Star Jones Reynolds says she will address speculation about her dramatic weight loss in a story for Glamour magazine.

“I wrote an article because I really wanted to go as in-depth as possible about the way I’ve changed physically over the last 10 years on the air,” Reynolds, 45, said recently while promoting her new Court TV (soon to be truTV) talk show. “And I thought that that would be the most effective way to answer everybody’s questions.”

Her article, “Getting Over Myself,” will be featured in the September issue, on newsstands Aug. 7, a representative for Glamour said Monday.

Reynolds, who has said she had medical intervention for her weight, said she has no qualms about viewing photos of when she was very heavy.

“I actually like seeing the old pictures because what it says to me is, ‘You never allow yourself to get there again,”’ she told reporters, according to AP Radio News. “It was dangerous to me. Very dangerous. I was killing myself.”

Reynolds, who married banker Al Reynolds in 2004, decided to use her maiden name as the title of her afternoon talk show, which premieres Aug. 20.

“Star Jones Reynolds makes dinner for her husband every night. She’s the wife. I’m the working woman,” she said.

Court TV has said Reynolds’ show will be about criminal justice issues that intersect with the pop culture world. It’s a return to her roots for Reynolds, a lawyer who began her TV career as a legal commentator on Court TV in 1991. She was an original co-host on ABC’s “The View,” starting in 1997, where she became acquainted with the glitz and glamour of show biz. She left the daytime talk show last year.

Reynolds says she would like to talk with Rosie O’Donnell, another former “View” co-host, who has criticized her for skirting the subject of rumored stomach surgery.

“I don’t have any reason to not want to sit down and chat with her,” Reynolds said. “She’s smart, she’s funny, she’s in your face — that’s the kind of guest you want on the show.”
