Are Jenny McCarthy and Brian Urlacher Temporary Genevans?

The social media set around town says the couple is staying somewhere in the friendly confines of sleepy, enchanting Geneva, IL—at least for a few months.

By now, you're probably familiar with the rumor that one of the most famous couples on the planet is renting a place here in lovely Geneva, IL.

Of course, since we value their privacy and would love for them to settle down here, we'll just keep it amongst ourselves, right?

Jenny McCarthy—"Mommy warrior and cellulite killer," according to her Twitter account bio, plus actress, model, game-show host, author and soon-to-be-again Playboy centerfold subject—announced to the world on May 27 that she's dating Chicago Bear Brian Urlacher.

According to numerous, unsubstantiated but very confident-sounding comments on Geneva Patch's Facebook page, Jenny and Brian are renting for three months here in Geneva. No one has said where, and if we knew, we wouldn't tell you. Probably.

But there are some pretty good hints that they're "Out & Around" town, as we used to say.

Here's a June 9 Twitter conversation on @JennyMcCarthy

(1) Heidi S ‏@flygirlHeidi@JennyMcCarthy are you sitting next to me at ?

(2) Heidi S ‏@flygirlHeidi@flygirlHeidi @jennymccarthy thank you for the autograph for my daughter. You are so sweet and so stunning!

(3) Jenny McCarthy ‏@JennyMcCarthy@flygirlHeidi anything for a local!

Jenny tells zeenews.com that she's pretty darned close to being in love. This also comes on the heels of news (to me, at least) that she's going to pose nude for the July/August cover of Playboy.

McCarthy is an outspoken autism activist and wrote a book on the topic in 2007: Louder than Words: A Mother's Journey in Healing Autism, after her son Evan was diagnosed with autism in 2005. 

According to Wikipedia, she was born in Evergreen Park to a middle-class Catholic family of Polish and Irish descent. 

Brian Urlacher is a fairly good linebacker for a Chicago sports team of some note. You might have seen his jersey, No. 54, on about 5,000 kids' backs the last time you were at a game.

I agree with Carla. I really don't need a stripper's half baked thoughts on autism, or care what serially poor father/semi pro athlete she is dating. If they're here, can't they please move to Barrington, which was built for people like this?

Wow, all of you sound so negative. Come on now... Isn't any publicity for Geneva good publicity. Honestly, I am stoked! I sure hope I run into either if them. I grew up with Jenny when she first started on MTV. She is hilarious, beautiful and obviously knows how to make positive things happen in her life. I say roll out the red carpet. Welcome to Geneva!
