Was Star Jones ambushed on The View yesterday?

Star Jones appeared on The View yesterday for the first time in 6 years. She left in 2006 when her contract was not renewed. She announced it prior to the agreed upon time and Barba walters was livid. Since that time Jones has had her own show on Court Television and she is now on the NBC Today Show. This morning she was defended by Donny Deutsch who said she was ambushed on The View yesterday, and he went on to say that Barbara Walters and Joy Behar acted like mean girls. My question is were Walters and Behar out of line talking about the past or would it have been weird not to discuss Star’s departure. Tell me what you think. http://todayentertainment.today.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/02/23/10486528-donny-deutsch-defends-star-jones-against-the-views-mean-girls

    I am not surprised about how she was treated.

    It’s The View.

    I do not understand why the hosts felt the need to treat her with less than civility.

    Consequently I rarely watch the show.

    Watching Barbara and Joy on their witch-hunt made me quite uncomfortable.

    It’s been six years ladies… Time to move on.

    Star barely  had time to sit her bottom down before they went for the jugular… And left me wondering what was  the real reason behind the invite.

    Slowly but surely BabaWawa is turning into a Grumpy Old Woman… And Joy is shadowing her quite closely.

    BW interrupts the other co-hosts at nauseum and taps her finger when she is getting agitated on a topic or what is being said.

    When her guests come on to talk about joyous things, she always seems to ‘bring it down a notch’ with some prickly topic… And is insistent on steering it in that direction.

    Last week the show had the guys from Desperate Housewives. At one point, BW said: With the show coming to an end, I am wondering if you are worried for future work? As many actors on hit shows know, you end up being typecast and experience difficulties finding roles. Does this worry you?

    One of the actors responded: Gee – thanks for that vote of confidence Barbara!

    I gotta admit, I am not surprised at their treatment of Star. They are vicious old women who need to seriously up their hormone treatment! But, I am very proud of Star. She handled their “questions” well and looked like the better person in the end.

    And we thought high school was bad…

    Years ago I thought Barbara had class and dignity…Have never seen dignity nor class from Joy…It’s as tho the old bags had to have the last word..It was totally offensive. Really, how long will some people wait to get even… Shouldn’t have been surprised. They both showed our war hero, John McCain, much less respect than Babs showed Castro…. I have so little respect left for Barbara that I do not watch the show anymore… I tuned in to see Star and , No, I am not black. Star showed much dignity and class. Way to go, Star. Proud of you.

    Star’s star quality came through, she maintained her dignity and took the high road. They double teamed her while the other three sat on their hands. I think it was a planned attack. Shame
