Jenny & Jim - What Do You Think?


Usually you can tell by publicist messages and statements who broke up with whom. In this Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey breakup though it is very tough to tell. One the one hand you have Jim who went for short and sweet on Twitter and made it seem like perhaps he was the heartbroken one.

"I'm grateful 4 the many blessings we've shared and I wish her the very best! S'okay!" The last part makes me think that he could have been the one dumped. But, back in February which was just six weeks ago, Jenny went all out for Valentine's Day. She hired a skywriter. You don't usually make that kind of effort for someone you are planning on dumping in a few weeks. At the same time though, her message sounds a little more business like. Of course she was paying someone to write it so it should be more professional.

I'm so grateful for the years Jim and I shared together. I will continue to be in his daughter's life and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart."

Maybe they just stayed together until Jane had her baby. Jane had her baby in February and Jenny might have wanted to stick around her for that. Maybe they just grew apart. Hmmm. Any ideas?

Sounds like someone didn't want to get officially married. Nothing is forever.

Susan said...

Dang, Enty. I was hoping you'd have the inside deets on this one.

I don't know why they broke up, but I've been perusing the book JM wrote about pregnancy (one of my sister's gave it to me, honest) and she seems like a really big self-absorbed twit. But, who knows. I thought those crazy kids would last...

RocketQueen said...

Yeah, puzzling. In interviews, they both talked about how they were pleased that neither wanted to get married and neither wanted to have more children, so I don't think that's it.
My guess is that something "happened" considering how recently Valentine's day was, and how Jenny went all out.

Terri said...

Sometimes staying together is easier than breaking up. Especially if you like each other's company.

Psychos are Nuts said...

How much respect do you have for the relationship you had, if you announce the break up on twitter? its like getting married in a landfill. If that is how they announce the end, the relationship was as deep as a puddle in the desert.

Maybe he got the 7 year itch early?

Babs said...

I've gotta believe they were BOTH really hard to live with.

And I've never liked her since her big autism disinformation campaign. Hollywood-ers should leave science to the scientists.

Doc Girl said...

Wasn't there a blind item recently about a seemingly happy, high profile couple on the brink of breaking up? And that the break up would be surprising?

Just Another Blonde said...

Yeah Babs I agree with you completely. They both seem like insufferable twats, which is why I thought they were perfect together!

Patty said...

He always seemed to me someone who would be difficult to get along with.

Cheryl said...

I think both statements mentioned Jane. Maybe they were hounding her about vaccines for the baby.
That may sound like a crazy reason to breakup but the anti-vaccine crowd can really destroy family relations. My sister in law considers vaccines and circumcision (among other things) to be abuse.

I don't like either one of these two so I'm not all that shocked.

KellyLynn said...

I don't think it's that shocking to see someone make a big display of love shortly before a breakup, even if she's the one doing the breakup.

Have you ever seen someone exclaiming a bit too loudly how they feel about someone? It's like when someone buys a way-too-expensive diamond ring for someone they say they're not planning to marry, or when they start inserting mentions of how much they love their significant other into random moments of their conversation, like a used car dealer trying to sell you on that rust-bucket that's been sitting out by the road just a bit too long.

Those grand, public gestures of love always seem shallow to me, like the person is trying to convince herself that she's still in love, more than she's trying to woo the recipient. Even if Jenny McCarthy isn't a huge famewhore, the VDay stunt could have been her attempt at rebooting her devotion. But, just like so many public displays of affection, once the afterglow wore off, whatever issues that could have been there were still there.

The good news is that they were very classy in their public goodbyes. I know Twitter isn't the most professional way to release a statement, but it's more direct and immediate than giving an interview, and less canned than a press release.

In any case, I do hope these two find happiness.

shazzzba said...

AH...TOO BAD, LIKED THEM TOGETHER.

not on my dollar said...

I heard he set up a $50mil trust for her and her son back in January to assure that they would always be financially secure.

I don't know if that's true but if it is it sounds strange. Supposedly he's worth maybe $200mil so it would be strange that he'd give her one fourth of his assets.

I do know that he gets pretty excited and falls in love quickly with his women. Remember Lauren Holly and I think he also wanted to marry Renee Zellwiger (sp.?) after about one or two months of courtship. So perhaps that $50mil was an equivalent to a lifetime of marriage in his eyesight.

