Jenny McCarthy's dating habits are always good for quick gossip. Over the weekend, I'm sure the most asked question amongst the young, hip, and connected was "Is Jenny McCarthy really dating Chicago Bears player Brian Urlacher?" Although rumors were circulating a few weeks ago that she had been dating the professional footballer, it would seem that the two are, in fact, a couple. For the time being, anyway.
A close friend told the Chicago Sun Times that she "has really fallen for the guy. He’s such a man’s man, the most macho guy Jenny’s dated or been involved with for a long, long time." Previously, McCarthy dated funnyman Jim Carrey, though that relationship ended famously in 2010. Since then, the former Playboy Playmate has been connected to sports agent Paul Krepelka, though that pairing appears to have come to a conclusion, as well.
McCarthy is a fan of the strong, silent type? That's news to me. If this is the case, why her relationship with Carrey lasted for so long is truly anybody's guess.
The couple was seen at a number of locations over the weekend, including RPM Italian, Studio Paris and Board Room. However, despite these public appearances, McCarthy isn't ready to spill the beans just yet. However, she has told friends that she is extremely "giddy" about the prospects surrounding her new beau. When she's ready to officially share her joy with the entire world, chances are you're going to hear about it.
Do people who spend a lot of time on Twitter care about McCarthy's latest relationship? Of course they do! A selection of interesting responses to this throwaway story -- both good and bad -- have been included below.
