The Continuing Saga of Star Jones

Yesterday’s post about Star Jones joining WFME sure ruffled a lot of feathers, especially those of my regular readers.

Other people that had never come to this site in the first place left disparaging comments about Star and it started to make me question my choice in asking her to join us here at WMFE in August. But then I realized that I was letting the gossip and the press and the chaos get to me. I decided a perfect solution would be to get Star to potentially write a blog entry about why she made the choice so everyone could see how her intentions were good.

I didn’t get her to do that, but she said it would be OK for me to post the phone call I had with her this morning about this whole chaotic scenario. You can listen to our phone call here.

Star Jones Will Be Joining WFME

You may or may not have read today’s New York Times article about Star Jones leaving ABC’s The View.

For those who don’t know, ABC’s The View is a daily morning talk show that was founded by Barbara Walters and has waltzed its way into America’s heart over the last few years. Star Jones, one of the few standouts of the program, has brought levity and humor to the show for years and has been given nothing back in return (except for lots of money and fame). And this week, that tradition of “getting nothing back” continued when ABC announced they were not going to renew her contract this Fall.

But there’s always a silver lining to life’s biggest disappointments.
