Jenny McCathy recently stopped by Watch What Happens Live and dished on her failed talks show deal with Oprah back in 2011. Jenny told Andy Cohen, “I did a deal with her for five years, but we, we kind of shook hands. I would be scared she would beat me up. I am terrified. I would be, like, oh no [if we ran into each other]!” Andy asked, “Do you think you’re on her ‘list’?” Jenny answered with a laugh, “I’m sure there’s probably a lot of people on her sh*t list. But I’m probably number four.”
Sources say Jenny did not like the direction that OWN wanted to take she how and so she ditched the deal. “Jenny wasn’t thrilled with the direction that OWN producers were going with on the show. She had been working with Oprah and her producers for over a year, developing this project for OWN. 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.”
Oprah took to Twitter to dispel any insecurities Jenny had, “@JennyMcCarthy don’t have a shxt list. If I did you’d never be on it. Wishing you only good fortune, love and light and watching @TheView.”
I could see how Jenny would be intimidated by Oprah…its freakin’ Oprah but its cool she responded to Jenny’s claim and rebuffed her sh*t list thoughts!
