For those who don't live in the Chicago, Illinois area, you might not be aware that Jenny McCarthy has a column for the Chicago Sun-Times' lifestyle section Splash. Her appointment to said position was not without criticism; as Chicago media columnist Robert Feder wrote at the time, "That sound you’re hearing is Mike Royko, Sydney J. Harris and Herman Kogan spinning in their graves," a reference to three of the city's most famous and well-respected journalists. Since its launch, McCarthy's column has lived up to its original hype, and Wednesday's was no exception: it's all about how she's using her spirituality to handle the rumors flowing about her potential dismissal from her hallowed post at The View.
McCarthy's short tenure at the show has not gone smoothly. Though ratings are relatively the same as before she joined, earlier this week, Radar Online published a piece that claimed that, according to an anonymous source, "viewers want to tune out the second she opens her mouth!” The show's executive producer has denied the rumors, but it must be frustrating to find out that the blonde you replaced, one Elisabeth Hasselbeck, has delivered a 20 percent bump over at Fox News.
