MELISSA McCarthy is at war with her Mike & Molly costar Billy Gardell!
According to American tabloid the National Enquirer, Gardell is jealous of McCarthy’s Emmy success and Oscar-nomination for Bridesmaids.
“Billy feels he’s the real star of Mike & Molly, but it’s Melissa who’s getting all the attention,” a source said.
“He’s a longtime TV veteran who’s appeared on shows like ‘Judging Amy’ and ‘My Name is Earl,’ but Melissa is overshadowing him.
“Making matters worse, Billy thinks she’s reveling in it, and the tension between them is growing.
“The last straw for Billy was when the Emmy nominations were recently announced and he was left out again while Melissa got another nod.
“Billy is worried that Melissa is getting way too big for her britches, and it didn’t help that at last year’s Emmys she was crowned with a tiara. Billy’s ego is bruised.
“Right now there’s a rift because Mike can’t stand Molly.”
