Today was a big day for lawyer/TV personality, Star Jones when she returned to the show that she was fired from, “The View.” Jones left the show in June 2006 amidst much controversy; she felt betrayed by both ABC and fellow host, Barbara Walters.
Walters and other co-host, Joy Behar decided to stir the pot again with Jones by mentioning how the station and the hosts did not reveal that she had undergone gastric-bypass surgery. “We tried to protect you. We were told, ‘Don’t say it was gastric [bypass]. Say it was pilates and portion control,’ ” Behar said, before adding, “You are now a skinny bitch. Congratulations.”
Jones faced public scrutiny for lying about her weight loss and having an over the top, sponsored wedding which ended in divorce.
