Star Jones isn't afraid to spill the beans.
The former View co-host first penned a book inspired by her dramatic tenure on the ABC daytime talk show for 2011 work of fiction called Satan's Sisters. Once again, she's revisiting her time working alongside Barbara Walters, Joy Behar and the rest of the team to bring the drama back to the small screen, this time as a scripted series for VH1.
