JENNY McCarthy has left Oprah Winfrey‘s struggling OWN network.

According to Fox News, McCarthy was set to create a television series for the talk show titan’s latest venture after signing a development deal in 2009. But the former Playboy Playmate grew increasingly frustrated with OWN’s creative team.

“Jenny wasn’t thrilled with the direction that OWN producers were going with on the show,” a source said.

“She had been working with Oprah and her producers for over a year, developing this project for OWN. Jenny finally decided to embrace Oprah’s philosophy, which is to ‘follow your bliss.’ Well, Jenny followed her bliss and walked right off the project.

McCarthy has now taken the concept for the show she developed for OWN to NBC to produce, the source said.

    Shocking that there hasn’t been a mass exodus of celeb-driven shows from OWN by now…

    They need to take dangerous, child-endangering, anti-science quacks like her off the airwaves altogether.

    I’m surprized that Oprah’s network took on the prodject in the first place. There many people that the network should consider promoting.
