Jenny McCarthy Talks Bullying

| Filed under: InspirationJenny McCarthyEllen DeGeneresSad Sad

Check out the video (above) to see Jenny McCarthy talk to Ellen about her experiences being bullied as a child.

Here are some excerpts from Jenny's interview:

"I would have girls wait for me outside of school with pipes, to beat me up… They were picking on me because their boyfriends would look at me on the way home."

So Immature. More from Jenny:

"After hearing all the bully stuff, I kinda went back and evaluated what I was thinking, looking out the window… 'Why didn't I tell my mom? Why didn't I tell my teacher?' It was because I didn't want my mom or anyone to think I was weak.

More:

"Then it got worse. By the time I got to high school, the girls… were throwing pies at my face, pulling out my hair, spitting on me and then the worst part was when they lit my hair on fire on the bus.

Awful! Here's More:

"I went to an all-girls Catholic school, need I say more. But we also went to school next to a public school, so we got on the bus, the city bus, and the public school (kids) got on the bus before us, so they'd just attack and be so vicious."

We're sorry you had to go through all of that, Jenny, but thank you for sharing with the world!

Maybe if kids out there hear that someone as successful and beautiful as you was bullied as a child too, they'll see that there is hope, and that it gets better.

    Oh hear we go again…now she knows everything about "bullying" just like she knew more than doctors about autisim!! get a real job and quit trying to make a living off of other's!!! you are annoying as hell!!!!



  2. 2

    what is she trying to say about public school kids? private school kids just need to step their game up. daddy isn't always gonna be there to protect them…might as well get used to it. welcome to the real world.



  3. 3

    Wow. She's a strong woman to have gone through all that and still have the courage to rise above that pain and live life positively.
    Bullying is tough for the one getting bullied physically, emotionally and psychologically, but it does get better and NO ONE has the right to make you worthless. The person who is doing the bullying is the worthless one!

    I have a very hard time understanding why anyone cares what she "says." People consider her a sex object, and they want to see her naked, and imagine what she looks like when she's getting fucked. She's also a moron. If you're going to open your mouth, sweetie, make sure there's a big erect cock going in there.

    I had similar experiences to Jenny's when i was in high school, and i have to agree, that i didnt want to tell my parents because i was embarrassed and didnt want to let them know i was weak.
    however, i did tell teachers/the principal when it got physically violent - beyond just verbal abuse spitting etc. - and all that accomplished was a measly two day suspension for the perpetrator and it didnt control their behaviour out in the community on my private time…or their behaviour once they returned to school

    teachers and adults cannot always be around, watching and protecting, i think the largest fear for those being bullied - and a very reasonable fear - is the fear that if they get the bully in trouble, they will be harassed and hurt worse because they told and 'ratted' on them
    it just made my bully hate me even more, and their clique tortured me to the point where i had to switch schools and stay away from public places like the mall, unless i had a parent with me.
    Looking back, i am SO happy I made that decision, it was completely worth giving up a little personal freedom and a few friends, in order to go to a better school with people who cared about education and not bullying and violence.

    I was the only girl in my 5th grade class and I was bullied mercilessly in the 5th and 6th grades. They would put glue on my chair, call me names (I was tall for my age), chase me home, push me around on the playground. I was terrified. I went to high school with some of them and I finally got the courage to ask them why they were so mean to me. "Because we liked you." What a lame response. I hope those foolish boys ended up in jail - scared of the other boys.

    i do not believe for one second that people were beating her with pipes or throwing pies at her. That's the stupidest story I've heard. Well, the stupidest if you don't count her bullshit story about curing her son of autism.



  8. 8

    Am I the only one who thinks she's cashing in on the "bully" publicity? I mean come on, she was picked on for being beautiful? WaaaWaaaWaaa.

    According to the latest statitistics..

    One in five teens are bulled in the US.

    However.. .. nine in ten gay teens are bullied in the US.

    So gays actually do have a valid reason to be more concerned because although bullying can happen to anyone, statistically gays take it the worse.

    But a lot of schools are adopting policies that work, which is cool

    She did a heck of a lot of harm when she went on her "don't vaccinate" campaign. The whole "vaccinations are harmful" crap was the erroneous findings of one person after an illegitimate study and it took off like wildfire and everyone started believing it as fact, thanks large in part to people like McCarthy. Thankfully the bad information has been debunked in legitimate study after study after study. This is the damage obnoxious celebs like her do when they start opening up their piehole on crap they really don't know anything about nor are experts on.

    I'd like to bully her lying fake ass right into the fucking ground. What does she think she's doing with telling parents what to do with their autistic kids, and spreading myths about how they became autistic and how it can be reversed??? What a fucking hypocrite.



