"We're shooting 'Masked Singer 3' in December and January, and my son, who is now 17, said, 'Can we please, please stay home this year?' And I said, 'You know what? He's going to be 18, he's going to want nothing to do with me,'" McCarthy told hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest. "We're so busy that I said, 'You know what, we're going to tap out.'"
McCarthy said she gave the news to Seacrest, who presents the show, last week.
