The Last Star
Star Jones gave her final appearance on The View yesterday. ABC told her to not return to work this morning.
Star told the viewers yesterday that she will not be returning to the show come fall and that her last appearance would be in July. The news came as a shock to Barbara Walters, because although she knew it was happening she didn't know Star would announce it then. Perhaps this is why ABC is pissed and wants her out of the picture.
According to sources, producers and Barbara did not like the effect Star was having on the show. They felt that her constant plugging of products in order to gain freebees and her drastic weight loss reflected poorly on the show.
Make sure you watch the show this morning, I'm told hot shit is going to go down.
