Star Jones on The Gayle King Show to discuss new book, Satan’s Sisters

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Today, I gave the Gayle King show a shot and I was not disappointed because it was actually pretty good! The most interesting part of the show was when she interviewed former co-host of ABC’s The View and current contestant on Celebrity Apprentice, Star Jones. Star Jones has been doing the rounds on some television shows promoting her latest novel, “Satan’s Sisters”, which I believe will be an interesting read.

Inevitably, the topic of Star Jones’s rivalry with Nene Leakes of The Bravo show, The Real Housewives of Atlanta, came up. I was very impressed with the way in which Star Jones handled herself during this conversation and on the show, in general. She refrained from reducing herself to petty insults and name calling and instead shifted the focus of the conversation to her reasons for going on Celebrity Apprentice.

According to Star Jones, the reason why she went on Celebrity Apprentice was to promote her charity, which focuses on bringing awareness to the seriousness of heart disease.

In my opinion, Star’s shining moment was when Gayle asked her if she was worried about her reputation with regards to her rivalry with Nene and she gave the best answer that I have heard to that question:

“I am the author of the ONLY dictionary that defines me”

Yes, indeed, we are the only authors of the only dictionary that defines each one of us. I think that we could all learn from Star Jones; let’s stop focusing on what other people think or say about us and focus on our own thoughts and actions. There is so much opportunity for growth when we start to be mindful of how we want to define ourselves and then take the necessary actions to make that vision a reality.

I’m about to hop online and order “Satan’s Sisters.” I’ll let you know what I think when I’ve finished reading. At the very least, I look forward to being entertained and intrigued!
