After playing coy last week while making the official on-air announcement that she would be leaving The View, McCarthy has revealed the new place she will call home. “After much consideration, I’ve taken a job which allows me to do what I do best, which is talk without ever having to interrupt anyone,” McCarthy said on the show, and now SiriusXM radio is disclosing that she will be able to talk uninterrupted in her own series on satellite radio, according to Entertainment Weekly.
SiriusXM announced in a press release on Monday that McCarthy will be hosting an hour-long weekly series called Dirty, Sexy, Funny with Jenny McCarthy. The first show will be on Wednesday, July 16 and already has celebrity guests Chelsea Handler, Perez Hilton and the host’s fiancée, Donnie Wahlberg, scheduled to appear.
It’s likely that McCarthy, who openly admits that she can be a defiant rule-breaker, will fit right in with the SiriusXM family. The station took in radio bad boy, Howard Stern, after he was repeatedly fined by the Federal Communications Commission and allowed him to much more freely express himself.
Dirty, Sexy, Funny will tackle topics including parenting, marriage, dating and sex. “It’s no secret that I love to talk,” McCarthy said in a statement via Entertainment Weekly. “I’m excited to do it on SiriusXM without having to interrupt anyone or keep it clean. You can bet your sweet a** this show will live up to its title.”
Sherri Shepherd also announced two weeks ago that she would be leaving The View. “It’s been seven wonderful years on The View and after careful consideration it’s time for me to move,” Shepherd said in a statement to Deadline. “I look forward to the business opportunities that lay ahead for me and I’m incredibly grateful to my View family and my fans for supporting me on this journey.” No news on Shepherd’s immediate career plans yet.
