Thrifty actress Jenny McCarthy installed a stripper pole in her Los Angeles home at the height of her son Evan’s autism battle – because a real fireman’s pole was so expensive.
The actress/model opened the doors to her germ-free retreat, where her son is home schooled by teachers who understand his condition, to U.S. TV show Access Hollywood recently – and admitted there’s a naughty secret in his playroom.
As well as a climbing rope attached to the ceiling, there’s also a metal pole that McCarthy revealed is not exactly what it seems. She explains, “The fireman’s pole was, like, $2,000, and the strip-aerobics pole was $200.”
Meanwhile, McCarthy has bought the property next to her home and plans to turn both into a center for autistic children.
Little Evan is a recovered autistic child. source
