Jenny McCarthy ditched Oprah!

Apparently, Oprah Winfrey‘s new network, OWN, is apparently struggling to find its feet, probably because creating a 24/7 network dedicated to Oprah that does not contain any actual shows featuring Oprah (except Behind The Scenes which is almost over) is a shit idea. But I digress. Anyway, Jenny McCarthy was supposed to have her own show, but decided to up and quit that bitch because she didn’t like the direction it was going in, despite the fact that as far as really, really, really bad decisions go, pissing off Oprah is up there with falling asleep between Casey Anthony and a pile of duct tape.

“Jenny wasn’t thrilled with the direction that OWN producers were going with on the show,” a source said. “She had been working with Oprah and her producers for over a year, developing this project for OWN. Jenny finally decided to embrace Oprah’s philosophy, which is to ‘follow your bliss.’ Well, Jenny followed her bliss and walked right off the project. McCarthy has now taken the concept for the show she developed for OWN to NBC to produce, the source said. SOURCE

The only thing more confusing than why she would walk away from Oprah is why anyone would give her a show in the first place. Seriously, I’m not going to go after Jenny for her views on vaccines, mostly because that’s like running across a minefield in clown shoes, but I will say this: if you’re going to get medical opinions from someone, regardless of what those opinions are, why would you get them from the Playboy model who once shit her pants? That’s now how knowledge fucking works people. Being good or smart at one thing does not necessarily good or smart at something else. “Well actually I’m just a linecook at Applebee’s, but you know … cooking a chicken, heart surgery … same basic thing, right?”
