Does media titan Oprah Winfrey have beef with The View's Jenny McCarthy? The outspoken blonde seems to think so. Last night, McCarthy paid a trip to the Bravo clubhouse to hang with Watch What Happen Live's Andy Cohenalong with her boyfriend, Blue Bloods star Donnie Wahlberg.

It didn't [work out], I left. I am terrified . . . I would be like OH NO [if we ran into each other].

Cohen went on to ask if she thinks she's on Winfrey's list and McCarthy remarked:

I'm sure there's probably a lot of people on her sh*t list, but I'm probably number 4.

Don't look for Anderson Cooper and Star Jones to go on a BFF vacation anytime soon.  The CNN anchor and daytime talk show host is steaming over remarks Jones made about his decison to come out as a gay man. During an appearance on a "Today's Professionals" segment Jones wondered if Cooper came out to boost ratings for Anderson. Jones remarked at the time:

I've been in daytime television for a long time. He's a daytime talk show host and when the ratings slip in daytime, the hosts tend to tell you lots of things about them. I remember Oprah said she smoked crack. Oprah said she was pregnant at 14 and considered suicide. There were times that you generate information for ratings.
