Has Star's Star Burst?

The View may not be big enough for Rosie O'Donnell and Star Jones.

According to Page Six, Star Jones Reynolds "has been told to hitch up her hefty wagonload of freebies and waddle off into the sunset." As in canned, fired, axed.

ABC will announce this week that the big-boned talking head is out at The View, a source close to the inner workings of the late-morning gabfest tells Page Six. What network brass won't say is that she's being unceremoniously ousted at the direct behest of the show's grand dame Barbara Walters and the incoming Rosie O'Donnell.... How Jones' star has fallen -- just a few weeks ago, she had hoped to succeed Meredith Vieira as the moderator of the crew. But Walters wasn't going to let that happen because "she hates her. Really can't stand her," a source told us last week.

They also report that Oprah's BFF, Gayle King, may step in for Star... though I find that highly unlikely. Oprah would give Gayle her own show at the drop of a hat -- there's no need for her to share the spotlight with a bunch of screaming women. Though Oprah has scheduled an upcoming appearance on The View... and she rarely does one of those. Hmmm...

Would you be excited to see Star get canned? Are you a fan? It seems like a lot of people can't stand her. Either way, express yourself below.
