Celebrity mom Jenny McCarthy has upset many with her firm stance that there’s a link between vaccinations and autism. A recent medical journal report claims that no such connection exists, but Jenny, who has written two books on her own experiences, stands firm:
“People aren’t just listening to what this doctor has said, or listening to me. People are listening to their neighbors and friends. That’s why this story has stayed so powerful. How many times in the media have they tried to disprove the connection? Numerous times. But why does it keep coming up? It’s the power of the people. Many, many more parents out there are still concerned about that connection.”
Jenny’s son Evan recently suffered a seizure and she shares that she relives the nightmare of past seizures:
“I count my blessings every day. We’ve been through hell and back. I was on the treadmill [recently] and burst out crying, thinking of a time when he’d had a seizure and I had to call 911. I’m still living those mommy nightmares. But he’s alive, talking and happy — and everything is OK.”
Jenny shares that Evan, 8, is discovering girls:
He’s totally in love with women. He’s got pictures of three girls above his bed, that are all like 16, 15 and 14, and he’s only 8. At night he’s like, ‘I’m on the phone and I need my privacy,’ ” she jokes. “He’s a total ladies’ man. But I don’t know if he’s going to be the most romantic Casanova in the world … or Hugh Hefner.”
