Anderson Cooper RIPS Star Jones' Suggestion He Came Out as a "Ratings Ploy"!

Don't look for Anderson Cooper and Star Jones to go on a BFF vacation anytime soon.  The CNN anchor and daytime talk show host is steaming over remarks Jones made about his decison to come out as a gay man. During an appearance on a "Today's Professionals" segment Jones wondered if Cooper came out to boost ratings for Anderson. Jones remarked at the time:

I've been in daytime television for a long time. He's a daytime talk show host and when the ratings slip in daytime, the hosts tend to tell you lots of things about them.

Donny Deutsch on Star Jones' Return to The View: "They Ambushed Her Yesterday"


Not everyone believes The View has let bygones be bygones with Star Jones and her departure from the popular talk show. On The Today Show's "Today's Professionals" panel, where Jones is a regular, colleague Donny Deutsch brought up her appearance on the ABC chatfest and threw shade. Deutsch remarked,
They ambushed her yesterday. I've always been a big fan of Barbara's [Walters], I see her around town and I love her. It was cruel what her and Joy [Behar].. I felt like watching the mean girls in the seventh-grade cafeteria take on a vulnerable girl.