  12. 12

    Somehow I suspect that if it was ugly people committing suicide, Jenny McCarthy would come up with some experience she's had with that too…this is an evil, selfish woman selling snake oil to the world. She needs to go away.



  13. 13

    Good thing I've been vaccinated against bullsh*t…

    Re: TheMrsBradPitt – I know, that's what I said. Sounds like a load a bullshit to me.

    HOLD THE PHONE, in her early interviews at the start of her career, she told EVERYONE how she was one of the "mean girls" (her words) in middle and high school.
    Is someone jumping on the current band wagon to stay relevant? Revenge to a bully puts this in another category (like KARMA)



  16. 16

    Perez, why don't you tell us about your bullying stories? I'm sure you had this SHIZ beaten out of you!



  17. 17

    I'm sorry but if someone set my hair on fire… I wouldn't have to tell me mom, I'm pretty sure she could have figured it out when I got home with singed hair… Jenny, you didn't tell your mom/parents you were being bullied? Sweetheart, come on if you were in a bus and had your hair set on fire, I'm pretty sure kids would be screaming and the bus driver would have reported it. Girls were throwing pies in your face? Seriously?

    Unfortunately I do not believe her story, at all. When I watched Ellen yesterday, while she told her "bullying" story she didn't have one ounce of emotion. And every now and again she would have this smirk/smile on her face. When I think about when I was in Jr. High and I got bullied for being tall, I don't get a smirk on my face, in fact I get pretty damn emotional and upset.

    I went to an all-girls Catholic high school too and I can guarantee that if any of that behavior was going on the perps would have been expelled immediately, no questions asked. We were expected to live up to a certain code of behavior and anything less than that was not tolerated. These expectations used to be the same at public schools before the ACLU got involved. Now parents get mad if little Johnny gets a stern talking to from a teacher and the ACLU steps in and encourages the parents to sue for damaging their child's self-esteem. In the meantime bullies aren't dealt with on either the parents' side or the school's so they're free to do whatever they want. They're not learning the "golden rule" at home so they have no conscience over the pain they're causing. Our society is totally out of control and it has to stop. Parents need to teach their children to be kind and tolerant, the schools need to be able to enforce that without fear of repercussion, and others need to feel it's safe to step in and stop whatever bullying they see.

    SHE IS A LIAR.

    first of all, i live in the same area she grew up in, my sister & cousin attended the high school she went to, and my aunt was in her graduating class. this school is not next to a public school! i live down the street! its an all girls catholic school, largest in the country actually, its right next door to an all boys catholic high school, across the street from a catholic grammar school, a catholic college,and a public ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. i know girls who went to her high school, i have friends who are good, honest people, and that school does not have that kind of reputation, nor does it deserve it!



  20. 20

    Bullshit. She's said she was a cheerleader in high school, not some beautiful loner whom all the guys lusted after and was hated for. If anything, she wasn't liked for fucking around with other girls' boyfriends. No one gets bullied for being too pretty, she's a bold-faced liar.



  21. 21

    SHE IS SO FULL OF SHIT! I asked her for a picture once at an event and she was so unbelievably rude and walked away from me…..many people have told me how rude she is. I thought it would be a fun campy picture to have of myself with her and if anything I was doing her a favor…..I was shocked how rude she was….I thought….who the fuck are you? Bullyed? MY ASS!

    O-M-G. For real? I can't state that this is fact or anything, but this is what I hear: The southside of Chicago is a small community (believe it or not) and there is a six degrees of seperation thing going on around there. The word on the street is… Ms. J. McC was a jock and was unrecognizable when she hit it big. Former classmates where referring to their yearbooks to look her up and imagine their surprise – plastic surgery can do wonders. That could just be the talk of the green-eyed monster though. Don’t know – wasn’t there to confirm this.

    Jenny IS A BULLY. She is a know nothing IDIOT with all her opinions.



  24. 24

    I'm not sure what everybody speaking out about this is going to do. Do they really think the kids who bully will listen to them. The people who need to step it up are the schools and parents. Parents need to teach it's never okay to bully. And when a mom calls them to tell them their kid is doing it, they need to do something other than defend their kid. My friend is going through this right now with her boy being bullied. The parents of the bully kids couldn't care any less what their little angels are doing when they're away from home.

    I can confirm everyone's suspicions…I went to the All girls catholic school she's referring to as well. And yes, the south side of Chicago where she's from is very small and very Irish Catholic. We all know everyone and are somewhat related to almost everyone because our families are so huge. There is no way what she is saying happened. The nuns that run our high school are and always have been very strict. We would get detentions for wearing the wrong socks, and there was always a security guard at the door at the end of the day when I went there (mostly to keep boys out). And the public school…half a mile away. LIES.

    This woman is so full of shit, her eyes are turning brown! I am so sick of this idiot and her bullshit regarding autism. GO AWAY!
