In a well-reasoned, intelligent, thoughtful statement this week, Anderson Cooper came out to the public this week as a happy, proud gay man.
And Star Jones believes he did so for the ratings.
Asked about Cooper's announcement by Natalie Morales of The Today Show this morning, the irritating former View co-host said "I'm a little bit of a cynic" and added of Cooper:
"He's a daytime talk show host and when the rating slip in daytime, the hosts tend to tell you lots of things about them."
Jones then went on to cite Oprah Winfrey and her admission in the 1990s that she was pregnant at 14, hooked on drugs and once considered suicide.
"There [are] times when you generate information for ratings," Jones said, seeming to allege that Winfrey concocted those stories and Cooper had a motive beyond mere honesty for his public reveal.
Seriously, could this woman suck any more if she tried?
