Despite previous denials, Star Jones Reynolds announced this morning on The View that she’d be leaving the show in July after nine seasons.

“Something’s been on my heart for a little bit, and after much prayer and counsel I feel like this is the right time to tell you that the show is moving in another direction for its tenth season and I will not be returning as cohost next year.”

There were rumors she was going to leave because she was unhappy they were bringing Rosie O’Donnell onto the show, but Star tells People that isnt’ true. They actually told her her contract wouldn’t be renewed before it was leaked they had brought on Rosie, and Star says: “I feel like I was fired.” You know why you feel like you were fired? Because you were fired. I’ve never seen The View but I can already tell Star Jones was annoying. Besides, wasn’t she always trying to eat the guests and the furniture and anything else that entered her “chomp zone”?
