Star Jones Reynolds called into ABC's "The View" Monday and denied reports she nearly died while undergoing a breast lift in Los Angeles.
Jones Reynolds, 44, said the elective surgery was made necessary after she lost 150 pounds.
"And do you know how hard it is to explain to your 87-year-old grandmother what a breast lift is?" she asked her "View" co-hosts, Meredith Vieira, Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck.
"I did not almost die," she said, adding there was a complication that required a blood transfusion but "literally, I was fine right afterwards."
"You guys know I'm anemic," she said. We've talk about it on the show. I did need blood, (and) I was prepared."
Jones is out of the hospital and plans on returning to the show next week.
