Jenny McCarthy, who has been slammed for her stance on vaccinations, reiterated that she is not anti-vaccine despite previously saying vaccines cause autism. Jenny also raved about her steamy sex life with husband Donnie Wahlberg in embarrassing detail, calling his penis “beautiful.”
“I am not anti-vaccine,” McCarthy told the Daily Beast. “I think everyone should be aware and educate yourself and ask questions. If your kid is having a problem, ask your doctor for an alternative way of doing the shots. For example, fewer vaccination doses at the same time. The ironic thing is my position has always remained the same. People just never listened to it.”
Jenny was labeled as anti-vaccine after stating in a 2009 Time magazine interview that she believes vaccines cause autism. In that interview, McCarthy suggested that parents have to choose between getting their child vaccinated or contracting autism. “If you ask a parent of an autistic child if they want the measles or autism, we will stand in line for the f-cking measles,” she said.
McCarthy has a 12-year-old son, Evan, who was diagnosed with autism in 2005. Jenny has courted controversy over the years after saying Evan’s autism was caused by the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine he received as a baby. In 2007, Jenny was heavily criticized after launching an anti-vaccination movement.
McCarthy said her son is doing great these days, but has suffered minor brain damage because of his seizures. “Evan’s amazing,” said Jenny. “He has a little bit of brain damage due to his seizures. He doesn’t qualify for any more services, but he does have issues in his school.”
Autism is a developmental disability characterized by difficulty with communication and social interaction. There is no known cause or cure for autism. Autism now affects one in 68 children.
Jenny also said she’s very happy since marrying former New Kids on the Block singer Donnie Wahlberg (the brother of actor Mark Wahlberg) in August 2014. McCarthy called Donnie the best husband ever and raved about him on Bravo TV’s “Watch What Happens Live.”
“I feel good, because I’m in a good place,” she said. “He definitely brings out the best in me, and I think I do the same for him.”
McCarthy also discussed Donnie’s penis in graphic detail. “Without a doubt, it gets better every single time I make love to him,” Jenny gushed. “He has the most beautiful penis I’ve ever seen in my life. But you know what it is? He knows how to [use it]! The size is perfect. It fits my vagina perfectly and hits the spots right.”
