Anderson Cooper SLAMS Star Jones for Ratings Game Claim

by at . Comments

Anderson Cooper positively destroyed Star Jones during a taping of his talk show this week.

Sitting alongside Andy Cohen, the reporter addressed Jones' comments that Cooper only came out as gay in order to garner ratings for his program.

"I haven't thought about Star Jones in I don't know how long," Anderson begins, as seen below. "I was unaware she was even on TV..."

From there, Cooper - who simply sent an email to his friend while on assignment for 60 Minutes - logically explained why Star's assertion is utter nonsense.

"If I was wanting to boost ratings, I would have waited to announce it on 'A Very Special Episode' that would have been promo'd for weeks and weeks and there would have been commercials ... 'Anderson's Huge Announcement.'"

He then went after Jones and her history of personal PR announcements:

"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.

Cooper concludes that he invited Jones to appear on his show, but she declined.

"I would think she would want as much publicity as possible given her penchant for wanting publicity."

Game. Set. Match. Anderson Cooper.

Anderson Cooper coming out WAS DEFINITELY A PR MOVE!!! Most people already knew he was gay. Because TMZ had footage of him with a man - Cooper had to beat them to the punch in order to save face and ratings. Don't dismiss it because it came from Star Jones.


Star Jones is such a BULLY!!!!! Remember her awful-ass diva antics/behavior on The Celebrity Apprentice? Not only is Star a bully, but she also mows people down like a fucking lawnmower until she gets her own way. And, remember...when she was married, her now ex-husband publicly came out as OPENLY GAY. Star Jones=OBNOXIOUS CHEAP-ASS BITCH!!!!!


Oh please did we all forget star jones pathetic wedding she had. She would never shut her mouth on the show the view. She had everyone else pay for that wedding. I can't stand her arrogant self!!


Fagotz being fagotz. They're born that way, until they're not.
