Anderson Cooper SLAMS Star Jones For Calling Coming Out A Ratings Ploy

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayCelebrity FeudsAnderson CooperStar Jones

Snap, snap! We're lovin' the sassier side of Anderson Cooper!

Not sure if you all recall, but Star Jones accused the journalist of coming out for the sake of ratings last July — and now he's FINALLY responding.

During Thursday's episode of Anderson Live, the host revealed (above) he was "annoyed" by the insensitive remarks made on national television and pointed out the absurdity of her allegation that he generated "information for ratings."

First of all, he wasn't on television when all of this went down — he was in Africa. Secondly, he "gave no interviews about it", "never talked about" and "wasn't even on the air for days afterward."

As he continued his completely justified rant, he calls out the former View host for repeatedly mentioning her wedding on the air "to get free products."

Damn! Did Star just get served?

We think so … and rightfully so!

    If Anderson isn't using his gayness for ratings why does he keep bringing it up?! And why respond to this 5 MONTHS after the fact!? He once said he only wants to be known as a journalist and not by whom he chooses to sleep with. What changed? I can tell you, BOTH his shows are failing and he NEEDS publicity to make people want to watch. Star is right in a sense!

    I love Anderson I think he's great but him calling out Star Jones is giving her attention he doesn't want give her yet he's giving her it. Anderson not calling her would help the whole not wanting to give her attention but I understand his reasoning.

    Re: Seriously – when has he brought it up?! like seriously. I'm always saying there's a perfect opportunity for him to bring it up but never does when i'm watching him.

    Anderson was completely right to call Star out. Who is she to say that he's only coming out for ratings?

    Star Jones is - and always has been - a bitter bag of black bitch and nothing more. She has a MASSIVE chip on her shoulders; it's kinda pathetic actually.

    Star Jones is a FAT SMELLY GROSS VULGAR FUGLY CREATURE, who got kicked off the View, because, among onther things, the rest of the ladies could not STAND her B.O. She married that Gay Guy….She is as FAKE as they come. Nobody likes her…you notice she has NO career ? Waste of (a lot of) skin !

    I like Anderson and I think Star is just jealous of him. Lord knows he doesnt need the money he is the son of a Vanderbilt.

    Anderson all class, Star……..all TRASH

  21. Yes a ratings ploy says – reply to this

    For him to bring this up months later instead of address it head on when Star said it reeks of a ratings ploy. He really needs to grow up.
