In an interview with People, Jenny McCarthy is slamming the rumors and setting the record straight by saying she did not criticize her cousin, Melissa McCarthy's weight.

Jenny tells People, "There is a crazy story going around that I once told my cousin, Melissa, that she would have to lose weight in order to get into show business. Nothing could be further from the truth."

Even though Jenny acknowledges she did help her cousin get a foot in the door of show business, Jenny further tells People that everything her cousin accomplished, "she has accomplished through hard work and her extraordinary talent, and I've only ever encouraged and supported and wished her the very best."
