Nine years we've put up with Star Jones on "The View". Now that Elizabeth Hasselbeck has assumed the role of The Annoying One, Star and her fat salary are expendable. Barbara Walters tells everyone who will listen that ABC did not renew Jones-Reynolds' contract at the begining of this year. However, that contradicts what Walters said just two months ago: "Rosie will be there. And if Star wants to continue to be there, she is welcome."
Yesterday Star called Seacrest and revealed that she wasn't fired personally: the network called her agent and the agent delivered the bad news.

That's the only reasoning we can think explains why track one of her official site's "radio" is an instrumental version of her new single. Just what we were waiting for, the new song by Hulk's daughter, minus her singing.
