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.
Seriously doubt the Mighty O is checking for you right about now, Jenny. Watch the interview after the jump! READ MORE
Former General Hospital and The Young and the Restless star Marisa Ramirez has landed a contract role on Blue Bloods. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ramirez has been bumped up from recurring and will stay on the CBS procedural as Det. Maria Baez, partner of Donnie Wahlberg’s Det. Danny Reagan. Ramirez told the trade paper:
It all still feels a bit surreal, Ramirez tells THR. From the first day, everyone was so welcoming. Working with Donnie and the cast and crew of Blue Bloods can spoil a girl. Total pros, each and every one, and all so supportive. I just enjoyed every minute. Truly, I never dreamed I would be coming back as a regular. To say I am grateful is an understatement. READ MORE
