But she’s a lawyer! She can’t lie. I mean, isn’t being on The View equal to being under oath? What is said on that stage is sacred. For Barbara Walters and ABC to ask a lawyer, yes Star Jones, to lie and save face, is unbelievable.
On last night’s edition of Larry King Live, Star Jones told Larry that she could make up a story about why she was leaving, and the her colleagues would go along with it. “They said you can make up a story,” Reynolds said. “The audience didn’t deserve for me to make up a story. That’s not fair.” This was only to save Star the embarrassment of letting the world know what the world knows already – the public is sick of her. Asked about how she felt about the whole ordeal:
“I wouldn’t be honest if I didn’t tell you I was hurt,” she said.
Asked to finally set the record straight on whether her recent 150-pound weight loss was partly due to surgery, she would only say, “Because of my health … I needed a full-scale medical intervention, and my doctors had to step in to save my life.”
The former lawyer-turned-TV-star said she would “work on my new television projects and roll my sleeves up and get right back into working on child advocacy.”
