View Full Version : Star (1 R!) Jones Axed From "The View"

Star Jones Gone: Freebies Did Her In

It's official, folks. Star Jones is leaving ABC's "The View." Her last day is still being determined, but sources say by next Friday, July 6 or July 13, the ladies will be kissing and hugging her and wheeling out a fat-free cake.

She does not — repeat — does not have any other gig lined up, contrary to other reports this morning. "Her contract is up and she's gone," says a source. "They are working out right now how they will explain it to the public."

I am told that producers for the show had planned to axe Star last fall after the hoopla around her endorsement-plagued wedding. But chief anchor and co-owner Barbara Walters relented. "She felt sorry for her," says an insider.

In the end, though, Walters knew that when Rosie O'Donnell agreed to join the show, Jones was finished.

As for replacements: even though Gayle King wants the job :eek: (and would be good, I think) several guest journalists will fill in the extra chair for the last two weeks of July.

The show goes "dark" until Labor Day with reruns, and there may be no permanent replacement named while O'Donnell settles in.

"They're looking for someone younger than Gayle or even Deborah Roberts," says a source. But the goal will be to find a hot, young African-American journalist whose background is clean as a whistle. Talent agents, start your engines!

Can't we just do away with the show altogether? :wavey:

I know a lot of women who really like Star and will be sorry she's gone. I don't think they'll stop watching The View, though a few of them have told me the show has been stale for about a year, just dull and Rosie will either make it good again, or kill it, but it needs to go one way or the other and not just stagnate like it has.

I know I'm in the minority on wtaworld on this, but I think she looks really good. She's at a nice thin weight, her face looks a little big, but nothing bad, good hair. I wouldn't say she looks "hot" but she looks attractive and put together to me. She's a ton better than that sow she used to be, at least she did something to change her life (even if it's surgery) and did. :worship:

Star Jones was fired from The View. She announced today her departure from the show.

She said: "Something's been on my heart for a little bit, and after much prayer and counsel I feel like this is the right time to tell you that the show is moving in another direction for its tenth season and I will not be returning as cohost next year,"

She later told People (http://people.aol.com/people/article/0,26334,1208160,00.html) that it wasn't her choice:

"What you don't know is that my contract was not renewed for the tenth season," she tells

"I feel like I was fired."

The rest of the cast went through the motions and pretended to care even though inside they were probably screaming with joy. Unfortunately, we will never see Rosie O'Donnell give it to her for real.

What does Star have now? Tell me this. She has no more deals, her book is a joke, her man doesn't want to sleep with her....ho is gonna get fat again. She's gonna drown her sorrows into some KFC and a tub of buttermilk.

It would have helped "The View's" ratings had Starr Jones remained on the show because of the controversy between her and Rosie. I think Starr recognized that, and decided not to renew, kind of letting the network know she wasn't playing their game, and now they'll have to deal with a loud-mouthed pompass O'Donnell...LOL. I'm doubtful Rosie will last two seasons.

Jones is an incredibly intelligent woman that they obviously underestimated. Jones has been appearing in Payless commercials and interviewing red carpet attendees for other networks. Its probably the best career decision she's made in a long while. Let that sinking "View" ship go down alone.

Star is just one of those celebrites people love to hate. The free promotion fiasco made things worser, but she must be doing something right to recieve so much negative energy from the public.

I hear she is in talks with court tv and a few other networks so she will be fine. And honestly I am not a big fan of Star's and thought she should of been let go from The View after the wedding stuff. However, the way it was done and the catiness surrounding the whole situation really revealed the true characters of Barbara and her posse.

Bringing in a loud irrational disrespectful personality like Rosie just to get rid of Star was downright nasty. But Barbara has played this game for so long she knew just what to do in this situation. She had to maintain her faux image so why not hire one of the co-hosts enemies to push them out? It was a brilliant idea, but also very cold.:lol:

I know a lot of broads who like it, for whatever reason.

Let's face it, it's going to turn into Rosie's show with Joy being her side-kick. The show's rating are in the shithouse right now. The whole show is going to change, Rosie will either hasten its death, or Rosie will bring it back to good ratings. I mean, I know a lot of people think people won't watch because Rosie is out of the closet now, but I'm thinking, did anyone really think Rosie was straight before on her old show that was hugely successful? I hope the show succeeds, bitchy, butchy, celebrity-bashing Rosie who speaks her mind is totally entertaining and I might even TIVO it, when I get TIVO that is!

