Star Gives Babwa Silent Treatment

3/16/2007 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Star Jones Star Jones says she's over "The View" – and that she hasn't uttered a word to her old boss Barbara Walters since she got booted from the morning gabfest last summer.

Jones tells TV Guide that she hasn't spoken to anyone at "The View" since her bitch-errific departure, though she does have email correspondence with Elisabeth Hasselbeck because, Star says, they "had a very personal relationship." Still, Star won't spill the beans on what Thin Lizzie talks to her about (job openings?) because she's "extremely discreet."

Still, Jones says that she still keeps up with the show itself, because it's "very difficult not to keep up with it if you read newspapers or magazines or do any work on the Internet." Jones claims that she's Flabulous Gallery: click to launch galleryhappy for Rosie & Co., even though ratings skyrocketed on the show pretty much exactly when Star bolted. Meanwhile, TMZ caught up with Star giving someone else an icy-cold reception yesterday in Manhattan.










Angelina's Hot Passport


Angelina Jolie passport photoAngelina Jolie may have gotten a faceful of tears from her newly adopted son Pax, but Angie's own passport picture will brighten just about anybody's day. The picture was part of Jolie's adoption application, and smokin' hot is putting it lightly.

Meanwhile, Jolie went yesterday to pick up the newly-named three-year-old Pax Thien, but he started crying during their first encounter, perhaps because, as Nguyen Van Trung tells People, he didn't even know he was being adopted! "We just told him that we are taking himAngelina Gallery: Click to launch photos out," says Trung. "You are going to play outside – play with a mother and father." After the initial jitters, however, all went well. Pax – described as "very cheerful and happy" played nice with new big bro Maddox.











Heather Mills Cries Wolf on UK 911


Temper, Temper gallery: Click to launch photosHeather Mills has been overusing the British equivalent of 911, and the police have had just about enough of her bleating. The monopod and soon-to-be-ex-McCartney Mills dials 999 (emergency in the UK) so much to kvetch about the paparazzi, that a Sussex police superintendent complained to reporters, as reported by Page Six, "Clearly, people who make lots of calls to the police run the risk of being treated as the little boy who cried wolf." According to Mills' rep, the dancer-to-be hasn't annoyed the cops and she's simply protecting herself from the paps.


Party Favors: Jay-Z NOT Drinking Cristal ... Joe Simpson Getting Forgetful ... Spielberg Gets into Comedy


Jay ZJay-Z says that even though a bottle of Cristal was brought to his table at a Manhattan club the other night, he most certainly did not drink any of the bubbly, which he famously boycotted last year. ... Joe Simpson, say Rush & Molloy, forgot his BlackBerry after lunch at the Brooklyn Diner in New York. A Diner minion ran after Pa Simpson, but to no avail. ... Steven Spielberg has his sights set on TV comedy on a new series called "The United States of Tara," about an ordinary seeming woman with two kids who happens to suffer from multiple personality disorder. The show, reports Variety, may land at Showtime.

# 10... ( not that I am defending RO here...) Star never picked fights or anything with anyone else because that would mean she would have to admit that they exisited. She is so self absorbed doesn't have the time or the interest to pick on anyone else...

No wonder he cried ! I don't understand why the orphanage didn't tell the latest Jolie adoptee that he was being adopted and going to a new home. And since the boy is Vietnamese, he won't understand English explanations.

It's like a kidnapping. Jolie adopted two infants in the past ... Sang is not an infant and needed explanations and honesty from his caretakers. He shouldn't have been robbed of his name, either.

On Angelina Jolie:
Who really cares if she got special treatment or not. I am unable to have children of my own, and would love to adopt one of those kids in another country. She has saved those kids from a horrible life of poverty and given them a life full of opportunity!!! I hope she adopts more, her and Madonna both!!!

For all of those who are to busy perhaps to gather the correct information:
The adoption agency that Angelina used issued the following response to clear up rumors regarding Pax’s adoption.

“In applying to adopt 3-yr-old Pax Thien, Ms. Jolie followed the same course as all prospective adoptive parents who apply to our Vietnam program. Throughout her adoption process, which began in the summer of 2006, she has received no preferential treatment from the Vietnamese government or Adoptions From The Heart, and contrary to earlier reports, her application was not fast tracked.

Despite rumors that she chose her child, Ms. Jolie received a referral, just like any other parent adopting from Vietnam. In late 2006, she was referred a child who had been legally determined to be available for adoption and who fit within the parameters for which she had been approved to adopt. She accepted the first and only referral given to her.

In addition, we can confirm the statement given by Nguyen Van Trung, Director of Tam Binh Orphanage, that Ms. Jolie has neither made, nor promised to make, any financial contributions to his orphanage. Adoptions From The Heart celebrates the miracle of adoption with the Jolie-Pitt family, as we do with all of our clients, and wish them much joy.”

– Heidi Gonzalez, Vietnam Adoption Coordinator for Adoptions From The Heart

Ever since that louse Star Jones left The View is when is started watching it again, she thinks she's some sort of diva or someone of any relivance, I can't stand her. But the only one right now who doesn't seem to be very educated on today's issue's is Elizabeth hassleback, so to know that her and Jones are friends is no surprise, there both dumb twits!

as far as Star goes, she was a Diva (which made me dislike her), but maybe Barbara knew that Star would be the one to keep Rosie in check....

Star - I am so proud of you. Sorry you got treated so shabbily but there must be many valuable lessons in that experience. I'm hoping you make a real comeback and find people who like/accept you and treat you well. You did nothing to deserve the wrath of those on The View. I do not care how your weight was lost - you look 'dy-no-mite', woman!!!!! Best to you and Al.

Star was much prettier, facially, when she was a tad heavier. She looks too drawn and her eyes bug out. As Oprah learned after her first major weight loss fiasco, not everyone was meant to be a size 4-6 and you can be large and beautiful. Star was booted because of her dishonesty about how she lost her weight. She also lost her creds.

I am white and on Star's side. I can't stand listening to Rosie and her ranting and raving She does not like herself at all. That's why she is lashing out all of the time about everything and everybody who does not think the way she does. She really needs psychiatric help.
