We see a cat fight in the works here…Star Jones stirred the pot back in July, calling out Anderson Cooper when he told America he was gay; she claimed he only came out to boost his shows ratings.
We’re a little confused why Anderson’s retaliated so late in the game but for what it’s worth, it was pretty fierce and funny to hear what he had to say.
“I haven’t thought about Star Jones in I don’t know how long. I was unaware she was even on TV, but she apparently shows up on a morning show,” Cooper said Thursday on his show…”It so annoyed me…. If I was wanting to boost ratings I would have waited to announce it on a very special episode,” he said, “that would have been promoed for weeks and weeks.”
But the silver fox didn’t stop there. After debunking Jones’ theory, Cooper took a walk down Star’s self-promotional memory lane.
“I seem to recall her hawking her wedding every single day to get free products when she was on ‘The View,’ ” Cooper said. “And I seem to recall her lying about her gastric-bypass surgery and making everybody else lie about it as well.”
As if we could barely contain our joy over this, Cooper delivered the final blow to Star’s ego with a sentiment from his mother, designer and socialite Gloria Vanderbilt. “My mom was like, ‘Who is Star Jones?’ ” Cooper recalled.