I second that motion. I think what they did was fucked up. I liked Starr and I think she added to the show's credibility, especially with Meredith. Now, you have an aging Barbara Walters, Joy (mindless ex-comedien), Elizabeth (boring ex-Survivor contestant) and Rosie O'Donnell??? YUCK!!!

The main difference between Rosie and Star is that Star uses her celebrity stature to recieve charity ( one small example: sponsored free everything wedding). Rosie on the other hand uses her celebrity stature and her time to help a multitude of charitys aswell organize her own charitable causes. Rosie O'donnel may be pushy and over bearing at times... but she has a heart of gold and has given more to this world in one week of her time then star jones has given in a lifetime. FACT..don't let other issues cloud your minds.
Oh...and to a select few of the posters calling her names...oh lord...check yourselves and your way of thinking aswell as your own posting history. I think youll find that your in no position to make such ignorant, missinformed and down right simple minded comments that your tempers cannot control.

Thats all i have to say on this subject... :kiss: ... :wavey:

Reynolds' Announcement Upsets Walters
By DAVID BAUDER, AP Television Writer

4 hours ago

NEW YORK - The gloves are off for the women on "The View." Creator Barbara Walters said she was "betrayed" by Star Jones Reynolds' surprise on-air announcement of her exit from the daytime talk show Tuesday. Reynolds said in a magazine interview she felt she was fired.

Either way, the "help wanted" sign is up again at the show, months after it was announced that Rosie O'Donnell was replacing Meredith Vieira as a cast member in the fall.

Reynolds' exit had been rumored for months, intensifying Tuesday after reports on "Access Hollywood" and in the New York tabloids that an announcement would be coming soon.

Still, Walters said she was taken by complete surprise when Reynolds announced her departure after the first commercial break on Tuesday. The announcement had been planned for Thursday, she said.

"I love Star and I was trying to do everything I possibly could _ up until this morning when I was betrayed _ to protect her," Walters told The Associated Press.

Walters also said she wasn't aware until she got off the air of Reynolds' People magazine interview. Reynolds, one of the original cast members when the show started nine years ago, said: "I feel like I was fired."

That seems to be the case. Walters said ABC network chiefs had decided last fall not to renew Reynolds' contract because its research showed that Reynolds' dramatic weight loss and 2004 wedding to banker Al Reynolds had turned viewers off. Reynolds had been criticized for a Web site that promoted companies that donated items for the wedding party's gift bags.

"We tried to talk them out of it," Walters said, "and we tried to give Star time to redeem herself in the eyes of the audience, and the research just kept getting worse."

Reynolds' spokesman, Brad Zeifman, said she would not comment beyond a prepared statement that did not address these issues.

Walters said Reynolds had known for several months that she would not be coming back, before Vieira's announcement in April that she was leaving.

"I would have loved for Star to have left and not said `I was fired,' and not make it look like the program was somehow being cruel to her," she said.

O'Donnell's hiring had nothing to do with the decision, she said. That April announcement had led to widespread speculation over whether O'Donnell and Reynolds could co-exist. O'Donnell had made several caustic remarks about Reynolds, saying that it was dishonest for her to talk about losing more than 100 pounds through diet and exercise without talking about gastric bypass surgery.

On the show Tuesday, Reynolds told the audience that "The View" had decided to move in a new direction.

"I'm not sure what the future holds," she said. "But I'm absolutely sure who holds the future."

Comic Joy Behar looked like she was shocked.

"Who am I going to fight with?" Behar said.

Reynolds replied: "Something tells me you will have somebody to fight with."

I agree with you. She was very fake...all the time. But so is Rosie (who I love to hate as well), so they're pretty much even.

I don't think Gayle King would be a good "fit" for this show at all. :confused: Now if they can get Whoopi to be on there...I might force myself to watch it. Heck, she played a season on "Star Trek: The Next Generation" wearing a ridiculous costume...why not this show? :D

Rosie making her sexuality public made no difference, because for years pretty much everyone knew she was a lesbian. :shrug: Starr on the other hand is a big fat hypocrite :rolleyes: How many times over the years did she go on, and on about loving her fat ass? Next think she goes under the knife to get rid of the very fat she was so proud of :rolleyes:

I think Soledad O'Brien would be a great addition to the show - though I don't know if she's looking for a new gig or would ever do it.

I've never really watched this show because i don't tend to watch day time tv but i think they should put a muslim woman fully covered except for her eyes. That way you would have a fundamentalist Muslim, a butch Lesbian, a middle aged New York Jew, and an all American conservative frat girl :bounce:

there should be a foxy boxing segment as well.

