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.
"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.
