Al Reynolds’ dismissed purse watcher Star Jones is set to turn her book Satan’s Sisters into a made for television movie for VH1. The novel published by Simon & Schuster (which the former ‘The View’ co-host insist is not an expose instead but inspired by her career) follows five bitchy bitches who host a daytime talk show, with one of them penning a tell-all. Sources close to the project say Jones and Suzanne de Passe with executive-produce the project.
Fred Hammond would make a lovely choice for the lead character. Just going ahead and speaking that into the universe now.
In news related to Jones, six years after her dramatic cunt departure she returned to The View today to raise awareness about women’s cardiac health and share details about her gastric bypass surgery from 2003.
“It was ugly. Everything around was ugly,” said Jones, regarding the June 2006 bombshell that she would not be returning to the program. “It was a bad emotional time. Nasty things were being said in the media . . . I made the decision that I wanted to go out on my own terms so that when I walked back in here, if I were ever invited, I would feel good about coming in.”
