CNN’s Anderson Cooper, on his syndicated show today, ripped Star Jones after Jones said on the “Today” show that Cooper’s public coming out this summer was a ratings ploy.
A fired up Cooper, with guest host Bravo’s Andy Cohen said, “I haven’t thought about Star Jones in I don’t know how long. I was unaware she was on TV still.”
“As memory serves, in terms of boosting ratings, I seem to recall [Star] hocking her wedding every single day to get free products when she was on ‘The View’ and I seem to recall her lying about her gastric bypass surgery and making everybody else lie about it as well. So for her to suddenly emerge out of the shadows and suddenly attack me for this, I couldn’t believe it.”
