Ex-host of 'The View', Star Jones, has finally admitted in a recent interview, that she did have gastric by-pass surgery to help her lose almost 200 pounds. She says that although she said she was trying to protect her privacy, she really was afraid of what the public would think of her. She attended therapy after the surgery and says that she now feels confident enough to admit that she did have the surgery to help her achieve a healthy weight and lifestyle. Another ex-host, Rosie O'Donnell, who has lambasted Star in the past for keeping her secret, has flatly turned down an offer of two million dollars from Donald Trump, to appear in the celebrity version of 'The Apprentice'. She said she wouldn't do it for $200 million. Frankly, I think Miss I-can-dish-it-out-but-can't-take-it is afraid of what the public would do to her if she agreed to appear on Donald's reality show.
