Jenny McCarthy doesn’t want to run into Oprah

Jenny McCarthy

A few of you might remember this, but a while back, Jenny McCarthy was supposed to get her own show on Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN network. Based on her track record, I’m guessing it was going to involve her farting and/or talking about farts. Anyway, turns out the deal fell through, and according to Us Weekly, Jenny told Andy Cohen on WWHL that she might be on Oprah’s sh!tlist now.

The sardonic blonde explained that she had a falling out with the mega-mogul, 59, after a tentative deal — McCarthy was to have a talk show on Winfrey’s OWN network — apparently fell through. “I did a deal with her for five years, but we, we kinda shook hands. I would be scared she would beat me up,” McCarthy revealed.

When Bravo’s Cohen asked McCarthy to clarify what happened with the the deal, she confirmed that “It didn’t [work out],” suggesting that she walked away to pursue other interests. “I left. I am terrified … I would be like OH NO [if we ran into each other].”

“Do you think you’re on her ‘list’?” Cohen asked. “I’m sure there’s probably a lot of people on her sh*t list, but I’m probably number 4,” McCarthy estimated.

So just putting this out there and all, but if you’re hanging onto The View by what is now basically a string, maybe picking a fight with Oprah might not be the best idea. I mean, picking a fight with Oprah AT ALL is like renting a summer home on the Bikini Atoll, but really? This is the fight you choose for yourself? Oh, that poor dumb dumb …

UPDATE: Oprah chimed in on this situation via Twitter:
