Jenny McCarthy, who recently married Donnie Wahlberg and who isn’t fooling anyone with those goddamn glasses, caught flak earlier this year when she tweeted the following joke “Did Jennifer Lopez’s boyfriend cheat with a transsexual model? I heard JLo gave him an ultimatum: ‘it’s either me or her/him!’”
Oh, Jenny. You really know how to push the boundaries of comedy, don’t you? Did you get that joke from the Don Rickles’ slush pile?
But don’t fret, y’all. Jenny is allowed to make trans jokes because she’s practically transgender herself. Remember, she played a transgender woman on Just Shoot Me back in the 1990s, and that was a role with which she really connected.
“I feel like that inside. I always felt like one of the guys wearing, like, a Playboy bunny outfit. I was David Spade’s buddy to begin with, so I was a natural fit, and I always felt like his brother. To play kind of the dude was almost too scary natural.”
“Too scary natural,” huh? Riiiiight. I’m not sure how to wrap my brain around that one, but let’s go on to the next idiotic quote to come out of her mouth. Asked how she would feel if her son came out as gay, McCarthy told PrideSource:
“Oh my god, I would be so excited. We can shop! Do my hair!”
Yes, exactly, McCarthy. Because obviously, if your son is gay, he’s going to want to shop with you and do your hair, because no gay man can resist Bloomingdales and the spa with his Mom, and if he’s straight, clearly, he will want to grunt and pull you around by your ponytail, because stereotypes are fun!
