Did I ever think I’d be spending so much time blogging about THE VIEW? Certainly not. But the sad truth is, with rerun season in full swing, THE VIEW’S backstage catfights, antics, and PR stunts are the most exciting thing on and off TV.
It was inevitable, with the Queen of Nice [Rosie] returning to TV – the VIEW’s stage wasn’t big enough for the two of them. Thus, Star Jones announced the inevitable on today’s show, that she’s be leaving the gabfest she helped start nine seasons ago. Of course the story doesn’t end there. Apparently, Star feels she was fired from her gig. In fact, she told PEOPLE today “I feel like I was fired.”
Star’s interview with PEOPLE is the first in what will no doubt be an entertaining catfight played out in the media spotlight. Barbara Walters defended the show in an interview with the NEW YORK TIMES. “They had done a great deal of research, and her negatives were rising, Not so much because of what she did on the air. It was things she did off the air. The audience was losing trust in her. They didn’t believe some of the things she said.”
