Star Jones: Yup, I'm a Bitch

by at . Comments

Okay, the staff at The Hollywood Gossip may have editorialized that headline a bit. But it's not so far from the truth.

Star Jones-Reynolds, who was asked to leave The View in June, is owning up to her reputation as a diva �" and tells Extra she's learning from her mistakes.

Far From a Star

"I've earned that diva image. It's not something that I can hide from," she said. "I admit sometimes I have enjoyed the celebrity more than I should have. It was well-earned, but it's softened now."

Among the annoyoing, self-cented stunts she pulled on The View, Reynolds shilled for free products for her wedding to Al Reynolds in November 2004. Rosie O'Donnell may hate Asians, but she certainly isn't a shill.

Indeed, she told People magazine in July that she "believed the hype" about herself.

"I was on a hit show, doing (ads for) Payless; I was getting my health together; I met Al. I started to think, 'Oooo, I got it going on!' Now I know: Everything I had was a gift."

Jones, who wrote the self-help memoir Shine: A Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Journey to Finding Love, says she is changing her ways.

"I am rejoicing in learning from my mistakes and missteps and trips and falls," she explains. "I've learned that sometimes modesty and humility shows the most strength and courage. That's the Star that you see right now."

Hey, Star, as long as you're speaking in the third person, you're the Star we've always seen. Perhaps you should speak to George Clooney and see whay humility actually sounds like.

I met her right while shopping on 5th and she was mean. She looked me up and down and frowned at me as I was walking down the street to go for lunch. I just kept smiling and ignored her slight. She is mean spirited.
