Star Jones On 'The View' Revamp: 'Smart Women Can Disagree Without Being Disagreeable'

Star Jones hopes the latest iteration of "The View" avoids an overload on bickering.

Jones, who was one of the original "View" panelists until her exit in 2006, discussed the series' latest revamp during a visit to HuffPost Live on Monday, when she chatted about her new role as the president of the Professional Diversity Network.

"The View" is famous for its on-air feuds, but Jones hopes the show can move away from that with its new cast, which includes Rosie Perez, Nicole Wallace and the return of former co-host Rosie O'Donnell.

"Smart women can disagree without being disagreeable, and I hope they don't fall into that trap," Jones said. "Disagreeable is not watchable. It's not likable."

Jones is optimistic that the series can find its footing again.

"I think they can do this show and have that show grow in a way where there is a spirited, wonderful debate, but [also] camaraderie," she said. "That's the thing that I missed about 'The View,' is the camaraderie we had initially."