Star Jones was always someone I could take or leave on the show. But I do hope she rebounds and finds her old self again.

But if truth be told, I would love to see Gayle King or Whoopi Goldberg on the show. They would be a fantastic fit on my mind for that program.

I don't think Gayle would ever work with Baba Walters. Baba and Oprah don't like each other. Whoopi is planning a radio show on XM. I think they need to add an up and comer, who will blend with that loudmouth Rosie. Cuz believe me, Rose will take over the show and run it in the ground.

My theory is that the gay boys on this site hate her because she married a gay man. It's almost like they think he is a victim.

It would be a little hard for them to sit there with her when she went against what was planned for the announcement.

Rosie making her sexuality public made no difference, because for years pretty much everyone knew she was a lesbian. :shrug: Starr on the other hand is a big fat hypocrite :rolleyes: How many times over the years did she go on, and on about loving her fat ass? Next think she goes under the knife to get rid of the very fat she was so proud of :rolleyes:

So lying about your sexuality and acting like you have a fascination with Tom Cruise for years makes no difference? Ok, even if we let that slide what about her fake persona as the "Queen Of Nice"? And why is it ok for Rosie to make fun of Al's sexuality when she stayed in the closet for years? You would think she would reserve judgement considering what she wen't through.

I've already stated my opinion, so I'm gonna leave it alone.;)

I love the new honest Rosie, but I think ragging on Star for her husband's sexuality is way out of line for Rosie given her closet years (though who was she fooling :confused: ). Anyway, the Tom Cruise thing may not have been made up, I mean, I have a Rosie-type fascination with Little Masha, but that doesn't make me straight! :D

The Tom Cruise fascination wasn't a act she still loves Tom. :D

I think the only reason most people critisized Starr about her big old gay husband is because she was sooooooo in your face about every little freakin' detail of her wedding it made a lot of people crack from the built up hate. :lol:

You know when the View first aired Star was one of the best on that panel. I didn't always agree with her but she was always informed about her opinions and argued her point well unlike idiot Elizabeth. It was only after her engagment that she became so pointless on the show. Her viewpoint just became about her big old wedding and she regressed from an educated, professional into an 8th grader. So I do feel it was time for her to go. With that said I"m glad she did it on her terms. She was fired so why should she have withheld her statement? The View and Babs just wanted to save face that's why they're pissed. I thought her parting words were very nice and fitting.

I have to remember to watch Larry King tonight, but I think it's shitty the way they had Starr say her farewell and say her last day is July 28, and then tell her not to come back. Also, it was disingenious for Barbara (the old hag) to get up there yesterday morning and make it seem like they didn't know Starr wasn't going to show up and that she left in an unprofessional manner. Also, for Barbara to say that she did everything she could to help Starr stay on, but to no avail. Puhleeze Barbara, it's your show :rolleyes: I think it was equally tacky for her announce the addition of that racist bitch Rosie at the Emmys on the heels of her comment about Starr. That was a slap in the face. Then for ABC to make a very derogatory statement that the viewers had lost faith in Starr's credibility for her acts, not on the View, but off the show. If this is even true, why even say that. Just say that her contract expired and ABC chose not to renew it, end of story. No need to slander her name. I hope Starr sues ABC and Barbara Walters for everything they have. Nothing she did violated the terms of the her contract. If she didn't want to come out and say that she had surgery to lose the weight, that's her business. If we all know it already, why does she have to tell it? Rosie didn't come out about her sexuality until she felt like it.

Claws and cat scratching, backstabbing, jealousy,
good show material! Barbara is a producer of the show,
and what Barb wants, she gets. They wanted Starr off
the show a long time ago. Starr went off her way, and
that's good, why not. Why stay where you're not wanted.
Can you imagine their pre-show meetings? Ouch.

Now, that would have been something to see:
Babs and Starr and Rosie sitting around a table
discussing topics for the show - all hating one another.

Starr will land on her feet on another tv show. Why
not, she's more famous now than when she was on the
show.

Again, who watches this show? Why is it still on tv?
Babs is about 90 isn't she? Rosie O'Donnel? She's so
bitter and mean nowadays, her broadway show died,
her tv movie was horrible, she'll probably kill this show
off too in no time at all.

A "Starr" fill in! :devil:

A girl from General Hospital or something
who just so happens to be black and when Barbara asked
her what her character was on the show, she said a lawyer!

