All Moms Can Relate to Why Jenny McCarthy Isn't Coming Back to 'New Year's Rockin' Eve'

By

Jenny McCarthy started the decade by hosting Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve but she's decided that she won't be closing out the decade the same way. The Masked Singer judge says that she won't be ringing in 2020 by counting down to the ball drop with this year's hosts, Ryan Seacrest, Lucy Hale, Ciara, and Billy Porter.

Why is Jenny not taking part in the New Year's show? She says that her family has to come first. 

Jenny McCarthy is ringing in the new year and counting down to 2020 with her son.

When Jenny announced that she wouldn't be doing Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, there were quite a few questions. Why, after almost a decade, would she decide that her hosting duties had to be up? Did something happen over on ABC? But the 47-year-old says that the decision to leave had nothing to do with ABC. It had to do with her son.
