Say What?! Jenny McCarthy: Jesus Was My Bieber
You may have thought bottle blonde babe Jenny McCarthy was always a sexpot, but it turns out nothing could be further from the truth. In her new book, Bad Habits: Confessions of a Recovering Catholic, the former Playboy playmate writes about her religious upbringing, her desire to be a nun and how her girlhood celeb crush was a pretty unusual one -- Jesus. Yeah, as in -- Jesus, Our Lord and Savior.
On Good Morning America, Jenny invited JuJu Chang into her former home and showed the host her childhood bedroom, saying, "I had a Jesus poster, the pope was over there, I had some 'I love Jesus' T-shirts and bags hanging up."
Hmm, a little creepy? Maybe. But it does make me feel a little less lame about wearing a rainbow WWJD bracelet to school after my parents sent me to bible camp for the summer. Yes, yes it does.
Jenny also revealed to JuJu that her devout mother wouldn’t even let her put up photos – unless they were of Jesus. "My mom wouldn’t let us have Fonzie posters on the wall growing up so I was stuck with Jesus, so I couldn’t help but have a crush on him." Even admitting that the first time she kissed a boy in her room, she covered up her Jesus poster with a picture of Cyndi Lauper.
I guess ya can't blame Jenny for her teenage cover up. Girls do just wanna have fun.
