FishbowlNY’s Diane Clehane was joined by Star Jones for her weekly lunch at Michael’s yesterday. The former “The View” host — who Clehane reports is “more determined than ever to forge her own path” — reveals a few details about a new television project she’s involved with:
“I don’t think the single-host format will be successful any longer. The time for those shows has passed,” [Jones] said. “I think people want to tune in and see a group of people with some real diversity and that are relatable.” Does that mean Star has a new talk show in the pipeline? Yup. “I can’t say much, but I can tell you exclusively I shot the pilot on Sunday and it’s multi-host – the opportunity came to me when I was in the middle of a million things — and I’m more excited about this than I’ve been in long time. It’s right in my wheel house.”
Much more with Jones — including a description of her birthday gift for Barbara Walters — over at FishbowlNY.
