Star Jones Thinks Anderson Cooper Came Out for Ratings
STAR JONES made a fool of herself yesterday on the "Today" show, during a discussion about ANDERSON COOPER coming out of the closet. She basically said he did it for the RATINGS.
She said, "He's a daytime talk show host and when the ratings slip in daytime, the hosts tend to tell you lots of things about them. I remember Oprah said she smoked crack, Oprah said she was pregnant at 14 and considered suicide. There [are] times that you generate information for ratings."
Then she quickly added, "Whoa! I'm sorry that I said that! I say bravo for him." (Here's video. Skip forward to the 3:30 mark.)
