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.

Star Jones IS grateful. She is also HONEST. In interviews on Larry King and elsewhere, Star was very positive in her portrayal of Barbara Walters. She thanked her for teaching her so much about television. And to Ms. Walters' credit, she didn't want to perhaps mar Star's chances of getting another gig by saying she was canned. But Star's honesty is admirable. She wanted to tell the truth AND remain in television. She's done BOTH. And her integrity is duly noted. I sometimes thought some of the other ladies like Joy Beyhar were envious of Star's status as a LAWYER. Joy, in particular, seemed to think SHE was a lawyer, too. She's NOT. That didn't keep her from too often strangely putting herself in an adversarial situation with Star, though. To the legally trained ear, Joy often sounded off in the head. But even she has been positive in congratulating Star on her new show. Thank goodness!

Regarding the adoption of a fouth child by Angelina and Brad, I think its wonderful and wish the peopl who criticize them for not adopting in America would just shut the heck up! We live in a global economy and all the good things (lucky breaks/opportunities) should not be reserved only for Americans. I also say "way to go" to Oprah for establishing the girls school in Africa. The poorest American lives better than a great percentage of the rest of the worlds people, especially children. Let's let these wonderful children have this great chance. Maybe one day they will grow up to be great citizens of the world and do good like their parents.

P.S. Why is anyone bothering to comment on Star Jones and The View, etc. when there are so many important things in the world to have an opinion about. Shut up and leave these people alone!!!

Hey Robert your'e right about one thing about the view it's not racial-----anymore since they finally got the races they wanted. Star Jones needs to forget about old wishy washy ass Barbara she is into ratings not friendships. Even Trump called her out as a liar so to me Star is in great company and Barb is looking like an old broad with a show she needs to keep a hit to stay off medicare. I don't have a problem with Angelina and Brad adopting kids from anywhere as long as they take care of them. And well I don't know off the top of my head who Joe Simpson is.

Kevin,
Sounds like you have an axe to grind. MANY black women and men have had elaborate weddings but did not find it necessary to cram it down out throats! It appears as if you are simply looking for an opportunity to sing your "poor black woman song." I could care less if Syar Jones was purple, I still would not be able to stomach her. This White Woman is not looking for a race war. Please educate yourself prior to accusing an entire race of people for disliking Star Jones because she is black. That accusation is quite ignorant.

Could everyone please get off Star's case?!!!? She never denied having medical help with her weight loss. Last time I checked surgery would fall under that category! As for the way the View let her go...they was just wrong. I haven't been able to handle more than a few minutes since Rosie come on. She is so loud and abrasive. Can't wait for her to leave!!!!

Heather Mills is a gold- digger, she has proved she married Paul only for his money. Americans do not feel sorry for this woman. She will probably let her leg come off during one of the dances, so people will feel sorry for her. The American people love Paul and feel sorry that he married this gold- digger. I hope she is voted off the first night.

When Star was on The View, I watched regularly. I never agreed with her, but that is what the show was about, different woman with different points of view. Now that Rosie is on the show I never watch, in fact I think they should rename the show Rosie's View, because she is the only one who has a chance to speak. She is very angry and domineering. Yes Star also tends to dominate conversations, but it has just gotten out of control with Rosie. I guess if ratings are up it was worth it for Barbara, but it was at a total loss of integrity for the show.
Yes, Star made the View about her wedding. However the term "Bridezilla" was around long before star, and I have no doubt that the viewers were interested. It is like when you are having a baby, that is all anyone wants to talk about. Same goes for weddings, especially with a mostly female audience.
As for Rosie, she should devote herself to humanitarian projects, I have no doubt that she is a great person. She should use her opinions and anger in a productive manner instead of dominating the TV airwaves for an hour a day. It seems that Barbara fell right into a self serving trap set by Rosie to voice her opinion....DAILY.

Why no picture of the new slender Star who looks FANTASTIC? Marriage certainly agrees with her. Love is the best "cosmetic!" Do the hosts of the "blog" here have their own biased, negative agenda where Star is concerned? EVERYONE has seen ( and gasped at) the gorgeous RECENT pictures of Star. It's downright STRANGE that we are shown older more unflattering photos of her. Who are you people? Really!

Star lost her voice a while back when it was accidentally removed during her liposuction treatments. She looks just awful. I think the doctor took the pails from the liposuction and added them to Rosie O'Donnel?

Star Jones is a publicity seaker. The woman has no talent and nothing intelligent to say. To Angelina, people who really want to do good don't do it just in front of the cameras like you. Be for real

When STAR was apart of the VIEW, it had a good mix and a balance of intelligent opinions, - 1 lazy humorist, 1 uninformed republican, 1 uninhibited jounalist and 1 vocal attorney, Now, Rosie and her children/lover/gays causes are the central focus each and everyday. Babwa should not show up at all . Since she and/or the producers wanted better ratings and booted STAR off the show, you might as well call it "An inconvenient gapfest with very substance". STAR showed them what is made up by moving on with dignity, courage and pride. Good luck STAR... Because you know what real friends are, and Babwa obviously does not !

There are people like these everywhere among us (just like ETs. Just look around you and you will find Stars, Rosies, and Heathers everywhere, hiding, sometimes by an artificial facade they use for the public. At least Jolie is trying to set an example of how much the same all races are, with her adoption idiosyncracy.

As far as the Star, Barbara, Rosie, etc. situation who the hell cares they are all money grubbing people that DO NOT know what hard work is for so little income. Tell all of them to get a real job.
Angelina Jolie sucks she needs to find children in the good old USA that also need good homes, but I guess the children here are not good enough or needy enough. Need I remind you Angelina of hurricane katrina. Tell her to find a single man also!!!
