    Jenny McCarthy
    Episode 29
    Growing up, Jenny McCarthy was often outshone in the classroom and on the athletic field by her three sisters. By the time she was 23, however, she was one of the most recognizable faces in America. On the heels of a Playboy layout that led to her being named Playmate of the Year in 1994, McCarthy shot to stardom on MTV's dating game show Singled Out. But what goes up inevitably crashes, as chronicled in this wild-ride episode Jenny McCarthy: The E! True Hollywood Story. McCarthy's glee at manhandling Singled Out contestants and her willingness to go over the top for a laugh only made fans love her more. Soon, her face was on magazine covers everywhere--one publication even had a weekly "Jenny Hot Meter" to track her fame. That's not bad for a former deli waitress from the south side of Chicago. Her dizzying rise continued with a starring role in the NBC sitcom Jenny, but it lasted only a handful of episodes, and soon her name was being followed with phrases like "flavor of the month" and "yesterday's news." For all the negative talk, though, McCarthy has never let the Hollywood machine grind her down. She continues to further her career, starring in a sitcom pilot and in movies such as Scary Movie 3. She can also list wife and mother among her credits. McCarthy has even written a book about her pregnancy.moreless
  • Laci Peterson
    Laci Peterson
    Episode 28
    Missing-persons advocate John Walsh showcased Laci's disappearance on America's Most Wanted and urged Scott Peterson to appear on the show. Peterson refused. • Television movies have been made about both Walsh's and Peterson's family tragedies. Walsh was portrayed by Hill Street Blues captain Daniel J. Travanti in Adam, while Peterson was played by former Lois & Clark star Dean Cain in Perfect Husband: The Laci Peterson Story. • Several weeks into the search for Laci, Scott contacted a realtor to inquire about selling their house and sold his wife's Land Rover, claiming it brought him bad memories and that he needed a truck for work. • Police placed a global positioning system (GPS) in his new truck to follow his every move. • Laci's case was reclassified from a missing-persons case to a homicide case before detectives ever found her body. • Detectives found Laci and the body of her unborn child in February 2003. The remains had washed ashore on a waterfront near Berkeley, California, less than two miles away from where Peterson went fishing on Christmas Eve. Scott was arrested immediately in San Diego. • At the time of his arrest, Peterson was playing golf. He had bleached hair, was sporting a goatee and had packed his car with camping gear, a water purifier, a fishing pole, four cell phones and nearly $15,000 in cash. He was also minutes away from the Mexican border. • Forensic pathologists were unable to determine the cause of Laci's death due to severe decomposition and the fact that only her torso was recovered. • Peterson hired high-profile lawyer Mark Geragos to defend him. Geragos, no stranger to the limelight, represented Winona Ryder during her shoplifting trial and Michael Jackson against child-abuse charges. • At the time of Peterson's trial, Geragos stated that over "5,000 individual articles consisting of 7,000 to 10,000 pages of printed text" had already been written about the Laci Peterson case. • Due to strange and unusual markings in a forest near the bay where Laci's body was found, Peterson's lawyer believes that members of a Satanic cult may have killed Laci Peterson. • Geragos has also suggested that the testimony of a female mystery witness could free Scott Peterson and lead authorities to the real killer.moreless
