Jenny McCarthy And Sherri Shepherd Say Cheese After Getting Fired From The View

Jun 27, 2014 08:33 AM


Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd have both gotten the axe from their hit talk show, The View.

"The View will be moving in an exciting new direction next season and ABC has made decisions to evolve the show creatively," ABC said in a statement issued yesterday.

But the sassy ladies aren't letting getting fired bring them down. After news broke of their untimely television demise, the fired friends were all smiles when they took to Instagram with McCarthy's fiance Donnie Wahlberg. Because as we all know -- whatever happens on Instagram is totally real.

Along with the smiling pic, Shepherd, who has been on the show seven seasons, wrote, "Mr @DonnieWahlberg always takes care of his ladies @jennyannmccarthy & me! To be continued... ;O)."

Yesterday McCarthy took to Twitter, writing, "If Sherri goes... I go too. ... My View will be changing too ... Thanks to everyone at the show for your dedication and an amazing year."

Umm we have a feeling that the former Singled Out star didn't walk away from the high-profile gig because "sisters stick together." We have a feeling that producers wanted something different from the anti-vaccination queen.

CNN is reporting that Shepherd has known for months and was ready to leave. The news outlet also added that Shepherd kept mum on the news because she didn't want to upstage Barbara Walters' retirement in May.

Now that Walters has retired from the couch, Whoopi Goldberg will be the only remaining co-host.

Jenny McCarthy And Donnie Wahlberg Are Engaged

Apr 16, 2014 10:40 AM

Jenny McCarthy announced on The View today that she's engaged to Donnie Wahlberg!

"I just got engaged!" she said excitedly as she showed off her gorgeous ring. "It's a yellow sapphire." She was nearly in tears when she spilled the deets on Donnie's proposal, adding, "This weekend I was sitting with Donnie ... and he went into the other room and out came [my son] Evan with a card that said 'Will' and he handed it to me. Then Evan ran away and Evan came in with a card that said 'You.' ... I just started crying and then Evan came back into the room with the word 'Marry' -- but spelled wrong. The last time, Donnie came out with Evan and Donnie's shirt said 'Me' ... and he got down on his knee." Awww!

The couple first started dating last summer, and if they make it down the aisle, this will be the second marriage for both. Wahlberg has two sons from his nine-year marriage to Kim Fey, and McCarthy has a son, Evan, from her marriage to director John Asher.

After the show, Jenny tweeted the photo below and wrote, "Thank you for all the sweet wishes. @DonnieWahlberg and I are grateful and blessed. #love #bhlove."



Jenny McCarthy Shoots Back At Report Claiming Her Son Doesn't Have Autism

Jan 5, 2014 01:28 PM


Jenny McCarthy has slammed new reports that her 11-year-old son Evan doesn't have autism.

McCarthy tweeted on Friday:

    "Stories circulating online, claiming that I said my son Evan may not have autism after all, are blatantly inaccurate and completely ridiculous. Evan was diagnosed with autism by the Autism Evaluation Clinic at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Hospital and was confirmed by the State of California (through their Regional Center). The implication that I have changed my position, that my child was not initially diagnosed with autism (and instead may suffer from Landau-Kleffner Syndrome), is both irresponsible and inaccurate."

    "These stories cite a 'new' Time Magazine interview with me, which was actually published in 2010, that never contained any such statements by me. Continued misrepresentations, such as these, only serve to open wounds of the many families who are courageously dealing with this disorder. Please know that I am taking every legal measure necessary to set this straight."

McCarthy welcomed Evan with ex-husband John Asher in 2002, and over the years the 41-year-old TV personality has spoken publicly about her son's condition and been an outspoken advocate for autism awareness and treatment.

Jenny McCarthy Replaces Joy Behar On The View

Jul 15, 2013 11:40 AM


We already knew Jenny McCarthy was in negotiations to join The View as Joy Behar's replacement, and now it's been confirmed.

Barbara Walters announced the news on today's show, and said, "We are delighted that Jenny will be joining us as a permanent co-host on The View starting in September. Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor. She can be serious and outrageous. She has connected with our audience and offers a fresh point of view. Jenny will be a great addition to the show as we usher in an exciting new chapter for The View."

