Jenny McCarthy came to the defense of her cousin, Mike & Molly star Melissa McCarthy after Elle magazine debuted their November cover featuring the comedienne wearing a baggy coat, as opposed to the tight and sexy outfits they usually dress their cover stars in.
Jenny told her co-hosts on Thursday’s The View that “she looks gorgeous” and when it comes to McCarthy girls “no one makes us wear anything we don’t want to wear”
Elle came under fire when they debuted the new cover featurring the Bridesmaids star in an oversized, baggy coat, which many took as the magazine trying to camouflage the actress’ full figure. Alternate covers feature Shailene Woodley and Reese Witherspoon in slimmer, fitted coats.
Jenny continued to rant “the fall issue is about coats, get over it!”
