Jenny McCarthy Wants To Be Your Love Guru Since Her Anti-Vaccine Movement Flopped

By  | 


It took me a really long time to lose my warm feelings toward Jenny McCarthy, but she has made it damn near impossible to live my life openly as a diehard Singled Out fan. (#singledout4evah) We all know the embarrassment that was the Jenny McCarthy anti-vaccine movement. Now, it seems that Jenny is still looking for her time in the sun and has chosen to abruptly switch gears—by offering her love advice to anyone who will listen.

The View cohost Jenny McCarthy may play the dumb blonde role in Hollywood, but she clearly is no dummy. She has just released her tenth book called Stirring the Pot: My Recipe for Getting What You Want Out of Life. The book promises advice on how to create the “life of your dreams.”

Here are a few excerpts from her interview:

I was looking at a cookbook, and look at all these ingredients just to make a meal, and I wish there were ingredients to get what you want out of life. What does it take to get certain things done? And I was like, ‘Wow, no one’s really done that kind of format in a book.’

It’s really, really hard, because the single mom syndrome is number one, you’re probably working, so you’re away from your baby, and then, to have to leave your kid more to go on dates is painful. So you better make sure that every guy that you say yes to go on a date [with] is worth being away from your kid.

I made the mistake of years ago, telling Evan that sex was foot rubs, cuz I just felt like he was too young to know what sex was. So I was just like, ‘Sex is when people give foot rubs.’ So I was looking at his iPad the other day, and I went to go into look at his photos, and he’s like, ‘You can’t go in there, there’s inappropriate photos.’ And I clicked on it, thinking there were going to be sexual pictures, being that he’s going through this age … and there were pictures of foot rubs!

Okay, I have to admit—some of her little anecdotes sound funny and very Jenny McCarthy-esque. It also seems like this book may be a great read for single mothers as she is very open about her life as a single mom of a young son. But before you click on over to Amazon and buy the book for yourself, I have to call it like I see it. This seems like the perfect publicity stunt to take the attention off the recent anti-vaccination train wreck created by Jenny herself.

Jenny McCarthy was quoted in the Chicago Sun-Times just a mere month ago claiming not to be anti-vaxx. She stated, “This is not a change in my stance nor is it a new position that I have recently adopted. For years, I have repeatedly stated that I am, in fact, ‘pro-vaccine’ and for years I have been wrongly branded as ‘anti-vaccine.’”

Hmm. Jenny McCarthy’s reputation is questionable and confusing at best. I’m not questioning her ability as a mother because I firmly believe it is a DICK MOVE to question what you don’t know. She appears to be a very loving mother to her son. I am questioning some of her beliefs, especially some of the statements she has made in the past about vaccination with the potential to lead other parents astray. I still love my Singled Out Jenny, but I won’t be taking her love and life advice anytime soon.
