Jenny McCarthy

I know we most often point at Kim Kardashian and Courtney Stodden as examples of “seriously, how are you famous?” But I feel like we’re glazing over the most confusing case: Jenny McCarthy, a woman who rose to prominence by farting on MTV and pooping her pants at Playboy autograph signings, and now people take medical advice from her. SERIOUSLY. Anyway, not content to be paid for … whatever it is she does, apparently she tried to get on The Bachelorette, only to be turned down.

“No one knew that!” McCarthy exclaimed. “When I got a divorce, I was lonely. I needed to be loved.” Auditioning for a reality show isn’t exactly the most typical reaction to a break up, and McCarthy seems to admit that it was a bit of a snap decision. “I was single and I loved TV. Put those together and I thought, ‘Brilliant!'” Apparently, McCarthy even had her agent call ABC to give her an edge on the applicant pool. The network was not interested, but that hardly seems to matter to McCarthy now. She recalls, “They said, ‘No, we’re not using celebrities at this time. Sorry.’ That was 10 years ago. So, pfft.” SOURCE

So yeah, Jenny McCarthy thinks she can find love by doing 20+ people simultaneously and then picking the one she likes the most. Or the ones the producers set up for her. Either / or. To be fair, she also thinks kids get autism from flu shots, so yeah, comparatively finding love on a heavily manipulated reality TV show almost makes sense.
