Jenny McCarthy

Thumbs up= Thumbs down= Thumbs sideways=

Jenny McCarthy hailed from a middle class Irish Catholic family in Chicago, the second of four daughters. She attended Southern Illinois University to study nursing. In response to the rising education expenses, she sent her photo to Playboy in an attempt to earn some money and ended up posing for its October 1993 issue and went on to be the 1994 Playmate of the Year. This caused an uproar in her Catholic neighborhood, resulting in her house being pelted with eggs, her sisters being taunted at school and McCarthy being lectured about damnation by her own friends and family.

As McCarthy tried to branch out into acting, it was her co-hosting stint on MTV's "Singled Out" that elevated her popularity and opened doors for her. McCarthy has written books about parenting, and has become an activist promoting research into environmental causes and alternative medical treatments for autism. She has also made controversial and unsupported medical claims that vaccines cause autism and that chelation therapy helped cure her son of autism.
"The View" is ABC's popular morning talk and entertainment program, featuring a team of dynamic women of different ages, experiences and backgrounds discussing the most exciting events of the day. The program has received critical acclaim since premiering August 11, 1997. It's broadcast live weekdays from New York City. The original panel consisted of Barbara Walters, Joy Behar, Star Jones, Debbie Matenopoulos and Meredith Vieira; the current panel consists of Walters, Whoopi Goldberg (who additionally serves as the moderator), Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd. On July 15, 2013, Walters announced that Jenny McCarthy would become a permanent co-host, replacing Elizabeth Hasselbeck. The appointment created a media backlash, largely due to McCarthy's anti-vaccination views.
