As the Star Jones saga continues, Access Hollywood uncovers who wants her job and what job Star already has lined up.
“Hi. I'm Star Jones. Join me for the views, the reviews and the real estate news in the Big Apple,” she said during her guest spot on HGTV's “House Hunters.”
And no, Star isn't taking a playful jab at her former “View” employers. She's just doing her job as the special weeklong guest host for HGTV's popular show.
Access was exclusively on the set as Star shot her segments for the show. Although it was weeks before the official ousting from the “View” happened, Star admitted to us she was on her own house hunt to sell her three-bedroom triplex apartment.
“I don't think people outside of New York realize that we still have neighborhoods here, that's one thing I love the most,” she told Access.
And while some insiders thought Star's own personal house hunting was a clear sign she was leaving the show, it turns out she just needed more space.
“We are starting to look for a new apartment. Something that's a little bit bigger and more conducive to a married couple,” Star explained. “My apartment initially was very much a single girl's lair with a dressing room and a closet that's the size of most boutiques. But now we are looking for more space —two bathrooms, one for each of us is a big deal, and a closet for him and a closet for me. So we've got some time to find what we really, really want.”
With or without a job, price was always an issue.
“There are only two price ranges in New York — expensive and unbelievably expensive. I'm trying to stay in just basically expensive category,” she laughed.
And back at “The View,” it will be the summer of auditions to fill Star's vacated seat. On Wednesday it was Brandy and Thursday, Susan Lucci will give it a shot.
