Ever heard that old adage nothing is certain except death and taxes? We’re going to need to amend it to make room for a third option: Jenny McCarthy will forever and always make someone else’s shit about her.
On her XM radio show Dirty Sexy Funny (Eyeroll), Jenny–who co-starred on Two and a Half Men with Charlie Sheen from 2007 to 2011–bitched about being left of the list of Slores In the Know when it came to his HIV-positive status when she has to fill out a form disclosing her cold sores.
“Now being on Two and a Half Men myself, I feel like in playing a love interest, you would think there would be some type of — I don’t want to say criminal issue — but I don’t even know how to feel about that.”
“I don’t even know how to feel about that. I’m like, ‘Wait a second. If I have to be up front about a herpe, how could you not be up front about HIV? I look back and I’m like, ‘Okay, that would have been some valuable information.’ Look how many people have played his love interest on the show. I mean, not that you can obviously get it through kissing, but still that’s a big deal.”
On a scale of telling your kids too much candy will rot their teeth, then horking down four of the six pounds of jelly beans from their Easter baskets after they go to bed to an anti-bullying advocate shaking a scrawny bitch down for their lunch money, how hypocritical is it of me to completely understand Jenny’s point but wish someone I liked and respected more had said it? Instead of someone who heard Charlie’s announcement on Monday and probably immediately reached for the udders to see how much attention and press she could milk out of her connection to him. Ugh. I hate it when two assholes I loathe for different reasons work to out-dick each other.
Charlie’s rep–who’d better be scoring one hell of a box of Omaha steaks from his client this year–said the reason Charlie didn’t tell Jenny a damn thing about his HIV is because when they were on the show, there was nothing to tell.
“Charlie was infected long after he left Two and a Half Men and long after he worked with Jenny.”
I could go on and on forever bitching about the amount of fuckery afoot with all of this, but it’s pre-Friday and I don’t want to blow a gasket before the weekend.
