Melissa McCarthy: BANNED From Jenny McCarthy's Wedding!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Many fans aren't aware of it, but Jenny McCarthy and Melissa McCarthy are cousins. 

There's not a ton of family resemblance, but the two were apparently close at one point. In fact, sources say it wasn't until Melissa's career skyrocketed after high-profile roles in Mike & Molly and Bridesmaids that the two grew apart.

Now they're so distant - physically and emotionally - that they have zero contact with one another, and Jenny has reportedly told friends that Melissa will not be invited to her upcoming wedding with Donnie Wahlberg.

"The cousins were close at one time, but they've grown distant over the past few years," one insider confirms.

So why did Jenny and Melissa go their separate ways? Friends say the feud stems from Jenny's efforts to help Melissa make a name for herself in Hollywood...which involved making some insensitive comments about Melissa's weight:

Melissa worked as a production assistant on Jenny's short-lived talk show way back in 1997. At that time, Jenny reportedly told Melissa that she'd never make it as an actress unless she lost some weight.

The comment as said to have lit a fire under Melissa, inspiring her to make it to the A-list without starving herself.

"[Jenny's comment] really hurt Melissa, and now she's having the last laugh," says the source. "She's proving you don;t have to be a size 2 with fake boobs to make it!"

For her part, Jenny reportedly feels that Melissa is ungrateful for all the help she provided early in Melissa's career.

Melissa confirmed that she won't be attending in a recent interview with Howard Stern, stating that she and Jenny reside in "opposite worlds."

Taylor Swift wrote a song titled "Bad Blood" about an enemy in the music business. We're pretty sure the subject was Katy Perry.

I, personally don't like Jennie McCarthy. I don't see anythinng in her, when she is on a talk show, or even care what she does otherwise. It is cruel to say the things she has said. She is fake and plastic, if she thinks she is better than her cousin, I think she has already been owned. Also, not every actress or actor is trying to, or look like a bony model. IMO Jennie is cruel, and I am not even going into her theorys about vaccines.

Don't worry Melissa - you aren't missing anything. It's only temporary.

I can only imagine how phoney Jenny is, until the curtain starts to fall, when the marriae is finalized. Donny may have money, and he may even be a good guy, but I don't think she has made the huge catch she says she has.

it has nothing to do with talent,. 'Not sure where the wedding is going to be but if it's a hotel or a sports stadium they will have an occupancy and weight restriction that just won't cover "Tammy" (who went to video in three minutes.)

Yes Melissa, while you dont have to be a size 2 you must be a size 10 or less, and YES, you must have fake boobs that dont look like cow utters.
Right now, you just look like a cow.

She can always go to the next one, or the one after that.
