McCarthy closing autism school amid split with Carrey

April 9th, 2010

From Fox News’ Entertainment blog, CNN:

In the wake of news that she is splitting up with actor Jim Carrey, actress and autism activist Jenny McCarthy is closing her school, Teach2Talk Academy, reports Fox News.

Earlier this week, Carrey announced his split with McCarthy via a Twitter post signed with an emoticon.

“Jenny and I have just ended our 5yr relationship. I’m grateful 4 the many blessings we’ve shared and I wish her the very best! S’okay! ?;^>”

The celebrity duo had provided glamor to the autism cause as they promoted controversial anti-vaccine messages, offered hope of autism cures, and marketed McCarthy’s books on the subject. McCarthy, a one-time Playboy playmate, is the mother of a son who has been diagnosed with autism.
