On Today this morning, Donny and Dr Nancy both said that the ladies of The View owed Star an apology for how they treated her yesterday. I totally agree. Donny said they were "cruel" and he wondered if they did it to boost their ratings. Dr Nancy said she felt bad because she could clearly see hurt on Star's face.
There is a clip of it on Today's home page.
I think that Star's comment to Barbara Walters at the very end (thanking Barbara... because of her, woman are on TV...) was pure sarcasm! I don't think she was kissing up one bit - I think she was getting a dig in, and good for her!
