Walters also reveals that she had an affair with then-married Senator Edward Brooke during the 1970s. caught up with Jones (who recently split from husband Al Reynolds) as she left a tennis workout in NYC Wednesday. “It is a sad day when an icon like Barbara Walters, in the sunset of her life, is reduced to publicly branding herself as an adulterer, humiliating an innocent...

    Star Jones Reynolds conceded yesterday on the "Today" show that she "abused" her celebrity status when planning her over-the-top nuptials two years ago. Jones' 2004 wedding to Al Reynolds became a joke among TV-industry types as she blatantly squeezed wedding vendors to provide their services for free in exchange for promising to mention them on "The View" and in magazine articles about her. In the months leading up to the wedding, she even argued on air with her co-hosts about the guest list....At the wedding itself, she allegedly tried to take a camera from co-host Joy Behar because Jones had...

    Ousted cast member Star Jones Reynolds said Thursday she was told she could "make up a story" about why she was leaving "The View" and her colleagues would have gone along with it. The news that Reynolds wouldn't have her contract renewed for a 10th year on the daytime talk show exploded this week into a bitter war of words involving show creator Barbara Walters. Reynolds, appearing Thursday on CNN's "Larry King Live," said she'd been told in April that she wasn't coming back but kept it secret. She revealed it on Tuesday's show, taking Walters and ABC by surprise...

    by Mark Finkelstein June 30, 2006 Should we look for Matt Lauer to close his next interview of Condi Rice by clasping her hands? Perhaps a verklempt Dick Cheney thanking Campbell Brown for being with him "every step of the way"? Could be, judging by Al Roker's interview of Star Jones this morning. OK. Star isn't Secretary of State. She's someone who got bounced as co-host of a televised coffee klatsch. Even so, some of the journalistic values on display were eye-brow raising. For openers, what does it say about Today's news values that the interview, stretching across two half-hours...

    Star Jones - the only woman in history to have more sponsors for her wedding than a NASCAR race - overstayed her welcome on "The View" by at least two years...........she started acting like the fat girl who finally got a prom date. Star's fate was written when her body started to mysteriously shrink as her swag bag shamelessly grew. She honestly seemed to believe that her wedding to Jheri Curl Al was a national event! .... she dug the knife deeper - not only into Barbara, but possibly into her own future last night (on Larry King). .....Get Rosie...

    So the annoying, insane former tub o' lard, Star Jones has been fired from anti-male yenta-fest "The View," a/k/a "The Spew." One down, 3 more old biddies (and one younger annoying one who pretends to be a conservative but is just an inane airhead) to go. The best part about this whole thing is that we get to watch the forever annoying Baba Wawa (Barbra Walters to those not in the know) and Jones fighting about it all over the place, not to mention Walters openly lying about the whole thing (and getting caught with a million different stories). It's...

    by Mark Finkelstein June 28, 2006 As a veteran Couric watcher, I've recently come to follow [without actually watching] doings at The View, since Katie's replacement Meredith Vieira was for years a member of the show's cast. For those unfamiliar with it, The View is an all-female televised coffee klatsch and gabfest of which Barbara Walters is the creator, partial owner and a co-host. The View has a distinct liberal tint to its patter. And as we know, one of the tenets of feminist theology is that women have a right to whatever kind of body size they want, free...

    Star Jones Reynolds has been reportedly told that her services are no longer required. This should come as no real surprise as many speculated that she would be leaving once Rosie O'Donnell was signed to the show. The New York Post's Page Six has the details: 'ABC will announce this week that the big-boned talking head is out at "The View," a source close to the inner workings of the late-morning gabfest tells Page Six. What network brass won't say is that she's being unceremoniously ousted at the direct behest of the show's grand dame Barbara Walters and the incoming...

    Oprah: Daytime Talk’s Jihadi Sister May 25, 2005 By Debbie Schlussel Ann Coulter says Katie Couric is “the affable Ava Braun” of daytime TV. But Couric’s got nothing on Oprah Winfrey. **** Cheating husbands don’t get off as easy as Islamic terrorists, murderers, and torturers in Winfrey’s world. **** Last month, Oprah’s “O” asked readers to understand “The Heart of a Destroyer,” Mohammed Atta. You remember him—the Al-Qaeda ringleader of the 9/11 hijackers who murdered 3,000 Americans. But that’s not exactly the way “O”’s “reading room” wants you to remember him. Beneath a picture of young Mohammed and his smiling...

    Cows hold grudges, say scientists By Jonathan Leake February 28, 2005 ONCE they were a byword for mindless docility. But cows have a complex mental life in which they bear grudges, nurture friendships and become excited by intellectual challenges, researchers have found. Cows are capable of strong emotions such as pain, fear and even anxiety about the future. But if farmers provide the right conditions, they can also feel great happiness. The findings have emerged from studies of farm animals that have found similar traits in pigs, goats and chickens. They suggest such animals may be so emotionally similar to...

    Hosts of ABC's "The View" Gang Up on Giuliani for Backing Bush Joy Behar ridiculed Giuliani for claiming that the first thing he said after the 9/11 attacks was "thank God" George W. Bush "was our President" and she insisted that "of course" Al Gore would have been just as "tough" on terrorism. Former CBS News correspondent Meredith Vieira, who participated Sunday in an anti-Bush march, seemed similarly ignorant, scolding Giuliani: "The implication is that if you disagree, I think, with the administration that somehow you are on the side of the terrorists. " Giuliani shot back: "That isn't who...

That's the first thing you said? You didn't say 'Oh, expletive,' or something?" Rudy Giuliani: "No, no, that wasn't the first thing I said. That's one of the things that I said on September 11th to my police commissioner. It really came out because that was just a few months after that disputed election, and so I had called the...

    Radio talk show host Laura Ingraham received a hostile reaction last week from crew on ABC’s daytime show, The View, to the premise of her new book, Shut Up and Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics, and the UN are Subverting America. Other than Rachel Campos, one of three finalists auditioning to join the show permanently, the co-hosts were all appalled by Ingraham’s contention that elites on the coasts are out of touch with “the heartland.” When Ingraham argued “that the Democratic Party is not connecting with the people who are its logical constituents, from the South and from the...
