Do we have a new Housewife on our hands?!

Jenny McCarthy revealed Monday on her SiriusXM radio show, Dirty, Sexy, Funny With Jenny McCarthy, that The Real Housewives of New York City cast member Bethenny Frankel emailed her to gauge her interest in potentially joining the show! "She said, 'Hi Jenny,' and I thought, 'Oh my God that's so weird, I'm watching the housewives of New York right now.'"

After getting over her initial shock regarding the creepy coincidence, McCarthy explained that the Skinnygirl mogul, who has never reached out to her before, asked her straight up if she would want to join the franchise. And while Donnie Wahlberg's wife is a huge fan of the show, she has some reservations about hopping on board Bravo's show.

"I like watching the drama," she explained. "The problem is I'd have to go in with a choice and that is to be the peaceful warrior or the s--t starter, and I don't know which one I'd enjoy doing. I don't want to ruin anyone's life but a lot of those bitches have to be slapped in the face."

Her co-hosts were divided. One thought McCarthy should stay away from the reality series, while the other suggested she practice "flipping tables" and "throwing glasses" that afternoon.

Each Real Housewives franchise always seems to be in the middle of some sort of cast shakeup, but based on this conversation, we don't think McCarthy will be joining up anytime soon. Frankel might not even be coming back for season eight! She spoke to E! News just hours before the most recent finale and dished on whether or not she'd return.

"I might be willing to come back," she admitted. "I will only do it if I can do it if I can give it my all. So, I have to decide what I'm doing. I have a lot of different things going on and I really want to make sure I could commit in the same way."

McCarthy, however, joked that if she's going to join the cast, she has to start "not paying my taxes."
