Star Jones -- The Plot Thickens!

11/2/2007 5:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The founder of Full and Fabulous says Star Jones stiffed her organization and partied on their dime -- and TMZ has the documents that seem to prove her point!

According to Sharon Dumas Pugh, Full and Fabulous hired Star to speak at their function during the Super Bowl. She says that for nearly ten months they sold dinners, did car washes and even found sponsors to help raise the cash to bring Star to Motor City. We're told they also sold tickets for the event, but when Star was a no-show, they had to return ticket money. As first reported by Steve Wilson of WXYZ, Sharon says they gave Star a $10,000 deposit, and sent her an additional $6,000 -- which Sharon told us Star claims she never received. TMZ has obtained several emails and letters that show the back and forth between Sharon and Power Performers, who brokered the deal. Oh no they didn't!

They also purchased first class airline tickets from NY to Detroit for Star and her husband, Al. Sharon was thrilled when she scored a great deal on the tickets, only to be disappointed when Star or her representative, apparentlyStar Jones upset with flight times, changed the tickets without Sharon's consent -- and charged an additional $900 on her credit card! Sharon says Star then reneged on the whole deal and used those tickets to promote her book (check out the picture!), party it up during the Super Bowl, and not show up at her event.

Sharon has won a $20,000 default judgment against Star, but hasn't been able to collect because they can't afford an attorney. Now we've learned Full & Fabulous is throwing a bowling party to help raise funds to hire a lawyer so they can recoup the money they say they're owed.

TMZ obtained the contract for the event between Star Jones and Power Performers that ndicates if the "event purchaser" fails to pay the $25,000 appearance fee, Star is under no obligation to proceed with the appearance and she can retain any amounts paid to her or on her behalf -- such as plane tickets. The contract also indicates a $10,000 deposit was to be paid by August. We're told that payment wasn't made until January.

Star Jones is evidently a CROOK and I hope she gets PROSECUTED to the enth degree over her lying, criminal behavior. She did the same underhanded things at the View and that is why she was fired.

Why would Court TV allow her to have a program? I hope it gets taken off the air immediately!

She is a lying hypocritical criminal and I hope she gets sent to PRISON for her DIRTY DEEDS if at all possible. If the "N" word fits anyone, it is Star Jones and her "husband."

These lawsuit stories never make any sense to me. I usually think both sides make
things up. If they sent her $6,000 it doesn't matter whether Star said she received it or
not, WHERE'S THE CANCELLED CHECK????? It takes about 10 minutes to get that
information, you don't need a lawyer.

See what I mean?

I can't stand Star Jones, but the emails pretty clearly state that Full & Fabulous never paid the balance of their agreement. It sucks that what they did pay was forfeited, but it appears that they are the ones who broke the contract.

Real Deal    

It is ridiculous that she was getting paid that kind of money for a charity event. I can see them picking up the travel expenses but $20K on top???
Who is Star Jones anyway??? A self-promoting, self absorbed no good free loader.

Shame on her…

see money can't buy her class. But than just as she did w/ her wedding, she'd have SPONSORS PAY FOR IT. TOO BAD Star at one time in your life you had smarts & class, and now you are shamed in front of a group of people who reached out to you. Enjoy the lonely road ahead of you, you lieing sack of crap!

That is pathetic. You would think, with all her talk of "empowerment" and being proud of your body (before she got surgery to change it), she could have helped these ladies out. I mean, come on- these are working women who were spending their free time fund raising through car washes or whatever to get their "hero" to talk to them. If Star had any class, she would have fulfilled her obligations. Instead, she uses their money for her own gains- pathetic. Even more so, considering what she makes in a year.

And really, since when is Star Jones worth $30,000?

What a loser.