Barbara's reaction was pricless and the crowd
was lhowling at that one. Barbara laughing
with her head in her hands. :lol:

I agree with Starr. Its no wonder that Starr is sceptical of their decision. It wasn't that she was so unfavorable by viewers, but rather, she made positive changes in her personal life which overshadowed "The View", ABC, and Barbara Walters. Had Starr not lost weight, had not gotten married and had not tried to be the best "Starr" could be, they would have renewed her contract. I do detect a whif of racism.

Starr helped make "The View" a success, yet, nothing ABC or Barbara Walters did try to help make Starr a star. It appears they wanted to hold her down.

I could understand if we were talking about someone not in the media, but considering she is a star the standards are different. I just felt it was hypocritical of her to talk about Al's sexuality when for so long she didn't wan't to come out herself.

1. I don't know what she said about big old gay Al.

but

2. Not bringing your girlfriend to award shows is not equal to marrying someone in an attempt to be straight. Rosie wasn't deceiving people if you're dumb enough to believe that a celebrity just can't find the right man then it's your own fault because Rosie certainly wasn't talking about men in her personal life. :hehehe:

and

3. my post wasn't about whether it was right for Rosie to go after Al it was about whether she was in the closet....let's just say if Rosie was in the closet she left the door open for all to see if they bothered to look...most people never bother to look. :shrug:

1. Rosie actually talked about Al's sexuality in her blog implying that he was gay. I have to find the link because someone posted it on another board.


2. What difference does it make that Star married "Gay Al" while Rosie chose to not bring her girlfriend to an award show? In both scenarios their is a bit of deception. Of course many people gossiped about Rosie being gay for years, so on her part you would think a bit of decorum would be exercised when speculating about someone else. She could of just talked about Star's weight loss and left it at that but instead she wen't after Al for no apparent reason.

3. Well, even though you keep saying it was a known fact, she herself didn't actually come out to the public. And if she's dealt with the speculation and aggressive nature of the media concerning her sexuality you would think that would be off limits. It proves to me that Rosie is pretty much heartless.;)

but that's the debate isn't it? Whether or not Starr is just being herself or is she putting on a act? I really use to like her and her whole sponsored wedding thing didn't bother me in the least but when you go under the knife and get bypass surgery it's quite fraudulent to act like you did it with hard work and discipline alone. That's just not right, imo.


I don't believe she ever came out and told anyone she lost the weight through diet and exercise alone. She has always refused to discuss to how and why with anyone. There is no law which say she has to tell even when asked outright, how she lost the weight.
Other people have always come up with their own theories as to how she lost the weight then assign them to her as if she said them in the first place.

Star tells all her business on that show so why keep mum about that? I'll tell you why cause she had a book coming out about image and self-esteem and she had the facade going on that she was more than ok with being big to go have that surgery means you were not ok with it the whole time. When you talk about one aspect of your weight loss but then say no comment about other aspects something's fishy. She has talked about dedication, motivation to exercise, blah blah blah so when asked how did you lose the weight .... to then clam up is just foul. So why would she talk about her cosmetic surgery but not the weight surgery. Does she have to tell but when you talk about everything else it only brings attention to the one thing you won't say. :shrug:

Star brought this all on her own...People can bitch and moan about Rosie like she made Star work everybodies' nerves but she did that all on her own. She made that bed and she has to lie in it. Anytime someone uses their job as personal platform to get free stuff for their wedding....they're not living right. Star got fired from E! as well? Whose fault was it that time? :o

Harloo see the paragraph above....don't really care if people like Rosie or don't like Rosie but marrying someone of the opposite sex while you're gay is the ultimate betrayal and deception so yes I can see how Rosie would talk about Al and besides she's probably seen him backstage and no telling how flaming he is in person. :o

Star Jones has handled this in a way as to get some short-term attention and hopefully pick up a job right away as she is still a "hot-topic" (pun intended). Unfortunately, it does seem as though Star is messing with the wrong broad in Barbara Walters and also ABC and is likely to find herself working for a poor-excuse for a channel and not a major network station. Truth be told Star has always been a punch-line for everybody and she just seem to allow this to be taken to a new extreme over the last few years. I don't see any "whims" of racism at all so we can stop saying this right here and now. Star simply wasn't good enough and if the show goes down next year it's because Meredith Vieira has left not because of Star Jones. Really Star should be looking to someone like Meredith who is a respected and classy person and able to take her career from a daytime talkshow to joining the number 1 morning show.

