Jenny McCarthy, vaccination-denier and Queen of Idiot Nation, is pissed you think her son doesn't have autism. In other idiot news, Charlie Sheen might have married a porn star, and Will Smith misses Uncle Phil. All this and more in your Defamer Monday breakdowns.
- Jenny McCarthy cannot believe stories have been circulating online questioning her son Evan's autism diagnosis. She took to Twitter on Saturday to strike down the rumors:
Stories circulating online, claiming that I said my son Evan may not have autism after all, are blatantly inaccurate and completely ridiculous. Evan was diagnosed with autism by the Autism Evaluation Clinic at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital and was confirmed by the State of California (through their Regional Center). The implication that I have changed my position, that my child was not initially diagnosed with autism (and instead may suffer from Landau-Kleffner Syndrome), is both irresponsible and inaccurate. These stories cite a "new" Time Magazine interview with me, which was actually published in 2010, that never contained any such statements by me. Continued misrepresentations, such as these, only serve to open wounds of the many families who are courageously dealing with this disorder. Please know that I am taking every legal measure necessary to set this straight.
Speaking of continued misrepresentations, McCarthy will not be stopping her harmful anti-vaccination nonsense. [E!]
- Charlie Sheen joked on Twitter about being married to his porn star ladyfriend Brett Rossi, but like most things Sheen, it was neither funny nor true. Sheen's rep told Us Weekly, "He's kidding around." It's always good when your reps have to clarify "jokes." [US Weekly]
- A week after the death of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air costar James Avery, Will Smith took to his Facebook page for a tribute:
Avery died Dec. 31 in Glendale. [Hollywood Reporter]
