McCarthy: LA move was best decision

Jenny McCarthy shudders at the thought of raising her son in Los Angeles.

The 41-year-old actress is mother to 11-year-old Evan, whom she shares with ex-husband John Mallory Asher.

The mother-of-one took to Twitter on Monday after watching a reality show about spoiled kids in her once adopted home of LA, and shudders at the thought of what life for her boy would have been like there.

"After watching Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, I gave myself a high five in the mirror for moving Evan to the opposite side of the country," she wrote (sic).

Jenny made the move from Los Angeles to her native Chicago, Illinois in 2012, and the following year moved from Chicago to New York City to co-host the View.

She opened up last year about how Evan was initially "hurt" by her celebrity.

The star said she took time to discuss her son's concerns and made it clear to her little boy fame isn't always glamorous.

"Recently he said to me, 'It really hurts my feelings when people come up to me and say Jenny, I love you! And they don't tell me that.' Now I understand why children of a celebrity go off the deep end because it's not addressed," she told the New York Post's Page Six.

She recalled telling him: "Honey, fame is not all it's cracked up to be. I get the 'I hate yous' as much as 'I love yous.'"
