Oprah Tells Jenny McCarthy She’s Not On Her ‘S—t List’
Jenny McCarthy told Andy Cohen on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live that she’s likely on Oprah Winfrey’s “s—t list” after she walked out of a deal with the media mogul’s OWN network, but Winfrey says that’s not the case.
McCarthy chatted with Cohen on Oct. 29 and admitted that she was scared of Winfrey. “I did a deal with her for five years, but we, we kind of shook hands,” she told the host. “I would be scared she would beat me up.”
Back in 2011, McCarthy backed out of talk show on the network that she had signed on for in 2009. According to reports, the creative team at OWN was to blame for McCarthy’s decision. “Jenny wasn’t thrilled with the direction that OWN producers were going with on the show,” a source told Fox411.com at the time.
“She had been working with Oprah and her producers for over a year, developing this project for OWN,” the insider added. “Jenny finally decided to embrace Oprah’s philosophy, which is to ‘follow your bliss.’ Well, Jenny followed her bliss and walked right off the project.”
McCarthy, currently a host on ABC’s The View, claims she tries to steer clear of Winfrey following their fallout. “I am terrified,” McCarthy said, referring to the prospect of bumping into her former mentor. “I would be, like, oh no!” When Cohen asked if she was on Winfrey’s list, the former Playboy Playmate answered in the affirmative.
"I'm sure there's probably a lot of people on her s--t list,” laughed McCarthy. “But I'm probably number four.”
After getting wind of the Watch What Happens Live exchange, the iconic talk show host took to Twitter to clear the air, assuring McCarthy that no one, not even her, is on her “list.”