While Walters has been with the show since 1997, there has been quite a bit of turnover in recent years. Elisabeth Hasselbeck made her final appearance on the show last week, and earlier this year Behar revealed that she would be leaving when her contract expires in August. Other notable co-hosts include Debbie Matenopoulos (1997-1998), Meredith Vieira (1997-2006), Star Jones (1997-2006), Lisa Ling (1999-2002) and Rosie O'Donnell (2006-2007). Sherri Shepherd and Whoopi Goldberg are expected to return for Season 17, but Walters said in May that she plans to retire in 2014.

McCarthy has appeared 17 times on The View over the years, and she said in a statement:

    "I'm beyond thrilled to be joining Barbara and the other amazing women at the table. I'd like to thank ABC for this great opportunity. I'd also like to give a big thank you to Vh1 for their support and for allowing me to fulfill this lifelong dream. I look forward to helping make hot topics a little bit hotter, and showing my mom that my interrupting skills have finally paid off."

Jenny McCarthy Tells The View Amanda Bynes "Has A Possible Mental Disorder"

Jun 5, 2013 01:19 PM


Jenny McCarthy has waded into shark infested territory once again and insulted Amanda Bynes.

While guest hosting The View yesterday, she told the panel of women that she thinks Amanda could be suffering from a mental illness. Jenny confessed that she was scared of Amanda's Twitter tirade following her post about police officers being at Amanda's home.

"I feel so sorry for her," she said. "Why would you talk bad or upset someone who has a possible mental disorder? So I'm going to stay out of it."

Jenny "upset" the troubled starlet back in May when she tweeted that police had been called to her New York City apartment. "I hope they get her help. Enough of this circus. She needs help," she wrote.

Amanda retaliated by denying that she needed "help" and saying "Aren't u 50 years old? I'm 27, u look 80 compared to me! Why are you talking about me? @JennyMcCarthy you're ugly! Police weren't at my house old lady! Shut the f**k up!"

That definitely shut her up. The Jenny McCarthy Show host deleted her tweets and wrote, "Sorry girl. Looking out for ya."

However, Amanda was uncharacteristically quick to forgive. "Thanks! I'm sorry I offended you! You're beautiful! I was lying! I'll delete our tweets!" she wrote.

When asked by Sherri Shepherd yesterday if the incident scared her, Jenny admitted that it did.

"That's somebody that I'm not going to start a war with," she told the girls.

Jenny McCarthy Looks Super Glam At The Grove

It wasn't any normal day at the outdoor shopping mall, though!

Jenny McCarthy got all dolled up in a navy pencil skirt and black blouse to chat with Mario Lopez for Extra at The Grove today, and the blonde beauty was in such a good mood she gave us a wave on her way in!

The newly crowned VH1 talk show host is working the entertainment show circuit, and among many other topics, the scathing comments made about her actress cousin Melissa McCarthy were brought up in discussions.

Film critic Rex Reed called the Identity Thief star a "humongous creep" and a "female hippo" in his review, and her blonde bombshell relative is coming to her defense.

"When you have talent, you have talent. People shouldn't personally attack anyone who's in front of the camera. Judge the work, but not the way someone looks," McCarthy told Access Hollywood.

Jenny claims she was also pigeonholed into a certain stereotype by Hollywood.

"When I first moved out here, I really made a point that said, 'OK, I'm going to use my image to get in the door, but I have to use my brain to keep it going. It took a lot more than my implants to keep me going," she confessed.

We think you've more than proved yourself, Miss McCarthy!

Jenny McCarthy Shows Off Her Toned Tummy, Shares Secrets On Staying Slim

Dec 20, 2012 11:00 AM


Jenny McCarthy covers the January-February issue of Shape magazine, and we can't believe how tight the 40-year-old star's abs are!

Of course, there's a lot of hard work behind her amazing body, as the former Playmate of the Year reveals that she works out five days a week and watches what she eats. On her gym routine, Jenny tells the mag, "[I do] lunges, sit ups and pushups -- because I'm kind of working my whole body. Planking is still an awesome exercise for the core and your arms."

"Besides the actual working out, food is the most important thing," she added. "Especially in today's age how convenient fast food restaurants are, and how exhausted we are as mothers. It's too overwhelming that we sacrifice [healthy] food." So what's her fav snack? Watermelon! "It helps you if you retain water," she explained. "It's really filling and yummy."
