Star Jones appeared on “The Joy Behar Show” on Monday night to chat, for the first time since 2006, with her former ‘The View’ co-host, and you could see the tension in the air! Star was promoting her new novel “Satan’s Sisters,” which, appropriately, revolves around a daytime television talk show host. Wonder how much is fiction and how much comes from her real life?
While meant to be promoting her new novel, Star did discuss her exit from “The View,” and even hinted at the possibility of returning to the program… but only as a guest.
Star, who spent nine seasons on “The View” admitted that her last year on the show was torturous, “The first eight years were great, [but the last season was] miserable… It was probably the most emotionally destroying time.” When Joy claims that she left the show “angrily,” Star cuts in, saying she left “dramatically,” and she still maintains that she was fired from the show and that the network leaked information about her to the press.
Star clearly still harbors some resentment to Behar – watch her facial expressions – calling her out for not reaching out when she underwent open-heart surgery last year. “You didn’t call, you didn’t write” Jones said, to which Behar apologized, and claims she “didn’t know.” Sure, she didn’t.
Star claims that “elements” of Joy, and the other hosts, are in the novel, and judging by the way the two interacted throughout the interview, I’m not sure they’re the good elements! I’m definitely going to have to pick up a copy of “Satan’s Sisters” when it comes out.
