Star Jones, also one of the original members of the show, departed soon after Vieira. A former attorney, she worked for Court TV and "Inside Edition" as a legal analyst and even presided over her own court show, "Jones & Jury," before joining "The View."
In June 2006, after nine seasons, she announced that she was leaving the show -- and that the decision was not her own.
"What you don't know is that my contract was not renewed for the 10th season," she said. "I feel like I was fired."
The next day Barbara Walters admitted that she felt "blindsided" by Jones's announcement and said, effective immediately, Jones would no longer appear on "The View." The feud escalated when Walters revealed that Jones had asked her fellow co-hosts not to discuss her gastric bypass surgery.
By February 2012, Jones had made amends with her former co-hosts when she returned to "The View" for the first time. Walters told her, "We really are happy that you're back."
Since "The View," Jones has filled in as a talk host, served as a commentator and appeared as a contestant on "Celebrity Apprentice."
