The trouble with messing with one McCarthy, is that the one might get you back… Jenny McCarthy, Melissa McCarthy’s cousin and the host of The Jenny McCarthy Show, tore into film critic Rex Reed after he had given Melissa and her new film, Identity Thief, a bad review.

Reed’s problem with film actually turned out to be a personal problem with the comic and actor, and he wrote in the New York Observer that she was a "gimmick comedian who has devoted her short career to being obese and obnoxious with equal success." That didn’t go down too well with cousin Jenny, who told E! Online "I don't have the whole story, but, I do know that, after being in this business 20 years, it's really crummy that you get attacked in your personal life in general.” Beef!

Continuing, the talk show host fumed "That's obnoxious in itself. For anyone to attack like that, it's just wrong and hurtful, and it doesn't do anyone any good—not even Rex Reed, you know?" So what does Mr Reed have to say for himself? Quite a bit actually. "My point was that I object to using health issues like obesity as comic talking points...[McCarthy] is basing her career on being obnoxious and being overweight” he told WOR 710 FM, according to Indiewire. “And I don't think that's funny. I have too many friends that have died of obesity-related illnesses, heart problems and diabetes, and I have actually lost friends to this. I have helped people try to lose weight, and I don't find this to be the subject of a lot of humor. I have a perfect right to say that.” Can you smell that, readers? That’s right, looks like we’ve got some prime medium rare BEEF on our hands…
