Star Jones Booted from "The View"

star.jpgWell, it looks like Star Jones Reynolds got quite a goodbye. One day after announcing on-air that she wouldn't be back this fall, MSNBC says that she received a "don't-let-the-door-hit-you-in-the-ass" styled sendoff. Not quite a Meredith Vieira moment now, was it?

Shortly after the announcement went live yesterday, People magazine ran a story where Reynolds said that her contract was not renewed and she was basically fired. She must not have known that she shouldn't mess with Barbara Walters.

Citing an uncomfortable, unplanned moment, Walters announced that Reynolds would no longer continue on the program. Today, Star's name was wiped clean from the credits, as well as everyone's minds.

"We gave her time to look for another job and hoped that she would announce it on this program and leave with dignity," Walters said. "But Star made another choice." I only wish the cameras were running behind the scenes. That's Emmy gold!

Supposedly Walters said that Reynolds may appear in recorded segments in the future. Something tells me that they are going to make other plans. -- Rachel Cericola

re, star jones exit
the wedding.. the weight loss, the fluff of a book.. i think they took there toll. she was okay at first, now she is just too full of herself.. she and elizabeth are just too much.. rosie should be a refreshing change.. i will miss meredith and thank god, they still have joy.

And so the "View" goes into its 10th-and last-year without the only normal-seeming co-host. And without someone to say "hootchie" and "loddy doddy and everybody". Anyone who's still watching now will certainly leave when the former "Queen of Nice" arrives this fall. I may watch the first week to see if she slaps Elisabeth.
