The Skinny On Star


Star Jones Reynolds Wrapped up her tour of duty on The View this week, when she surprised her fellow co-hosts (and boss Barbara Walters) by announcing on air that she would be leaving the show, supposedly one-upping the show's producers by making her statement earlier than expected. Upon hearing of Star's decision, Rosie O'Donnell - the show's new host this fall - was quoted as simply stating, "GOOOOOOOOAL!!!!!!"

Despite the current smokescreen that Star is blowing out of her hole by stating that she was convinced that "there was a plan put into place some time ago to get me off the show", the best bet was that Star couldn't handle the truth of facing Rosie one-on-one once the show entered its tenth season. Rosie was one of Star's most vocal critics after Jones-Reynolds lost a boatload of weight - obviously from a gastric bypass - and yet promoted the weight loss as a normal result of a healthy diet, lots of exercise, and vomiting 47 times daily. Obviously, Rosie wasn't the only one who didn't buy this. Star might have also been worried that Rosie might use her gaydar powers upon a backstage meet and greet with Star's hubby.

"Step Off, Bee-yotch!"

For those unfamiliar with the comings and goings of the morning gabfests, here's a quick recap of the recent round of musical chairs: Katie Couric left The Today Show in order to be the new news anchor on the CBS Nightly News. Meredith Viera, who was anchoring The View, was then hired to replace Katie. Shortly thereafter, Rosie O'Donnell, late of the Rosie O'Donnell Show, was then picked to replace Meredith on The View. On a side note, Dan Rather was shipped off to Canute, Oklahoma, just for the heck of it.

All this hoopla would barely make the back page of US Weekly, but Star obviously thinks she has Star Power, and apart from the Star War with Walters, she's shrewd enough to know that the publicity will obviously be good for her plans for a new career as a wedding planner.

The Real Reason For Star's Departure....
She Just Grossed Everybody Out!

Access Denied.....Suckers!

Save the Internet: Click here

Save the internet?!!! Okay, what are the hippy tree-huggers up to now? Well, truth be told, it's what the big telecom corporations are up to that's really freakin' me out, man. Just this past week, the House of Congress voted in favor of the big telecom corporations, which are doing their big money best to re-route the internet superhighway in their favor. Big-time tollbooths and roadblocks are currently under construction, which will prohibit you from surfing where you wanna surf, without the approval of the big guys like AT&T, Verizon and Comcast.

If they have their way, with the new legislation in the works, they can pretty much control where you click, giving favor to the sites that pony up the dough. You wanna go to Google? Well, maybe your ISP provider wants you to go to instead. So, they purposely either block, or slow down access to Google. Nice, huh!

Thanks to a grassroots operation known as Save The millions of decent law-abiding websurfers are banding together to fight back. If you love your internet access, and you cringe at the thought of being blacklisted from your favorite websites in favor of redirects to big corporation's favorite websites, then you owe it to yourself to take 5 or 10 minutes of your time to visit this site and learn more....and get involved!

Here's a quick video from their site:

Just think, if net neutrality was defeated, you might not even be allowed to go to their site. Come to think of it, you might even have been blocked from this site! And that REALY pisses me off!
