Jennifer Ann "Jenny" McCarthy (born November 1, 1972 in Evergreen Park, Illinois) is an American model, television host, comedic actress, author, and anti-vaccine activist.
She began her career in 1993 as a nude model for Playboy magazine and was later named their Playmate of the Year. McCarthy then parlayed her Playboy fame into a television and film acting career.
She is a former co-host of the ABC talk show The View. McCarthy has written books about parenting, and has become an activist promoting research into environmental causes and alternative medical treatments for autism.
She has claimed that vaccines cause autism and that chelation therapy helped cure her son of autism. Both claims are unsupported by medical consensus, and her son's autism diagnosis has been questioned. McCarthy has been described as "the nation’s most prominent purveyor of anti-vaxxer ideology", but she has denied the charge, stating "I am not anti-vaccine."
McCarthy dated manager Ray Manzella from 1994 until 1998. McCarthy began dating actor/director John Mallory Asher late in 1998. The couple became engaged in January 1999, and married on September 11 of that year. They have a son, Evan Joseph, born on May 18, 2002, who was diagnosed with autism on May 10, 2005.
McCarthy and Asher divorced in September 2005. In December 2005, McCarthy began dating actor Jim Carrey. They did not make their relationship public until June 2006. She announced on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 2, 2008 that she and Carrey were living together, but had no plans to marry, as they did not need a "piece of paper." Carrey almost made a mock proposal to McCarthy as a promotion to the film Yes Man for Ellen's Twelve Days of Holidays.
McCarthy and Carrey announced that they had split up in April 2010. In July 2013, she stated that she was dating Donnie Wahlberg. On April 16, 2014 McCarthy announced live on The View that she and Wahlberg were engaged, and they wed on August 31, 2014.
