    Default Star Jones lashes out at Barbara Walters about memoir

    Star Jones lashes out at Barbara Walters about memoir - omg! news on Yahoo!

    (sorry "feud" is NOT over)

    NEW YORK - Nearly two years after Star Jones left "The View" on rocky terms, the 46-year-old TV personality has criticized former boss Barbara Walters for writing about her.
    In Walters' new memoir, "Audition," she discusses how Jones wouldn't acknowledge her gastric bypass surgery on the air. She also writes about Jones' lavish wedding, which wound up alienating viewers as Jones accepted gifts in return for promotion.
    "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," Jones told Us Weekly magazine.
    Jones' publicist, Brad Zeifman, said Jones wouldn't comment further.
    Walters reveals in the book that she had a past affair with married U.S. Sen. Edward Brooke that lasted several years in the 1970s.
    The details about Jones are less juicy, but shed light on what happened behind the scenes on "The View" when Jones refused to publicly acknowledge the gastric bypass surgery she had in 2003.
    Walters says Jones, who'd dropped 160 pounds in three years, changed her mind after telling Walters she'd talk about the procedure on the program. Walters says she didn't want to be the "poster child" for the procedure.
    "I understood that, but it put us all in a terrible position," Walters writes. "It meant we virtually had to lie for Star, especially when she said again and again on the air that her weight loss was due primarily to portion control and Pilates. ... Joy (Behar), in particular, resented having to go along with the lie that implied that all one needed to do was sit-ups and ingest one cookie instead of two."
    Jones confirmed her surgery last year in a first-person essay in Glamour magazine. She said she "was scared of what people might think," and "ashamed at not being able to get (herself) under control without this procedure."
    In March, Jones quietly filed for divorce from banker Al Reynolds. The couple married in November 2004.

    Star is a total bitch, and tough shit bitch-this is what you get when you HIDE THE OBVIOUS TRUTH and make people basically lie for you, ya ugly bitch. Oh, and all of that 'humiliating' and 'speaking negatively'..please bitch what are you doing just now? At least Babs did not whore her marriage(to an obviously gay man.another lie there STAR?) out! STFU!

    *I hope this brings all the women of that show together and they bning out the long sharp knives and carve up a bitch Star!

    Ol'Babs told the truth. It's not like we hadn't figured it out anyway. That is a tiny portion of the book and I hardly think anyone would rely on Star Jones Sideshow to actually sell books!

    They both suck.
    She wanted to pretend she didn't have a bypass surgery and sell her wedding on tv/have it endorsed and Babs is a back-stabbing bitch.
    Both of them suck ass.

    Here's the thing though; wasn't her weight loss due to smaller portions and exercise? Gastric bypass; doesn't that make it so you can't eat as much which would be smaller portions? It's not the whole truth but who's business is it anyway?

    Al Reynolds was a banker? Was anyone aware before now that he ever had a job?

    Yeah, she always bragged about him being a successful banker for a well known firm. However, I think not even a year into the marriage he ended his position!

    Oh, Star please crawl back into your crypt..we don't care, it's not like the old balding bat is lying on you, now is it?!?

    The Enquirer claims that Star and Al are now squaring off over her 10 million fortune. Amazing that she could make 10 million.

    I think Baba is a bithc for dragging this married guy into it to make a buck - she doesn't need the money - what a greedy bithc she is.
