In the early 2000s, Jenny McCarthy played a transgender character on the HIGHlarious sitcom Just Shoot Me.
Who knew that years later she would admit that she related so much to that particular role and that it was actually one of her favorite characters to portray!
The Dirty, Sexy, Funny SiriusXM radio host opened up about how much the role of Brandi (formerly known as Burt) made her feel at home.
Jenny said of the TV role:
“I feel like that inside. I always felt like one of the guys wearing, like, a Playboy bunny outfit. I was David Spade‘s buddy to begin with, so I was a natural fit, and I always felt like his brother. To play kind of the dude was almost too scary natural.”
It may have been scary, but the former View co-host revealed that her character was well-received by those who watched the episode!
Such a surprising piece of information — who knew Jenny could relate so much to Brandi!
