Oprah Winfrey is taking Jenny McCarthy under her wing.
Following in the heels of Dr. Phil and Rachael Ray, McCarthy has signed a deal with Harpo Productions to develop multi-platform projects, including a syndicated talk show and a blog, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
McCarthy's blog launched Friday on Oprah.com and already features three entries from the actress.
In recent years, McCarthy has been a frequent guest on Winfrey's talk show, discussing her efforts in helping her son, Evan, combat autism. She also appeared this past Friday as part of Winfrey's Friday Live panel.
