Jenny McCarthy--actress, comedian, activist, and New York
Times bestselling author--candidly recounts her humorous
Catholic upbringing, from her childhood dream of becoming a nun to
her Playmate of the Year centerfold, and all of the Hail Mary''s in
In keeping with the theme of her comedic New York Times
bestsellers, from Belly Laughs to Love, Lust &
Faking It, McCarthy brings her trademark honesty, humility,
and humor to bear as she chronicles her often embarrassing,
occasionally outlandish, and always entertaining life as a
born-and-raised Catholic girl.
Jenny attended one of the most prestigious all-girl Catholic
schools in Chicago. While most young girls in Jenny''s neighborhood
were playing with Cabbage Patch dolls for fun, Jenny was playing
with Jesus, Mary, and Joseph dolls. She had every intention of
growing up and becoming a nun, but a few hilarious speed bumps and
blinking red lights along the way changed her mind. Jenny never did
accept Sister Mary''s reasoning that she could avoid purgatory if
she just bought a string necklace for $10. The fact that two of her
aunts are simultaneously nuns and cops-yes, they carry guns and
shoot people while wearing a habit-never made complete sense to
her. And neither does her mother''s insistence that Jenny bury
certain religious statues in the front lawns of her houses before
she sells them. But then again, Jenny does have four of them buried
across Southern California.
This book tells the story of what went wrong during Jenny''s
Catholic upbringing, or, as Jenny puts it now, what went right.
Chapters include: "I Knew I Should Have Worn Underwear to Church",
"Jesus'' Baby Mama", "Can Someone Kill Our Dog, Please?", and "Oh
No, My Mom is Going to Hell."
BAD HABITS is a brutally honest, hilarious memoir that will delight
the legions of Jenny McCarthy fans.
