The former model's new show was ""in a holding deal"" at Winfrey's network for four years - but it never aired and now McCarthy is taking it to VH1.
She tells Access Hollywood, ""It wasn't supposed to go to OWN.""
But McCarthy insists she has no bad feelings about the time she spent waiting for the show to air: ""It was the best. Oprah was so great in grooming me and I got to do a lot of shows with her and it was a great experience, but I had to move on.
""Now I'm doing a late-night VH1 talk show... it's gonna be sexy and naughty and funny.""
