Melissa McCarthy Husband, Kids, Family, Height, Weight, Dead or Alive?

It all depends on who you will be asking. For those who got to know her as Sookie from the comedy-drama television series, Gilmore Girls and those who couldn’t resist admiring the Dena character in Samantha Who?; Melissa McCarthy is an actress. A fine, funny actress who hasn’t fallen short of the things that makes a phenomenal actress.

While the friends and relatives of Ben Falcone would assert that Melissa is the love of Ben’s life, his wife; buddies of Vivian and Georgette Falcone are bound to regard Melissa Mccarthy as their friends’ mum. Meanwhile, those who fancy the Melissa McCarthy Seven7 clothing line and those who have had reasons to work with the production company – On the Day – would respectively refer to Melissa as a fashion designer and a producer.

Presuming we talk to the guys who watched Melissa’s hosting of Lorne Michaels’ late-night live tv show, Saturday Night Live, they will most likely announce that Mrs Mccarthy gave them a good laugh and thereafter, proclaim that she is an excellent comedian.

However, Sean Spicer wouldn’t agree with this. He would probably point out that there is a fine, clear line between being an excellent comedian and a nuisance making fun of a White House press secretary. For Spicer, Melissa Mccarthy was definitely a pain in his butt while he was sitting on the Press throne at the office of the President of the United States.

If Melissa was admired for all her previous works in the entertainment industry, she was adored when she impersonated Spicer on Saturday Night Live. Almost everyone loved the Spicer gig. Even the man who was the subject of the ridicule admitted that some of the portrayals were funny. Nonetheless, he stressed that Melissa crossed the line at some point, and was being silly, stupid, malicious and unfunny.

One wouldn’t say Melissa McCarthy is the only popular name of her family. there are other McCarthys who happens to be related to Melissa. Jennifer Ann McCarthy who’s better known as Jenny McCarthy and sometimes regarded as Jenny Wahlberg is Mellissa’s cousin. Jenny is popular for several reasons which include being a model, actress, television host and an author. She is currently married to Donnie Wahlberg. They started dating sometime in July 2013, got engaged in 2014 and married later that same year.

Apart from Jenny, there is Joanne McCarthy, another cousin and a former professional basketball player. Joanne is Jenny’s sister. Per records, she got drafted by the Chicago Condor in 1998. Meanwhile, Jenny and Joanne’s cousin, Melissa was born in Plainfield, Illinois on the 26th day of August 1970 to her parents, Micheal and Sandra McCarthy. While her father is of Irish descent, it is said that her mother Sandra has the Irish blood mixed with English and German ancestry.

Growing up on a farm, Melissa was taught the doctrines of the Catholic faith and it was thought that she would make a career out of her love for playing tennis. Nonetheless, time showed that she’s cut out for comedy. After she graduated from a high school in Joliet, Illinois, Melissa moved to Los Angeles and then to New York in pursuit of a career in comedy.

The comedian and actress dated another comedian, actor and filmmaker – Ben Falcone for quite a while before they eventually got engaged and ultimately became life partners on the 8th day of October 2005. The Melissa-Ben marriage has been blessed with two kids. Melissa gave birth to their first daughter on May 5, 2007, and they named her Vivian. Almost 3 years later, on 22nd March 2010, the couple welcomed their second daughter Georgette.

Height, Weight

Melissa is 1.57 M tall and is often described as fat. However, she recently started losing a considerable amount of her weight and has attributed this to a change of diet and constant physical exercise.

It circulated sometime in December 2017 that the actress lost 75 pounds of her weight. That’s as far as we can tell about her weight. She was once body-shamed but now regarded as “sexy”. What she currently weighs isn’t known.

Is Melissa McCarthy Dead or Alive?
