In an interview with New You magazine conducted weeks before she announced she would not be returning as a co-host, Jenny, 41, was asked to predict where she'll be in 20 years. "Believe it or not," she said, "I think I'm in still on The View. I love the show."
Another 2034 prediction from McCarthy? "I want to have beautiful, healthy grandkids and still have Donnie [Wahlberg, her fiancé] be the hunky love of my life."
"He's my mirror," she gushed of her future hubby, 44. "Things were always unbalanced in my previous relationships—I've either been a teacher or a student. With Donnie, we're just equal. I have my own identity and goals and he has his, yet we're so similar we work on them together."
Let's just hope McCarthy's personal predictions are more accurate than her professional ones. She'll probably get some social media flak for her premature comments about a future in daytime TV, but as she told New You, "Twitter hate is going to happen."
"People are either with you or against you, and if you take a position and people don't agree with it, they can hate you for life," she explained. "When really, it's just a position you hold, that has nothing to do with your personal self."
