Barbara Walters Bad-Mouths Star to Oprah

Dude, Barbara Walters just plain sucks. So, we didn't cover the story about how Barbara Walters revealed recently that she had a torrid affair with a married U.S. senator back in the '70s, because I think it's appalling that she would put him and his family through that, thirty years later, just to sell her stupid memoir. But now it's time to bring it up, because, ladies and gentlemen, we have a catfight.

Babs went on Oprah recently and started talking smack about Star Jones and her weight loss. Said Barbara: “She decided to have a gastric bypass operation, but then she decided not to tell anybody. Then we had to lie on the set every day because she said it was portion control and Pilates. Well, we knew it wasn’t portion control and Pilates.”

This is so crappy of Barbara. I mean, I'm no Star Jones fan, but WTF is up with Barbara just throwing people under buses left and right to sell her damn book? It's classless, classless, classless.

Of course, Star had something to say about that. She tells Us Weekly: “It is a sad day when an icon like Barbara Walters, in the sunset of her life, is reduced to publicly branding herself as an adulterer, humiliating an innocent family with accounts of her illicit affair and speaking negatively against me all for the sake of selling a book. It speaks to her true character.”

And you know what? I agree with Star Jones! I never thought I'd say that!

Shut up, Barbara. You've accomplished so much in your lifetime. There are so many other, distinguished parts of your life to recall in interviews. Why are you pissing it all away by acting like a shameless, fame-whoring jackass now? Just stop, woman.
