Star Jones, Barbara Walters Battle Spreads to Internet

The battle between Star Jones and Barbara Walters just got dicier - and now it's spread to cyberspace.

Jones is advising her fans via her Web site, starjones.com, on how to protest her firing directly with ABC officials, including ex-boss Walters.

Jones' site was updated yesterday for the first time in months, with contact info, and a link to abc.com, on how fans can reach out and blast Walters, "View" executive producer Bill Geddie and ABC Daytime President Brian Frons directly.

Jones wrote that "several thousand visitors" to her site had requested the contact info.

She also posted a new message on the site, thanking her fans for "your words of encouragement while going through such a challenging few days."

Jones shocked ABC and Walters last Tuesday with her on-air announcement that she was leaving "The View" - pre-empting ABC's own plans to announce her departure.

The incident has created a rift between Jones and Walters, who said she felt "betrayed" by Jones.

"I must say that had it not been for all of your e-mails and letters, this past week would have been very difficult," Jones writes on her site.
