Jenny McCarthy Denies Having Mocked Cousin Melissa McCarthy for Her Weight

July 29, 2014 Donnie Wahlberg, The View

Jenny McCarthy is jumping to cousin Melissa McCarthy's defense, except this time around she's found herself on the receiving end of criticism.

After a report surfaced on Radar Online claiming The View co-host once took a jab at the Bridesmaids beauty's weight, the blond bombshell has fired back at the rumors and insists there's no truth to the allegations.

"There is a crazy story going around that I once told my cousin, Melissa, that she would have to lose weight in order to get into show business. Nothing could be further from the truth," the bride-to-be told People.

The report claims that Jenny told Melissa she would have to shed some pounds in order to find success in Tinseltown while the curvaceous stunner was serving as a production assistant on her cousin's short-lived series Jenny.

"When she was starting out, I was fortunate enough to be in a position to get her a job on a show I was doing, to learn the ropes and get some experience on a TV set in front of the camera and behind the scenes," the former Playboy model explained.

But while Jenny may have helped pave the way for her cousin's career, she insists Melissa's success is all thanks to her own perseverance and talent.

"She has accomplished everything she has accomplished through hard work and her extraordinary talent, and I've only ever encouraged and supported and wished her the very best," the author said.

McCarthy also addressed the reports that her cousin was snubbed from her upcoming wedding to Donnie Wahlberg and insisted there's no hard feelings between the two, despite the fact that Melissa did not receive an invitation.

"'They also say that I've 'banned' Melissa from my upcoming wedding, which is also ridiculous," she said. "Donnie and I are planning a very intimate ceremony that will involve a very small group of our closest friends and that's itónot a huge production with hundreds of friends and extended families."
