Jenny McCarthy Reveals Why She's So Afraid To Interview Oprah Winfrey VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Jenny McCarthy dropped by "Watch What Happens: Live" and revealed why she's so afraid of Oprah Winfrey. It stems back to a five-year deal she had with Winfrey to do a show together. In the end, the women couldn't agree. "So I’d be scared she’d beat me up," the new co-host of "The View" admitted.

Do you think you’re on her list?” Andy Cohen asked.

No. I’m sure there’s a lot of people on her sh*t list, but I’m probably not," McCarthy said. "I’m probably number four.”

The last time she appeared on "WWHL," McCarthy went into more detail about that deal. Apparently, she and Winfrey had an agreement to do a syndicated show, but at the last minute, Winfrey wanted to put the show on OWN. McCarthy wasn't interested, and so they parted ways. Things have a way of working out. McCarthy is now a permanent co-host on "The View," though viewers aren't warming up to her -- will she stick around?

Catch Jenny McCarthy on "The View" every weekday at 11 a.m. ET on ABC. "Watch What Happens: Live" airs every Sunday through Thursday at 11 p.m. ET on Bravo.
