Star Jones -- I Was a Big, Fat Denier!

8/16/2007 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of the world's worst kept secrets -- that Star Jones had her stomach stapled to help her drop 160 lbs. -- is out there, but even under intense questioning from Diane Sawyer this morning, it's still unclear why she kept it.

The bebobbed Star blabbed on "Good Morning America" to Diane about her surgery, almost four years ago to the day. She admitted that in her newly svelte state she danced around the truth -- and still hot-footed around Diane's grilling about it today, not really 'splaining why she was so sheepish.

Now, says Star, whose Court TV show starts next month, she's "free," but still can't quite escape the (very large) shadow of her old self.

Just another despicable lawyer....dancing around the truth! Why did it take her this long to admit what everyone in their right mind knew to be true (not that it matters)!

Seriously, what's with her eyes? Is it some kind of affliction? Can't she get it fixed?

It's hard to believe that this is even the same woman.

It's also hard to believe that someone who ran her mouth off as much as she did on The View is all of a sudden silent on her 'weight loss'.

Just come clean, something like "I was tired of being a fat disgusting bitch and I wanted to do a drastic make-over. So I did what I thought was appropriate to achieve that result. Yes, that included gastric bypass. Yes, that included plastic surgery. Yes, that included pharmaceutical drugs."

But the fact that she just can't come clean makes her a very inauthentic celebrity that no one wants to watch because she is just a big fat joke in a much smaller body.

Hello!!!    

Seriously, who gives a flying poop why she w/held the truth. It's her life. Do you all explain your life choices to millions of people every day? Most people keep secrets from their own families and friends. She has her reasons, so why can't she leave it at that?

I think she HAD an opportunity to help a lot of people by being honest and talking about the surgery. She could have benefited from talking about it to help others undersand what you go thru mentally and physically by doing this surgery. Too bad.

Democrats are evil    

That's because even though she lost all that weight, she's still an ugly little democrat on the inside. (Only despicable people become lawyers.) Now she's not only ugly on the inside, she's looks hollow and empty on the outside now as well. That's why she was perfect for "The View".

Is it just me, or does she resemble Randy Jackson........married to a gay man.........I think this surgery is just one of many secrets she's carrying.

How bizarre. She sheds all that weight, but she is still ugly. I think it's her personality - too self absorbed. There is also the issue of her gay husband. What's up with that?

There is no LAW that states everybody has a right to know personal business of other people. Americans just think they have this right. It's no ones business what Star does in her life. It's an American trait to meddle in everyones business. It will be the downfall of this country. America better start taking care of itself and stop being so pushy.
