Littler Star Doesn't Twinkle in Big Return

8/20/2007 6:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

For a woman who made her name in TV by being sassy, Star Jones sure kept things somber in her hyped return to television.


Jones' eponymous Court TV series began with an awkwardly Hot Topics-esque roundtable called "The Wrap Sheet" and an interview with verbal diarrhea-ist Isaiah Washington, in which even Isaiah didn't quite muster the energy to answer Star's questions. Advertisers also got into the lack of rhythm of things, with long, languorous ads from Cholest-Off and ScalpMed chewing up time.

Star did take one chance -- in her cri de Star "Open Letter" segment -- to take a wee dig at former boss Barbara Walters. Star said that she kept her mouth shut, uncharacteristically, after her firing from "The View" because she didn't want to engage in an "undignified she says, she says." Giddy-up, Babwa!

There was conspicuously little mention of gastric bypass surgery, Rosie O'Donnell or fabuhubby Al Reynolds. Somewhere, Oprah isn't shaking in her Christian Louboutin boots.

Star was very arrogant even when she was heavy so I dont think losing wieght made any difference.
Dont you remember the never endign wedding planning and trying to get people to PAY her for the pleasure of offering her wedding services. She needed to get over herself.

She's gross ... and she's a total scam. Not an original bone in her body ...

She jumped the shark like 10 years ago ... and then she ate it!

That Scalpmed ad is soooo annoying. Much like Isiah Washington who just keeps
talking.
Anyone see the guests she wants? Teens who secrety have sex and 'hot topics like that. Sheesh...

I watched the show and she did a swell job. Original format for the show and it should work great. Watching court tv prior to her show with Jack Ford was a nice lead-in. You folks out there balleyhooing are just way to negative.!!! Lighten up and get your own life - Congratulations Star and all the best to you.

800 pound gorilla fart    

Never really did like her on TV . She comes off as high and mighty without much of any stance . What is " the view" anyways but A bunch of chicks acting like they are experts on something when they are not . I just tune in to check out Elizabeth as she may be too conservative for me but she is cute . And since I am not a liberal I used to hate some of Rosies' rant ... But I miss her as she stirred things up . Chances are Star has some viral infection as not digesting food also means not taking in needed nutriants . We all knew she had that operation and this " secret" coming out about her operation is a big farce . Would be more news if her husband " Came out" .
The whezzing is really distracting .

Is Mzz Star Jones slowly morphing into Spike Jones? I do believe that's the case. How very odd.

It's amazing how many folk don't have a forgiving heart. Let's just hope that they don't ever do anything wrong and have to look to the public to forgive them. Star we are so proud of you for being honest about your situation. However, whatever you did to loose weight was actually no one's business. To admit that you got cught up in Hollywood as seen in our daily paper is quite an admission. You are super intelligent, deserve a second chance and we all wish you well and we will be watching. We are also encouraging other to watch as well. God Bless

STAR JONES IS THE PHONIEST TV PERSON IVE EVER SEEN!!
USUALLY PERSONALITIES ARE LIKED BY THE PUBLIC CAUSE THEY'RE GOOD AT PRETENDING TO BE NICE, EVEN IF THEY'RE
NOT...SHE CANT EVEN PRETEND THAT WELL....
AND THAT "CRAP WOULDNT MELT IN MY MOUTH" VOICE IS ENOUGH TO MAKE ME PUKE...FAT OR THIN..SHE'S STILL THE HOMLIEST WOMAN ON T.V.!! HOW SHE GOT THIS FAR IS A TESTAMENT TO "PUSHY" AS A CAREER..AMAZING...AND GAY
AL WOULD CERTAINLY TUNE UP THE RATINGS...ISAIAH...HE SHOULD STOP NOW....WE'RE EMBARRASSED FOR YOU DUDE.

Hollywood's a Hazard    

Star is a VERY inteligent and capable woman. It seems though that she lost a little too much weight. Now her head looks too big for her body. This should be very easy (and fun)to correct. Still its a case of damned if you do and damned if you don't. I remember all the fat jokes.