At least she was the only one on the show with a working Brain. Now we have the biggest and vulgar loud mouth on the show. Rosie is disaster! She has way too many issues and she is way too angry. She screams at everything! Ugh!

When you put your business on national tv and have shows dedicated to your wedding, you give people permission to comment on your life. Rosie never talked about her sexuality on the air, so while it doesn't necessarily sit right with me that she is attacking someone else for their sexuality, she never opened the forum for it to be discussed in her case. Star was everywhere talking about the wedding and weight loss and cosmetic surgery and then gets mad when people talk about it? That's ridiculous. I used to like her and thought she was smart and intelligent, I'm sure she still is but I can already see the interview 5 years down the road, when her and Al have broken up and she talks about how she turned into a woman who was willing to do anything to get a man. Oh and to the person who said Babs and ABC did "nothing" to make Star a star? I guess allowing her to be on a show for 9 years with a legend is nothing.

I think she bought herself a lot of short-term publicity, but long-term, I think she's hurt herself by making a fuss. She could have bowed out with a "story" but everyone would have known the truth anyway. I really blame Barbara a lot, if she had problems with Star's "bridezilla" routine, she should have said something to her at the time and stopped it. Same for the stomach stapling. If they felt she was losing credibility with the audience due to that and not being up-front about her stomach stapling, they should have spoken to Star at the time and told her to shut up about her weight loss or come clean.

I got the impression from the interview that had Barbara fired her personally instead of through her agent and then husband, Star would not have felt as offended as to come out against them as she has. Anyway, good luck to the View, Star cannot save it from its sinking rating and the loss of Meredith, perhaps Rosie can. And good luck to Star!

you like it when she falls but even more when she's in
view and gives you more to laugh about.

My sis doesn't like Starr at all but Barbara was
definitely in the wrong on her part of this.

And atleast Starr did admit that publicizing her wedding and some other

give her some props for that.

I think the show has to gamble right now, it's been stale and getting staler for the last year or so, even people I know who always loved the View were starting to complain. With Meredith leaving, they have to do something drastic. I don't think Star, Joy, and that Hasselback person could keep it afloat. Rosie will either save it, or make it crater faster. I woud replace Star with a likeable black chick (40s) and ditch Hasselback for a young 30ish hispanic girl who's reasonably right-wing and can intelligently talk to Rosie about issues (if that's possible).

You think people watched the View to make fun of and laugh at Star? I always figured, people who disliked her, disliked her so much they wouldn't watch. :confused:

like one of the guys in that with a group many times things
can get heated quick with oppossing views and many of us guys
don't or won't listen for too long to what the other has to say.

Although, Barbara would be there to quale Rosie's temper.
Yet, that means no days off for Barbara. ;)

First, she's always said that she had medical intervention to lose the weight. What else could that mean? Second, you have to diet and exercise in order to lose the weight even though you have gastric bypass surgery. Have you ever seen what people go through when they have that surgery? After watching a special about it, I'd rather go through the diet and exercise route. But, I think it's for people who's health can't tolerate the length of time it takes to take the weight off. She did put in a lot of work to lose that weight, believe that. That surgery is not a miracle weightloss procedure.

Also, it's just wrong for Rosie to comment on anyone's sexuality, mainly because it's gossip. Whether it's right or wrong to marry someone of the opposite sex to mask your own sexuality is not up to anyone to judge, but for someone to comment on it publicly is hurtful and heartless. If she hates Star (for whatever reason :shrug: ) or if she has a problem with the way Star is living, then make it about that, not about the woman's husband. That's hitting below the belt.

Lastly, you say that it was wrong for Star to use ABC to get free things for her wedding, but it's okay for ABC to accept whatever they've received in return for her doing that? Reportedly, Star's wedding boosted their ratings and ABC said that they didn't fire her for anything that she did on the show, it was what she allegedly did outside the show.

I think if Barbara or ABC had any dignity or there was any truth to what they are claiming, then Barbara should have left well enough alone on Star's last day and not brought it up to bash her on the next day. But, Barbara is not above deceit and publicity, nor is ABC. This industry is dog eat dog and Barbara eaten a lot of dogs to get where she is today. However, just because she is a legend in the industry, it doesn't make it okay to treat another human being like they have Star and malign her character. I think it is racist and I think the whole replacement deal smacks of tokenism. Why get another black co-host to replace Star? Why is it about race?

