Jenny McCarthy was ecstatic to when she found out that Josh Groban was going to be a guest on her debut episode.
So, imagine how upset she was when realized that the 31-year-old recording artist decided to back out of the program after showing up to taping.
“He did show up, [but] I think the go-go dancers [his team] took a look at and thought they were a little too sexy for their taste,” Jenny told Access Hollywood. “Five minutes before my first show taping, [Josh’s] team removed him.”
“I was really surprised when Josh Groban left; I mean, it’s not like he’s going on ‘Oprah’s Favorite Things’ — it’s ‘The Jenny McCarthy show,'” Jenny’s funny sidekick, Michelle Buteau, tells The Huffington Post. “It’s laid-back, sexy fun — and tits. What man wouldn’t want to be a part of that?”
On Thursday, McCarthy and her crew were ready to record their first episode; however, they lost their guest.
“Jenny was so amazing that night. She didn’t even flinch — she was a true professional. She thought quickly and pimped her sister,” Michelle reveals about Jenny’s sister and makeup artist, JoJo. “With her drink in hand and not a hair out of place, home-girl started the show with the same amount of love and energy as she would have done with her original guest. You go girl.”
“The Jenny McCarthy Show,” will premiere on Friday at 10:30 PM on VH1.
