Chicago Sun-Times advice columnist
and blogger Jenny McCarthy
hasn't had the best of weeks, the new Jenny McCarthy
tv show on VH1 saw her primary guest bail out on site of the set.
The Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation
a charity that does excellent work supporting cancer survivors in eastern Ontario—had hired her to headline a fundraising event, but because of her backward anti-vaccination beliefs, her invitation was retracted.
In other words, it was a rough week for the 1994 Playboy Playmate of the Year turned Splash magazine writer...
It's like Charles Barkley said (but likely borrowed from someone else), "no one tells pretty girls the truth." We might as well call this the Jenny McCarthy
Despite her lack of talent, she keeps getting work, and good work at that. Her current role with the Sun-Times is an offshoot of the Splash partnership between the Chicago Sun-Times and McCarthy. She's a columnist and blogger
. And yes, she's even an advice columnist. Because the first person I would ask for advice is someone who accidentally sends a nude photo of herself to her dentist.

This column started in April, so it's a less than a year old. However, 2012 gave me plenty of people who set themselves up to be criticized. It was a fun 8 months, despite the fact that I've been battling a monstrous illness the entire time I've had this blog
Still, I've done guest radio spots for The Score, CBS radio Cleveland and ESPN Honolulu- all while in a hospital bed hooked up to an IV pole. Things have gotten much better on that front, and continue to get better every day. So hopefully in 2013, I can spend less time in clinic and more time on my work.
And I can do more of these. Because the critical columns are fun, and often make new friends, especially among the rival media outlets of those who you just ripped. Or at least it gets you more Twitter followers and Facebook friends among the media in general. But of course, it makes enemies too. A lot of enemies.
So without further ado, here were the ten best...
This is certainly a new low for the Chicago Sun-Times. They’ve hired former Playboy Playmate of the Year Jenny McCarthy as a columnist and blogger. Talk about newspapers being desperate to increase circulation, the hiring of the babelicious but bimbotastic, unfunny, unwitty and unintelligent McCarthy is another nadir for print media in a major market....

Just a week after accidentally texting a nude photo of herself to her 80 year old dentist (It was intended for her boyfriend, Chicago Bears
linebacker Brian Urlacher
), Jenny McCarthy
is trending again on the internet. This time for more professional reasons.
Just shy of 40 years old, the Chicago product (McCarthy, not Urlacher) is gracing her sixth cover of Playboy magazine
