Star Jones and Rosie O’Donnell, from ‘The View’ are known for talking smack about each other but turns out, now they are friends. Jones, an original co-host was replaced by Rosie, after her fighting with Barbara Walters. Rosie stayed for a year and left after a little bit of fighting herself. She got into verbal fights with her co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck and others. Rosie had once even commented on her personal blog about her spending a lot by doing pilates, when it was clear that Jones had some surgery.
Rosie O’Donnell said it was nothing personal and that they were just two strong women. She also said that Jones got swept away in the insanity of fame. She also talked about having dinner with Jones in a week.
O’Donnell said, “I thought it was amazing to see her the other day on ‘Oprah.’ To see her evolve into the woman that she is. I was really proud of her and happy for her.” Rosie also admires Star’s honesty. “I know many people who had that gastric bypass surgery and nearly all of them had gained weight back. So she should feel very proud of herself. She did a drastic thing to save her health and her life and then to be able to follow through. Many, many people don’t have what it takes to do that. She seems to have gotten her act together and I’m happy for her.” Rosie seems to have taken a U- turn and become really gentle and kind.