Anyway, I think the whole thing is sordid and disgusting. Besides the View is going down the tubes anyway and will never be the same without Star, in my opinion. Regardless of what some of you may say, Star does have her fans and just because you don't like her, doesn't make her unlikable to many. In her fans' opinion, it's ABC and Barbara Walters that look petty.

No, I meant like Rosie is so left wing, they need a right wing person who can talk to her in a way where the show comes off somewhat balanced and doesn't turn into a political shout-fest. There are a lot of right wing people out there, particularly women in the over 40 group who I guess the View targets, who are not going to want to listen to Bush bashing. I'm not sure that's possible with Rosie, she can be so overwhelming. Hasselback is not confident enough to handle Rosie. They've always struggled with the "young girl" on the show, Debbie Metaopolous or whatever didn't work, Lisa Ling left (fired??), and Hasselback is too dull. I think if they found a young hispanic woman with some right-wing leanings, it could balance the show and help the demographics on who I guess they're trying to attract as viewers.

I've always thought of Rosie as more right wing then left, but that's just me. I truly believe the only reason she hate Bush is because of his stance on the gay marriage issue. I do agree that they need someone on there who's not going to agree with everything she says, e.g. Joy :rolleyes: and someone who will stand up to her and go toe to toe with her, which is why I was wishing Star would stay. Anyway, I don't feel that Rosie's that intelligent, she's just loud and opinionated, and tries to push her ideals and beliefs off on other people.

Reynolds: ABC Said to 'Make Up a Story'
Jun 29 11:01 PM US/Eastern
Email this story

NEW YORK


Ousted cast member Star Jones Reynolds said Thursday she was told she could "make up a story" about why she was leaving "The View" and her colleagues would have gone along with it.

The news that Reynolds wouldn't have her contract renewed for a 10th year on the daytime talk show exploded this week into a bitter war of words involving show creator Barbara Walters.

Reynolds, appearing Thursday on CNN's "Larry King Live," said she'd been told in April that she wasn't coming back but kept it secret. She revealed it on Tuesday's show, taking Walters and ABC by surprise with the timing.

The truth _ that Reynolds' ABC bosses didn't want her back because her personal popularity was plummeting _ might never have been known without the fight.

"They said you can make up a story," Reynolds said. "The audience didn't deserve for me to make up a story. That's not fair."

Longtime ABC newswoman Walters has confirmed the intended deception, but said it was done to protect Reynolds' reputation and feelings.

ABC said it canned Reynolds immediately after Tuesday's show because her announcement, and an interview with People magazine, took the network by surprise. Walters told The Associated Press that she felt betrayed and ABC said it couldn't trust Reynolds to tell the truth if she remained on the air.

Reynolds said she was "having trouble reconciling" ABC's statement with being told earlier that she could lie about her exit.

Marjorie Note: Sounds like to me that ABC fired her because she wouldn't lie about the reason she was leaving the show. I'm glad she told the truth. You can tell Star has a great sense of justice and doesn't mess in that deception bullshit.

I don't see this "make up a story" thing as any big deal. First of all, Barbara already said earlier that they told Star that she could say anything she wants in her last day show (which was supposed to be Thursday). Second, this is not an event where the absolute truth is essential... they say ABC News, but this is not news. And third, it's common to provide a high-level, vague story around firings and resignations because the exact reason is nobody's business.

Anytime someone uses their job as personal platform to get free stuff for their wedding....they're not living right. Star got fired from E! as well? Whose fault was it that time? :o

I have never said that Star wasn't responsible for some of her antics during the show. While I know the hate for Star is strong she simply did not deserve to be disrespected at the hands of Barbara after 9 years of working on The View.

ABC, Barbara Walters,and her producers were the ones who green lighted Star's wedding fiasco. Let's be clear on something: Celebrities get more free stuff than anyone on earth so why is Star's case different? If you read her statement from the Today interview she said that she would of done if differently. She basically regretted the negative press that came from the whole mess. It was the wrong decision to promote it on The View in such a manner. The wedding shows racked up ratings, but angered some fans.


Harloo see the paragraph above....don't really care if people like Rosie or don't like Rosie but marrying someone of the opposite sex while you're gay is the ultimate betrayal and deception so yes I can see how Rosie would talk about Al and besides she's probably seen him backstage and no telling how flaming he is in person. :o

The ultimate betrayal to who? Star is the one that married Al. And Star has stated that she and Al discussed his past. This is not Terry Mcmillian, she knew his history and still decided to marry him. The "ultimate betrayal" would be if she didn't know anything at all about it.

