“I’m so grateful for the years Jim and I had together,” McCarthy posted to her Twitter page. “I will stay committed to [his daughter] Jane and will always keep Jim as a leading man in my heart.”

Jim Carrey also took to Twitter to share about the news of the couple’s split. “I’m grateful 4 the many blessings we’ve shared and I wish her the very best! S’okay!”

Of all the Hollywood break-ups over the past year, we’re kind of most surprised by this one. Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy have always been an odd match, but seemed to just click in a weird, but cool way. Back in January at the Super Bowl, they were all grins and giggles. In February, McCarthy told UsMagazine.com she was “really excited” to become a pseudo-grandmother when Carrey’s daughter gave birth to a baby boy.

Well, it’s sad to see what seemed like a fabulous couple taking their final bow, but least they have the class and decency to act like adults about the split and keep it nice and civil!

Video: Michael Savage Tries To Cover His Ass Over Autism

Snarkista told you about radio personality Michael Savage’s ridiculous, idiotic and incendiary comments about kids with autism, and that autistic kids were the result of “lax parenting”. The shizz has hit the fan.

Snarkista is among the MANY who are outraged! Savage has a HUGE audience, and surely many of them share Snarkista’s viewpoint. If you’re so inclined, click here to sign the petition to Fire Michael Savage.

Michael Savage Is An Effin’ Idiot

Snarkista is gonna take off her snarkhat for just a moment, and get out her can of whoop-ass. And she’s gonna open that sucker UP on Michael Savage. For the past 9 years, my daughter and I have worked as volunteers with the disabled. We have watched with alarm and shock at the DRASTIC rise in the number of autistic children we see every year.

On July 16th, controversial radio host Michael Savage characterized nearly every child with autism as “a brat who hasn’t been told to cut the act out”. Savage also called autism “a fraud and a racket” during his syndicated show, and went on to label children with the disorder as “idiots” and “morons.”

Savage said in a telephone interview today that he stood by his remarks and had no intention of apologizing to those advocates and parents who have called for his firing over the matter.

My main point remains true. It is an overdiagnosed medical condition. In my readings, there is no definitive medical diagnosis for autism.

On his show, which is broadcast every weekday, Mr. Savage suggested that “99 percent of the cases” of autism were a result of lax parenting. He told his audience: “They don’t have a father around to tell them, ‘Don’t act like a moron. You’ll get nowhere in life.” Among the other admonitions he felt children with autism should be hearing, he said, were: “ ‘Straighten up. Act like a man. Don’t sit there crying and screaming, idiot.’ ” Yeah. Tell that to Jenny McCarthy.

But he said he was proud to have prodded discussion on the subject, and planned to give over his entire show on Monday — broadcast live from Northern California from 3 to 6 p.m., Pacific time — to parents and other callers who wished to disagree with him and to educate him.

Many people aren’t waiting until today’s edition of Mr. Savage’s show, “The Savage Nation,” to register their outrage. In New York City, Autism United, a coalition of organizations that advocate on behalf of children with autism and provide services to them, staged a protest Monday outside the studios of WOR (710 AM), which carries Mr. Savage’s program weeknights from 6 to 9 p.m., Eastern time.

Britney Ventures Out

Britney Spears popped in Saturday night at Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey’s fundraiser for Generation Rescue, an organization dedicated to researching autism. Jenny has been an outspoken advocate for autism research because of her autistic son. She’s become quite knowledgeable on the affliction that now affects 1 in 100 children.

Britney looked great and seemed really happy,” says a partygoer at the shindig at Jim and Jenny’s home in Brentwood. She kept close to her assistant Brett and didn’t speak to other guests, “She smiled and clapped during the video about autism. She was very into the information and watched a little bit of the dancers from Dancing with the Stars, sneaking out during one of the performances.”

Members of Britney’s family believe that her father Jamie has kept her alive. An insider tells The Sun:

He has been her savior. It was a horrible period and she was on the brink of disaster but she looks wonderful now. You can see the happiness in her eyes.

Jamie has put an end to Britney’s all-night benders on Red Bull and amphetamine-based prescription drug Adderall, the erratic drives around LA and the late-night shopping sprees. After her settlement with Kevin Federline regarding custody of their children, Britney seems determined to come back- both personally and professionally.

Britney’s dad has also kept some of her most troublesome pals away as well. Her former “manager” Sam Lufti has been served with a restraining order and Britney is only allowed supervised visits with on-off boyfriend, British photographer Adnan Ghalib. He is not allowed to stay the night with her.

She’s reportedly channeling her anger at her mother AND Justin Timberlake into her upcoming album, having penned several songs directed expressly at them. Her mom gets slapped for being a money-hungry user- Britney says she treated her like an ATM. And Justin? Britney says he wasn’t her first, saying she was “already bad” before they finally slept together.

Hopefully venting her anger will help Britney and not stir up more venom for her to hold in. It’s good to see her looking better, but Papa Jamie still has a way to go before turning loose of the reins again.
