Jenny McCarthy Slams Mariah Carey For Claiming Dick Clark Producers Sabotaged NYE Performance

Jenny McCarthy, who acted as one of the co-hosts of Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest this year, is sticking up for her employer and slamming Mariah Carey over her now-viral performance.

“It’s completely unfair and bullsβ€”t for [Mariah] to blame Dick Clark Productions,” Jenny said on her SiriusXM show. “I think Mariah was nervous as hell. I think she chose really tough songs to try to sing along with. I think ‘Emotions,’ that song, I mean her voice is not there anymore. I don’t think there is a problem with her inner ears. I just don’t. I think she used it as an excuse.”

Jenny said that “sympathy stopped, however, the moment she accused Dick Clark Productions of sabotaging her performance.”

“Now I do understand our egos of course want to blame everyone but itself for mistakes. If Dick Clark were alive today, I guarantee he would be on air right now fighting back. He’s not, so I’m going to … I have never seen a production company more supportive of their musical guests. So for her to defame them was so incredibly insulting for the group of people who work their balls off preparing and rehearsing,” Jenny continued.

“Mariah didn’t do a sound check. She did whatever you would call like a dance move rehearsal holding her gold microphone, and she stood off to the side of the stage while she had a stand-in do a sound check,” Jenny added.

Mariah‘s reps have fought back with a lengthy statement.

    Not the biggest Jenny McCarthy fan but I’m glad she stood up to Mariah Carey. Mariah seems like the most egotistical, pretentious woman in the industry. She always blames her lack of talent on “technical issues” by production and crew. Case in point, last christmas she sang an awful version of her christmas song over a back track that went viral. She blamed technical errors and other people then too. It’s your own fault for not being prepared and doing the soundcheck yourself because you’re apparently “too good.”

    Ugh I can’t believe I’m siding with Jenny McCarthy of all people.

    Why would anyone believe Jenny McCarthy anymore than they believed Mariah was having technical difficulties, she was just fired from The View and was being paid to be there. It looks more like an attempt at getting asked back with all the praise she heaped on DCP.

  • Do Tell

    I love MC’s music like many do, and I think that in real life she’s a nice person, but I never watch her sing live on TV anymore. Ever since her emotional breakdown, I’ve noticed how she is different when she sings live.

    McCarthy said MC was nervous, and that’s exactly what I’ve seen in MC. It’s like she has anxiety in front of people when they are looking at her. I’ve never been to her concerts, but on TV, she does not sing like she used to when she first attained stardom. She was more carefree and relaxed back then. Now, she’s extremely self conscious and that’s why she’s always primping, prissying and acting strangely when she’s in front of groups or cameras. Just what I think.

    What in the hell does Jenny McCarthy know? She’s trying to keep her job because so many people complain about her being fake on TV – that’s all.
    Mariah had sound issues, that much is evident. As Andy Cohen said on Twitter today, she sang both of those songs full voice two weeks ago in NYC. Doesn’t make sense.
    The interview with Mariah’s manager makes complete (and detailed) sense.