Furthermore, it's none of Rosie's business and I don't understand why anyone would take up for her when she was closeted for years. Rosie want's to question someone's sexuality when she use to be a fake. It's just being a hypocrite, but like I said before the woman is heartless.;)

Barbara Walters is a cold, calculating bitch. If Barbara, the produces of the show and ABC did not like how Star was talking about her wedding or conducting herself in its buildup, then they should have pulled her aside in a production meeting and said something. But to use that as an excuse to fire her is bs. And then to insult her by bring Rosie to the show is too much. Do you think if Rosie had disrespected Barbara for being an old washed up **** on some blog, she would have been offered a job on the View or said disparaging comments about Meredith she would be on the View? Of course not. And then for Barbara to be totally spineless and not telling Star personally that her contract wasn't being renewed but instead had to hear it from her AGENT, is pathetic! And then go on everyday and smile for the cameras as if nothing is wrong would be too much for anyone. How would any working adult like to be told not from your boss, but second hand, that you wouldn't have a job in two months, but your're expected to sit at your desk and smile for the public as if nothing is wrong. How many people on this board would just sit and take that until they're asked to leave for good? Weather or not you liked Star, that's not how you treat someone who's been a part of your organization for 9 years and who helped make you the success that you've become. I hope Barbara remembers there is such a thing as KARMA.

I wonder what makes everyone think that people on the View didn't say something to Star? Let's say they didn't say a word, so what? In the TV, if your popularity goes down you get canceled that's what happened to Star. If she was so outraged at what ABC and Barbara Walters was saying why did she wait until 3 days before she had to announce it? Barbara is a bitch but so is Star. I can only suspect all that was done to her was just karma. :shrug:

Barbara Walters is a cold, calculating bitch. If Barbara, the produces of the show and ABC did not like how Star was talking about her wedding or conducting herself in its buildup, then they should have pulled her aside in a production meeting and said something. But to use that as an excuse to fire her is bs. And then to insult her by bring Rosie to the show is too much. Do you think if Rosie had disrespected Barbara for being an old washed up **** on some blog, she would have been offered a job on the View or said disparaging comments about Meredith she would be on the View? Of course not. And then for Barbara to be totally spineless and not telling Star personally that her contract wasn't being renewed but instead had to hear it from her AGENT, is pathetic! And then go on everyday and smile for the cameras as if nothing is wrong would be too much for anyone. How would any working adult like to be told not from your boss, but second hand, that you wouldn't have a job in two months, but your're expected to sit at your desk and smile for the public as if nothing is wrong. How many people on this board would just sit and take that until they're asked to leave for good? Weather or not you liked Star, that's not how you treat someone who's been a part of your organization for 9 years and who helped make you the success that you've become. I hope Barbara remembers there is such a thing as KARMA.

I'm sure Star's not the first woman Barbara doged and I doubt she will be the last. She's extremely rich and in her 70's what exactly is karma going to do to her? :confused:

According to Star, her televised wedding was in the top five for its slot of the year. Which is why she is questioning ABC's reasoning and her sudden "unpopularity" with viewers. She thinks its smoke and mirrors.

yeah but just because people tune in to see a spectacle doesn't mean the participants are popular. She hyped it so much and people ragged on her and talked about her gay husband enough I'm not surprised that people tuned in to see it for themselves. Doesn't mean that they then tuned in the day after. :shrug:

Exactly!! Boy was she horrible in the days leading to the wedding. The way she treated Meridith on national t.v when Meridith asked if her daughter could accompany her instead of her husband has got to be the most despicable display :rolleyes: Personally she'd be on my shitlist from then on if I were Meridith :mad:

Bottomline: Barbara had no spine to tell her
"friend" what was about to go down!
Four months!

Hate Star, fire Star, but given the way
Barbara portrayed them as so close you
could've given her enough respect to
tell her straight up.

Then, as more comes to light, Ms.Walters
isn't as real as she says. :cool:

Star got fired, it happens.
But man what a stabb in the
heart from one you say as such
good and close people as she did Barbara.

Well I think that if Star's wedding was such a downer to the shows ratings in its build up then why have a show devoted to it right before the actual wedding? ABC can't have it both ways and it just sounds like a poorly thought out lie. And what was wrong with how Star announced that she was leaving, what difference in the greater theme of things does it make if she announced it on Tuesday or Thursday? Absolutely none. It's not like she said anything derogatory about Barbara, ABC or the show itself. And this isn't Karma, its just poor management by people with no moral compass or sence of descency. Like I stated before if Rosie O'Donnel had made derogatory statements about Barbara or Meredith, you best damn believe she wouldn't have been offered a job on that show. To me that was a slap in the face. Who would treat someone like that, that you declare is a personal friend and who you have a 9 year working relationship with. I'll say it again, Barbara's a bitch, and the kind of shyt that she just pulled always has a way of coming back to haunt a person.

