Does media titan Oprah Winfrey have beef with The View's Jenny McCarthy? The outspoken blonde seems to think so. Last night, McCarthy paid a trip to the Bravo clubhouse to hang with Watch What Happen Live's Andy Cohen, along with her boyfriend, Blue Bloods star Donnie Wahlberg. McCarthy dished with Cohen about having a deal with Winfrey for her planned syndicated talk show. Once OWN was created, Winfrey decided to place the show on her network instead, but McCarthy put the kibosh on the entire thing. McCarthy stated:
It didn't [work out], I left. I am terrified . . . I would be like OH NO [if we ran into each other].
Cohen went on to ask if she thinks she's on Winfrey's list and McCarthy remarked:
I'm sure there's probably a lot of people on her sh*t list, but I'm probably number 4.

I will tell you when I realized that I thought, ‘All right, if I don’t calm down I’m gonna be in serious trouble.’ I was in the middle of doing voiceovers, you know? And I remember closing my eyes in between each page because looking at the page and the words at the same time was too much stimulation for my brain.” READ MORE
