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 will pose nude FREE for Playboy! Guy's might not like it and I don't care.
Pat June 11, 2012 at 04:43 PM
Nothing like a nice wholesome additon to our community. Parents, please don't esteem these people highly in front of your children. It really is not okay to take all your clothes off in front of strangers, no matter how much somebody pays (or double dog dares) you. Most people, with parenal guidance ("Sally, get in here before somebody sees you!") have curtailed this behavior by the age of 3.
Carla June 11, 2012 at 05:22 PM
Brian is NOT moving to Geneva. It's just her. You ppl are idiots! Have you seem his house?! He wouldn't leave it for her or anyone else. When was the last time you saw Brian in Geneva?! I'll wait. That's right. You haven't. He doesn't really want her.

Pat, Your ignorance is much more harmful than Ms. McCarthy posing nude. While I don't particular approve of Ms. McCarthy's stance on autistic causes, she has tirelessly promoted autism awareness and has had to raise an autistic child. I think anybody with such passion for humanity is most likely a much better addition to this community than you and your 19th century take on nudity. I would warn my children to avoid ignorant people like you who make snap judgement on people for one aspect of their life.

Sorry, Carla. I deleted a comment because it contained a sentence with a mildly disguised inappropriate word. The rest of the comment is OK, and I invite you to re-post if you wish.
Carla June 11, 2012 at 07:05 PM
Check McCarthy's vulgar language in her Howard Stern interview. Brian cannot have this woman around his kids!! This "relationship" is not going anywhere and he is NOT moving in with her in Geneva.
T.Ray June 11, 2012 at 08:45 PM
I can't beleive any of you care.
Justin Eggar June 11, 2012 at 09:54 PM
This is a small town newspapers dream come true. If they do decide to spend a little time in Geneva I would recommend we just let them be Genevans. There are all sorts of things that should be on Patch. However, this isn't one of them. We should spend time on relevant stores and less time acting like the Inquirer.

It could be that they are scouting Gallery at Chianti's at Swedish Days. Rumor has it that they love the fun-loving band from the Fox Valley. I doubt that they are shamelessly self-promoting their temporary stay here...probably tired of the north shore phoniness and just wanted to hear Gallery at Chiantis this year at Swedish days

He's not showing up in Geneva...hardly shows up at Soldier Field...hee heee heee! Go Pack!
Justin Eggar June 12, 2012 at 03:20 PM
Ouch! How'd we get all of these local Packers fans? :)
thefunkychicken June 12, 2012 at 03:51 PM
she can move next door to me.
Elaine Lane June 12, 2012 at 08:33 PM
Oh, Carla, I love it when you get so angry over.........uhhh........... yeah, what is it again you're so angry about?? You're spouting off all these facts about how he doesn't really want her, he cannot have her around his kids, he's NOT moving in with her in Geneva, etc., like you actually know them! You're hilarious. Get a life, lol. You sound like a very jealous ex-girlfriend.
Justin Eggar June 12, 2012 at 09:04 PM
Does anybody else find it a touch funny that somebody listening to Howard Stern would be offended by vulgar language? I'd burst into "isn't it ironic" but even I don't like to hear me sing :)
Barb June 13, 2012 at 12:16 AM
Who cares if she lives here. Better than a criminal...child molester....rapist...drug dealer. She is just another human making it through life. She has a heart it beats and breaks. Those who have so much time to judge, try using your time to actually be kind and help someone.
AJ Cuppy June 14, 2012 at 03:39 PM
Carla....you must be a very jealous angry person. Calm down! Brian & Jenny both were looking at houses here in Geneva to rent a couple of weeks ago. They were officially a couple at that time. So Brian was actually in Geneva then also! Now for who is actually moving in to the temporary home I am not sure about that. Only time will tell. We welcome Brian & Jenny even as visitors!
Ted Toburen June 14, 2012 at 09:03 PM
I'm moving back to Geneva! I've dealt with linebackers before...I'm not scared...much.
Rick Anderson June 15, 2012 at 12:39 PM
Now if Jenny makes U-turns in downtown Geneva to get a parking place then I will be upset with her.
Carla June 15, 2012 at 10:33 PM
It's funny how none of you know Brian Urlacher's reputation with women. Cheated in the wife with the fiancé. Cheated on the fiancé with 7+ women. This isn't a real relationship. Not going to last and no I'm not a scorned ex. Just don't understand glorifying someone who gets naked for money and acts as vile as she does and uses her sons autism for publicity.
no June 16, 2012 at 04:55 PM
Their neighbor has downs..
no June 16, 2012 at 04:57 PM
Terrifying screams at night... they wont last long here in G town.
Scott June 19, 2012 at 03:16 AM
Genevaman, I could not possibly agree more with your post, not to mention incredibly well spoken. Ignorant people like Pat are the problem with our society, not the people they're looking down their nose at. Thank you for voicing the majority of our community's views, and welcome such influential and sucessful individuals to this beautiful town.
Cari Barcas July 10, 2012 at 07:18 PM
Has anyone else had any close encounters with the couple around town lately?
Lois Lane July 10, 2012 at 08:31 PM
I'm scared I'm gonna have a close encounter with Carla, the heck with Jenny & Brian!
vet July 11, 2012 at 01:22 AM
Lois, this was absolutely hilarious!
John Tomaso July 11, 2012 at 03:55 AM
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?
Jeni August 03, 2012 at 01:50 AM
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! Jeni
Roy Ramis August 14, 2012 at 11:42 AM
I live near where they are. Welcome!

I'm dating her son and he goes to bridges academy
