Star struck

Star Jones just couldn’t have been all that surprised to learn her contract wasn’t going to be renewed.

After all, her nemesis Rosie O’Donnell made no secret of the fact that she was only interested in joining “The View” if Star was bounced. In a classic move of “I quit” “You’re fired,” Star told viewers during the show on Tuesday that ABC wasn’t going to renew her contract. After being honest about her departure, ABC showed her the door.

Honestly, we’re no fan of the self-absorbed Star, but the whole thing was handled badly from the start. And say what you will about her, and you will, but Star’s antics helped put “The View” on the map.

Rosie won’t join “The View” until September.
