Jenny McCarthy Splits From Football Player Boyfriend


She may be the host of NBC’s “Love in the Wild” but her personal life may be following suit.

Jenny McCarthy has called it quits from Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher.

“Brian and I have decided to turn our romance into an amazing friendship,” she said in a statement to People Thursday. “I will continue to be the biggest cheerleader for him. Go, Bears!” The July/August Playboy cover girl was reportedly seeing the pro-football player since April of this year.

Though she has dated comedian Jim Carrey and has a son from a previous relationship with actor John Mallory Asher, the 39-year-old blonde bombshell says she doesn’t depend on a man for her happiness.

“It took awhile,” she told Parade magazine back in April. “I felt like, ‘Oh, I’m so alone I have to be with somebody’ … But I got to a place where I was like … I’m happy with myself. I don’t need to have a lover to have love in my life.”
