    Default Star Jones gets a new job!

    http://movies.msn.com/tv/article.aspx?news=244957

    The Associated Press

    NEW YORK -- Fair or not, Star Jones Reynolds has long been labeled as a diva — a perception that has often led to negative publicity.

    There was that hasty departure from "The View" last summer. The lavish wedding to her husband, Al, which she promoted relentlessly on the ABC gabfest. And her refusal to confirm or deny a rumored gastric bypass surgery.

    But these days, Reynolds is trying to put that image behind her as she attempts to shape her post-"View" future.

    "This is a new chapter, a new beginning. ... Absolute new Star," she said Wednesday in a phone interview with The Associated Press. "(A) very happy, healthy Star whose connection is through her family, through her community and completely in touch with what matters in life."

    She's appearing next week — Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, to be exact — as a guest host on "The Michael Eric Dyson Show," a syndicated talk show owned by the Radio One company, which targets black and urban listeners. And — get this — she's nervous. She's never done this before.

    "I'll try not to be nervous," she said. "I'll try not to let my voice squeak."

    But she's THE Star Jones Reynolds — She's got the gift of gab! She's saucy! She's opinionated! Reynolds doesn't seem like the kind of person who would get the jitters.

    "I'm just like the rest of you and everybody else," she said. "That is the dirty little secret. ... I want people to know that I'm connected at the hip, right with them."

    The 44-year-old Reynolds, a lawyer, began her television career in 1991 as an analyst for Court TV, and appeared on other shows, including her own, "Jones & Jury," before landing on "The View" in 1997.

    She announced in June she was leaving "The View" because ABC wasn't renewing her contract, drawing the ire of show creator Barbara Walters when the announcement wasn't planned in advance. At the time, ABC said it let Reynolds go because its research showed her weight loss and highly publicized wedding turned viewers off.

    Reynolds hasn't been seen much on TV since then, though she said she is producing a couple of specials for networks she would not disclose.

    However, she would welcome the chance to be on the small screen once again.

    "I miss the opportunity to connect," Reynolds said of having a regular television gig.

    "I was the host who liked to go into the audience, and that's why this radio show gives me exactly what I miss. ... I still have a lot to say, and I hope that people still wanna hear it."

    With her temporary radio gig on Dyson's three-hour show, which airs at 10 a.m. EST, Reynolds intends to talk about "real life issues," current events and her personal experiences. There's going to be an "Ask the Lawyer" segment ("You KNOW that," she laughs).

    "This is the very first time that I am going to be hosting a radio show all on my own, not as a guest," she says.

    "And you know the old saying — just because you make a good guest, doesn't mean you'd make a great host. So this is a really wonderful opportunity for me to just talk to people about things that matter in their lives. For the first time, people will be able to just get to me directly, and let's just go for it."

    Reynolds, who is producing a "year-end review of 2006" special for the black cable channel TV One, is a "busy woman." Too busy, she says, to turn on "The View," which is again making headlines with host Rosie O'Donnell, or even the "Today" show to watch "View" veteran Meredith Vieira banter with Matt Lauer.

    "You have to forgive me," she says. "I'm not watching television! Right now, I'm working my rear end off."


    At least on radio no one has to look at her.

    I hate the fact that anyone is giving this slut a job, but yet, I have to admit I kind of miss old Star. Not that much though.

    She's so marketable, it only took her 6 months to find a job.

    I can't wait to avoid another program she's on!

    I kinda miss the trainwreck that is Starzilla's incredibly ridiculous marriage, too. I like watching from afar, but I can't stand to listen to her self important voice.

    Is she completely in touch with the fact that her husband's ass is completely in touch with other mens penises?

    LMFAO!!!!!!

    Since it is a live call in show maybe we should flood her lines and ask for advice on what we should do if we are married to a gay man and how to lose weight like she did..

    ^^ you guys are too funny!

    Well she obviously didn't lose the weight screwing Al...
    And while Rosie gets on my last nerve, I applaud her for calling Star the fraud that she is with the mystical, magical stomach shrinking.

    And for a second I thought the title said 'Star Jones Gets a Nose Job'. That would've been way better.

    Poor, poor delusional woman.

    Now that she's not on view on "The View," the star power of STAR JONES is fading fast! Booked as motivational speaker at a luncheon for minority food service workers, Star got canceled because her name couldn't sell enough tickets to cover her $10,000 fee. Actual number sold: 20!
