Author, actress and activist Jenny McCarthy will have her party hat on come December 31 – she’s set to ring in 2011 alongside Ryan Seacrest on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. In a new interview with Parade, the funny mom dishes on her relationship with her ex and her holiday plans with her 8-year-old son Evan.
On her ex Jim Carrey‘s continuing friendship with Evan: “Absolutely. We still love Jimmy, which is what we call him, and we wish him the best as he wishes us for future work and future love. We still remain friendly as ever.”
On being allergic to the holidays: “[Evan and I] are both allergic to Christmas trees. We have to move out of the house for the first three days a Christmas tree is in the house. We’re so allergic to them!”
On Evan’s Christmas gifts: “I’m just gonna get him everything he asked Santa for, which is a Macaw parrot and Legos. And I think he asked for a lizard. It’s typical boy stuff.”
