Star Jones and Wendy Williams Dish 'The View' Reunion

Talking head calls recent visit with Barbara and company 'intense'

Star Jones has been working the morning talk show circuit. And when she visited "The Wendy Williams" show Wednesday, Feb. 29, her girl Wendy didn't hesitate to bring up the recent return to "The View." Wendy said the tense reunion "made for interesting TV," but Jones simply used the stressful moment to segway into talking heart health and plugging her current gig at "Today." As you can see in the clip above, Jones also dished about VH1's upcoming movie adaptation of her novel, "Satan Sisters," during her visit.

When Williams brought up the reunion, Jones admitted, "It was intense. But you know what, stressful work situations happen to all of us, whatever work we do – no matter if it's a big public stage or a private stage.

"And actually, stress is a leading risk factor for heart disease in women. As my friend and colleague Dr. Nancy said, you have to recognize the stress in the moment, acknowledge it, own it and then toss it back at people. That's really what it's all about."


Jones made it clear she has no interest in returning to "The View" as a panelist, because she already has a daytime gig. "I do 'The Today Show' Professionals with the best you can imagine, Donny Deutsch and Nancy Snyderman," she raved, insisting she wasn't being catty about it. "Every time I get on the television, I get to be a part of that family."


Donny actually made news for saying that the ladies of "The View" owe his co-Professional an apology, but Jones shrugged that off. "I was there for nine years. It's fine," she told Williams. "I do appreciate the fact that Donny had my back. You did [too, Wendy]? That's my sister!"


In the clip above, Jones goes on talk about “Satan Sisters," her novel about a panel of talk show ladies and who she'd like to see cast in the VH1 TV movie that's in the works.

"The Wendy Williams Show" airs weekdays in syndication.

Continue to be you STAR, you are such a lady. And to those that continue to spread hate and negativity, look at your own life and compare your life today to your life yesterday, last week, last year... Move on people and let's help celebrate the good in people and the good that they do. We all make mistakes!!!!! GOOD LUCK STAR!!!!!KEEP SHINING!!!!

I used to watch Star occasionally on The View.  It seemed to me her destiny in life and on that show was the cultural promotion of black people.  She brought up "race" constantly.


Let's say they were talking about the Oscars--she would say that she hoped that Chris Rock would have gotten the hosting job.  Once she said that she had been pulling for Terrance Howard to win Best Actor--really, what a surprise.


I honestly think she's a racist with a huge chip on her shoulder.

I enjoyed Star when she was a regular on The View.  She wasn't fired, as someone commented earlier.  She chose not to renew her contract.  Whether or not they were going to renew it, is moot. She didn't talk much more about her wedding than Sherry Shepherd did this past season on The View.  Geeze, at least we weren't "treated" to any stories how Star went commando on her wedding day.  Since Star lost weight she has changed.  I wanted to rip her face off on Celebrity Apprentice...arrogant, rude, just nasty.  As far her recent guest appearance on The View, I felt it was an ambush by Joy and Barbara Walters dredging up the past, Joy badgering her to tell the nation that she had gastric bypass...which is nobody's business but her own, Star's that is.  And the over-the-top insincere sugary yada, yada from Walters (anything to put herself in the spotlight) fawning over Star, was as phony as a two dollar bill.  Can't wait to read Star's book....I hope she pulls no punches.   And this is coming from a non-fan of Star Jones.  Just callin' The View's "invitation" what it was.  A bait & switch.

Star Jones is a big mouth that should've had her **** kicked when on the Apprentice...Can't stand her, a user, trouble maker, drama queen and full of herself....Too bad her 15 minutes of fame is flamed by blinded people in the tv business....

Don't "playa hate" on Star Jones...Star is a lovely, intelligent, graceful person and woman...Remember, time has passed...And the past is the past...

I wished she could have stood on The View...But the producers wanted to go in another direction...Well, that "new" direction didn't really work...

And that is now the past too...Thank GOD for Whoopi because she is just so right for the show...

But anyway folks,  why not wish well for all the people that have been on the show, including Rosie O'Donnell...

I say... Move on everyone...And to all, "Live Long & Prosper." GOD Bless... :)

Really, Star Jones???  You're the most UNprofessional woman I've ever seen.  You lack grace and poise, manners and you have a mean mouth.

this from a woman who used her position on The View to get freebees for her wedding that was against policy.  Talk about unprofessional.  And maybe Donny should realize that she was on the show for 9 years and was asked to leave when she started taking kickbacks.

The same arrogant attitude she had when she was a host on the View  is the same Arrogant attitude she had Walking out & sitting and talking with everyone....Starr Jones is so FAKE
Feb 29, 2012 6:13PM
I agree, her professionalism went with her lies..
Feb 29, 2012 5:26PM
Star Jones is a hateful, useless, arrogant "star".  I refuse to watch any show that she is on.  She was unprofessional on The View.  I am so glad that she left.  She said that her novel about a panel of talk show ladies, Satan Sisters, is not based on The View.  Riiiight.....
