Star Jones Looked Better Fat

Have you ever noticed that some people just look better with a little meat on their bones? They lose a bunch of weight and suddenly they look weird. I think Star Jones Reynolds is a good example. Hey, God bless her – she lost all that poundage and benefited her health, no doubt. I’m just saying that she looked better fat.

I’m sure she’s much happier. What will Kathy Griffin and Howard Stern have to joke about now? They can’t do fat jokes about Star anymore.

Actually, skinny or chubby, I find Star Jones to be very annoying. Fans of The View had to listen to her endless wedding plans for almost a year. When she finally did wed, people throughout the country sighed in unison. Then, they had to listen to the stories surrounding her honeymoon, her husband and the early days of marriage. On and on. Day after day. Talk about self-absorbed.

Ever since her dramatic weight loss, Star Jones Reynolds has refused to confirm or deny that she had gastric bypass surgery.

How did she do it? Everyone is wondering. Did she do Atkins? Slim Fast? Isagenix? Lean Cuisine? Jenny Craig? NutriSystems? Did she take diet pills? Drink a bunch of water? Eat nothing but pineapple? Grapefruit? Now Reynolds says she's written a story for Glamour magazine that will address speculation about her slimmed-down physique. Pretty soon, the entire world will know her secret.

"I wrote an article because I really wanted to go as in-depth as possible about the way I've changed physically over the last 10 years on the air," Reynolds, 45, said recently while promoting her new Court TV (soon to be truTV) talk show. "And I thought that that would be the most effective way to answer everybody's questions."Her article, "Getting Over Myself," will be featured in the September issue, on newsstands Aug. 7, a representative for Glamour said Monday.

Reynolds, who has said she lost more than 100 pounds through diet and exercise, said she has no qualms about viewing photos of when she was very heavy."I actually like seeing the old pictures because what it says to me is, `You never allow yourself to get there again,"' she told reporters, according to AP Radio News.


"It was dangerous to me. Very dangerous. I was killing myself with a pork chop.”Reynolds, who married banker Al Reynolds in 2004, decided to use her maiden name as the title of her afternoon talk show, which premieres Aug. 20. Her husband, numb and unable to speak, had no comment.


Court TV has said Reynolds' show will be about criminal justice issues that intersect with the pop culture world. It's a return to her roots for Reynolds, a lawyer who began her TV career as a legal commentator on Court TV in 1991. She was an original co-host on ABC's "The View," starting in 1997, where she became acquainted with the glitz and glamour of show biz. She left the daytime talk show last year.
