Barbara Disses Star

Even though I've never watched an episode of the View, I must say that they are dishing up quite a bit of delicious fun. As some (or all) of you may know, Star Jones has been of late a controversial co-host of the View run by her co-host Barbara Walters. The very week Star was verbally slapped by erstwhile Queen of Nice Rosie O'Donnell (who accused Star of using gastric bypass surgery to achieve her incredible weight loss), Rosie was hired at the behest of Walters. Yesterday Star apprised the audience that she was leaving the show when Barbara and the network had intended to do so at the end of the week. Barbara claimed that she was betrayed by Starr, barred Starr from today's show and future shows, and said that she and her co-hosts would have backed any version that Star conjured up to save face. Star denied that her whilom mentor had her back as Barbara had claimed and revealed that her contract was not renewed.

But I thought they were all the best of friends on The View!  Et tu, Rosie?

Star should say unto Rosie, a.l.a. Dwight Moody, "Madam, I prefer my way of losing weight to your way of obviously not losing it!"

Joseph, Star doesn't seem ready to succumb yet to those swords: had Star stayed on with Rosie, I might have enjoyed that View. Geo., great line: Jon, excellent memory!
