    Star Jones is Fired - Freebies did her in

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,201093,00.html

    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."

    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.
    Don't know why I smiled when I read this.

    It's about time! She has been on the outs with the other hosts for a while! I think they need to replace her with Ananda Lewis, she's got great presence and she doesn't seem like the type to be afraid of Barbara! LOL

    Re: Star Jones is Fired - Freebies did her in

    I am sooo pissed at my local ABC station. I missed the first 8 minutes of today's show so they could show us more pictures of the flooding in the region. Hello...they could have done that during the rerun of Tony Danza's show or wait until the news at noon.

    I hope someone puts up what Barbara said today on youtube.com.

    DING DONG...STAR IS GONE!!!! Now, we just need to replace Elisabeth!

    Yeah I heard about that on Good Day L.A. All I can say is good riddens! Hopefully she'll go back to being a "lawyer" and stay the hell out of the spotlight. She eternally irritated me during her "my wedding this, my wedding that crap."

    Bye Bye Star...you will NOT be missed!

    Re: Star Jones is Fired - Freebies did her in

    I wonder if the tabloid reports are true that ABC wants to replace her with Gayle King (Oprah's friend)?

    Yep. LA Times reports about Star's big mistake:

    The daytime soap that is "The View" took another turn today when it aired without co-host Star Jones Reynolds, who was asked not to return to the ABC gabfest after ambushing producers a day earlier with a surprise announcement about her departure.

    Reynolds, whose contract was not renewed for next season, was originally set to tell viewers about her impending departure on today's program and then remain on the show until July. But she caught co-hosts Barbara Walters, Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck by surprise Tuesday when she interrupted a segment on air conditioning to say that she would not be coming back in the fall.

    Re: Star Jones is Fired - Freebies did her in

    Darn - I was really looking forward to Star and Rosie battling it out - there is no love between those two - and it would have been great reality tv!

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    Re: Star Jones is Fired - Freebies did her in

    actually, im glad she s gone..the new improved skinny married Star I couldnt stand she would sit there wth a disgusted look on her face almost every show I caught she has been acting like she was so much better than the other hosts for a long time. and that damn me me my wedding crap got real old fast.. The fat single star was much better

    now if they would get rid of that annoying Elizabeth I would probably start watching the show again on a regular basis

    Re: Star Jones is Fired - Freebies did her in

    Oh yeah, Ryan Seacrest had her on... Apparently he interviewed her yesterday and thought maybe what she said was why she got booted. She said it wasn't And that they'd told her she'd be gone the 6th or another date.

    Then Ryan roke the story to a guy from US Weekly

    Re: Star Jones is Fired - Freebies did her in

    from what I heard, the audiences polled said they had trouble believeing her. first her big over the top wedding that she got comped for and gave free advertising on the view for. and then the weight loss that she wouldn't talk about. Joy had made a statement about going on Jenny Craig about a year ago I think and Star claimed that she was going to a nutritionist and that it was a private thing so she wasn't going to talk about it. well as rosie put it,, you don't lose the amount of weight she did by doing pilates. also she was having a boob job when she " almost died" and she denied the plastic surgery as well. Barabara was right when she said the view made star a star. the problem was she took the stardom to the max and just like kathy lee it turned into her downfall. I wish her luck and I am sure she will bounce back. if nothing else she could go back to practicing law again. as far as elizabeth goes, I think she will be around for a bit. she plays off well against joy and it will be interesting to see how rosie fits in. It's possible they will only go with the four because rosie is like star... bigger than life and very over the top.
