This year's Emmys award kickstarted with several celebrities putting their best foot forward but before the event could begin, viewers were concern about Jenny McCarthy being the host of the pre- Emmy's coverage. The 'Masked Singer' judge stopped Christina Applegate for a small chat before the Emmys event and it seemed like McCarthy was not prepared to handle the interview.
During the interview, McCarthy told Applegate she wanted to be like her while growing up. However, people were puzzled as McCarthy is only one year younger than Applegate.

Many users were quick to express their views on social media. "Is Jenny McCarthy drunk? She just told Christina Applegate that she grew up watching her on TV and remembered thinking she wanted to be like her when she was older...but...she’s only 1 year younger than Christina. Christina seemed annoyed by the whole interview. #Emmys" wrote one user.
Another user brought attention to the age difference between the two. "Jenny McCarthy, age 46, going on and on to Christina Applegate, age 47, about how she watched her when she was growing up and wanted to be her when she 'got old' is grade A, D class b***hery. #Emmys," read the comment.
Many felt McCarthy should have prepared better before stepping on to the carpet. "Watching the Red Carpet for the Emmy's and Jenny McCarthy is horrid as an interviewer and did not do her homework on the people she's interviewing," read the comment.
Others echoed similar thoughts noting, "Jenny McCarthy is RUINING the red carpet. I am concerned about her germs getting on actual famous people who have talent." Another added, "Sticking to the issue of why she's there, Jenny McCarthy certainly didn't do her homework."
