Just to announce there’s a new feud alert in the celebrity world is not enough. Anderson Cooper simply freaked out at Star Jones when he was accused of coming out as gay just to boost ratings. The “View” host simply blasted Star Jones for his gay for ratings comment and this is one feud that’s going to get bad really fast.
In a talk to Bravo boss Andy Cohen on “Anderson Live”, Anderson Cooper blasted Star Jones for his recent comment that he came out of the closet just to boost ratings. When asked what felt different since he announced he was gay, Anderson Cooper recalled Star Jones’s comments.
“I will say, and I actually haven’t mentioned this, the only thing that did kind of annoy me, and actually it annoyed my mom, who brought it up to me, [was] Star Jones of all people” said Anderson Cooper.
“I haven’t thought about Star Jones in I don’t know how long. I was unaware he was even on TV still… but he apparently shows up on a morning show – the ‘Today’ show” Anderson Cooper blasted at Star Jones. “Out of the blue Star Jones… said this was a ratings ploy by me to boost ratings” “The View” host revealed.
“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 Cooper added.
Then Anderson Cooper’s feud with Star Jones got bad. Anderson Cooper said he recalls Star Jones “hawking her wedding every single day to get free products when she was on ‘The View’” and “lying about her gastric bypass surgery and making everybody else lie about it as well”.
Anderson Cooper also said that he invited Star Jones on his show to talk things over but she refused the offer. “I would think she would want as much publicity as possible given her penchant for wanting publicity” the host added.
