Don’t take medical advice from the chick from ‘Singled Out’


Yeah, so, apparently people take medical advice from Jenny McCarthy. This is a thing now?

Jenny McCarthy believes that vaccinations cause autism in children. Doctors say that’s not true.

Gosh, I don’t know who to believe: the people who actually went to school and are educated about this sort of thing; OR, the lady that co-hosted a dating show on MTV in the 90s?

I just don’t know what to think. I mean, I’ve been vaccinated, and I don’t have autism, and doctors are really smart, but the blond lady who had a small role in “Baseketball” seems like she really knows what she is talking about.

"I've totally cured autism. Eyes up here, you guys!"

“I’ve totally cured autism. Eyes up here, you guys!”

You guys, come on. Don’t take medical advice from Jenny McCarthy. That’s just silly. You are way smarter than this. Jenny McCarthy dated Jim Carrey once, so obviously she makes poor decisions. You’d be better off consulting a Magic 8 Ball before making any medical decisions.

The reason Jenny McCarthy and her ridiculous views are even in the news is because Jenny McCarthy is joining “The View.” Elisabeth Hasselbeck left to be with her people on FOX News, and they needed to replace her with another blond dum-dum who is wrong about stuff. People have started all these petitions to try to get ABC to change their minds. I suspect that won’t work. I’d like to think that if McCarthy brings up her “science” that the other ladies would shoot her down, but – of course – that won’t happen. Someone on that show seriously believes the Earth is flat and another doesn’t think rape is rape rape, so I’m sure Jenny McCarthy will fit right in.

Now, if you will excuse me, I’m thinking about circumcising my son, but I need to find out what Martha Quinn thinks about it first …

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. Now I’m going to have that Mojo Nixon song about Martha Quinn stuck in my head all day.

  2. I was telling my husband about this today and he said Jenny McCarthy was on Howard Stern a while back and apparently she said she’s cool with vaccines now and that she was just a little crazy for a while. SERIOUSLY. Not that it matters, it’s not like she went on an oh-hey-I’m-no-longer-anti-vaccine crusade to try to save all the poor slobs who listened to her in the first place. The damage has been done. Should make for some good daytime TV train wrecks though.

    • You’d think, given the uproar yesterday, that she would have issued a statement or something. And yeah, what about the people that listened to her? Oh, and, people listened to her?! WTF?!

  3. I need some advice from Nina Blackwood about pap smears. … No joke. I’m sure she knows a good obgyn. But never, I mean never, ask Kennedy about Planned Parenthood. She’s got nothing good to say.

  4. Gwyneth Paltrow has jumped on the Cupping Therapy bandwagon. She’s a cute blond; sign me up!
