The way that blogger.com works is that sometimes someone will post a comment on one of my older posts and I can't find which post they are commenting on. So I can't actually find the post this particular reader's comment relates to, but basically, someone wrote that we are all a bunch of dismissive, heartless, racist bitches after a post in which I slammed Star Bones, and many of you agreed with me via your comments. I wanted to repost the comment, but I mistakenly eraced it in it's email form and could not find it on the old post. The accusatory comment did strike a nerve. I'll admit that I'm dismissive and while I don't think I'm completely heartless, I like to "read" and can be negative while on my period. People expect queens to be catty and I'm usually happy to oblige. The queens and gay men who commented on my last Star post echoed or even one-upped my criticisms/dislike of Star.

But the racist thing touched a nerve. Maybe because, as Avenue Q says, "we're all a little bit racist" and this reader could sense my racism towards Star which I myself wasn't even aware of. The comment claimed that Star was only guilty of being "grand", and that was why my racism surfaced--I wanted to put her in her place. How dare a black woman act grand, etc. But dear reader, I still think you're wrong. It's not just that Star is grand, she's phony, fawning, foolish, dishonest and possibly a bit homophobic. I seldom watched The View, but I recall her mentioning that she liked men who are a little bit "street"--yet she ends up marrying a trophy husband who's rumored to be gay. And besides, I love grand black women! They are all my favorite entertainers: Patti Labelle, Diana Ross, Shirley Bassey, Grace Jones, Gladys Knight, etc. I just hunched over my laptop this morning watching a truly grand black gal, Diahann Carroll, on her segment on RuPaul's talk show. (Someone from myspace sent me the clip because Ru mentions me--I always said Ru resembled Miss Carroll. Watch the clip here: YOUTUBE ) I have no racist desire to bring Diahann down and put her in her place because she truly is grand, not to mention an inspiring beauty and talent. Not a wannabe with publicly played-out tacky issues like Star. I don't think too highly of Barbara Walters either, and understand that she's a real cunt for a boss who was already stinging from Meredith's departure from her show. So maybe Star was actually done wrong by The View's decision makers and in the end took the high road.

Hey, in Star's defense, I watched her on Larry King and to her credit she did not engage in any mud-slinging towards her former co-hosts or on The View or even at Rosie O'Donnell, who has harshly questioned Star's honesty about her remarkable weight loss. (I'm actually kind of intrigued by Rosie joining the cast--now that everyone knows she's a bitchy dyke, she has a lot less to lose and may be more fun than she was able to be on her own show.) But Star still tricked them and jumped the gun by making her retirement announcement days early, knowing full well that she had already done a People magazine shoot and article days before that. Disgustingly, Star claimed on CNN that she jumped the gun with the announcement only after conferring with her pastor. I wonder if she conferred with her pastor before deciding to pimp out her wedding, too. Not that clergymen woul ever choose a path of greed or anything.

But you know, while they may publicly seem to be taking the high road, Star, and Barbara, who though stunned at the announcement, thanked Star for making the show a success, were probably seething underneath their phony smiles. Show business is very competitive, and in terms of earnings, these gals are huge. So it's fun to see their fake comraderie unravel, says a negative, dismissive, but hopefully not racist, drag queen. And one question to the anonmous commenter: Were all The View fans who initially liked Star and then soured on her--probably because of her own actions--racists? Then why did they initially like her--wasn't she black when the show began?

Exactly. The only reason I never liked Star was because she was sanctimonious and homophobic. I hate Ann Cuntturd for the same reason, and it's nothing to do with race (although Ann's more of a circus clown). If you're in the public eye, you're going to attract attention, both positive and negative. Tough shit.

Star's a lawyer for God's sakes...she's smart enough to know how people's minds work. That she says and does the things she does, knowing what people will say, means that she is prepared for the criticism. She makes millions (enough to pay for her own goddamned wedding, by the way). I'm sure she'll survive.

And the accuser says you dislike Star because she's GRAND? She does commercials for Payless Shoes, for Chrissakes!

Personally I think the accusations of racism are a desperate, cheap ploy by people who are down to the last defense of their wobbly icon. We would dislike her for her attitude and tackiness just as much if she were white. Get ovah yahselves...

Gee, Bunny, maybe this person hates you because YOU'RE grand...:-)

if she is trying to be grand - she is failing at that. grand means CLASSY - race has nothing to do with it. she's just not a class act - professionally or personally as far as the public sees.

Star's a lawyer she knows how to spin the "truth" and she sure did a great job of that on CNN. This woman is shame-ful. She claims she was a professional doing her job... right.. Gurrl Pleazzze! She dissed Sandra Bernhard and Kathy Griffins on air! She was rude and a bad host! I am sure we will see more of Star schelping cheap shoes and fake gold plated jewelry on QVC.

And another thing this bitch reminds me of that FAT, octupus witch from The little Mermaid!

Bunny, well said! I was once on The View as a guest to showcase new beauty products. At the end of the show we had goodie bags for the audience. We were told to supply 132 bags. Well STARZILLA decided that she wanted not 1 not 2 not 3 but 4 bags for herself!! We ended up being 2 bags short and had to FedEx them the following day to two audience members address. Barbara was not to pleased but STARZILLA grabbed the bags and brought them into her dressing room. She was such a bitch.

I am so glad she is gone!

Exactly. Going to People magazine left Star no choice but to resign ahead of time. She claimed on Larry King that the tabloids were at her doorstep. Looks like it was the other way around! She was homophobic. Opposed gay marriage;
mentioned that she and Al went to a clothing optional resort ...that did not allow same sex couples. (?!) What did she expect to get...cooties? With her training as a lawyer she should have known how to handle the whole situation. But revenge? Uh-uh. It didn't work.
