Jenny McCarthy Says Relationship with Jim Carrey Stopped Being Fun

09/27/2010 at 01:40 PM EDT



They were all but inseparable starting in early 2007, but by this past April came the news that Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey were going their separate ways.

While others – including Hugh Hefner, a fan of the former couple's – speculated on what went wrong, Oprah Winfrey is getting right to the heart of the matter by asking McCarthy herself, "Tell me, when did you know it was over? "

In her response that airs on Tuesday's The Oprah Winfrey Show, McCarthy, 37, says, "You know, the simple word I can give – and there's a few, so let me say a few. The first thing is, when it's not fun anymore, you need to start investigating and do an inquiry into the relationship."





The actress and former Playboy model, who on the program also discusses her new book, Love, Lust and Faking It, also address her image while she was dating funnyman Carrey.

"I've learned that," McCarthy says, "and this is why my identification wasn't caught up [in] being a celebrity's … girlfriend."

"It wasn't?" asks Winfrey.

"It wasn't at all," insists McCarthy, as Winfrey presses her further by asking, "You are sure?"

"Absolutely," answers McCarthy. "I did check on that, by the way. I checked into myself. How does my ego feel? … My ego's fine. I'm a warrior mom [to son Evan, 8]. I always got back on my feet, and I know especially this year who I am."

Once Winfrey accepts McCarthy's response, the host goes on to say to her guest, "Okay, I'm gonna ask this … Just because I have to … Any chance you'll get back together, do you think?"

"God, another good question," replies McCarthy.

"That's sort of a simple one," says Winfrey, to which McCarthy says back, "I know. I didn't even think about that one, though."
