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.