Borg Queen said...

You beat me to it KellyAnn. I was going to say the exact same thing. He probably wanted to get married since he is a bit older than her and wanted to settle down. I always thought she was seeing Jim fo rhis money and publicity, maybe fell in love with him when she saw how he treated her son but now found some young d*ck to ride on.

Kate said...

Agree 110% with Psychos are Nuts...if you are truly upset about something personal (like a breakup) do you really need to Twitter it? Makes the whole relationship cheap.

Liza said...

That's true, but they're celebrities. Everybody expects to hear about their relationship. Better to nip it in the bud early with a quick Twitter message than to constantly have reporters speculating on whether they're together or not and hounding them for answers.

I liked them together - I thought they were going to last.

Jasmine said...

Am I the only sad one about this?? It feels like when Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel broke up. I just feel like there are so many dry stiff couples in hollywood that when a really funny cool seeming (remember that time he wore HER swimsuit on the beach!) couple breaks up it sucks. I dunno what happened but it seems like maybe it just fizzled out. Neither sent any jabs at the other and I found Carrey's 's'okay' to be lacking in any fervency.

Jasmine said...

which would indicate a lack of passion in the relationship

jax said...

Chelsea Handler was on Joy Behar and asked her is she would ever date Jim Carrey (Jenny was in the green room-b4 they split a few days ago)and Chelsea snorted and said, "No."

didn't sound like she had much love for him.

libby said...

Around the same time as the sky-writing, Jenny also referred to herself as the 'grandma' of Jim's granddaughter.
I don't think those are the actions of a person about to break up.
Plus, Jim doesn't have a history of being the dumpee.

Lady J said...

Sounds like they grew apart. It happens. They could always get back together down the line.

pomme said...

are they the major guess about the BI on A list actor who doesn't more sex with his C list girlfriend since several years?

RJ said...

I always thought they were perfect for one another as they are both extremely loud and hyper and annoying. Maybe it was a case of being too much alike. I do feel for her son, who was said to be very attached to Jim. Autistic people don't handle big changes very well. I hope he's ok.

ktheletter said...

I'm kinda wondering if Jenny wanted another kid somehow, and maybe Jim wasn't in to it. She posted a tweet on April 4th that said, "Happy Easter. If anyone is short any eggs I think I have a couple left in my ovaries. I don't plan on using them so lemme know."

This could totally be a joke. But a lot of jokes contain partial truths. Probably reading too much into it.

Jamie's Girl said...

Honestly, Jim keeps his mouth shut, so I'd say it's Jenny. BEcause if it were Jim who'd cheated, this whore Jenny McCarthy would be all over the world with it, like she was her marriage.

I also know there was a blind about someone who was cheating on a commedien and I know it was her now.

RocketQueen said...

Whoa whoa. ANYWAY.

I just read that it's being attributed to Jim's long-standing battle with depression. Sorry, I've lost the link!

B626 said...

They're both high maintenance
and the grandkid toppled the house of cards

Sweetiebird said...

Maybe he got sick of listening to her pseudoscience like the rest of us. Can't stand her. Don't want to hear anything more about her. She is a talentless nobody who should of and would have disappeared from public view years ago.

abby said...

still, I think its sad they broke up. I say he broke up w/her. but, could be entirely wrong. Enty, I'm surprised you don't know more but maybe you do and you're not letting on. the truth has to come out sooner or later.

Wil said...

I am sad. I don't know if they are both assholes or not .. I don't know them personally .. so who knows. But .. I think they were a cute couple and they genuinely seems to care deeply about one another as far as interviews go and such.

I figure they will get back together .. or Jim will come out as gay. I mean .. wasn't there a BI about a gay comedian a while back there?? Perhaps that would lend itself to the break up??

Emobacca said...

Jim lasted longer than I thought he would. I mean how long would your average male last listening to the dumb blonde from MTV ramble on about how she cured her kid from autism?

Charlie said...

Looks like Jimbo put her head in one of those vise grips and tightened it a bit too much.

ms snarky said...

I think he broke up with her, and left her with a large dollar parting gift so that she will talk nice about him.
