Star Jones is slamming her former "View" co-hosts, saying “Those girls were hateful" during her departure from the show in 2006.

In an interview in the November issue of Essence magazine, Jones admits to “falling into a depression” after losing her self-titled Court TV show last year; talks about her ongoing dispute with Barbara Walters (“Barbara set me up”); and discusses her divorce from Al Reynolds, which was finalized in September.

Responding to Reynolds’ infamous YouTube videos, in which he stated he “still loves” Star, Jones responds: “I’m not in love with him.”

Jones is currently in talks to make a non-scripted TV comeback, and was photographed kissing executive chef Herb Wilson in the stands at last month’s U.S. Open.
