Star Jones-Reynolds on the Hunt

  • 6comments

Star Jones-Reynolds, who was unceremoniously booted from daytime talk show The View last month, will do a weeklong guest-host gig on the HGTV series House Hunters, according to People magazine. Jones-Reynolds will assist people trying to buy a home in the New York area.

Jones-Reynolds was abruptly fired from the daytime talk show on June 27. She announced her departure on the show, telling viewers she would be leaving in mid-July.

"I feel like this is the right time to tell you that the show is moving in another direction for its 10th season, and I will not be returning as cohost next year," she said.

The next day, Jones did not return to the show, and she told tabloids that the network and Barbara Walters had acted against her.

"I feel like I was fired," she told People at the time.

Jones-Reynolds told Larry King that she was "sad that the platform that I helped to build was used in a way to attack me professionally."

Last week, Jones-Reynolds' appearances on other talk shows raised their respective ratings. Her appearance on Larry King Live helped the show gain 3 million viewers, almost triple what that show averages, and an interview with Al Roker on NBC's Today Show was watched by 6 million.

Today, Jones-Reynolds removed phone numbers and addresses for Barbara Walters and the ABC television network from her Web site, which she had posted there urging her fans to protest. The New York Post reports that ABC has removed all traces of Jones-Reynolds memorabilia from the premises.

Jones-Reynolds begins her House patrol Monday, July 10.
