Jenny McCarthy Hits Whoopi Goldberg and Barbara Walters With Wild Accusations in ‘The View’ Expose | Entertainment Tonight

The TV host doesn’t hold back in an excerpt of the upcoming expose, ‘Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View.’

Jenny McCarthy doesn’t hold back.

The 46-year-old TV personality opens up about her “miserable” year at the view from 2013 to 2014 in Ramin Setoodeh’s upcoming expose, Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of The View; in an excerpt just published by Vulture, McCarthy accuses Whoopi Goldberg of being controlling, and compares Barbara Walters to Mommie Dearest.

“You know the movie Mommie Dearest? I remember as a child watching that movie and going, ‘Holy cow!’ I’ve never seen a woman yell like that before until I worked with Barbara Walters,” McCarthy candidly says.

Before the former model joined The View as a co-host in season 17, she appeared on the program to discuss her book, which argued that vaccines weakened her son’s immune system and triggered his autism. Upon arriving at the studio, McCarthy recalls being asked by a producer to meet with Walters. “I walked into her dressing room and she blew up at me,” she claims. “She was screaming, ‘How dare you say this! That autism can be cured?’ My knees were shaking. I remember my whole body was shaking.”

Paying bribes to get their kids in elite schools is going to send some very wealthy people to jail | Salon.com

Paying bribes to get their kids in elite schools is going to send some very wealthy people to jail

For decades, wealthy parents have attempted to get their kids into Ivy League and other exclusive schools by making large cash donations, often in the millions of dollars, to the college endowment funds. In some cases, they have endowed professorships and even donated the money to put up new buildings trying to get their kids in Yale, Harvard and other name-brand schools. The parents of Jared Kushner, for example, were said to have made a $2.5 million donation at the time their son was applying to Harvard. Kushner, the son-in-law of Donald Trump, did not have either the grades or test scores necessary to be admitted to Harvard under normal admissions procedures, but he got in anyway.

Paying the cash to colleges so their children would get a “second look” wasn’t enough for some parents, however. That’s where Singer, the man behind the scandal uncovered this week, came in.

“There is a front door of getting in where a student just does it on their own, and then there’s a back door where people go to institutional advancement and make large donations, but they’re not guaranteed in,” Mr. Singer said, according to an account in The New York Times. “And then I created a side door that guaranteed families to get in. So that was what made it very attractive to so many families, is I created a guarantee.”

Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin Indicted in College Admissions Bribery Case

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin indicted in college admissions bribery case.

9:15 AM PT — The U.S. Attorneys Office’s press conference just wrapped up, and they broke down exactly how this alleged scheme went down.

The lead investigators on the case say that a man named William Rick Singer created a fake non-profit, charitable foundation which served as front to launder payments from parents who wanted to solicit his services — most of whom allegedly paid between $200k and $400k for his help. Some payments apparently went as high as $6.5 million … and a total of about $25 million in payments/bribes were uncovered by investigators.

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin have been charged along with 48 others in a massive bribery scam involving some of the most elite colleges in the country.

Court records show the actresses and others allegedly paid hefty bribes — as much as $6 MILLION — to get their kids into various schools, including Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and the University of Southern California.

The charges include conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. We’ve learned Felicity has been arrested and is presently in custody. We’re told she will be released on a signature bond … which essentially is a promise to appear in court.
