Jenny McCarthy: Brian Urlacher and I are no longer an item

File this one under: We missed it when it was happening.

Actress/Playboy model Jenny McCarthy released a statement to People magazine announcing that she is no longer dating Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher.

"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 is an Illinois native, so it should be no surprise that she ended up (however briefly) with a Chicago athlete. The pair had dated for about four months.
