Holly talked about what it meant to recognize her good friend Jenny, who like Holly and Rodney, also has an autistic child.

"Someone called us the 'Thelma & Louise' of autism," Holly joked of her work with Jenny. "From the moment she called me and we talked about her son, we made a game plan and said no one else is talking about this. We know there are celebrities in Hollywood who have autistic children, so we felt it was important to talk about it."

"We wanted to honor Jenny today because we think she is a pioneer ¢€" she's brought more attention with her book and her candor ¢€" she says it like it is and that's what is so special about her. We are honored to honor her," Holly added.

When it came to walking the runway, the stars were eager and ready to strut their stuff.

"I don't know if I'll be any good at it, but I'll rock what I've got," NASCAR driver Danica Patrick smiled.

"I'm just hoping not to fall," Gabrielle Union joked.

And despite the light nature of the event, all the stars were well aware of the serious nature of the cause.

"I love children. I'm a mom and I have friends who have autistic children. I've seen just how much research has helped over the years and how a child's upbringing can be made so much better over the last 20-plus years, so just imagine what more research and more support can do," Regina King told AccessHollywood.com.

For Regina, whose mother has worked with mentally and physically handicapped children for over 15 years, it was a pleasure to help her dear friends.

"Holly and Rodney are so respected. We all want to support them in everything they do. You can see the results, and that's what's important. You feel like you're a part of something and you can see it working," she concluded.

The name Jenny McCarthy makes me cringe!
Honored for what giving out false hope and knowing other celerities...

If you want to help make a real difference go to the OPRAH Thread and say what you really think, as this is where others are being brain washed!

If anyone deserves to be honored it should be Alex for starting up this site..

People seem to be honoring her because she had a voice, and she used it. Problem is, she used it wrong.

About 3:15 today at the picnic on main stage jenny mccarthy in the most lisa ackerman style of feisty adorable commented that barabara walters said our kids CANT EVER GET BETTER and called her a b***h and said something about naysayers can stick her microphone up their BUTTS!


Way to stick it to the man, Jenny. Who cares if you're wrong? Anyone who disagrees with you is clearly a female dog, regardless of facts. Hold onto that misdirected hope, baby!

What I want to know is: What exactly in Barbara Walters's butt does she want to hear?

The question is, what will happen to her when it's revealed for all to see that she really is a stereotypical version of the blonde bimbo?

A stick up her rear is being kind IMHO.

Oh I dunno. Obviously she is promoting herself as promoting positive autism awareness regardless of the actuality of what she is really doing and is too egotistical to register what she is really doing is negative.

Reminds me of another person I know. Has a few blogs, writes nasty things about aspies, posts on here a bit, nick starts with "T", maybe you know him TLPG?

She shouldn't be. All she wants to do is sell a book that makes use of her son.

Eugh.....I don't like Jenny McCarthy. When she was on Oprah she sounded like a complete idiot. It makes me sad that simply because she is a celebrity with a pretty face people listen to her and think she should be honored, regardless of whether or not what she says is backed up with research!

I hope nobody is mad at her about helping her boy by giving him therapy so his autism is less now. My mother helped me and look where I am now. She wanted me to live a normal life as possible and be able to life a independent life in my adult hood and I'm glad she did that. I wouldn't want to be living my life in a group home or living my life not being able to talk well.
