Seriously… two old broads fighting in public totally makes my life.
So Barbara Walters has written a memoir. Of course she went on Oprah to publicise it, revealing that she was a homewrecker in the 70s. She then proceeds in her book to sell out two ladies she used to work with: Star Jones and Rosie O’Donnell. About Star, Barbara called her out on her gastric bypass surgery, saying that at one point, Star was so morbidly obese that she could barely walk to the set on the View. She also said that after Star had her stomach stapled all the other women were forced to lie for her.
Needless to say, since Star doesn’t work for her anymore, Barbara doesn’t feel the need to uphold any sort of loyalty, or girl code for that matter, and has used her own memoirs to completely punish the insurgent.
Do you love it? But it gets better.
Star, upon hearing the comments, has now fired back, releasing a statement exclusively to Us Weekly pretty much forecasting Barbara Walters’s death:
“It is a sad day when an icon like Barbara Walters, in the sunset of her life, is reduced to publicly branding herself as an adulterer, humiliating an innocent family with accounts of her illicit affair and speaking negatively against me all for the sake of selling a book. It speaks to her true character.”
It’s the kind of dirty girl-on-girl smackdown we live for. At the end of the day though, even though it was poor form, Star does has a point.
Barbara Walters is selling a book. Her objective is to PROFIT from a book. And she’s trashing two other women in her way to the bank.
So why is this woman held up as a feminist icon???
You want to write memoirs that people really care about Barbara? Why don"t you spill all the secrets you know about Tom Cruise and John Travolta?
But you will note, Barbara Walters never says anything bad about boys.
