Star Jones Recovering from Cardiac Surgery

The former 'View' cohost is hospitalized for a planned procedure, and reportedly on the mend

Former View cohost Star Jones is currently recovering from cardiac surgery, which was performed on Wednesday in a New York Hospital.

According to a statement from her rep, the 47-year-old's procedure was "preplanned" and was a follow-up to a previous surgery Jones had after she developed a thoracic tumor nearly 30 years ago.  

In August 2003 Jones had gastric bypass surgery, which led to her losing 160 pounds.

She turns 48 on March 24.
