Remember that part of the time when Jenny McCarthy was co-host the View? If you need a reminder, McCarthy worked on the series from 2013 to 2014. She spent time on View was brief, but she certainly has stories to tell.
Jenny McCarthy gave the chance to her own show to do View
McCarthy was hired by ABC as a co-facilitator on View, causing him to refuse an opportunity to make his own CBS day talk show. The masked singer The judge pointed out that the experience was not quite what she expected, that she described as "miserable" and sharing stories about Barbara Walters who was shouting at her.
In an excerpt from the book Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive History of The View, by Ramin Setoodeh, McCarthy calls his Walters experience comparable to the movie Dear Mum. She explained
Walters was about to retire from the series, as McCarthy noted: "Imagine a woman like Barbara Walters. It's her last year and she does not want to leave. Think about it. And I'm the new dog there. "
McCarthy should bring knowledge about humor and pop culture
Given his background, McCarthy expected that she
humiliate in the show and provide his expertise on pop culture. This
The idea quickly disappeared because she was responsible for talking about politics, which was
out of McCarthy's comfort zone.
According to McCarthy, Walters would forget who was the
celebrities they were discussing and he was told that they could not discuss "pop
culture more because [Walters] do not know who the people are. "
She added how stressful it was for her because shifting gears
She did not want to approach the subject with the policy: "I panicked because I did not
consider me a political person Now I had to understand, "Am I going out
as a Republican or Democrat? Where am I on all social issues and
political problems? "
McCarthy is upset by the situation
McCarthy's time View was unpleasant and she explained, "I was going to work crying. I could not be myself. My fans were saying, "Where is Jenny? They do not let you be.
She continued, "Every day I went home and I was miserable. he
really been the most miserable I've had in my 25 years of show
business. I kicked myself for not taking the CBS position, of course. "
According to McCarthy, Walters would even criticize her clothes, as she shared: "Barbara would check what I was wearing. If she did not agree with her, or if that did not complete her outfit, I had to change. Mind you, she does not look at anyone's clothes, but mine … She wanted to start dressing like me.
She does not resent the hostile situation
McCarthy explained that there were tactics to avoid at Walters, noting: "When I heard the shuffling of her feet, I knew that Barbara was chasing me … Based on the speed of the brewing, I was hiding or phoned "
Despite the less than pleasant experience of the series, she does not hold a grudge, noting, "Look what Barbara did me. I had zero resentment. I loved him as a grandmother. She did not know better. "
