Jenny McCarthy Clarifies Comment On Charlie Sheen — Digs In Deep To Shade Industry Double Standards!

Jenny McCarthy

ICYMI: Two & A Half Men alum Jenny McCarthy called out her former co-star Charlie Sheen for not being more transparent with his HIV-Positive diagnosis. Sheen’s manager Mark Burg responded to her claim by saying that his client was infected “long after he worked with Jenny.”

The two worked together periodically from 2007-2011 while Miz McCarthy played Sheen’s love interest, Courtney. Sheen says he was diagnosed in 2011. Hmm.

Donnie Wahlberg‘s wife thinks there’s more to it than that. The mother-of-one believes there is a double standard in Hollywood when it comes to disclosing health conditions.

She fired back on Twitter on Thursday saying:

“The point I raised about Charlie Sheen on my Sirius radio show, had nothing to do with whether or not I think he put me at risk. I simply took issue with a double standard in the industry. Every actress (and actor for that matter) must disclose hundreds of personal health matters before ever being allowed to set foot on a film set. Yet an actor who interacts physically with dozens of actresses in intimate scenes, is not required to disclose that he has HIV? I am very aware that HIV is not spread through kissing, but I also believe that if an actress has to disclose all of her business before kissing a male costar, that actor should be required to disclose something [as] major as an HIV infection too. His disclosures in his personal life are none of my business, and are for him to reconcile with the people he interacted with privately. I am not one of them.”

This could be the least of Martin Sheen‘s son’s concerns as he could potentially face several major lawsuits from previous sexual partners who claim they did NOT know about the virus.
