Whatever Happened to Jenny McCarthy?

These pictures of Jenny McCarthy popped up online in the last week or two and it got me to wondering. Where the hell did she go. She is obviously still very hot, but for some reason she never took off after her turn in BASEketball and both Scream 3 and Scary Movie 3. I went to her imdb page and found that she has pretty much been working nonstop since then, but ask yourself this: when's the last time you thought about her?

One of the movies she is working on for later this year is called Wieners and is described with this sentence: "A road trip comedy about three friends who travel across the country in a Wiener Wagon to beat up a popular daytime talk show therapist." Wow! That sounds like a barn burner! So for some reason she is just not in our everyday 'pop culture' minds. She is still young (34) and a knockout, so what is holding her back from being stalked by photographers at every turn? Maybe she doesn't want to be and all these other Hollywood stars are full of it when they say they get unwanted attention.

I did read that her son was diagnosed with Autism, and that will undoubtedly take much of her time. But, somehow she had the time to write and star in a movie that won the Razzie for Worst Picture, and also netted her awards for worst Screne play and Worst Actress: Dirty Love. Maybe Jenny would be a good prospect for the part of Jenna Jamison that I talked about a few weeks back?
