Jenny McCarthy is furious with Mariah Carey and her team for suggesting that Dick Clark Productions was at fault for her epic New Year's Eve performance snafu.

McCarthy, who co-hosts Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest, is defending Dick Clark Productions. The host spoke on her SiriusXM radio show Tuesday about how she initially felt bad for Carey, but ultimately, any "sympathy stopped ... the moment she accused Dick Clark Productions of sabotaging her performance."

The model/actress spoke about how she knows what it's like to experience a technical failure like Carey did, but that doesn't give someone reason to blame the organization.

"It's scary, and it's like your brain malfunctions and you're on live TV. ... I have sympathy for her. I do understand our egos of course want to blame everyone but itself for mistakes, but I literally had a visceral reaction to her saying Dick Clark Productions did this on purpose and for ratings," McCarthy admitted. "If Dick Clark were alive today, I guarantee he would be on air right now fighting back. He's not, so I'm going to."

McCarthy said that Carey didn't even do a sound check before the event, despite a representative for the singer claiming otherwise on Monday.

"She did whatever you would call like a dance move rehearsal holding her gold microphone, and she stood off to the side of the stage while she had a stand-in do a sound check," McCarthy stated.

McCarthy concluded by observing, "Her voice is not there anymore," adding, "I don't think there is a problem with her inner ears. I think she used it as an excuse."

Dick Clark Productions itself has also denied sabotaging Carey intentionally, stating, "To suggest that [Dick Clark Productions] would ever intentionally compromise the success of any artist is defamatory, outrageous and frankly absurd."

Carey has mostly been quiet about the epic disaster on social media, only posting once about it.
