The Incredible Shrinking Star

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Here goes that old bag Barbara Walters flapping her lips again about another high-profile African American:

“Barbara Walters has revealed that Star Jones had her ‘View’ co-hosts hide the fact she’d had gastric bypass surgery. ‘She decided to have a gastric bypass operation, but then she decided not to tell anybody,’ Walters told Oprah Winfrey Tuesday. ‘Then we had to lie on the set everyday because she said it was portion control and Pilates,’ Walters said. ‘Well, we knew it wasn’t portion control and Pilates.'”

Everyone knew it took surgical measures to deflate that blimp-like body. It’s strange that Barbara felt the need to put Star on blast like that. Especially for someone who looks like she’s experienced a little knife action herself now and again.


STAR STRIKES BACK: Check out Star’s response to Barbara’s comment:

“‘It is a sad day when an icon like Barbara Walters, in the sunset of her life, is reduced to publicly branding herself as an adulterer, humiliating an innocent family with accounts of her illicit affair and speaking negatively against me all for the sake of selling a book, It speaks to her true character'”.

LMAO. Star Jones is like: Check Mate B**ch!

    what is up with her skin? when my grandfather died and we had his wake, his skin color was the same as Star’s from her bust to her she getting her makeup done by the mortician? :-/

  • Re

    That arm…it’s just not suitable for such a large head. Everybody can’t be skinny (but no-one should be that large, and I FIRMLY believe that).

    And I used to think Barbara Walters was such a respectable journalist.

  • ATLBlogger

    Woooooo….she has came a MIGHTY LONG WAY!!!! 🙂

  • I Don't follow I Lead

    I think it would have been a safe bet to guess that Ms. Jones lost weight with the assistance of surgery, so I never understood what the big deal was, or why people felt some type of betrayal because she didn’t just come out and say it. Get over it already.

    Overweight or Skinny I like Star, and will always hope good things happen for her.

  • SMDH

    Barbara needs to sit her homewrecking black male phucking knifed up looking looing ass down herself..

    That being said, however, I don’t get the secret.. Stevie Wonder could see that Star Jones had gastric surgery..

  • serene

    She’s just saying what we already knew at the time… whats the story. Barbare is promoting her memoir. ya mad at her but everybody read supaheads book…….ish don’t make no sense sometimes

  • daristar

    I like Barbara! Star Jones asked everyone at the View to LIE at the beginning because she didn’t want to be the “poster child” for gastric bypass. The point Barbara was making was that it made everyone uncomfortable, including the audience, because it was obvious that she had had the surgery. Coupled with the fact that she was promoting her wedding in such an aggressive way, the audience didn’t know who she was anymore and couldn’t identify with her.

  • kaly

    why are people interested in talking about her even though these are fake things? you should have known the fake news about her pregnancy and her joining the rich men seeking affairs site called S u g a r M i n g l e.c om.. I can not believe any piece of her news.

  • Wenzel Dashington

    that poor little folding chair. you can do it. stay strong.

  • Tbeenitsince 87

    I wonder if she really thinks she looks good? bless her little heart, she should have just stayed big or lost it naturally or something, cuz man that HEAD and them bad weaves/wigs DO NOT HELP her cause oka

  • Re

    @Wenzel Dashington

    Hahahahaha, you’re silly

  • BB

    They were asked to keep it a secret because Star was selling her book around the same time which was about weight-loss through prayer and pilates. She came to my former church in Brooklyn to promote the book and I’m sure the pastor knew she was lying…Rosie O’Donell was the first to call her on it. She wanted to make a profit from her deception plain and simple.

  • Celebrity CSI

    Even with Star looking like an anorexic siamese cat…..who can Barbara Walt put on blast? Wasn’t this broad just in the news talking about having a fling with some married senator? Hussy. Barbara is too old to be carrying out like this & Oprah is too old to be asking about another woman’s woes…still calling somebody “boyfriend” 25 yrs later. lol

  • Shavon Denise

    Okay Barbara was just keeping it real! It is what it is, dont be embarassed because you got a gastric bypass operation and make everyone lie for you. Star was the main one talking about how secure she was with her weight and then to say she got the surgey would make her look like she lied to all the over weight women. But, it is what it is, Barb is a whistle blower but she aint no snitch cuz Star wasnt keeping it real.

  • Lush-Us Lipps

    Barbara is a shyt starter – just look at the Don Trump and Rosie O’Donnel fued. Trump busted her a** out on several occasions.
