Star Jones-Reynolds Takes Weight Off Her Conscience

If you've been thinking Star Jones-Reynolds lost all that weight through surgery, you are so right. She's finally admitting what so many people were probably thinking.

In an article she wrote for Glamour magazine, Jones-Reynolds says her dramatic weight-loss was due to gastric-bypass surgery, and that she dodged questions about it for years because she was "scared of what people might think of me".

Jones-Reynolds says she was "intentionally evasive" when people asked how she'd dropped 160 pounds in three years. She says she "was afraid to be vulnerable and ashamed at not being able to get myself under control without this procedure".

Jones-Reynolds weighed 307 pounds at her heaviest and says her "out-of-control behavior" began around her 40th birthday in 2002. Feeling lonely, she turned to food for comfort and gained 75 pounds in 17 months.

She had the procedure in August 2003.

Meanwhile, Barbara Walters says she'll announce this week who'll be replacing Rosie O'Donnell and Star Jones on "The View".

It's been reported that Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd will be joining the show in the new season.
