OpEd


Last night on “Access Hollywood,” Playboy Playmate Jenny McCarthy discussed her new book, Bad Habits; she is featured on the cover dressed as a nun. She recounted a story from 1995 when she was in Italy. She claims that a few “mafia” guys brought her to the pope’s apartment (he was allegedly out-of-town) where she tried on some of his clothes. At the suggestion of her Jewish friends, she allegedly grabbed a crucifix as a souvenir for her mother.

Poor Jenny. She has not had an easy life. A single mother, she once had this to say of her son’s seizures: “When your kid is psychotic or crazy, you go into a place of shock so you can remain calm.” Must be some “place.” She’s also said that her son contracted autism from the MMR vaccine and that he was healed through experimental treatments.

Jenny is also known for doing ads while sitting on a toilet. In a TV commercial that never aired, she was shown passing gas in a crowded elevator. On her own MTV show, she once played a character who vomits on a table to remember what she had for lunch, only to eat it again. In her new book, she tells how she and thirteen other Playmates got high on Ecstasy and then began making out on a beach. No wonder she’s a celebrity.

Regarding religion, 15 years ago Jenny said she still thinks of herself as a Catholic, insisting that “I broke free from the chain of the pope.” Free at last, she opined, “The Catholic religion was making me feel a tad bit guilty for everything I was doing.” Call her what you want, but at least she’s not a total sociopath.

Now you know why the Catholic League can’t get too worked up about poor Jenny.
