After her bitter exit nearly six years ago, Star Jones will once again be joining the ladies of “The View.”
Despite her public feud with show creator Barbara Walters after her June 2006 departure, Jones will return to the show, sitting down to promote her work with the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” public information campaign to raise awareness about heart disease among women, reports the Associated Press.
Both Jones and Walters, 82, underwent open heart surgery to repair faulty heart vales in 2010.
Back in 2006, ABC chose not to renew Jones hosting contract. She retaliated by preemptively announcing on a June 27 show that she’d be leaving immediately, surprising Walters.
Walters later claimed that Jones asked her co-hosts to lie on-air about her gastric bypass surgery.
