Star Jones Leaves The View
Just as I was putting the finishing touches on my review of Pop Rocks, I was hit with this news, Star Jones is leaving the View. Actually I first read it on the Access Hollywood and dismissed it as "crazy talk." Turns out, it was totally true.
A Review Of Jones "See-Ya": I have way expected the news. Of course to get to that point the gals indulged in idle chit-chat about something or other. An uncomfortable pause took place when Jones decided to lower the boom right in the middle of Hot Topics. Long story short, this great escape/exit came to Star after some contemplation. Meaning, the lumbering, creepy jerkazoid coming in September was took much for Jones to take. Star mentioned something about the show's "change of direction" which made an off-camera Bill Geddie bear down his teeth until they shattered into little bits.
Part II: The rest of the girls seemed to take the news well. Barbara Walters said something or other in her secret language. Joy Behar's clown-like face remained intact and Elisabeth Hasselback muttered something about shoes.
They're all leaving like the America's Next Top Model girls! Pretty soon it will just be Rosie and the animals she kills with her bare hands.
Update: Star was fired. According to People.com, this is how Star tells it: "What you don't know is that my contract was not renewed for the tenth season," she tells PEOPLE. "I feel like I was fired." She adds that she was told her contract wouldn't be renewed just days before news leaked that O'Donnell would be joining The View.
