Ever wondered what it would be like to sip champagne and party the night away with the likes of Bradley Cooper, Tom Hanks, and Meryl Streep at an A-list Hollywood get-together? Well, Jenny McCarthy has a story for you.

For EW’s Greatest Story Ever Told video series, McCarthy recalls the night she crashed Madonna’s Oscar after-party at Guy Ritchie’s place (though the year can’t exactly be nailed down and – as she confesses – there was plenty of alcohol flowing that night). McCarthy and her friends showed up to the shindig and, though they weren’t originally on the list, managed to make their way in and have “one of the greatest nights ever” – with only a few minor bumps along the way.
