17 of 143: Jenny McCarthy confirmed on Aug. 16, 2012 that she and Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher have called it quits.

'Brian and I have decided to turn our romance into an amazing friendship,' McCarthy said. 'I will continue to be the biggest cheerleader for him. Go, Bears!'

McCarthy confirmed to reporters at the Generation Rescue autism charity event on May 24 that the pair were in fact dating. The TV host and Playboy model first linked romantically to the NFL star in April, when they were spotted dining in a Los Angeles restaurant together.
