Star Jonesing After Oprah

12/20/2006 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Star Jones gallery: Click to launch photosStar Jones is admitting to the world what it already knew – that she's been a diva with a capital D – and it seems that she may be using her pal Oprah Winfrey to help her shed that image and get back on her professional feet.

Miss Jones told "EXTRA" that this New Year's, she's going with O and Gayle King to South Africa as Oprah visits the girls academies she built down there. Though the two aren't bosom pals like O & G, Oprah and Star have appeared on one another's shows, and Star could be looking to use some of the Queen of Daytime's reflected glory to land a new gig.

Meanwhile, Star says her only correspondence with her former colleagues at "The View," which she abruptly exited over the summer, was in the form of "sweet, wonderful" cards from Elisabeth. "I've gone on with my life," said Jones to 'EXTRA.'

Tara Conner gallery: Click to launch photosTara Keeps Tiara


Tara Conner got a last-minute reprieve from Donald Trump yesterday, but it might not be too long before the bad-girl beauty queen really gets the boot from the Donald.

At yesterday's press conference, Tara was a tear-streaked picture of contrition. But just a few hours later, in a phone interview with MSNBC, Tara already seemed to be pooh-poohing her boozing, saying, "I wouldn't say that I have a big drinking problem." What's more, as the New York Daily News points out, Tara verbally shrugged her shoulders at the treatment program the Miss Universe organization is providing her: "Anytime anyone gives you free anything, like therapy or rehab, you take it."

Still, no matter what her urges, Tara will find it difficult to cavort without getting caught. As one veteran paparazzo told TMZ, "That girl won't be able to hit the pavement [in New York] without cameras watching her every move."

Britney's having her man-cake and shoving it in her ex's face too. According to In Touch Weekly, Spears called the Fed-Ex to ask him if he'd seen pictures of her kissing music producer "J.R." Rotem and then bragged about a sexual escapade she'd just had. What's more, Britney, according to In Touch's sources, has been taunting Federline about his newly-reduced financial status. "It was really bad," says an eyewitness. "[Brit] just started pushing his buttons ... he started screaming at her."

Rapper Eminem and his high school sweetheart wife, Kim, divorced yesterday for the second time -- less than a year after they remarried. According to a judge, they "are a fine couple to deal with." They will share custody of their 10-year-old daughter ... Barbara Walters might be getting the last interview ever with Fidel Castro, if reports of his failing health are to believed. According to Jossip.com, Walters will meet with Castro alongside another rabidly anti-U.S. dictator type, Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez ... Rapper Nas wanted to call his latest album "N****r" because, he tells Rush & Molloy, "I don't care about sales" but had to rethink and called it "Hip Hop is Dead" instead ... Josh Hartnett and Scarlett Johansson, rumored to be on the outs, were spotted last weekend getting cozy at a Manhattan eatery, says Page Six.

It is wonderful how Britney is treating Fed X..that guy is just an opportunist, he needs to get a job, but Britney life is like this what goes around comes around...to be with a guy who just gets up and leaves a woman pregnant with his child(who at the moment he is not asking for custody for those kids (ironic)) without her even knowing that the relationship is over..Is just k=not the type of man I would date..however, I am so happy you learnt and he will suffer...probably Shar can take him back as she has all the best to say about him and she knows what to expect from him........

F*** Star Jones. How and why she is on television has to be one of the greatest unsolved mysteries ever.

Seriously    

Not defending Kfed in the least, but why would Brit want someone who
has 1 kid and 1 on the way and leaves his girlfriend that way?
I'm sorry, but that's just stupid. Did she really think "Gee, I want this guy
to be the father of my children"? Please. Get a clue Britney.
Now that you have two beautiful boys, xxxking take care of them.
Be a mom. You can have fun and still be a responsible parent.
Unfortunately, you haven't quite figured out how to do both.

Ours is a truly moronic society. Look at all the knuckle-draggers, mouthbreathers, and dullards we elevate to public stature. This includes the likes of movie stars, beauty queens, and, oh yes, a so-called president.

Britney rubbing Fedex's face into something?? LOL. That's EXACTLY what he deserves.

If he had half a brain he could have made a go of it with Brit, she' would have been an adoring and supportive wife. Fed is an a**hole.

Is it just me or does anyone else think that this Miss USA- Tara, looks MORE LIKE 31 or 41 rather than 21? That picture just put up by TMZ shows a much older woman. The lines, the expression, everything about that face screams, OLD!

Well, when you are a druggie and spend time partying and spreading your legs, for everyone at any time, plus giving The Donald a blow job to keep your crown, it does not age you well.

Hugo Chavez is a president. Just because he's a leftist and hates America doesn't mean he's a dictator type.

THERE IS SO MUCH MORE TO LIFE THAN ALL OF THIS WHO OUT DOES WHO AND WHO IS DIVORCING AND MARRYING AND REMARRYING AND BREAKING UP AND GOING BACK AND WHO IS WEARING WHO OR WHAT? WHAT REALLY IS THIS WORLD COMING TO??? THERE IS SO MUCH PRESSURE BEING PUT ON YOUNG PEOPLE BY ALL OF THESE SCANDALS. I WOULD LIKE FOR PEOPLE TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE VICTORIA SECRET CATALOGS.....THE MODELS ARE GETTING YOUNGER AND YOUNGER TO WHERE I SEE SOME EXPLOITING AND PORNOGRAPHIC ISSUES BEING OVERLOOKED BECAUSE SEX SELLS AND NO ONE IS REALLY LOOKING AT THE BIG PICTURE HERE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR WORLD. IT IS REALLY SAD. PEOPLE LIKE MADELAINE O'HARE WANT TO CHANGE ISSUES SUCH RELIGION, CHRISTMAS TREES, GOD BEING USED, SAYING MERRY CHRISTMAS, AND SO ON. WHERE ARE THESE WEIRDOS COMING FROM AND WHY ARE THEIR ISSUES EVEN BEING CONSIDERED AFTER ALL THESE YEARS. THE OLD TIMES WERE REALLY THE GREAT TIMES....TO MANY WEIRDOS IN THIS WORLD TODAY AND PLASTIC PEOPLE.......BEING PRESSURED TO LOOK LIKE BARBIE DOLLS AND MICHEAL JACKSON.........BACK TO BASICS I SAY........KEEPING LIFE SIMPLE IS THE BEST WAY TO LIVE.....AND KEEPING REAL......
