Jenny McCarthy Talks Autism on Oprah

You guys all knew Jenny McCarthy's son, Evan, is autistic, right? I can't remember when she first revealed it -- earlier this year on The View, I think -- but today she was on Oprah plugging her new book about it. The book is called Louder Than Words.

While it's a horrible disease, I think it's great that someone like Jenny is out there discussing autism. A lot of times these diseases are so foreign to me. Nobody my age is dealing with them -- their babies are healthy little things -- so I'm oblivious. But to have someone around my age dealing with it makes it more relatable. Not to mention that this is the gross out queen from Singled Out and she's tearing up about how her son flatlined during a seizure. I can't help but listen.

And for the superficial, Jim Carrey's girlfriend looks stunning these days. Today she wore this baby blue mod dress, her straight locks were in the Posh 'do (though she says she had it before Posh) and she just looks incredibly beautiful. Yet another reason I'm glad she and her son are the new faces of autism -- it makes you see a sunny side. She's getting through it... and she looks good.

I like her so much more than I ever used to.
