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

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!
