Tuesday, Jenny McCarthy will sit down with Oprah Winfrey to discuss what caused her split with actor Jim Carrey. In April, after five years together, the couple announced their split via Twitter . Here are some bits from the interview:
Oprah: “Tell me, when did you know it was over?”
McCarthy: “You know, the simple word I can give – and there’s a few, so let me say a few. The first thing is, when it’s not fun anymore, you need to start investigating and do an inquiry into the relationship.”
McCarthy went on to insist “my identification wasn’t caught up [in] being a celebrity’s … girlfriend.” When Oprah pressed further, asking if she was sure, McCarthy responded:
“Absolutely. I did check on that, by the way. I checked into myself. How does my ego feel? … My ego’s fine. I’m a warrior mom. I always got back on my feet, and I know especially this year who I am.”
It was reported in August that Jenny McCarthy is dating fitness model Jason Toohey.
