At least Star Jones didn't simply starve herself



Tbdstarjones080107 Don’t believe Star Jones Reynolds when she says diet and exercise were the key to losing some 160 lbs. over the last three years. The Court TV host finally admits in the September issue of Glamour that she had gastric bypass surgery to drop the weight (explaining that “medical intervention” line she trotted out all the time).

Why the wait in telling the truth?  “First, I didn’t know if the surgery would work,” she writes. “I had spent my entire adult life telling everyone that I was fine with the way I looked. I never thought I’d have to explain it. But the complete truth is, I was scared of what people might think of me.”

Don’t worry, Star, we were annoyed with your shrillness even when you were large and in charge on The View.
