I don't think I ever said, "I want to be an actress." But for Halloween, I dressed up as a movie star from when I was seven to when I was twelve. The costume was always a long dress, with makeup, and my hair curled, and jewelry on. And the movie star was always Jenny McCarthy. So right there you could see a little pattern.— Jenny McCarthy
The most terrific Jenny McCarthy quotes that are easy to memorize and remember
I guess now that I think back, I used to play priest and be a funny priest.
I don't know, I grew up in such a Catholic family that I kind of liked to test the boundaries a little bit and I think I had fun watching my mom laugh.
My philosophy of dating is to just fart right away.
Almost everyone has or will experience getting dumped in their lifetime.
Unless, of course, you're a nun. Jesus can't dump nuns.
At one point, my house was a school for autistic children.
I opened up my doors to about 30 kids and their families at the time. I was turning into Mary Poppins because I had to do something for these kids who have nowhere to go. So my house was the school for two years.
Obviously, I'm not a trained actress, and right now I'll come out and say I'm glad I'm not.
I deserve to be happy and I think a lot of people stay in relationships for wrong reasons and instead of just looking at each other and just saying, 'you know, it's like sands of the hourglass, we learned our lessons, we can end in war or we can end in peace.'
Craziest thing I've done for love is getting married.
I think it's crazy. I think it's crazy, crazy, crazy. I'm never going to say I wouldn't do it again but I have to make sure it's love and not settling for the 'I have to do this by a certain age,' which is kind of what I did.
So basically, I don't know what I'm talking about. But maybe I do.
For a seriously autistic kid, the best prognosis might be getting into a mainstream school without being too much of a shadow. For a moderately autistic kid the best prognosis is full recovery.
My tricks are, I get Botox in my forehead-I just have my doctor do a little shot there. if you overdo, it looks bad. I believe in just a little bit. It allows you to keep that mobility in your face. It's a great little secret.
All those girls who were mean to me[in high school], I pay them back by going through the drive-through window and asking for my burger. That feels really great.
I love Botox, I absolutely love it. I get it minimally so I can still move my face. But I really do think it's a savior.
People don't see this side of me. They don't know I read, like, 800 million spiritual books. Lately I am just really getting into a lot of spirituality.
The first time I punched in my name and saw how many sites there were, I thought, that's scary. I got too involved where I got worried and panicked and tried to stop it. But you know what, if I just let it go and not worry about it, then it will be fine. Because it's all about how it makes me feel and I was letting it get to me.
I'm so scared girls look at my breast implants and think, 'To get boys, you need big boobs.' I tell them, 'Don't get it done. Those fears go away. You develop other insecurities, but breasts aren't one of them.' I want to get them half-size.
Kids will not listen to that. They're going to experiment no matter what, so you have to be honest.
When I travel, I like to take advantage of room service.
I'm really into eggs Benedict in the morning.
I went to an all-girls Catholic school.
And all the nuns just breathed down our necks "abstinence." And that's not the right thing to do. It does not work. Kids will not listen to that. They're going to experiment no matter what, so you have to be honest. You have to say, "You know what, if you're gonna do it, at least think about the consequences and get protection.
When I first went public with my son Evan's story, I just planned to talk about the 'R' word - Recovery. But soon I was spending most my time talking about the 'V' word - vaccines.
People are also dying from vaccinations.
Evan, my son, died in front of me for two minutes. You ask any mother in the autism community if we'll take the flu, the measles, over autism and day of the week. I think they need to wake up and stop hurting our kids.
Because they've either conveniently forgotten with time or they're trying to be supportive, most mothers won't tell you how hard pregnancy (and then childbirth) can be. Let me tell you, it is. It's brutal sometimes! But, if I did it, ANYONE can do it. I mean, I always knew I was meant to do something really BIG in life, and now I know that this was it. Screw winning an Academy Award someday ... I GAVE BIRTH
Waking your kids up for school the first day after a break is almost as much fun as birthing them was.
The reason why [the medical community] is reluctant to talk about it is because there's such a huge business in pharmaceuticals.
I can't even begin to tell you how many casting couches I was attacked on.
Not just by casting people, but by stars. And when I wouldn't give them my number, they'd say, "Who the hell do you think you are? You will never make it in this town. I'll make sure of it."
I'm the worst person to tell anybody how to date.
Sometimes I think marriage licenses should be like driver's licenses.
They expire after a number of years, and in order to keep going you have to renew. Wouldn't that be kind of genius? It would force you both to look at the relationship, and if it's not working, the marriage would expire so you could go on your merry way, or on the positive side of it, you could look at each other and say we really want to renew. What a way to keep it fresh!!
What are friends for? They are the ultimate reflection of yourself.
Always surround yourself with people who inspire you and return the favor by giving them the best of you.
Let me see if I can put this in scientific terms: Think of autism like a fart, and vaccines are the finger you pull to make it happen.
Following bio-medical treatment - which is basically changing the diet, giving vitamins and supplements and detoxing the body from metals or candida - and he recovered. And the reason the medical community has such a hard time with this is because we are treating and healing a vaccine injury ... this is truly a revolution.
A talk show is difficult because the formula is always the same: there's a host and there's guests. Really what you can change is only so much. So, I don't have any pre-interviews, which forces real conversation.
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.
I didn't have to work out before 35 but now I have to.
Without a doubt in my mind, I believe that vaccinations triggered Evan's autism.
I tried a few times, unsuccessfully, to lose weight.
It wasn't until I joined Weight Watchers that I was finally able to do it. I went to meetings and my son came with me. The best thing was that I could eat what I wanted and still lose weight. Slow and steady, I was getting my pre-pregnancy body back.
Just keep trying, and your dreams will come true.
But you have to give it all your time, effort, and soul.
