Star Slaps Back -- No, You Did NOT Pay Me!

11/6/2007 10:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: TMZ spoke to Star's manager who laid it out for us, on the record. According to her manager, this was a straightforward business agreement for Star to speak at the Health and Beauty Expo -- nothing more. The contract was breached, so Star did not appear. Had Star known she would be speaking for charity, her fee would have been substantially reduced or eliminated and she would have been there to speak.

Star Jones is giving the big girls she allegedly dissed in Detroit a big fat you-know-what, saying that they were the ones who breached the contract, not her. And yesterday, on her Court TV show, she called allegations that she bailed out of her appearance "a nasty shakedown."


In a lengthy dossier including her own blow-by-blow of what went down with Full and Fabulous, Star says that though she got $10,000 from the group before her scheduled performance, she never got $15K more that she was owed. What's more, Star claims that she didn't get "the level" hotel that she requested when she went to stay in Detroit, nor was any ground transportation provided.

Star says that she and husband Al Reynolds paid for their Super Bowl weekend "at our own expense" and that she's still never received any loot for the appearance.

ohpleeez    

What Star Jones did is completely legal, the group defaulted on the contract by not coming up with the full amount....that said, what Star doesn't get is these were teenage girls(fourteen and fifteen) who were probably fantasizing ,right up until the last minute, that this woman was going to realize how great these girls are, in their fantasy maybe she would show up and speak for only half the money, in their fantasy the girls would meet a "celebrity" that they could possibly glean some sort of life lesson........in their fantasy.......I'm sure you get my point , but I can guarantee you that Star Jones doesn't get it !!!!

So some fat cow who had her stomch stapled didn't speak to a bunch of fatties about self-esteem. Instead, she hung out with her homo husband. Is that about right?

actually, it's confusing to me why they even wanted her--she copped out on the battle of the bulge with surgery--anyone can do that! why would she possibly be an inspiration to anyone?

calling it like i see it    

She admits to getting ten thousand dollars? What did she think it was, a gift? Such a non celebrity trying to make herself more important than she is. She shouldn't be a role model to anyone, she had surgery to lose her weight, there is a big difference in excercising and dieting and being put to sleep and having your stomach made smaller. Please don't anyone use her as a spokeperson for women and children, she isn't someone to look up too.

she's a bitch and she took their money without doing what she was supposed to do. Now she's scared because her freeloading, trifiling ways are coming back to haunt her. Eat a hamburger Star and go home to your Down Low Husband and leave the rest of us the he(* alone!

Am i missing something here? It's not like weight watchers asked her to promo their new product... this was a group to HELP YOUNG GIRLS WHO FEEL LIKE THEY ARE FAT!!! shouldn't she be doing this for free? ... i'm sure Angelina asks for $30,000 from the orphan children in Africa that she helps...

Miss Mara    

Isn't weight loss supposed to enhance your looks? She looks like a bug-eyed freak. Please Star, you are of no importance. Go away.
