The View star Jenny McCarthy is slamming reports that her son Evan, 11, doesn’t have autism. On Friday, a 2010 article stating that Evan was likely misdiagnosed resurfaced.
“Stories circulating online, claiming that I said my son Evan may not have autism after all, are blatantly inaccurate and completely ridiculous,” McCarthy tweeted on January 3.
“Evan was diagnosed with autism by the Autism Evaluation Clinic at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital and was confirmed by the State of California (through their Regional Center).” she continued. “The implication that I have changed my position, that my child was not initially diagnosed with autism (and instead may suffer from Landau-Kleffner Syndrome), is both irresponsible and inaccurate.”
She added: “These stories cite a ‘new’ Time Magazine interview with me, which was actually published in 2010, that never contained any such statements by me. Continued misrepresentations, such as these, only serve to open wounds of the many families who are courageously dealing with this disorder. Please know that I am taking every legal measure necessary to set this straight.”
While McCarthy says that Evan was not misdiagnosed, she claims that he has “recovered” from autism.

I know there are a whole lot of people out there who don’t like Jenny McCarthy. I suppose I can see why but it’s not a feeling I share. I love this babe. I think she’s absolutely fantastic. Sure she’s loud and brash but I think that’s what I like most about her. You don’t see a lot of stunningly beautiful women with personalities like Jenny’s. She’s weird but that’s what makes her unique. That’s what makes her Jenny McCarthy. In these photos from the Encore Beach Club at Wynn Las Vegas, Jenny is, well, being Jenny. She looks like she’s the life of the party just like she usually is. I don’t think I’d want to spend a lot of time with her because I’m pretty sure it would be exhausting but I’ll stare at her pictures any time. Love this woman … just in case I wasn’t clear about that.
Jenny McCarthy is looking for love – but don’t date her if you don’t like kids. Because of a recent date with a guy – she has to meet someone with a certain criteria.
McCarthy – who is mom to 10-year-old Evan – told People over the weekend, “I was set up by a friend. I flew to the city this guy was in. That’s how much I believe in love. I checked into a hotel, got ready. I went to the restaurant and sat down. Five minutes – maybe two minutes into the conversion – he talked about how much he despised kids.”
The host of The Jenny McCarthy Show added, “He wanted to set the tone that he wasn’t planning on being a substitute father but he was there for a good time. I didn’t even get to the check. I said, ‘Excuse me.’ I got up and grabbed my purse and walked out the door and flew home.”
“Because of that date I do a criteria check before every date. Number one is, ‘Do you like kids?’ And number two is, ‘Do you have kids?’”
With her busy work schedule she is looking. She joked, “I’m looking. I’m not looking that hard because I’m so busy, but I’m looking. My ears and my chest is open. I mean, my heart … is open.”
A few short hours ago, I posted photos of Shauna Sand and was maybe a little harsh on her for all the plastic surgery she’s had. I know to some it may seem hypocritical to not do the same to Jenny McCarthy as she’s had a bit of work done as well, but here’s the different to me. Jenny still basically looks like herself. She hasn’t morphed into a completely different looking person. I think she’s used cosmetic surgery to enhance and maintain what she was naturally blessed with. Shauna Sand … has not. I don’t even think it’s possible to compare the two. I’m not against plastic surgery. If I had the money, I would probably have a thing or two done but I think it needs to be done right and not used to try to make a person into someone else. For that reason, I’m fine with whatever work Jenny’s had done. She’s a babe – strong, confident and a little crazy – and she still looks unbelievably good in a bikini.
Again, slutty costumes and Halloween go hand in hand. Halloween is the one time a year when ‘slutty’ isn’t an insult and I mean that with complete sincerity. I dressed up as one of Dexter Morgan’s victims for Halloween a few years back and was the first to admit that was a slutty costume (saran wrap over a bikini and nothing else but a red mark on my cheek) so don’t misunderstand me. When I refer to Jenny McCarthy’s slutty Halloween costume, it’s not a shot at her. It’s just a fact. She’s wearing lingerie and little else. Slutty. Also, entirely acceptable on Halloween. I love these photos of Jenny in Vegas and I love her costume. While I think the slutty cat thing is a bit overdone, there are some women who can pull it off and Jenny is definitely one of those women. The leopard print lingerie was a great touch.
Okay, I’ll admit it. I have no idea of Jenny McCarthy is doing yoga or Pilates or something else entirely in these photos but whatever she’s doing, it’s working for her. This woman is gorgeous – absolutely stunning. Her body is magnificent. There just isn’t anything at all to complain about with these pictures. I know that her body is incredible and everything but I think it’s really her eyes that sell me on her. There is just something about those pretty peepers that makes my heart skip a beat. I always like seeing women with fantastic bodies working out as well, so these pictures are great in that respect. It just reminds me that while good genes are probably involved along with a decent diet, these women do work for the figure they have. I love everything about Jenny – one of my absolute favorites.
