'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Should Star Jones be 'fired'?

Talk about controversy! Star Jones has certainly stirred the pot on “Celebrity Apprentice.”

She’s battled with “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes, and has even accused Lisa Rinna of badmouthing her! What gives?

Well, Star is going to be on our show tonight in a not-to-be missed "Showbiz Tonight" Newsmaker interview with Brooke Anderson. She'll open up about her relationship with Barbara Walters – and whether she’d ever go back on “The View.”

I also want to know what you think: Should Star Jones be fired on “Celebrity Apprentice”? Post your thoughts below.

Be sure to join me live at 5 p.m. ET on "Showbiz Tonight" and again at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN.

    Strong woman my ass, Star Jones is a kniving back stabbing self centered ass! Her kniving finally caught up with her. You reap what you soe. She hasbeen fired from more all of her jobs because she doesn't know when to shut up! Strong is not the word I would use for her either.

    Star Jones should be fired because of the way she pits people against one another and she uses her lawyer to manipulate the situation no matter how wrong she is, especially on 4/24/2011 she designed the ad she thought of the concept and she did everything to make it so that she looks like everyone but her messed up she should be fired.

    Star Jones makes people physically ILL, including myself. I stopped watching the View when she was on & turned off the Apprentice as well. As soon as she lets fired, I'll watch again. Not only should she be fired, but It would behoove the African-American community to exile her to a planet far far away. She is a waste of TV time to be sure. If I were a physical person, I'd beat the black right out of her...but I'm not, so I'll let someone else have at it! Any takers? I got cash! hehehe

    And, you were probably looking in the mirror talking to yourself when you wrote that statement. Seems like you can take some lessons from Star, too.

    No, I don't think Star Jones should be fired. Nor do I think she is rude. I think she is a strong, skillful, intelligent and classy woman (black or white) and those qualities are intimidating to a lot of people. I hope she wins! Nene on the other hand, is embarrassing. I guess money can't take the ghetto out of a hood rat.

    I like Star for being a Strong black woman, butthat has nothing to do with her on CA. Her personality stinks, i agree with Ella, Fire her ass off the show, she thinks she is a Diva. Doesn't even know how to get paint off her hands. Thanks to NeNe, tell her like it is!!!!! No damnsugar coating for the Diva Star Jones, get lost.

    KayKayKayalltheway. Too funny. Obviously too many did not understand the KKK reference to white bedsheets. Too funny. I think many viewers expect Star to verbalize like one of their ignorant neighbors. Come on, I saw where she was going with her planning. Too bad that mental skill isn't prevalent in the nation. People are clooking at her as a package and forget about the brainy ability.

    I really did not plan to get into this sort of dialogue, but ignorant people get on my very last nerve. Zip it up if you really don't have anything worthy of print. I'll sign off now because ther is a lot to talk about. How about Donald Trump's raciist "birther" rant about the President's birth place? He is alleging that the president is not acitizen of the U.S. and doesn't give any rationale for it.

    OH well.

    Watch a Pre-January 8th copy of Inception. Listen closely when the actors say imagine, reality, and safe, or point pistols. You'll hear the words, Loughner, offin' her, part of the word Giffords, and much more. Some say they hear, do it.

    She may be a strong black woman, but she is an obnoxious egocentric biotch that thinks her shiit dont stink. How does she fit that massive ego through a doorway? Can't stand the woman, never saw anything she was in until now. The Trumpster will let her go to the end, just for ratings.

      Black people play the race card when they have no other defense. She's stupid mean and ugly – regardless of how many face lifts (bad job) or tummy tucks or gay guys she marries for show! her skin color is no issue. But notice how she complains about all the white women!! So whos the racist now?

    The only way I'd hire Star Jones is if she can find me a freakin' hair stylist to fix my "tornado comb-over" so I don't continue to look like somebody gave me a "swirly"!

    Best not to repeat the same old stupid joke. Put some thought into it, man. Star Jones is such an easy target. Rude, loud and bossy is how some people approach being assertive. Not the best way to get in good with Donald.

    @The Yewgly Stick, Star Jones ran through my forrest and didn't miss a tree going in and coming out...ugly is skin deep, hers is to the bone(Yewgly). The only thing strong and real about Star Jones is the river bank fish smell from her body and breath.

      what are you talking about? What a stupid remark you made...If you are going after the person's actions then you can comment about that but to actually strip the person for no apparent reason except to bad mouth her for her looks is downright childish and quite immature...

    Maybe I'm off base here, as admittedly I've never seen the Apprentice or Celebrity Apprentice, but isn't that show about finding who would be best for a job or something? In which case, why would her being rude or, ugly be grounds for her being fired?

      No it is not about getting a job, its about raising money for charities, and haveing good business sense which Ms. Jones does have, people hate on her because she is a natural born leader (alot like the Donald) and knows how to use her knowledge to get what she wants, people who are less educated usually feel very intimadated by that especially from people of color!!

    big fan of apprentice and people need 2 beware because star jones is a force to be reckoned with she is a very strong woman and maybe the reason she might come off as pushy or overbearing is because she is a leader and knows how to work what she has to get what she wants she will b in the finals

    I like Star Jones. Most of the white people treat her bad on the show because she is a strong black woman. Nena is saying bad things about her because she is jelouse of her. Nene wish she can lose weight and look as good as Star.

      Star Jones is definitely not beautiful. In fact she was better looking before she lost the weight. Now she has a washed out, sunken look about the eyes. But then I've always heard, that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    i don't watch Celebrity Apprentice, so i really don't care if Trump fires her or not. BUT i did see an interview last night with Lisa Rinna, Nene Leakes and LaToya Jackson and they all called Star "bossy and manipulative". news flash for you Lisa, Nene and LaToya – Star is a license lawyer, so yeah, she's going to use all her lawyer manipulation skills to get what she wants!
