Jenny McCarthy is picking up where Elisabeth Hasselbeck left off, as she takes her seat on The View. What a step up from her Carl’s Jr. gig. I’m sure she’ll bring that extra special early 2000’s feel to the show and I hope that she sent Jim Carrey and Oprah gigantic thank you gifts for keeping her in the dimly lit spotlight that she’s managed to stay in.
Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor.
Really? Let’s review some of the things Jenny McCarthy has said — publicly. Things she’s said knowing someone was writing it down, ready to quote her on it.
(On costarring with Donnie Wahlberg, who is apparently her boyfriend now or something):
Let’s just say we visually give 50 Shades of Grey a run for its money. It gets steamy. I mean like really steamy. Being turned on by a guy is always fun but to have it legitimately happen to you on TV is to be turned back into a 12-year-old. By the time we get into the groundbreaking interview, my face turns fifty shades of RED.
(On doing ecstasy):
I found myself holding a tree to brace myself. The texture felt so good that I decided to rub my head and boobs all over it. It was a tree I was humping!
And I’m not even going to touch the whole Autism thing.
Joy Behar is set to leave the show next month, but I’m pretty sure it’s unrelated.
