Embracing the Dork Side....Because Life is Too Short to Take Yourself Too Seriously

Thank goodness!

I'm so pleased E! was listening.....
(updated, as I'm told the link didn't work properly...)

From the New York Post:
September 29, 2005 -- STAR Jones didn't jump from E! — she was pushed.
Jones, who grated on the nerves of viewers and E! execs by continually promoting her wedding last year, made her final appearance as the cable channel's red carpet reporter at the Emmys this month.
The option in her contract for another year was not picked up. "One year was enough," our insider said.
Jones claims the decision was hers, and told The Post last week she'll be too busy promoting her book, "Shine: A Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Journey to Finding Love" (Collins), due out Jan. 6.
The tome is about her meeting and mating with hubby Al Reynolds.
"I couldn't make any commitments next year beyond supporting the book and doing 'The View,' " Star said. "I want to make sure I do my everyday job very well."
But PAGE SIX predicted her exit from E! months ago when execs groused about her ratings and the way she pressured stars on the red carpet into coming onto "The View."
"This has been in the works for a while," said one insider. "She just didn't do well on the red carpet and E! is letting her blame the book, but they were the ones telling her they wouldn't be picking up her option."
The source then snickered, "Do you think Star would give up good money and a load of freebies from the goody bags and the dresses for a book? No way."

(Because, you know, with all that's happening in the world today, this is really important stuff. *Cough.)

Okay, I give...what did E! say? I clicked and didn't want to sign up with the NY Post as the article didn't go through. So please, spill the beans.
