Star Jones calls her former 'The View' co-hosts "hateful"
UPI News Service, 10/13/2008
U.S. television personality Star Jones says her former co-hosts on "The View" were "hateful."
Jones left the series in 2006 after her contract wasn't renewed. She was one of the chat show's original panelists, along with Barbara Walters, Joy Behar and Meredith Vieira. Vieira left the series shortly before Jones did and Elisabeth Hasselbeck rounded out the all-female cast as Jones departed.
"Those girls were hateful," People magazine quoted Jones as saying in the November issue of Essence magazine.
In the interview, Jones also confessed to "falling into a depression" after her eponymous Court TV show was canceled last year.
People said she is in talks to star in a non-scripted television program, but didn't offer details about what kind of show it is or where it would air.
