McCarthy: Rosie will bring heat

Jenny McCarthy will be watching The View with "beer and popcorn".

The 41-year-old former Playboy model announced her exit from the US chat show last month, with ABC executives confirming rumours former co-host Rosie O’Donnell was heading back to the programme not long after.

And Jenny has no doubt Rosie will “bring the heat” when she takes a seat at the table.

"I love Rosie. I have been a fan of hers forever,” Jenny told UsWeekly. “I knew they were looking to bring some heat to the table and there is no doubt that with Rosie there will be some heat. They are definitely going in the direction of fire."

TMZ reported this week the comedienne was in the process of closing a “one-year, seven-figure deal” with ABC executives.

Rosie previously served a moderator on the popular American daytime talk show from 2006 to 2007, departing after an on-air feud with former co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

And Jenny is now preparing for fireworks.

"It's going to be some exciting television," she added. "I will be there with my beer and popcorn at eleven in the morning. I can't wait to see how it plays out."

The star meanwhile appears to have already moved on since announcing her departure.

"Monday there will be a big announcement," she said. "Everyone should do something they love doing but that shows off their strengths and have fun while doing it."
