I don't watch "The View" and I can't even bring myself to watch this five-minute clip of Star Jones' "controversial" return to the show this week. But I've read the transcript-- and heard about it from Michael -- and don't have a problem with Barbara Walters and Joy Behar putting her on the spot about her shady behavior during her tenure on the show. That said -- and defending Star Jones isn't high on my list of things to do -- I'm still confused by Barbara's bitterness about Star's exit. Barbara didn't renew Star's contract, but then told Star she could say whatever she wanted about leaving, it would be their little secret. But when Star decided to blurt it on the show shortly thereafter -- remember the whole "after much prayer and counsel” bullshit? -- then Barbara didn't like it? To me it just sounds like Barbara is a control freak, and when Star tried to retain a little dignity -- the woman had been shitcanned, can you blame her? And Barbara TOLD her she could do it her way -- Barbara turned into a petty bitch. Am I missing something?