Star Jones is a big time Attention-Whore.

She made a big mistake by publicly fighting with Barbara Walters. Like her or not, Barbara is an icon in television. Babs has much more clout than Star will ever have.

Advice to Star:

Give it up, girlfriend. You're lucky if your greedy ass gets a gig on Public Access television.

and Paneru

I have no doubt that Barbara faked the closeness of their relationship just like I have no doubt that Star is faking the 'hurt' she feels over her close friend Barbara firing her. :shrug:

in other words they weren't close friends and both Star and Barbara knew that. They had an agreement to play off Star's firing and eventhough Star didn't go along with the plan Barbara was still in PR mode just as Star is now.


Star Jones Reynolds sorry for wedding spectacle
By Steve GormanFri Jun 30, 9:51 PM ET



Newly fired co-host of "The View," Star Jones Reynolds, apologized to fans on Friday for getting "caught in the euphoria" of marital bliss when she planned her lavish, freebie-filled wedding in 2004.

Reynolds' mea culpa for behavior that earned her the label "Bridezilla" in tabloid headlines two years ago came during an appearance on NBC's "Today" show, one of several interviews she has given since her messy departure from "The View" this week.

ABC and Barbara Walters, creator, executive producer and lead host of "The View," has said the negative publicity surrounding Reynolds' wedding extravaganza was a key factor in turning viewers against her, which ultimately cost Reynolds her job.

The former prosecutor, then known as Star Jones, came under fire around the time of her November 2004 wedding to Al Reynolds when she accepted expensive wedding supplies and services for free, donated by corporate "sponsors" in return for publicity.

On Friday, Reynolds, 44, acknowledged that she had gotten carried away with her nuptials.

"I don't think I took the viewers on the right journey with me, and I want to apologize for that," she said. "I was a 40-year-old who, according to urban legend, had a better chance of being kidnapped by a terrorist than getting married. And I was caught in the euphoria. And I think I used, and some would say abused, my celebrity in planning the wedding."

If she had it to do over again, Reynolds added, "I would be more humble, and I would allow them to see the genuine character of who I am, which I hope they see right now."

But Reynolds was less forthcoming about another issue that ABC and Walters said came up in network research last year showing that Reynolds was falling out of favor with viewers -- her abrupt and dramatic weight loss.

While Reynolds is widely assumed to have shed more than 100 pounds with the help of gastric bypass surgery, she has never publicly acknowledged undergoing such an operation while promoting the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

Asked about the issue by Roker, who himself has undergone gastric bypass, Reynolds would only say that "a medical intervention, doctors, had to step in to save my life." And she said found it "disheartening" that ABC "would use something so private ... at this moment."

Reynolds touched off a wave of public blood-letting when she caught Walters and ABC off guard by announcing on Tuesday's broadcast of "The View" that she would end her nine-year tenure on the show in July.

That same day, People magazine published excerpts of an interview in which Reynolds complained she had been given notice days before learning that Rosie O'Donnell, one of her most vocal critics, would be joining the show in the fall.

Walters, who had clasped hands with Reynolds, warmly wished her well and led the studio audience in a standing ovation on Tuesday, opened the next day's show with the frosty declaration that Reynolds was not welcome back.

Walters later said that she felt betrayed that Reynolds refused to stick to an understanding she had reached with ABC to leave the show with "dignity" -- by inventing a reason for her exit that the network and "The View" would support.

Well, the rumor is that is singer Brandy (who is filling in on Wednesday and Friday) does well, she will be offered the slot. That is because they are looking for an African-American, early to mid thirties (Brandy is 27), who has no "issues" (I think that means a spinster with no children; Brandy has one child, but has never been leagally married).

This is so absolutely true, but I think no one pays attention because what she says half of the time is so idiotic and she's like a little mouse. Whereas, Star may have been a shameless self-promoter, but she also advocated and defended issues affecting blacks, children and women.

I like Brandy but she doesn't have any backbone and will let Rosie and Joy run all over her. One thing I liked about Star was that she didn't let the co-hosts or guests get away with making racist statements. She called them on it everytime. Brandy will probably just play the non-threatening African American female.
