Oprah Winfrey Says Jenny McCarthy Is Not on Her ‘S**t List’

Discovery Communications, Inc.(NEW YORK) — If Oprah Winfrey stops by The View again, new co-host Jenny McCarthy has nothing to worry about.

The newest host of the ABC daytime talk show revealed on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live Tuesday that the one person she’d be scared to interview would be Winfrey thanks to a botched TV development deal the former Singled Out host had with OWN. The deal eventually fell through in 2011.

“I did a deal with her for five years and then we kind of shook hands.  So I’d be scared she’d beat me up,” the 40-year-old mother of one admitted.

Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen asked, “So you think you’re on her list?” 

“I’m sure there’s probably a lot of people on her s**t list,” McCarthy continued.  “I’m probably number four.”

Still, McCarthy doesn’t have to fret because the former queen of daytime TV offered an olive branch via Twitter Wednesday afternoon.  In response to the interview, Winfrey tweeted, “@JennyMcCarthy don’t have a s**t list If I did you’d never be on it. Wishing you only good fortune, love and light and watching @theview.”

Winfrey’s probably not upset because she has several new shows coming to OWN.  Houston Beauty, which premieres Saturday, Nov. 2, is a new docu-series centering on a family-owned African-American beauty school in Houston, Texas.  It’s Prime’s Time, a show that follows former NFL star Deion Sanders and his family, is coming to Winfrey’s network in early 2014.
