The ever-outspoken Jenny McCarthy went on Howard Stern and blasted her ex, Jim Carrey for "refusing to speak to" her autistic son, Evan.
Evan is not Carrey's son. His father is John Mallory Asher. Asher and McCarthy divorced in September, 2005. She began dating Carrey in December, 2005. Carrey and McCarthy were only together for five years. Does he have any real responsibility to see her child?
McCarthy and Carrey don't even appear to be on speaking terms! She reportedly went through "channels" to contact him asking him to see her son. That means she had her agent contact his agent to arrange a child visitation?! If she has no contact with her ex, why would she want her child to have a relationship with him? Unless she wants to rekindle the relationship. If that's the case, she's not as good a mom as she likes to say she is. Children are not pawns or lures.
Jenny McCarthy is so self-absorbed that she doesn't even consider for one second that perhaps it's too painful for Jim to visit her son because he was also very attached to the boy. She says to Howard, "But as a mother, you just hope when you have a relationship with someone, it has nothing to do with the child when you break up."
She acts as if Carrey has no feelings whatsoever; yet he's somehow obligated to her and her child. And at the same time, she thinks their break-up should have "nothing to do with the child."
No wonder he left her. He probably only stayed as long as he did because of his love for the boy. Jim Carrey is not the bad guy here.
