Jenny McCarthy Details Drug Use, Lesbian Flings in New Book ‘Bad Habits: Confessions of a Recovering Catholic’

By Celebrity News Wire on October 5, 2012

In her new book titled Bad Habits: Confessions of a Recovering Catholic, television host and former Playboy playmate Jenny McCarthy revealed she grew up wanting to be a nun — but the tell-all also detailed a gamut of unholy behavior during her career.

The former girlfriend of Jim Carrey recounted how she previously abused drugs, including Ecstasy and Vicodin.

Indeed, she recalled one drug-fueled trip to Hawaii with a group of Playmates that she admitted turned into a lesbian tryst.

“Holding up drugs in front of a group of Playmates was like holding up an arm to a cannibal tribe,” the 39-year-old wrote. “We jumped on the box fighting to get as many little white capsules as possible. Instead of saving some for later, we all pounded at least five at once.”

More after the jump.

McCarthy — who has a 12 year-old son, Evan — recalled what happened once the drugs took effect.

“It was incredibly intense,” she wrote. “So much so that we all began to express love for one another by making out with each other.”

It left one male onlooker stunned, she noted.

“I can only imagine the shock he was in seeing that he was the only man on the beach with fourteen really f***** up Playmates who just happened to also be making out with each other,” wrote McCarthy, who was named Playmate of the Year in 1993.

It wasn’t the first or the last time McCarthy experimented with drugs, however.

She confessed “turning into a stoner and mushroom expert” before she went to college. Later, McCarthy admitted, she also ended up “detoxing from Vicodin.”

It’s hard to imagine this face could be anything but innocent. Check out the gallery for childhood photos of McCarthy, which she included in the new book.