I’m not sure what’s going on with all the Jenny McCarthy photos I’m getting assigned these days but I can tell you I’m pretty happy about them. This woman kills me – absolutely destroys me. She’s not your average beautiful blond starlet. She’s ballsy. She isn’t afraid to say things no other women say. She isn’t afraid to put all her crazy out there for the world to see. She’s just the kind of girl that does what she wants and doesn’t apologize. There just aren’t many women in the entertainment industry that have that kind of attitude. There should be more. Hollywood would be a much less monotonous place. Sure she’s hot and unbelievably sexy but she also knows how to get people talking. Love her. Keep the pictures coming!
Remember when Jenny McCarthy was dating Jim Carey? Wasn’t that weird? I guess nothing is ever quite what one would expect with Jenny McCarthy. She is a master at keeping people on their toes. The only thing you ever know for sure with Jenny is that no matter where she goes, no matter what she does and no matter who she’s with, she’ll always look fantastic. In these photos, taken in Chicago, Jenny looks smoking hot as she poses poolside in a bikini. With some women, just looking hot all the time gets a little boring, but Jenny keeps things interesting. It’s not so much how she looks but how she acts, how she carries herself and the things she says. I love this woman. She’s always entertaining even if that doesn’t always come across in pictures.
Okay Jenny McCarthy is hot and I’ll get to that but first, holy cow! Is that Brian from “Hell’s Kitchen” and is he wearing a black “executive chef” jacket? I was pretty sure he got kicked out of “Hell’s Kitchen” but they did just bring back a past contestant on “Masterchef”. “Hell’s Kitchen” spoiler? Probably not as these photos were taken in Chicago and the winner got the executive chef spot at Gordon Ramsay Steak in Vegas. I don’t care either way. I freaking love Brian. He was by far my favorite contestant this season and I wanted to see him win so badly. Clearly he’s not doing to badly for himself if he didn’t. “What does this taste like?” “Fish?” Classic. I thought Ramsay’s head was going to explode. Poor Brian. Seriously though, how could would it be if Jenny and Brian hooked up? Awesome, I say. Jenny is a bit crazy, sure, but she’s also super hot. See? I said I’d get to it.
I have been seeing Jenny McCarthy around for years and years now and it seems like she hasn’t aged at all. Maybe she has had a little help from a plastic surgeon but in all honesty, I think her youthful appearance can be attributed, at least in part, to her youthful attitude. Jenny has always struck me as the type of girl that just loves having fun. She’s free spirited, speaks her mind and doesn’t care about being prim and proper all the time. I respect that and I find that appealing. Jenny just is who she is. She always has been and she has never apologized for that. Is she a bit trashy? Sure, but she completely owns it. Love this woman and I love these pictures.
Jenny McCarthy called Jim Carrey out Monday on Howard Stern’s radio show (which seems like an odd place to talk parenting). Jenny made it clear that Jim doesn’t see her autistic son nearly enough,
“I’ve tried to ask (Jim) numerous times (to see Evan), because he still asks. As a mother, you just hope when you have a relationship with someone, it has nothing to do with the child when you break up. I tell Evan that someday you’ll cross paths, meet again…(but) it’s hard. He’s been in therapy. It’s a process, he’s working on it.” McCarthy said on Howard Stern’s radio show.
Well, Jim Carrey has responded to her comments with his own little statement, “I will always do what I believe is in the best interest of Evan’s well being. It’s unfortunate that Evan’s privacy is not being considered. I love Evan very much and will miss him always.”
So, it sounds like Carrey thinks not seeing Evan at all is the best thing to do, and he might be right. It might make it harder on Evan if Carrey went in and out of his life. Plus McCarthy is already dating a new man now (Brian Urlacher) having three different men in his life would be pretty tough on the kid.
Bottom line: This stuff should be kept private. McCarthy shouldn’t be discussing it with Howard Stern.
That’s right, folks! Jenny McCarthy will pose nude for Playboy’s July/August issue. It’s been almost 20 years since she has posed nude for the magazine, so this is really a surprising comeback. Jenny is 40-years-old now and a mom, but she isn’t letting that stop her from showing the goods.
She made $20,000 back in 1993 when she posed nude for the magazine and she earned the title of Playmate of the Month, and Playmate of the Year.
“All I wanted to do [when she began in the industry] was work with my clothes on, and now I just hope to get them off!” Jenny told E! earlier this week.
Well, you will not be hearing any complaints from The Daily Fix. Jenny still looks incredibly hot for her age! We can’t wait to see her naked…did that sound weird? Oh well.
Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough is braless, seethroughy and set to play a stripper. Grandpa would be proud.
Matthew McConaughey and his itchy balls.
Kim Kardashian needs a little attention now. Enough with everybody else.
Motherhood really suits Penelope Cruz. NOT!!
Liev Schreiber used to be a leading man. Now he’s a mule for his offsprings. Parenthood is great, isn’t it?
Rosie Huntington is also training with that trainer called Mr. McVomity.
Amber Rose still thinks NYC is Mars.
Jenny McCarthy without make-up. Wow, so it was Jim Carey all along!
Arnold Schwarzenegger is forced to have lunch with Maria Schriver for the sake of the kids. Their happiness is just palpable isn’t it?
I’ve always been a big Jenny McCarthy fan. I don’t like her acting or her movies but I love her personality. She’s one of those super hot babes that can hang with the boys and fit in perfectly. That takes a special kind of girl and Jenny is definitely it. She gets a bit of a hard time in Hollywood for being a little less than ladylike and some people like to call her crazy, but she’s the good, fun kind of crazy and I love that about her. Here in Malibu, Jenny shows off her still buff body and looks to be having a great time while she does it. I’m not sure who the guy is although I feel like I probably should. It’s hard to say with Jenny, though. She doesn’t seem like the type of girl who gets all hung up on settling down and getting married. She’s a sexy girl enjoying her life and that’s pretty alluring. I love this woman – crazy or not.
I’ve always been a big Jenny McCarthy fan. She seems like the type of woman that is happier drinking beer with the boys than getting her hair and nails done at a salon, and that really appeals to me. Sure she has a bad track record with romance but there aren’t many women in Hollywood who don’t. She’s in charge of her own sexuality and she’s open about who she is. She can be crass and rude, but she is unapologetically Jenny and I love that about her. It doesn’t hurt that she’s also very pretty and has a killer body she isn’t afraid to show off. I don’t always agree with everything she says, but I’d never argue with pictures of her in a bikini.
Jenny McCarthy was spotted showing off her beautiful curves in Miami this afternoon. Agreed that she’s doing nothing else but picking and adjusting her bikini (both top and bottom) in the whole sequence, but I must say she’s looking totally hot in that red bikini. Jenny still has an amazing bikini body. I mean, she’s in excellent shape for a woman who’s about to turn 38 this coming November. Go Jenny! Check out the gallery after the jump.

Jenny McCarthy is promoting her new book, ‘Love, Lust & Faking It: The Naked Truth about Sex, Lies, And True Romance,’ and she sat down with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush for a sexy interview.
“Dispel a myth for men: Do women lust as much as men lust?” Billy asked “I’ve noticed, now being 37, I’m much more horny than I was in my 20s,” she said.”How horny are you – scale of 1-10?” Billy asked.”I’m about a 9.8,” Jenny laughed, uproariously.
“Does size matter?” he probed.”Size definitely helps, but the thing is, you don’t need big,” she said. “Average is awesome. Standard issue is awesome!” “Do you have a sex tape?” Billy asked.”Oh, I love that question. No I don’t have a sex tape and I’m kind of upset that I don’t. You know why? ‘Cause I’m really good,” she laughed.
From caring and concerned mom back to hooker-like behavior. That mom thing didn’t last long did it Jenny?
Oh but Jenny, how I’d still double bag and nail you, if nothing more than for a nostalgia kinda thing. I busted out many a nut to this broad in my early pubescent days. It was Pam Anderson, Jenny McCarthy, Carmen Electra and Anna Nicole Smith. Look at them all now…
The celebs certainly know how to keep things dramatic! While we love watching their well-scripted scenes, we much prefer hearing them speak their own minds. Check out some of the most controversial quotes about kids and parenting from a few of our favorite (?) celebrities.
Tom Cruise Says Vitamins Cure Postpartum Depression:
We all loved Tom Cruise rockin' his tighty whiteys in Risky Business and as the emotionally-stunted sports agent in Jerry Maguire. And ooooooh, that love scene in Top Gun! But after Tom criticized Brooke Shields' use of antidepressants for her postpartum depression following the birth of her daughter Rowan, his female fan base disappeared almost overnight. Here's what the famous scientologist said to Access Hollywood's Billy Bush in that infamous interview.
Jenny McCarthy and her 7-year-old son Evan got into the festive spirit at the ABC Family's Elf Party, held at New York's Bryant Park on Monday (December 7). Jenny wore a Mrs. Claus suit while Evan dressed up as an elf.
Fellow celeb parents, Candace Cameron Bure and Dean McDermott, joined in on the event that was recognized by Guinness World Records as the largest ever gathering of Santa's Elves in the world.
