Star Jones:“Those girls were hateful on the View”

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Star Jones is cleaning out her closet, first to go was gold-digging Gaylord, Al Reynolds, now it’s her old team on the view:

“Those girls were hateful,” Jones says of her former co-hosts. In a new interview in the November issue of Essence magazine, Jones also opens up about “falling into a depression” after losing her self-titled Court TV show last year; her ongoing dispute with Barbara Walters (“Barbara set me up”); and her divorce from Al Reynolds, which was finalized in September. Responding directly to Reynolds’s infamous YouTube videos, in which he stated he “still loves” Star, Jones responds bluntly: “I’m not in love with him.” Jones, who laid low after the abrupt cancellation of her Court TV show, is currently in talks to make a non-scripted TV comeback. A sense of renewal she says she gained after spending an Under The Tuscan Sun-style summer at an Italian villa with girlfriends, including Natalie Cole.

Between Barbara Wah-Wah’s antique ass and Elisabeth Hasselbeth’s mentally challenged chatter, we’re sure that it must have been nastier than a hobo’s feet behind the scenes. Gaylord Al still needs to get a new hustle, his gravy train left a long time ago. That fairy needs a j-o-b!

    W/e… just saying what gets ppl talking. All that fighting they do on the view is driving the ratings so star is talking about how hateful they are. How long was she on this show….couldn’t have been that hateful W/e……star was dunzo when she left that show.

  • Oshie / who lives in a muthaphukkin pineapple under tha muthaphukkin sea?

    No, Star, your face is hateful.

  • jo

    Not to say Star is lying about “Those girls were hateful” but Star doesn’t seem to be the easiest person to get along with.

  • Anon

    Star needs to just sitdown and shut up… for the 9 years she was cashin’ those “The View” paychecks everything was fine. Now that she’s cashin’ “No Checks” girl is just trying to keep herself in the news! Star, it’s time to dust off that Law License, pick up some tailored suits and head to court… who knows, there still may be an opening in the Brooklyn D.A.’s office!

    Barbara needs to give George Washington his teeth back.

    Well Star JOnes was giving an interview and I am sure they wanted to know how it was working on the view. Any time you have more than 1 woman it will be drama so them being hateful I can see, women are catty.

    oh star she sure was on the view a long time for them to be hateful…she needs to go back to being a lawyer..

    Stop hating on Star, she is looking good and feeling good about herself. I have watched her on the air; on the view and other programs and I never felt that she was in denial about her Blackness. She always came across as a strong, intelligent, independent, self-assured, Black woman. Now I do think that Al is gay, and he was after her money. She finally wised up and got away from that troll. Her problems on the View started when she began to lose weight, the weight loss changed her from the resident ‘mammy’ into someone who was actually beginning to give the white women a run for their money – in other words-white women value weight as one indicator of beauty; they can be ugly as hell but if they are skinny then they are pleased with themselves. When she was heavy, Star was like the nurturing mother/mammy – think Butterfly McQueen in Gone With the Wind (sexually neutered), but when she started losing weight then she became competition. And we all know that the goal in life is to eliminate the competition. I do not think it is anyone’ business how Star lost her weight or tightened up her skin. So let us get beyond the baseless ill feelings that we have against Star and wish her well with the rest of her life!

    Hateful on the View? No ways! That show is a bunch of halfwits arguing about everything for the sake of ratings.

  • terry

    Star married Al b/c her ugly ass wanted a fairly tail wedding. As for the view, that’s show biz. Hell, talk with the original mom from the fresh prince. Rumor has it she was let go b/c she was upstaging Will Smith. And for the old school out there, John Amos left Good Times b/c Jimmy Walker was making it rain and John couldn’t take it.

    So damn,damn, damn!

  • Shay

    I totally believe her about the Barbara Walters thing. They wanted to fire her but paint it like she made the decision so they wouldn’t have to explain why she was a problem. Elizabeth is 100x more annoying than Star and probably has a lower viewer confidence rating so why is she still there? Bosses are never straight forward anymore.

    Star needs to let that View stuff go, its over abd she was no angel on there herself. She was damn annoying. As far as Hasselbeck that was her best friend on the show and the one who stayed in contact after.

  • jandsmama

    Star needs to give it up and try handling things in a more classy and positive manner. Her constant need to drudge up the past and be spiteful is only damaging her chances at future success. If you are done with those “hateful girls” then be done with them and stop talking about them and your time at The View.

    The parents on the shows you mentioned being they were older thought they were the stars. In the case of John Amos it really was a contract dispute. On Family Ties Micheal J. Fox upstatged Meridith Baxter Birney, which caused the same tension as with Fresh Prince.

    Star needs to STFU! From what people inside the industry say, she is no picnic to deal with. Star need to take some personal responsibility for everything that has happened over the past 3yrs. Her old tired, lonely, stretch out puccy fell head over heals for a gay hustler. She became NY’s #1 bridezilla & let it effect her job. She lost the best gig she ever had and now want to say those girls were hateful. She would go back in a NY minute is she were asked.
