Jenny McCarthy Tells ‘Nikki & Sara’ How ‘Singled Out’ Literally Went Up In Flames [Video]

Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer surely experienced a bit of stage fright when their talk show, “Nikki & Sara LIVE,” premiered in January (live TV ain’t easy, folks!), but you’d think they’d been doing this whole hosting thing for years when they welcomed their second guest, Jenny McCarthy, onto the set this week. Truthfully, McCarthy could put anyone at ease — perhaps it’s because she’s been through the MTV ringer herself.

The veteran TV personality shared a story with the ladies about how the hours leading up to her very first “Singled Out” episode involved a huge hotel fire. “I went to bed, woke up, and the entire hotel room was in flames,” she says in the interview below, after explaining that she’d lit a candle to soothe her sick boyfriend. “I was literally, like, throwing up black chunks and had to go do my first episode of ‘Singled Out’ two hours later.” Thankfully the blaze didn’t do any serious damage, and Jenny went on to become the outrageous star we know and love today.

Check out the full interview, in which the blond beauty tells Nikki and Sara about her new VH1 series, “The Jenny McCarthy Show,” and gives advice to Taylor Swift‘s (many) brokenhearted exes.
