They were all but inseparable starting in early 2007, but by this past April came the news that Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey were going their separate ways.

While others – including Hugh Hefner, a fan of the former couple’s – speculated on what went wrong, Oprah Winfrey is getting right to the heart of the matter by asking McCarthy herself, “Tell me, when did you know it was over? ”

In her response that airs on Tuesday’s The Oprah Winfrey Show, McCarthy, 37, says, “You know, the simple word I can give – and there’s a few, so let me say a few. The first thing is, when it’s not fun anymore, you need to start investigating and do an inquiry into the relationship.”
