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.

If they couldn't come up with the rest of the money. The DECENT thing to do was to give them the money back. Most reasonable and unselfish people would have done so. But this is so Star Jones. She takes advantage but this is a new low.

Her fat was just a reflection of her ugly personality. She has mangaged to cut-away the fat, but her hideous personality will always be.

BIG, FUGLY, NASTY, SWEATY-ARMPIT, CHEESE-EATIN' SKANK. There's no doubt Al is light in the loafers- how else could he stomach that cow? She can loose all the weight she wants and she'll still be as repulsive.

gotta say it would have been a lot less expensive for her to have paid them back right away--now she has to pay for damage control!

some time ago when i heard she was going back to court tv i emailed them. pretty much i wanted to know what on earth they were thinking and to tell them i'd never, ever watch.

I think that is the most digusting thing I have ever heard. Star Jones should be ashamed of herself. I will NEVER watch her show again. What a cheater.

Star Jones is a fake and a liar! As with her much talked about and sponsored wedding this woman is wanting others to pay her way. At one point she was a smart intellegent lawyer, not she is just a lying pig. I cant stand her. Her marriage is also a shame cause there is not way you cant notice that your husband is a gay man!!

To #7...I am soooooooooo through with nimble brained morons who are cruel and hurtful to others merely to bolster their own pathetic twisted egos. This country does not need people like you #7...Your "N" reference is not the principle our nation was founded on. Please folks, stand up and out when people talk this way...don't let them get away with this behavior without telling them their actions are unacceptable. Whites need to start stepping up to the plate and speaking out against these people. We ALL should be totally and completely outraged by the recent rash of nooses. Our fellow Americans are being terrorized in the cruelest of ways...how can we sit by silently and act as if it's not happening?!? This is not a "black" problem...it is an AMERICAN problem. Please don't let ignorance perpetuate itself!
