She got the axe!

The National Enquirer
is reporting that Carnie Wilson was fired from her hosting gig at The Newlywed Game because she wasn't funny enough!

A source reveals:

"Carnie wasn't cracking up the audience the way the producers hoped. The contestants are screened for their laugh potential, and it's the host's job to keep everyone in stitches. Carnie was missing the mark."

So who is the Game Show Network eying as her replacement?

The View's Sherri Shepherd and comedian Jeff Foxworthy!

Better luck next time, Carnie!

    You seem to have missed the key element Perez… THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER! And you're reporting this as fact. You really are a complete moron.

    Sherri Shepherd? Lord, no! Bring back Bob Eubanks!

    Makes perfect sense since she SUCKED on that show. Made it unwatchable.
    Bring on Foxworthy!

    Chin up! There is always another opportunity coming along.

    Awww. She REALLY wanted and needed that job. :( I bet she's super sad. I hope the Wilson Phillips cd does well.

    I vote JEFF FOXWORTHY!!!

    Re: ass – Actually, ass, the Enquirer is right most of the time.

    I thought she got her stomach stapled like 10 years ago, so why does she still weigh 900 pounds?

    That sucks! I liked her show "Unstapled" - is it coming back for a second season. I like Carnie but I have to admit the couple of times I did see the "Newlywed" show, her comments/jokes seemed forced and just flat, which is weird because she's actually a funny person on the "Unstapled." I think some people are more relaxed in an off-the-cuff, unstructured situation, like the Osbournes.

    They actually thought she would be funny? I have watched that show before and she wasn't funny at all. I would rather watch reruns with Bob Eubanks but they don't air those. They should. The Game Show Network airs tons of old shows, but not the one I actually want to watch.
