You've probably by now already heard all about the drama that unfolded during Mariah Carey's performance in Times Square on New Year's Eve. Carey and her team have been scrambling to explain what happened, placing blame on the show's production company, claiming that they purposely "sabotaged" her performance.
Jenny McCarthy, who co-hosted New Year's Rockin' Eve, has no sympathy for her. On her Sirius XM show, The Jenny McCarthy Show, McCarthy said she stopped feeling bad for Carey as soon as the pop diva started to place blame for her disastrous performance on Dick Clark Productions. McCarthy said:
I felt really bad for her, because it was that bad. … It was a complete train wreck. And like Donnie [Wahlberg] said, being in this business, I know what it’s like to have your prompter go out. I know what it’s like to have my inner ears go out. It’s scary, and it’s like your brain malfunctions and you’re on live TV. So I was like, you know what, I have sympathy for her. My sympathy stopped, however, the moment she accused Dick Clark Productions of sabotaging her performance.
Jenny McCarthy spoke out in support of the production company, saying that if Dick Clark were alive today, "He'd be on air right now fighting back." She went on to say that for Mariah Carey “to defame [the production company is] so incredibly insulting for the group of people who work their balls off preparing and rehearsing for their musical guests.”
