Soaps aren't the only programming in daytime scripting dramatic reunions! The View announced today that former co-host Star Jones is returning to the chatfest for a Feb. 22 visit. Jones—who was fired from the series in 2006—will be back at the coffee table with Babs and Co. to discuss the Go Red campaign for heart disease awareness.
Star Jones reunited with former The View co-host Joy Behar on Behar’s HLN show The Joy Behar Show Monday, April 4. During the visit, Jones promoted her new book Satan’s Sisters and the pair rehashed her exit from The View. When asked about happy moments on The View, Jones responded that “The first eight years were all happy,” but revealed that during the final year “It was miserable.”
Jones also pointed out that “Since the day I walked out of the show, you didn’t call, you didn’t write. They cracked my chest, you didn’t send a flower…” To which Behar responded, “I didn’t know that until today. I don’t where, I don’t know why I did not. I swear to you. You believe me? I do not lie. You know I do not lie." Jones agreed "No you don't."

DC EXCLUSIVE: Celebrity Apprentice's Star Jones on NeNe Leaks and How She and Rosie O'Donnell Squashed Their FeudBy Jillian Bowe on March 14, 2011
During our recent visit to Sirius XM Out Q's The Morning Jolt with Larry Flick, I got the chance to sit in on Flick and Keith Price's interview with Celebrity Apprentice diva Star Jones. The guys were also cool enough to let me toss a few questions at the barrister into the mix for Daytime Confidential.
On NeNe Leaks' slams in the press:
Daytime Confidential: NeNe [Leakes] has been going around in the press saying that you are jealous, or I should say "upset" that she went to school for 2 years and you went to school for 8 years and you both are on the "same level". Is that accurate?
Star Jones: No no no. We're not on the same level. Lets make that clear. We're on the same show. This is the thing that everyone needs to understand. I didn't cast the show, Mr Trump and Mark Burnett and NBC cast the show. They cast the show based on what they thought would generate good ratings. This was not a show about friendship. It was a show about whether or not people from different backgrounds, experiences and level of stardom could co-exist for a team and then turn it in for an individual competition. I was very clear on my role in this show. In all honesty, I would never compare myself to another African-American woman. I would never tear down another African-American woman in order to elevate myself. Cream rises to the top and water seeks its own level.
